With the advice of AVS member pieandchips, thought it would be a good idea to create a thread where Samsung F8500 owners can quickly communicate with each other on various "bugs" that currently exist with the display.
One of the biggest arguments between owners is the use of Cinema Smooth.
Many of us have argued that without Cinema Smooth enabled, the F8500 picture has a "soap opera" effect to it in both 3D and 2D mode.
Others have argued that Cinema Smooth needs to be turned off to get rid of the "soap opera" effect.
Turns out the reason so many owners were getting conflicting results is due to a bug that is inherent in the display, as of Firmware 1117.
I want to thank wxman, muffinmcfluffin and pieandchips for the following fix....
I am interested to see how many other owners this fix works for and if we can all finally come to agreement that Cinema Smooth is not good for this display in 2D or 3D.
And, moving forward, we can use this thread to report any other bugs/fixes with this display.
