I went ahead and ordered the 55" RU8000 today as best buy has a really nice sale going right now for only $550. Seemed like too good of a deal to pass up, am upgrading from an old 58" Panasonic 1080p set. Am really hoping this new set will be compatible with the OSSC for retro gaming & that the upscaling ability of the set will be good all around. Fingers crossed!


Speaking of which, how are the colors on this set? Do they pop? Anyone do any retro gaming on the set? Am curious how lower resolutions look & if they upscale well. I have upscalers for retro games that scale up to 1080p but still, I also have a RetroTink that linedoubles to 480p so am hoping this set can handle 480p decently without it looking too terrible.

Wait, I can't delete or even edit my posts? Sorry mods, am still learning as I have never posted here before. If a mod could delete my previous two posts that would be appreciated.


I do want to say that I know a lot of ppl are saying that Samsung sets, especially the 8000 series and below, are not that good of a value anymore, but I think some fail to look at the whole picture. Sure, it lacks the brightness & colors of other comparably priced sets, but it has other things that those sets lack. The 8000 series has really good motion options & excellent response time compared to most in it's price range, and also seems to have better processing than most, meaning lower res stuff will usually look better than on a more budget minded set like a Hisense. Those things are worth taking into consideration. I thought it was very much worth it at the reduced price of $550, as I really couldn't find anything else with this sort of response time and overall quality for that price.

Just purchased the UN65RU8000 and trying to use it without the cable box (cut the cord). Three issues...
1. The Samsung Universal Guide doesn't include the YouTube TV or AT&T TV Live channels.

2. YouTube TV won't auto-start when the TV turns on like other channels. Also, no previews show up on the Hub. I spoke with Samsung and YouTube TV and it seems to be an issue with the app.

3. The Vizio soundbar does not auto-start when the TV turns on. Instead, I have to change the volume to get it started.

I'm interested in knowing if others have the same issues.

Thanks.

Drew

RU8000 reported frame skipping issue

Can someone please tell me if the occurrence of frame skipping in 1080p @ 120 Hz and 1440p @ 120 Hz on the RU8000, as reported by RTINGS.COM has been fixed with a firmware update? That same website reported the issue was also affecting the Q60R, Q70R, Q80R and Q90R models as well, but that a firmware update was released and successfully fixed the issue.

I'm interested in purchasing this TV for PC gaming purposes and I'd really like to be able to utilize the 120 Hz native refresh rate that Samsung claims the panel in the RU8000 is capable of. Otherwise, I'm either going to have to go with the Q60R, which is more expensive, or find another brand/model that is able to supply me with what I desire. Honestly, I've spent two weeks researching and I'm about ready to give up. I really couldn't find any other panels within my price range (under 1K, but really more like $500-$700) other than the LG SM8600.

Thanks in advance for anybody who answers and tries to help me. I really appreciate it.

The 2019 QLED lineup shares the same firmware as the RU8000 so if the issue was software I would expect that it is now corrected with the RU8000 as well.

Thank you so much. I have been looking for an answer to this for a week. I'm definitely buying this TV immediately.

Got another question.

I'm using this television as a PC monitor for mainly PC gaming purposes. When I connect my PC to the television, it automatically assigns the HDMI port source type as PC. In doing so, many of the settings become no longer available. In your opinion, should I choose something else as the source type instead of PC or will I be fine missing the now non-functional settings?

I think the picture is pretty good with the PC source setting and the motion performance is excellent thanks to the 120 Hz native refresh rate. I briefly tried selecting Game Console and the picture looked different, and I didn't feel like messing with the picture at that moment. It might be a good option to select, but I wasn't really sure and I thought I would come on here and get some opinions from others first.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Would it be possible for someone to measure the distance between the feet on the 65"

Would it be possible for someone to measure the distance between the feet on the 65" UN65RU8000FXZA? I need to know if it will fit on my current TV stand.

Thank you in advance for any help,

I don’t use my TV as a monitor but I think PC mode is designed for quick response times. I’m not sure what is disabled but if game mode gives you more options I’d say go for it. Game mode is also designed to keep input lag low.

How do I test for this frame skipping issue? I am sending 1080p/120hz from a PC.

I saw these settings and I’m curious are these for SDR or HDR. My settings change depending on the content I’m watching. Haven’t found a lot of info about calibrating HDR settings even Rtings.com says leave most of them the same and only have calibrations for SDR. This is the first tv I have had that switches the setting depending on what I’m watching it is kind of annoying to be honest but it is what it is. any other suggestions thanks.

1335.0 firmware is out, with a release date of Nov 26 2019. USB file update is available on the support page. I attempted a wireless update, but it only updated me from 1303 to 1315. I held off updating until I had a problem, which was Freesync not working. Freesync is working again for me on 1315. I haven't tried 1335 yet.

The usual Samsung release notes are useless, but a German Samsung forum provides more detail:


2019 QLED TVs and RU series


Update Version 1303.7 - June 2019
New information from 26.6.19: A preparatory update for the HD + service.
Improvement of AirPlay (upscaling and decryption have been improved)

Update version 1312.7 - August 2019
HDMI cable self-diagnostics has been introduced.
The connectivity to soundbars has been improved.
The Universal Guide has been improved.

Update Version 1315.4 - August 2019
Fixed an issue that could cause flickering images of certain HDCP content.

Update Verion 1318.0 - August 2019
Generally image adjustments for the 8K models

Update Verion 1335.0 - November 2019
An error has been fixed that could lead to freezing while zapping.
An error in interaction with SKY Q (flickering) has been fixed.
The automatic HDMI detection has been improved.
An error that could lead to picture dropouts has been fixed.

Those are for SDR. It is unfortunate, but this TV is not very bright when viewing HDR so I avoid using HDR altogether.

Thanks for that very useful link, ceevee. I can indeed confirm the automatic HDMI detection has been improved in 1335 as one of my devices that was not automatically detected is now detected. I've been using my set with the new firmware for a while and have nothing negative to report like I did with 1303.7 which caused my RU8000 to freeze up because it made the CPU always run even when the set was idle.

HDR looks great on this set if you tweak the settings properly. If you are in movie mode make sure to engage the Contrast Enhancer setting and set it to High while watching HDR content. It is turned off by default while in movie mode which can make the picture look very dim. Additionally, depending on your room, you may want to either increase the gamma to +1 or the brightness to +1/+2. Otherwise leave everything at default while in movie mode and make sure Adaptive Brightness is disabled in the intelligent mode setting and everything under Eco Solution is disabled (all of this can be found under the General sub menu).

No problem. Yeah everything you set while viewing HDR will be remembered next time you watch HDR and disabled as soon as you exit HDR. When you switch between modes like Movie, Standard, etc they all have their own settings that get stored for HDR. Also, the TV will not automatically switch to Movie mode from Standard mode if you were previously watching SDR content in one mode and HDR content starts playing.

Depends on what the source device is. If you’re using the built in Samsung apps it can’t be done. If you’re using an Apple TV 4K you set the mode to 4K SDR 60Hz and leave match range disabled (recommended settings are SDR 4K with match range and frame rate enabled). This will force output to 4K SDR instead of HDR. The TV you have is fully capable of HDR so if you want play with it to see the difference but you should be able to find settings that work for your viewing room with HDR content. Have fun and play around with the settings.

You can disable HDR on your PS4 in these menus. Most devices that you connect to your TV have such a setting so you can go SDR-only.

I’ll preface this that I am not trying to perfect the picture quality, just expect a better experience than my 5 year old LCD I replaced.

I recently picked up a 65” RU8000 and have been navigating the options to get it where I want it, but one issue I cannot solve is what seems to be a juddering effect along the top and bottom edge of the 16:9 image where it meets the black bars and also for small text on the screen (think fine print etc.). It’s almost a flickering/shimmering effect for the text and video edges against the black bars. This happens in HD, have not tinkered with 4K.

I’ve turned off and on all the motion and judder smoothing features and nothing seems to address this. Has anyone had experience with this? My previous non 4K TV had no issue with this. I’ve also just come across a few scenes of basic fast on screen movement that you would think was filmed with a brick with how bad the lag and skipping was due to action.

I have a 75" downstairs ready to go on the wall but I've noticed a slight curve in the bezel across the top. It's still on the box base but I'm hesitant to put it up at all.

I've never had anything bigger than my 55MU which is dead flat when viewing from the side. Samsung text support says it's designed that way but I'm paranoid it's to avoid another return. I put a flat edge corner to corner and it deflects about 1/3". IMG: https://i.imgur.com/CnHo8Zz_d.jpg?ma...idelity=medium

Can anyone confirm?

This a quick idea of what I’m referring too. I also cannot get rid of motion on most shows at this point.

I've never seen anything like that on any source I use. What device are you using? Is it a cable box?

I think I know what you're talking about despite that blurry photo. The overall look of the back of the RU8000 is a curvy design and there's a slight curve across the top so the bezel curves but not the screen. Here's a reference photo. You can see the curve when you look at the portion of the top of the bezel in the back.

You can see the curve when you look at the portion of the top of the bezel in the back.

That's the first evidence to it being meant to be that way that I've seen. Trouble is I went to Best Buy and theirs is much straighter. And the Samsung floor rep there said it's probably got shipping damage as the curve isn't really uniform.

I need to put it on the wall to measure for speakers anyways so I'll check the panel before I go to the trouble of exchange. Thx for your time!

I just bought a 55" RU8000 yesterday and I'm using it as my pc monitor. So far the it's been good but I have encountered some issues and I was wondering if anyone else was experiencing this.



Whenever I set the resolution to [email protected] I experience lag and motion blurring when watching videos. Videos include playing video files and streaming off websites like Youtube and it affects all video resolutions that I have played whether I was playing a 720p, 1080p or 4k video. If I change the resolution to [email protected] or [email protected]/[email protected]/[email protected] it will play fine, the issue only exists when playing videos on [email protected] Has anyone experienced this and know how to fix this?


The other issue I have is there's no option to set the resolution at [email protected] even the specs say it supports it. I'm only able to use [email protected] Has anyone actually been able to use [email protected] on the RU8000?


My pc system:
Cpu: i7 4790K
Gpu: Nvidia GTX 760
Ram: 32GB
OS: Win7 64bit Pro
Using HDMI 2.0 cable

Loving this TV so far. Picked the 65" up at the local warehouse club on Black Friday for sub $800. I was going to get the Vizio P Series Quantum X for $999 because the picture on that set is so fantastic, but I couldn't get over the crappy remote and plastic screen and questionable build quality issues I have had with Vizio in the past. So far, the TV is nice. I do wish it had local dimming, but oh well. for sub $800, you can't beat it.
