I have one and am really looking forward to it. The official release date is next Tuesday, the 27th. The demo looks spectacular but doesn't contain HDR settings, which will be adjustable in the full, retail copy for the One S.Anyone with a HU8550 try Forza yet? Curious to see how the HDR looks on our set.

I think most choose JS9000 or JS9500 as the firmware for these models is the same as for the SEK-3500. The firmware for the JS8500 is different than the firmware for the JS9000, JS9500 and the SEK-3500 (same version numbers but different names and file sizes).I have a UN55F9000 with the SEK-3500U and was thinking of trying the JS mod with the hope of being able to disable AMP when viewing 4k 60Hz content. I have read most of the posts on this thread since page 500 and was wondering what JS model number was preferred? 8500? The current firmware on my one connect is 1460 and I think I have the ability to view HDR content as I have downloaded samples and it seemed to work fine (backlight and contrast maxed, UHD color enabled). Thanks!
Thanks. I think I will start off with the 9000 and how that works for me.I think most choose JS9000 or JS9500 as the firmware for these models is the same as for the SEK-3500.

Yes but I am not sure on Dynamic meta-data . Could be many things as to why it looks better on my set though but it does. Perhaps dimming got better dunno but it looks better to me.That was player002's assessment. I haven't gotten the OTA update, but I showed my brother a clip from the Oblivion UHD (where Cruise enters that cave), and he was floored. I can only imagine how much better HDR may look in that scene after 1461 hits.
I have played Nba 2k17 hdr improvments are modest. They are not using the full WCG of HDR10 on this game for sure. Yes I can see it but graded poorly like some of the first HDR movies we got.. Now Forza looks incredible I saw it in HDR and wow beautiful.I have one and am really looking forward to it. The official release date is next Tuesday, the 27th. The demo looks spectacular but doesn't contain HDR settings, which will be adjustable in the full, retail copy for the One S.
NBA 2K17 also has HDR—the first console game ever to have the feature—but I can't find any professional reviews that mention it or its quality specifically. It supposedly received a day-one HDR update for both PS4 models. which confirms 4K isn't necessary for either console to run it.
This article from a key game director explains how it's being implemented on the regular and Pro versions. Interesting reading, even if you're not a gamer. http://venturebeat.com/2016/09/18/drilling-down-into-ps4-pros-4k-graphics-on-horizon-zero-dawn/
Well then I guess you must have missed this post from page 428 posted by moderator @markrubin stating the AVS policy and the fact that you run the risk of voiding your warranty and bricking your set...I have a UN55F9000 with the SEK-3500U and was thinking of trying the JS mod with the hope of being able to disable AMP when viewing 4k 60Hz content.

Proper AVS Moderator here:
AVS policy is we prefer you NOT post service menu access information: while you may think it is OK, we have a responsibility to not allow unauthorized access to a service menu that could brick your set
we setup some guidelines:
AVS prefers service menu access not be posted: it should be done by PM
if you are considering doing it remember:
-don't unless you are thoroughly familiar with the process
-this display keeps a record of service menu entries: it could void your warranty: and you could brick your set
-if you must do it: write down (or photograph) every screen/every setting
If members can use discretion, it would be best: and please let the Mods speak for themselves. Now please move on.
I did, yes. As I mentioned, I started at around 500 because I figured that enough time had passed that older information might no longer apply. Still, good information so thanks. I'll have to think if I want to take the chance or not.Well then I guess you must have missed this post from page 428 posted by moderator @markrubin stating the AVS policy and the fact that you run the risk of voiding your warranty and bricking your set...
Further to that there is no evidence that this hack will provide owners of the F9000 the abilty to access the greyed out Auto Motion Plus setting when viewing 4k 60Hz content.
I have heard of cases that even when members have taken every precaution they have screwed up their sets to the point that they were not able to get back into the Advanced Service Menu to reverse the changes. One of the rare times that guys on this thread had nothing to say about the JS Mod. No doubt, eh!
That's not 100% accurate. Yes, DV is just an algorithm but it does require certain SoC characteristics for it to run which Vizio worked with Dolby to ensure they met the requirements. Unlikely the hardware in the SEK meets those requirements.I think the Dynamic metadata maybe got pushed out.. HDR seems better apart from that can't tell any other changes.. Not sure about Dynamic Meta-data but HDR is looking better for me.
Dolby Vision HDR has been confirmed to be a algorithm in P series thread. This means that if Samsung wanted all they need to do is pay fees and can update DV HDR via online.
Considering the number of owners on this thread that have had issues with their SEK-3500U even when they have bought a brand new unit like this guy who posted his experiences a few days ago, personally I would rather spend a little more and purchase from a Samsung Authorized Reseller and receive a 1 year manufacturer's warranty.Did anyone here buy their SEK unit used? I'm tempted to buy one used on amazon from a place that has a money back guarantee.

Lol man.Someone has wondered if the last firmware update gave the SEK3500 dynamic HDR as he claims that he see a better HDR picture. I have not noticed an improved HDR picture with the last update

Lots of HDR are mastered in Dolby vision(fox movies) and converted to hdr10 . They could use the grading Dynamic meta-data of Dolby and apply it HDR10 when it allows dynamic metadata .They already have info for scene to scene all is needed is edid info to see what set is capable off and then adjust. Really not that hard to do as files already exsist for certain movies.. Some movies and shows have 2 version of hdr DV and HDR10 not gunna be hard once they get license to get the DV hdr info and apply it to HDR10.. Somebody correct me if wrong.Lol man.
Dynamic HDR10 must be graded scene to scene. Tools for this aren't even available yet to filmmakers to do such a thing. The hdr10 system requires an overhaul of its program.
Anything graded as static hdr10 is stuck as static hdr10 forever unless a new grade is released.
I saw this on the JS9500 forum:
UPDATE FROM SAMSUNG HQ ON NETFLIX APP HDR SUPPORT:
I received the following response to my request for an update:
"In order to play Netflix HDR content, it is required that the device is HDR capable and has the NRDP version 4.2. Since Our KS / KU devices shipped with NRDP 4.2, Netflix HDR is already available on those devices (since April when Netflix launched their HDR service).
For JS / JU models, they have been certified as NRDP 4.1 so we need to upgrade them to NRDP 4.2 and pass the Netflix certification. Dev team is working on this and OTN will be released by late November ~ early December."
You mean "...JS / JU models..."Well it says "JS / HU models" right in the response so i'm assuming so. I'm wondering if this will apply for the 2014 HU sets!
For as long as I have owned this set, I've always kept the brightness level at 45 for all content. For most content this has worked well.
From time to time, I noticed that some content looked too dark, almost like "black crush" but didn't start investigating until recently.
Turned out to be simple. Any YCbCr limited range signal fed to the TV looked fine and passed the blinking brightness test at 45 brightness.
However, any RGB limited range signal was too dark at 45 brightness and needed to be bumped up 47/48 to pass the brightness test. This higher brightness also applied to RGB 444 PC full rage mode.
So, for any devices I have that output RGB I now bump the brightness up to 47/48 and the picture detail now looks great. (Xbox One, PS4, Amazon Fire TV, PC, etc.)
I noticed the same thing with my nVidia Shield TV when the output is set to RGB Full.
