    I've got a samsung pn51d8000 and calibrated using movie mode settings from this site. I'm watch football right now and notice during fast motions it gets fuzzy as if the pixels are trying to adjust or something. I've had this tv for a while but only just noticed this. Is there a sports mode or...

    I thought I'd come to these forums finding a detailed comparison (or maybe reviews) between top of the line sets and Vizio's new M-series "Razor LED" sets, but I couldn't seem to find anything in the official thread. So here's my question - how do these sets (specifically the M551D-A2R or...

    Noticed last night while watching a Netflix movie which was supposed to be HD but actually displaying in SD mode thru my Smart Hub so I then watch my movie thru my Sony BlueRay player and this time it was actually in HD mode and my download speed from Netflix was an average 5 mbps so it's not...

    I bought this TV in January of 2012 and I got the 3 yr extended warranty. My nephew was playing Wii and flung the controller to the TV. -_- The TV started to show me a crazy trippy visual show before it went all black and started to make a loud hum. The red led light just flashed red when on...

    Hi- Very newbie here, so I hope I'm posting in the right area. I have a Denon 3312 with three zones. In audio modes I can play music in all zones. In video modes (blu ray or cable) I can only get audio out of the main zone. If I select the same source that is playing in the main, I get...

    I mainly use the PS3 for watching DVDs and Blu-Rays. I've read many of the threads about IR and how to protect against it while watching BDs with the letterbox on top and bottom in black. Does anyone know how to make those black bars grey on a PN**D8000? Is it something I can do on my PS3? If...

    Subject line says it all. We got our PN51D8000 three months ago as an upgrade from a 10 yr old RPHDTV and it feel prey to a rogue Wiimote. It did everything we needed it do including streaming avi files from our LAN. Any suggestions on a 50-55" replacement in the $1500 range? Open to either...

    Finally decided to get this set, now just looking for a decent price because I'm gonna need to buy a stand, ps3, and other accesories along with it. I was reading an amazon review from about a month or two ago from a guy that said he got his set on amazon for $1200. Its at or around $1500 at...

    I have been using the Spears and Munsil disc for calibrations and for some reason my whites were always clipped. I couldn't adjust my white color at all. It would always be too white. After trying different things for DAYS I have finally figured out what it is... My Denon AVR 1912 Receiver...

    Hello! I have a new PN51D8000 from Samsung and I'd like to connect it to my PC. As I understand there are different VGA cables (VGA, SVGA et.c) and they all represent different resolutions. Which cable type would allow me to use the maximum resolution that my TV allows? Wouldn't it be HDMI...

    I have a pn51d8000 with antenna input (with antenna set to Air). On a channel with 480i 4:3 signal, I've set the aspect ratio to Zoom1 and adjusted the position to hide the static logo. However, when I change the channel and go back or turn off the tv, the picture position gets reset. I know...

     Following in the footsteps of the LG tweak thread (thanks guys!), I have made similar modifications to my Samsung 51" D8000 with excellent results.  It would be a good idea to read through that thread before starting, take notes and photographs of all original settings and most...

    I have been on the lookout for a new tv and I think this is what I have narrowed it down to. The differences that I have read is the 8000 has a browser and a qwerty keyboard. I am not sure if that justifies the $300 difference in price. I would love your guys input if you have had some hands on...

    When I play DVDs within Windows Media Center, I sometimes get a single pixel white line on the left side of the screen when running in screen fit mode. I can adjust the screen to slide one pixel left and it's gone but it comes back when I restart WMC. Doesn't seem like this should be occurring...

    Hi there, I just ordered a Samsung PN51D8000 to replace my UN46C7000 which I'd had mounted using Samsung's WMN100B slim wall mount. Before I go out and buy a new mount/drill more holes, I was wondering - does anyone knows whether or not the PN51D8000 will also fit the WMN1000B?

    Hi guys, long time lurker, first time poster. I've recently been researching a lot about Plasmas and am looking to buy a PN51D8000 for my room, but i've heard many reports about worse black levels than on the bigger models. Has anyone seen the 51 inch and a 59 or 64 inch side by side? and if...
