My DVD player is hooked up via the component video terminals, and a rep at Samsung told me that it is normal not to have an option to adjust the Tint setting since "the colors are already being separated".



Huh? :confused:

The wideband inputs (DVI, VGA & Component) allegedly don't have TINT, whereas the S-Video and Video inputs do. That's certainly true on my HLN617.

The older firmware revisions have tint on all inputs.

I wonder how far that goes back. My original 4365 had v.211 firmware and it was the same way as my HLN617 which has v.302 firmware.

I believe tint was available on all sets up until ver. 2xx and upwards.

There is no Tint control in the component signal. Many do offer it as a feature, however, I am not sure how they are implementing it. Technically, it should not be there, and if it is there, that would mean they are applying additional conversion to the video path. I think that the new changes is a reflection of their consulting with Joe Kane. They have taken his class on the component signal path, and are attempting to do things the right way, and I think this is a direct result.

Be happy, it's like going from Pro-Logic to Dolby Digital.

I think it's possible that 480i into Component 1 activates the Tint feature, but 480p won't. I haven't tested this of course, but will get around to it eventually.
