I tried for the first time to play an .mkv file with HDR10+ on my TV (un55mu8500 on latest firmware) using the internal player. I don't know how to confirm if it's playing it as it should, the info on the player bar still display a normal HDR logo.


Anybody tried it? Thanks.

does anyone else have an issue with their set turning off right after you just turned it on for the first time of the day? I turn the tv on for the first time of the day, tv menu screen loads up and right away, it powers back off again. I usually wait 30secs and power the tv back on with no issue and it wont happen again for a couple days, but it has consistently been like this for months. Only reason I've never done anything about it is because the picture quality is perfect to me and have no issues with any kind of screen deformities, that I can see at least, but I have the warranty through bestbuy should the tv fail one day and I'm just wondering if this is an early sign of a failing unit.

If I turn my TV on (and it slowly goes to no signal screen because my source is off for the selected input) then I need to keep the remote aimed at TV for 5-10 seconds until no signal screen appears, otherwise it might turn off like you experienced.

Doesn't always happen but keeping the remote aimed at TV prevents it from happening. Otherwise, make that the selected input has the connected source powered on before the TV is powered on.

I got the 1270.3 update via the TV wifi connection. It prompted me automatically. Happen a week or two ago. No sure what difference it makes...

Tried another movie, same result, it keeps showing and HDR logo instead an HDR10+ as it should. I think that my TV (on latest firmware) can't play HDR10+ movies yet.

Yes, there is no way to actually tell if we are seeing HDR10+. But what LEGAL content are you using since there isn’t anything released by Samsung to demonstrate HDR10+. We’ve been waiting for years now.

Unfortunately, the info banner on the TV does not differentiate between HDR10+ and HDR10. If you have a UHD Blu-ray player such as the UBD M8500 that supports HDR10+, you can use the info banner on the player to see if it is detecting HDR10+ on the HDMI connection. Here is a screenshot hooked up to my KS8000 that does not support HDR10+. Note at the top it says HDR10+, however, at the bottom it says HDR10. If HDR10+ is supported by your TV the bottom section will also say HDR10+ (the movie playing is A Beautiful Planet).

Can anyone recommend a wall mount for the 82" It's going to be slightly above eye level so would need some tilt but I want it as close to the wall as possible.

Kanto 40" - 90" Full-Motion TV Mount had been working well for me. Got it from Costco with the TV.

Thanks all you MU8000 folks for this thread, just spent the last hour+ catching up on things since there is no thread for my set (MU9000).

I have really enjoyed my set but now have a 4K player (Sony UPBX700) and a Chromecast Ultra, as well as more time to look at stuff

Basically I have everything going into my receiver (Denon X2200W) over HDMI, and then one HDMI from my receiver to the ridiculous connect box thing (HDMI 4 ARC).

I know a few people are really down on ARC but hasn't given me (at least apparent to me) problems.

SO, just wanted to confirm my SOUND understandings / few questions.

- Due to eARC and set limitations (mentioned in this rtings article but our sets were not tested), we are never going to get true uncompressed / unprocessed advanced audio (ex. Atmos. 7.1) back to our receivers at all?
- The best remaining option for getting the best possible audio back to a receiver (from TV Netflix app, for example) is to send it over Bitstream DD or DTS (which will still be downprocessed to 5.1 apparently)? It is wonky how the only option is PCM if you have nothing playing on the TV, but by randomly playing something (ex. VUDU app), you can then configure the sound for the Bitstream options.
- So I guess from an audio perspective, the best option is to not use any TV apps (and use my Chromecast Ultra instead) so that all unprocessed audio is hitting my receiver first? A pain to use my phone more instead of the remote, but it is reassuring to get real video/ audio information displayed on the TV / Receiver, whereas Samsung makes it very obscure for their native apps.
