Push the "source" button on your remote. Using the touchpad, highlight the input you wish to rename (don't click it). Move up on the touchpad (you'll see a little checkmark by the input indicating that's the one you're editing) and select the "tools" menu (should be highlighted). Select "edit name," choose "PC" from the list, then click OK.

Thanks.  Went and read about it (and see it discussed earlier in this thread now).  Gonna give it a try.  I assume once I rename it back to HDMI that all my settings will still be intact.

IMO, a better choice to defeat CE Dimming in game mode is: set Brightness to 53 and white balance r/g/b-offset to 18. This leaves the color saturation intact and mostly eliminates Samsung's wretched dimming antifeature.

Got my 60f7100 on the 23rd. I'm using Pirates settings with firmware 1118.
It has been stated before that Direct TV looks just ok, I would agree with that.
I watch a lot of hockey, I noticed that with the bright white ice seems to overdrive the picture.
With an overhead view the players uniforms look fuzzy and washed out. But on the same broadcast, of there is a rink side view,
the pq looks much better. I will need to play with the settings to get this right.

Watched a lot of bluerays on christmas and was very pleased with the image.
Like afew people here having issues with Direct TV genie and Samsung playing a game of tag with turning-off-on.

I'll give this a try too.  But game mode does not save settings, correct?  So if I change to game mode, then change the brightness and rgb offset...when I change back off game mode, I assume I will also have to change my brightness and rgb offset back to what I had it before?

Game mode has unique setting, so this isn't a problem.

Just a question related to the separate picture memory for 2d and 3d modes. My setup is a 46 inch F7100 with all of my components connected to a Denon receiver with a single HDMI cable connected to the TV through the ARC HDMI2.

I was trying to enable separate 3D picture settings but when I switch the view back to 2D via the remote button, the 3D settings (minus the 3D image itself) still stick. When I go into the menu, it appears 3D "mode" is still on but it doesn't appear to be switchable. Is this controlled by the BD player (Sony)?

I am having issues with 3d programming as I continue to only see double images with my brand new 55 inch Samsung. I experience this with 3D content on Verizon cable as well as Samsung 3D blue ray player. I have hdmi cables connected between TV and cable box, as well as between TV and blue ray player. I have made sure to sync 3D glasses within one foot of the TV prior to watching content. I have firmware 1117. Thanks in advance for your help.
post #3970 of 5012

What do you guys recommend the backlight to be? And what are your picture options. I use dishnetwork with hdmi connection. On the dish receiver i am using 1080i since it doesnt have 1080p.

It kind of depends on the lighting conditions of your room. Many are dropping down to below 10; however, I'm currently up to around 14 based on my current experimentation with the Samsung BD Wise functionality. It's bright especially considering I have a light controlled room with no windows but not over powering. Initially upon first connection I dropped straight to 7 in movie mode and was reasonably pleased but again, I did not have to contend with other lighting issues in the room.

What are you using for picture options? Are you using pirate cove settings?

BD Wise function that is supposed to "talk" to the 7100 for "optimal pictture". So...um....yeah, wow! Please, take that with a grain of salt. Upfront, I know this is pushing the light a bit; however, I can't say it still isn't a phenomenal picture. I'm back to testing the Avengers when Black Widow is first talking to Banner and the colors and detail being pulled out of that dark scene are bountiful. I never realized how colorful her outfit is in that scene.

BD Wise bumped...

Backlight to 14
Contrast to 100
Brightness to 45

Dynamic Contrast to Medium
Black Tone to Dark
My color space is still on Native

Color Tone to Standard
Clean View is Low
(I'm still on custom AMP at 2,2,On)
Cinema Blacck is Low

I'm definitely seeing things I had never seen before and I can see past the "brighter image being a better picture" deception. But the clarity and saturation that I'm picking up far outweighs the brightness because this is far from retina burn as far as I'm concerned. What I don't like or feel is off are the blues and skin tones but not by much and I figure to be easily correctable.

Folks, as I type, Iron Man just lit Stark Tower and is being de-armored and this is as close to a 3D image as you can get from a non 3D source! I'm going to further test less colorful, more "natural" material soon, perhaps Skyfall, to further assess but what I see right now is insane. Are these settings exclusive to the Samsung BD Wise function, I don't know. Speaking of...

The players settings are....

TV Aspect Ratio - 16:9 Full
BD Wise - On
Resollution - BD Wise
HDMI Color Format - Auto (vs YCbCr, RGB Standard, RGB Enhanced)
HDMI Deep Color - Auto

These settings are Samsung BD player exclusive but I put this information in for those that also have Samsung players or for similar comparative purposes for whatever player they arre using. One more thing, even with these adjustedd settings I'm still not getting any panel flaws in any scene.

More later....

P.S....Romanoff walking in of the deck of the Helicarrier....all I'll say is crystal clear stitching....Those that are interested will know what I mean. smile.gif

This is where I am currently utilizing the BD Wise function. I havve a previous post with my very first settings, which werre minimal (I still considered it out the box settings). I reduced the backlight to 7, changed to film mode and was on warrm 2 setting. My opinion of it all is to take the adjustments slow. Start with a few things by eye and work from there. I started with the backlight because I know I typically don't like too bright a picture based on my prior tv. Then I just made a ccouple of adjustments to see how things looked and took a couple of days to view. If you know the tv's picture is way off to your tastes then you might try pirates settings (I have not tried them yet and based on my current settings getting much change is going to be difficult sell for me).

The thing is everyone's environment is different along with their tastes. Add to that the possibility of possible differences in panels and who knows where your settings should be. That's why I suggest taking it slow with a few key adjustments at a time and work from there. Good luck!

After the 3D glasses are paired, you still have to press the glasses button after starting the 3D content & seeing the 3D double image displayed on the screen. When the glasses light turns Green & stays green for a period of time after pressing the glasses button (the 3D image is now detected by the glasses), the glasses should now be set to ON for 3D viewing & a single image/3D picture should now be seen with the glasses. Afterwards, the glasses will turn themselves Off when exiting the 3D mode. I hope this helps you out.

U like or love it?
post #3980 of 5012
Thank you Mgh26. I will try that later on this evening.
post #3981 of 5012
The 60 inch? Yes I love this tv has a great picture when u get the settings u like. The internet browser is very responsive and 3d which I've only watched maybe 2 movies on it look amazing and blu ray movies I have a lot of those and they look amazing as well Its very tedious at times getting things to Look or Behave like u want them to but would I buy this tv again of course.
post #3982 of 5012
Anyone think it's a good idea to have a mutual reference BD or two for common picture evaluation?

It's worth a try, thank you!

I have been looking at this particular model for sometime but I have a large center speaker that can potentially block the bottom part of the TV unless I rest the TV on it. Could anyone please give me the TV stand's "feet" dimensions? If it's too wide, I'll need to come up with another solution that doesn't involve hanging the TV on the wall (I live in an apartment).

Thanks.

Give me a few minutes.

The stand by itself is Lenght= 26", width= 12", height= 5".

How do I change the start screen (home page) when I first turn on the TV?

Currently, (out of the box), when the tv turns on it goes to the main Smart Hub screen showing my TV source in a window. I want it to go directly to fully display my HDMI 2 source.

Thanks a lot. Hmm...the stand would hang over just a little bit in that case.
