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?

Maybe attenuating the backlight and/or white levels (brightness).

To meet HDR criteria, the manufacturer may have pre-set the backlight to an artificially high level.

What do you have the "sharpness" set at?

im using the Dynamic mode
sharpness is at 12 which is what tv automatically has it set to
ive dropped contrast down to 35 from 50 and color down to 23 from 30

I also went in the service menu and changed the following

pw max to 100
pwm in 2d to 100
pwm movie to 100
pwm mid 100
and pwm min to 0

this takes the auto dimming out, has helped a lot with the very over saturated colors and the auto dimming

"Dynamic" mode could be raising artificially the white and backlight levels, and attentuating the black levels (aka "picture" or "contrast") may exacerbate the effective "brightness". You may be better off reverting to "Standard" mode, and re-configuring from there.

And you should be able to disable the "auto dimming" feature with one (or more) of the "Eco Solution" settings.

I have a picture problem on my new RU7100 TV. I bought the TV about a week or so before Christmas at Best Buy when my 6 year old Sharp bit the dust. I did not buy an extended warranty.

Anyway, the TV screen sometimes gets "splotchey" (right word?) areas. These areas are in different locations, are different sizes, generally appear in darker scenes and areas. It doesn't appear in every show, so I am not sure if it is something wrong with the TV screen or something else. I watch only Direct TV programming. I do watch blue ray DVD's occasionally, but don't recall if it had these splotches/blotches or not. Someone suggested trying new cables (hdmi). I have not changed new cables, yet.

I took a couple of pictures to post on here, but have not been able to do so. If someone can tell me how, I will try it.

When I first got the TV, I did originally try a couple of different settings, but eventually went back to default with one or two minor changes. I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not. The picture mode I am using is "natural". I'm not sure if I am describing it (splotches or blotches) correctly (I've tried Google searches).

Any one have suggestions I could try before I call Samsung?
Thx.

Somehow I finally was able to attach a picture, but it is sideways. What I am trying to show is that dark splotch (pretty big splotch in the corner).

Looks good - except for the "motion lighting" feature. It is a form of auto dimming that attenuates the backlight during fast-moving scenes. It's also a feature that Samsung has used to meet (? cheat) energy-efficiency standards:

Hi all,

I have had my RU7100 for about a month now. However, while testing some game consoles hooked up to the unit, I started to notice some strange artifacts that appear similar to screen tearing, but somewhat different.

The specifics:

- The "tearing" is best described as a "region of lag" that is a few frames behind the rest of the image. The image within the region exhibits some discoloration.

- Unlike typical screen tearing, the artifact is not perfectly straight and rectangular across the whole display; it instead follows an irregular pattern that always appears in the same region at the top of the TV. I threw together an example, along with the artifact captured during gameplay, both attached below.

- The screen tearing only seems to affect component video sources, in this case, my original Xbox and my Wii. Both use their respective OEM component cables, securely fastened to the TV.

- The tearing only occurs when the consoles output 480p. Setting them to output interlaced 480i removes the tearing, though this is not ideal as input lag is introduced and image quality takes a hit.

- The effect is not always present. It typically appears for less than a second a few times per minute though it can occasionally last for much longer.

- Game Mode is set to ON on the TV.

I'm not sure if this is a usual flaw of modern televisions. I'm hoping to find out what causes this and if it can be easily fixed, so I thought I'd hop on the forums to hopefully get some input from experts on this TV.
