Something like this. Press source to go to the port you want then click and hold down the enter button to go to options I think it tells you on the screen and you can change it in there. In regards to your other question PC mode makes the TV act like a monitor so no or almost no TV processing.

I tried that but when I get to "edit name" it only comes up with an onscreen keyboard to enter my own name (no PC option). Any ideas?

Do I need to butt out of the conversation? Seriously, just stop, you're just making it worse on yourself. Enough said?

And for the record, I hate arguing on the Internet with people. I'm just not a big fan of people who try to belittle others to inflate their own self-worth.

Samsung's website boasts that the h7150 can utilize the multi-link screen to multi-task (watch live TV while browsing apps). Has anyone figured out how to do this. I can only watch live TV while in the "On TV" page. All other pages show full screens of the Apps, Video, Games, etc... without the "dual screen". Has anyone figured this out?


Just to clarify, I am not asking about PIP.


Here is the description on their website and I have posted a picture our the TV showing the dual screen.


Dual Screen

Do two things at once with the multi-tasking Dual Screen. Browse the web, check social media or stream a video from YouTube while you watch TV. Research that famous golf swing while watching it in action on side-by-side screens.

haha....great advice and I hear you....but my TV is new and just want to make sure its a keeper before my return window expires. I see others posts screen shots that
show their screens uniformity and was curious as to how they get their display to check it with just a screen and no picture.

Use Samsung smart blu-ray instead?

Will be getting my 65" 7150 and a Samsung BD-H5900 smart blu-ray this week. Reading about the software update issues some are having so I was wondering if it might behoove me to utilize the smart functions via the blu-ray player and not connect the 7150 to the internet for now. I know I can disable the auto update setting on the 7150 but my understanding is that it will still download the updates as they become available and then prompt me if I'd like to install it every time I turn the set on.
Any thoughts on doing this?

Launching Multi-Link Screen

Press M.SCREEN on the Samsung Smart Control to launch Multi-Link Screen.

1. Press the Samsung Smart Control's M.SCREEN button while Multi-Link Screen is running. The Options menu appears.

I just tried the above, it works

I have notice that if you have your smart remote program to your cable box, it won’t let you change to PC mode, I’m with AT&T U-verse, what I did was change to a different HDMI output and then it let me change to PC mode.

Question about basic setup w/ xbox and receiver

Hey all,

I just got this TV and based on a lot I've read in this thread, it's highly recommended to use Game/PC mode for gaming consoles as it cuts the input lag down. My issue is this. I route all my devices through a receiver into one input on my TV, but if I want to use game mode for the Xbox, then I'd have to set that input on the TV and it would apply to everything coming through the receiver. Is there any way to get around this or am I going about it the wrong way? I just always thought you should have your receiver being the main device processing your bluray/xbox/ps3/etc and basically treat the TV like a monitor. Any and all advice is appreciated. Thank you so much.

Thanks, that worked! Just used HDMI 2 and then switched the cable over.

I notice that the update apparently fixed the sample and hold time (charging and discharging of LED crystals) so that there is no more "trailing" or ghost images from what I can tell so far...

UPDATE: I reverted AMP setting back to my old custom settings, which seem to still work well and look good without SOE...

Judder: 2
What's this about sample and hold times? I haven't updated to 2123 yet, but I have been disappointed by how smeary the image has looked when panning (dark colors in particular). If the latest update helps correct that I'll be so much happier.

Edit: 2123 doesn't look any different to me.

Calibration for 55" H7150, TS-01, update ver. 2123 users.

OK, so now that I have had time to get acquainted with the set I have some more definitive settings... I tried the various calibration settings suggested earlier on the thread (PC, CAL-DAY, Movie mode etc.) None of these will work for this version of the TV. They all end up looking like you are wearing green or yellow dirty tinted sunglasses. Getting into the expert calibrations menu, changing the input name, etc. are not needed on this configuration anymore. The color is, indeed, just about perfect as-is. Just use the default Standard mode and the settings below. The settings will vary by source, however. So use the "Current Source" option under "Apply Picture Mode."

If you are coming for plasma to LED you will have to get used to reduced picture quality and contrast. Resist the temptation to set the backlight to maximum to make up for the deficiency or your eyes will get tired very quickly. Best option is to reduce the light in your room and try to keep the Backlight to around 14-17. Here is the absolute best picture I could squeeze out of this set (if a setting is not listed use the default):


CABLE SETTINGS (HD 1080i, 780)
Picture Mode: Standard
Backlight: 14
Contrast: 95
Brightness: 46

Picture Size: Screen Fit

Advanced Settings:
Dynamic Contrast: Off (you may want to go to Low on some shows but it causes skin over saturation on most broadcasts)
Black Tone: Dark
Color Space: Native

Picture Options:
Color tone: Standard
Digital Clean View: Off
Mpeg Noise Filter: Off
Film Mode: Off
Auto Motion Plus: Off
Cinema Black Low


Sound Mode: Standard (the Movie and Surround setting produce a tinny sound on cable)



STREAMING CONTENT (Netflix, Vudu etc.)
Picture Mode: Standard
Backlight: 17
Contrast: 93
Brightness: 46

Picture Size: Screen Fit (if available)

Advanced Settings:
Dynamic Contrast: Low (go to Medium for animation)
Black Tone: Dark
Color Space: Native
Gamma: +2

Picture Settings:
Color Tone: Standard
Digital Clean View: Off
Mpeg Noise Filter: Off
Auto Motion Plus: Off

Sound Mode: Movie

Make sure you turn off all the Eco Solutions stuff under the System Settings.


Some Notes:
There will be considerable blurring and judder on some cable networks/shows. The Auto Motion Plus settings do little to help this and make the viewing experience unbearable (some people call this the "soap opera" effect but I think it looks more like some kind of weird "live human animation"). You should be dubious of anyone who tells you to enable this mode... The good news is that the blurring and judder virtually disappear when streaming HD content.


In my opinion, at an 8-10 foot viewing distance the 55" is a bit too big with full screen content. Letterbox movies look pretty good, however.

This is an inexpensive/cheap set so don't worry too much about the lackluster PQ. Just use it for now and spend the money you saved purchasing this TV to buy a good replacement for plasma when it becomes affordable (in 3-4 years probably).


Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.

Just one question: Did you perceive the movie mode as it came out of the box on this TV as one of those green/yellow tinted sunglasses pictures as well?

Well, speaking from my own experience, I use Movie mode with the newest firmware set to the (approx.) calibration posted here by by our glorious calibration leader and I'm not seeing anything like what is being written about above. This is with BDs thru an Oppo 103, from a DirectTV HD box, and streaming movies from my Mac via Plex. Are you WEARING dirty sunglasses?

As to this set being inexpensive/cheap, I guess it may be in comparison with high-end sets, but it sure doesn't seem "cheap" to me. Again, we all have different opinions and expectations, but the 55 7150 I bought last week is quite a nice device. I have no quibbles with it so far.

New here whos this glorious calibration leader, and where can I find the calibrations for my 65" H7150?

My goodness, while in the end everyone will certainly choose whatever settings they like (which is fine - to each his own), from calibration standpoint however, I'm practically "obligated" to discourage you or anyone for that matter from using those settings. Dynamic mode is the infamously worst mode ever created that's only used for scorching the screen for demo purposes in the stores. Please don't take this personally, but I almost don't know if you are joking or being serious. That's the farthest setting from where a calibrated TV should be - literally the complete opposite:

- Backlight is about double of what it should be - total scorcher
- Brightness high and likely doesn't go as deep with black color as it should or as the TV is capable of (depth of blacks is one of THE most important values for picture depth and quality)
- Sharpness WAY too high (actually should be zero, but I understand if someone prefers a few notches higher - but definitely below 10). At 55 you have so many artifacts and grains in your picture, I'm not sure how you're not noticing it.
- Color too high at 55, over-saturated
- Color temperature exact opposite of the correct color temperature for broadcast material (be it movies, TV, sport, Blu Ray - doesn't matter) - should be Warm2 and you have it on cold...

I only say this with best intentions and encourage you to maybe read up on TV calibration a bit and maybe get an inexpensive calibration DVD (like Disney's WOW disc) just to get started. Since you have joined AVS and show interest in adjusting your picture, I certainly recommend finding out a bit more about what to look for and which targets and references to go by when doing so...

Again, if in the end you just want the brightest scorching picture with no interest in correctly displaying any content, then by all means I guess... Cheers

I suspect that he is just not used to watching actually correct color temperature. Many people are used to looking at computer monitors and tablets, all of which generally run on colder colors, whites are often bluish, etc. Most mainstream consumers do not realize that that's not what the correct color temperature is for TVs.
TV, movies etc. are all recorded according to specific standards, which is terms of color is D65 (6500 Kelvin color temp.). So when calibrating a TV, the goal is to set the color temp. to D65 in order to accurately display the content as filmed and as intended. On this TV it is "warm 2" that gives the correct D65 color temp, while other color tones are colder and more for monitor type use and run at maybe 5000 Kelvin - so quite a bit off from what the content is recorded and broadcasted at...
Some may think they are seeing "yellowish or greenish tint" whereas what they are actually seeing is the lack of blue and cold tint of the picture they seem to be used to, but which isn't correct. I always encourage anyone who didn't realize it yet, to try to simply watch the movie mode (even if only at it's default settings, which are indeed warm 2 for color tone) and give themselves a week of watching TV that way to let their eyes "re-calibrate" themselves. I often make an example of a movie theater (which is indeed properly calibrated), as this is an easy reference everyone is familiar with - so the TV should actually look a lot like the picture at the movies, and not like a scorching monitor of some kind...

I haven't changed White Balance per Z-Mad, but everything else he's suggested I have implemented- except I moved sharpness up a few notches, as it "just looks better" to me. Though I may back off a bit as I acclimate to the TV.

My whites are white, not yellow. Blacks are black when they should be, but not all blacks are densely black, some of them are more transparently black, which is what they should be (otherwise all you see are shadows). If contrast is too high and blacks set too dark that's what you end up with. I spent thirty years as a professional photographer and the quest for detail in the blacks of my b&w photography (and in the color work as well) was always very important. TVs are the same.

One of the nice things about this Samsung is, when you go into settings and and drag the cursor from Warm 2 down to the colder areas, you can see the changes on the screen without even implementing the setting. Originally I set for Warm 1, but as I got used to the TV I moved it up to Warm 2. Sometimes it takes a few days to get used to visual (or auditory) changes.

As for Vivid setting, my father-in-law uses that and I always get a headache when I'm over at his place watching his set. The same headache I get when I go to a store selling TVs and look at the array of models. Vivid is the "look at me" setting, but it has no basis in the reality that we as humans see, and I would guess that it is not good for our eyes. I find Standard too bright as well, for the most part, although some TV shows may look ok with it.

Yes. Also, is new build (Sept. 14) and made in Tijuana. What about your movie mode and out of the box and version/build?

--Picture menu--
Mode: CAL-DAY
Backlight: 8 (this is good all-around, but for nighttime 6 is actually enough, and for bright rooms during day one can bump it up to 10 or as needed...)
Contrast: 99
Brightness: 46
Sharpness: 0 (if compelled to give a little extra sharpness, one can go to +3 without introducing artifacts, but not beyond that)
Color: 50
Tint: G48/R52

Have you had to make any changes to your calibration settings since the software updates?

Hey guys. I had a quick question. If I'm routing all my devices through a Receiver and have it all set to an HDMI coming out to display on the TV, is there any benefit to using one or the other HDMI? I saw that one is ARC capable (I know what it is but don't know if there's any need to use it), one that says STB ( I don't know what that is), and one that says DVI. Does it matter? Thanks in advance. I'm slowly reading through the forum but I've found it difficult to come up with a good enough search to find the answer myself. I saw Z-Mad was still very active here so hopefully I'll get his or someone else's attention.

Thanks in advance!

No advantage in your setup. Most times those labels are just for helping identify the port, or what you plugged into it easily (the one with ark being an exception) STB just stands for "set top box" but it's still just a standard HDMI port at the end of the day. Some TVs may have a port that is specifically used for certain HDMI versions or even offer lower display lag (I think some LGs are like that) In general though it doesn't usually matter what one you're plugged into unless you know you want to use specific features like ARK.

I never paid much attention to 3D, but upon buying the 7150, I learned that an upgrade had made the PS3 3D capable.
So I tried to test out the 3D feature last night using my PS3 directly to an HDMI input on the TV. (I didn't think my older receiver could pass the signal.) It kept giving me a message that my 3D blu-ray player does not recognize that it is connected to a 3D TV.

I have read that a "regular" HDMI cable can be used for 3D instead of needing a "high-speed" cable. Is this so? That's all I have at the moment.

Anything I may not be doing correctly to have the TV properly recognized as a 3D TV? I also don't understand the icons which show the side-by-side figure or the top and bottom figure. I tried with both. Both just made the background of the PS3 menu enlarge to such a degree it ran off the screen.

Is there perhaps a setting on the PS3 I have to change?

Thank you for any suggestions.

*edit* 12/8/14 - It seems to be working fine with a high-speed cable now.
