I've had this TV for about a 1 and half years now and its been great (other than the sparkle problem-Fixed).

I recently picked up a Mac Mini and decided to use it on my TV for a media center. I have it hooked up through HDMI and it works, but my only problem is that it doesn't get full screen. I tried changing the settings on the Mini and the TV, but nothing was better than keeping the Mini at 1280x720 and the TV at 16:9.

I did some reading and I found after a firmware update, it gives the TV the capability to do 1:1 pixel mapping. It's called 'Just Scan'. I believe that would fix the issue, but I can't find the firmware update anywhere :/. I've checked Samsung's website and browsed all around the forums and I came up with nothing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Ben

I found firmware for models that have the same UI...

Could I use that?

I have this same issue and I'm hoping a firmware upgrade will help. Were you able to resolve this? Where did you download the file?

Thanks!

I can't help you with the firmware, sorry. But I also have this set and suffer from the sparkle issue. How did you fix?
