I purchased a the 46" F8000 in december and have been challenged to get the TV to pass Dolby Digital 5.1 out the Optical output to my Sonos PlayBar.
I've read lots of posts in these forums and others that say that TVs just don't pass DD 5.1 out the optical connection when using an HDMI...
Following is my current setup and looking to upgrade my AV system.
TV : Samsung 46F8000
AV : Sony RV 888-D Hi-Fi system (7 years old and its 5.1)
Satellite Box : TataSky HD+
Blu-Ray Player : Pioneer BDP-450
Initial plan was to go for a full 5.1 upgrade, but after...
Can you please post your picture settings. I'm not a fan on the movie mode as it gives that cinematic coating, I have issue with it when watching sports. So far I like the looks of dynamic/Standard?
Would anyone have settings. I have the UN46F6800AF model!
This is my first post to AVS, which I have been an avid reader for many years.
I have decided to join this forum after owning a rather excellent Panasonic Viera 55VT30 plasma TV for almost 2 years and have been getting burn-in/stubborn IR caused by the subtitles (I have to...
I'm in the market for a 3D tv.I was looking at the 46 f8000 because it has the ability to update to 4k and many other capabilities.I keep my TV's for years so am willing to spend extra money if it makes sense and you get what you pay for.what is your opinion on this TV
I was looking at the Panasonic WT60 series (47" version) but surprised there is so little Panasonic activity here...am I missing some giant flaw in Panasonic LED sets (if so, please let me know!)
I'm a little concerned about only 3 HDMI inputs and the dual core processor vs quad core in...
I purchased an F8000 just under a month ago and have begun to notice some clouding in the upper left and right hand corners of the screen on full-black images. It is not apparent with moving images, however I find it quite noticeable with still black scenes. As I still have a few days left to...
Hows it going looking for a high end LED TV for gaming, was looking at the Samsung UNF8000 46 inch or the Sony W802A. I am looking for a TV that has low MS, will be using a PS4/X1 with the TV. Thank you.
Hey guys its time to update the display. We currently have a Samsung 52" A650 LCD and so far it has treated us very well. The image has never been calibrated by a professional only simple calibration disc adjustments and I think it looks quite good. There are some deficiencies however the...
I don't visit here much and am an infrequent poster, but I wanted to give you all my impressions of the 55" F8000 set I saw at the Value Electronics shootout; I attended and got to vote. I DO NOT WORK FOR OR SELL ANY OF THESE COMPANY'S PRODUCTS; this is just my opinion.
I just got his HDTV and I am loving it so far...excellent color, motion, black levels and solid resolution and uniformity.

We are going to move in a couple of months and are looking for a new television, minimally 55 inch and maximally ~2500$.
Because of the very bright living room, I do not think Plasma is an option, although the Panasonic VT60 does look great
My question would be which LCD...
After a depth review, I'm buying a Samsung 55" panel and I don't know if it's worth the 800€ extra which cost the F model. The only changes are one more HDMI, improvement from 800Hz to 1000Hz and a few changes in Sound, but I'm using an amplifier + 5.1 so they're not important for me...
(Sorry, I asked this in the main F8000 thread, but I think the question got lost amid all the technical discussion. I hope it's ok for me to ask it separately.)
Does anyone know whether I can safely wall mount the F8000 with one of the "old fashioned" wall mount units:
The limited photo...
My UN55F8000 was delivered yesterday, so it's time to have an owners thread.
