Does anyone of you use Google Chromecast?
Sometimes I want to view video from my phone on the TV but my only option is to use screen mirroring (smart things).
I think casting would be better than screen mirroring?

These OCB’s do generate a ton of heat.

One suggestion...if you have a spare fan laying around, maybe try placing it a foot or two away blowing direct air at the OCB to see if it makes a difference.

The tv will be on a stand which is 68" wide. The 75", is 66" wide and the 82" is 72" wide. Not sure if I am comfortable with the tv being larger than the stand.


Is there a consensus of which panel is preferred at each size"
14FT all day I wouold go with the 82" I watch a 80" from 10FT and 110" from 15FT.......I wish they where bigger too! 3" over hang is not much on your stand, I would not worry about that for one moment.

I can't speak for BJs and Walmart but the TVs sold at Costco are the same as what you get anywhere else. Unfortunately Costco only carries the Q60 and the Q70 from Samsung.

The reason i like to buy from Costco is because they extend the manufacturers warranty for 1 year for free and then an additional year if you buy with their credit card. They also have a no questions asked 90 day return period on electronics which is better than 30 days from Amazon.

I've had the TV for a couple months, game a while bunch, and this hasn't happened. My OCB is well ventilated though, being open on all sides and with 8" clearance on the top. Does anyone know if it has a fan? With the PSU inside I'd be a little surprised if it didn't.

Here's how it's setup now. I originally had it in the enclosed pillar on the top shelf with the DirecTV box. I have since moved it underneath the TV in that open cubbie with no change.

Same here. It’s my first time experiencing DSE and I’m having a hard time understanding what a “clean panel” is. Even when people post pictures of their “clean panels” I tend to see some. I guess we all have different tolerances.

That should be plenty of space for proper cooling.

I would still try a fan blowing on it though, just to see if it’s a heat issue or not.

I do a fair amount.

Best way is an app that has built in casting such as BEin Sports Connect. Quality is awesome and very responsive.

Next best way, if you have a Samsung phone, is Smart View. See attached, lower right corner. Mirrors your screen really well including landscape. There's also an app, but I don't find it reliable.

LocalCast app is a decent third party app worth a try if the suggestions above don't work.

PUBG isn't in HDR and I can not tell a difference in color between 4:2:0 and 4:4:4 but I can tell a huge difference between 60hz and 120hz. I wonder if it is just me.

No I'm in the same boat as you. I have to ship it back today, then wait up to 10 days after they receive the tv to get a refund. Then I get to order another tv and hope AGS doesn't damage this one. Samsung's policy is irritating. I'm sure they do it to prevent fraud but the waiting 2 plus weeks is outrageous.

Currently researching for my next purchase and curious whether the one connect box cable is rated for in-wall applications? I'm assuming the box can be mounted in a cabinet, if so, how warm does it get? Thank you.

Reading back a couple of posts it is stated that it gets hot. The OCB on my KS8000 got very hot.

Reading back over the last few pages shows that the new cable is not in-wall rated because it carries the power, but a number of people are running that way regardless.

haha right? We paid Samsung a significant amount of money for them to deliver a non-damaged product to our homes. Samsung is the one that didn't hold up their end of the bargain and now they are worried about us trying to scam them?

The whole thing is maddening, rather than continuing the fight for a replacement I should probably just send it back and play their game. I'm still holding out hope though.

Good luck with the next one, may the AGS odds forever be in your favor

Q9FN to Q90r... or Sony 900f?

Thanks to all the great information in this thread. I was hoping folks could offer their advice here:

I recently purchased a 65 inch Q9FN that suffered from bad DSE. I spoke with Samsung support (who was actually great to deal with) and they agreed to replace the Q9FN with a 65 inch Q90r.

My concerns are:
1) Is the new Q90r going to suffer from the same DSE as the Q9FN? I've still seen mixed reports on the uniformity of the Q90 series, but in general it appears to be better.. true?
2) I actually saw bad motion artifacts on the Q9FN. I had Auto Motion Plus enabled with Blur Reduction set to 5 and Judder Reduction set to 3.. so maybe that was my issue. Should I expect the Q90r to handle motion the same as the Q9FN?

I'm debating switching to a Sony 900f instead, which handles DSE and Motion better, but with a little less "punch" to the picture in my opinion. Silly to consider such a switch?

Sidenote: I found the Q9FN to almost be blindingly bright when viewing in a dark room. I had to drop the backlight to 8-10 under these conditions.. is this expected? Have folks found a universal backlight setting that can be applied to day and night viewing, or is it just expected to have to adjust the backlight based on your room/lighting conditions? (and yes, I'm aware of the ECO option, but I don't like the TV auto controlling the brightness based on perceived room settings).

Thanks for any advice folks can offer.

I can't compare to other sets so my comments on your main concerns probably won't matter much. That brightness though... I lower mine to 10 at night for SDR. If you want to leave it at one setting, 15 is enough to defeat indirect reflections but may be too bright at night. If you have any that get straight to your screen, 25-30 works for me.

I have difficult to decide if I should buy a 4K blu-ray player (Panasonic DP-UB9000) for my Q90R 75", or if I should just stick to streaming.
The player would cost me $1100.

What about an Xbox One X?

I did the same thing many years ago when the Sony Playstation 3 was a cheaper blu-ray than a standalone option. These consoles are essentially subsidized with the plan to make profit on games and accessories.

Nah. I never play games. And the Panasonic has better picture quality.
Hm, I think I'll buy the Panasonic. Netflix etc. is also lacking many titles (Netflix in Sweden has fewer titles than Netflix in USA).

The major advantage for that top-end Panasonic player is it's ability to adjust the playback for displays (such as front projectors) that cannot reach 4000 nits of brightness. The Q90R will easily do 2000 nits and there is little to be gained from the capabilities of the UB9000.

I have wondered recently about how much more 'perceptible' image quality one would get from one of the high end blu ray players vs. the Xbox One X. I would think that a high end gaming system has all the bells and whistles to put it on par but i could be wrong.

You might want to check out the Panasonic DP-UB820. I don't think it's been out a year yet and is a great blu-ray player that supports 4K Ultra HD, including HDR10+. It MSRP's for $499.99

Jagged Images...

Noticed another picture issue. The crawl on NBCSN was almost unreadable and when our local weather guy moved fast against the radar image "behind" him that his head would get jagged for a second. With AMP and DCV OFF I was VERY concerned. After some tinkering, I landed on Film Mode (a few options below DCV and AMP). Film Mode is for older video sources (Component and 1080i HDMI) to look smoother. It was set for Auto 1. When I turned it off, it "fixed" the issue. I can't remember if I initially set it or that setting was the default. Soooo... if you're watching something with a crawl and it's jaggy (not blurry or judder), try this setting... NBCSN was bad for me...

The major advantage for that top-end Panasonic player is it's ability to adjust the playback for displays (such as front projectors) that cannot reach 4000 nits of brightness. The Q90R will easily do 2000 nits and there is little to be gained from the capabilities of the UB9000.

You might want to check out the Panasonic DP-UB820. I don't think it's been out a year yet and is a great blu-ray player that supports 4K Ultra HD, including HDR10+. It MSRP's for $499.99
I'll buy the UB820 instead. I'll save $580. Thanks.

After going back and forth, I decided to grab the 3 Year warranty from Costco on the 82Q90R. Peace of mind for 3.2% of purchase price at bad. Crazy how they can price all TVs over $1000 at $99 dollars.
