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".
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.
