You can try my HDR settings from a few posts earlier and see how that looks. As for the "UHD color" setting to enable HDR from each HDMI input, I think that terminology has changed to "input signal plus", still in the external device manager menu.

Thanks again. You know, I did fire up Master Chief Collection tonight in anticipation of playing some Halo Reach, and I did see that this game offers some HDR settings that definitely alleviated some of the dim picture I am seeing with Disney+. I was able to get D+ looking better but it's still fairly dim compared to HDR10 disabled. I can definitely tell because even the XBox menu is darker when it switches over. I've tried turning contrast and gamma up, but the whole image still feels a little dark, almost like the backlight isn't maxed out. I'm contemplating just keeping HDR10 off, as I'm not sure if this TV will even show many of the benefits of HDR anyway.

Can anyone on this thread comment on the most recent firmware update (1290.4). Any observations on color, brightness, or anything else regarding picture quality? Did anything change for the worse, or better?

You are in the RU 7100 Owner's thread which is on Firmware ver1335.0.

I guessing you have a NU 7100 and are posting in the wrong thread?

Typically 2.2 in Bight/well lit room. BT1886 in an average to dark room.

But do the other calibration settings (from the NRTINGS website) in white balance and color space settings have to be adjusted if switching to BT1886?

Probably but you should run that question by RTINGS.

This post from Mr Fujisawa I've found to be a simple summary of what benefits of the 2 are.
"I use both, My bright preset is 2.2 and my dark preset is BT1886 (basically 2.4). That way I get to see more shadow detail when its bright in the room and when its nice and dark, I have much punchier shadow detail."

RTINGS used 2.2 with the reasoning that it was closest to their calibration target.

I am trying to adjust HDR settings on this model. I have enabled Input Signal Plus on the HDMI port. Adjusting while purported HDR content is playing from Amazon Prime app. Is there any way to tell when the display has switched to HDR mode?

First post for me. Thanks.

Hello all,

I bought a couple months ago a Samsung UN43RU7100FXZ in an offer that included a UHD Video Pack CY-SUC05SJ/XS. When tryed to watch the movies in there, the TV do not recognize them, showing like there were no movies in there.
I searched a bit and realized that the *.UM4 files were made for an older samsung TV models to be played, but not by the new ones. So, I complained to Samsung and the store of purchase, but either way I had no solution, they just tell me that I should formatt the HDD to use it like a storage device.

In searching for solutions, I found on AVSFORUM that some guys, in 2014, changed the type of file just by typing mp4 instead of um4. I tryed but it didn´t worked for me.

So now I am trying to find out if after these years a solution was found, or maybe I should just quit and formatt the HDD.


Any info you can share with me? advices?


Thanks...!!!

I have a 43" RU7100. Was wondering what is the default setting for the "fit to screen" picture setting? On or Off?
