Exclamation Samsung Led 8000 Series Picture Settings Need Help

I am now using Movie Mode instead of Dynamic Mode (Torch Mode) as recommended below.

Samsung Led 8000 Series

The Settings I am using are here http://www.tweaktv.com/tweak-my-tv/c...un55b8000.html

My model number is Samsung Led UNB55B8000XFXZA there is a page for my exact model but there are no settings for it but isn’t the Samsung UN55B8000 the same TV?

I have a couple of questions below and the user SellmeyourDVD was right what a difference from Dynamic Mode I am now using the correct mode Movie Mode what a difference did I shorten the life span of my TV by using dynamic the longest I have used it was to watch the Super Bowl.

Question 2: The only setting that’s not selectable now is Film Mode the settings above recommend to set Film Mode to Auto 1 but it’s Off and not selectable how do I change this setting?

Thanks In Advance For Your Help And Replys

Your tv will look horrendous in dynamic mode. Every person here will tell you not to do that.

Plus, you are putting a TON of wear and tear on your tv by doing that, but to each his own.

Nice TV! Looks like you discovered what I was about to recommend. Dynamic / Vivid setting is something you'll want to stay away from for the reasons that SellMeYourDVD listed. Plus the picture itself won't be as impressive as it can be, because those settings tend to crush blacks and over enhance the image. It's one thing to have the image "pop", but you'll find a natural image to be much more pleasing. You can always increase the backlight setting if you want to give it a bit more "pop" without destroying the image.

Exclamation I just connected the tv Via Ethernet and updated to the latest firmware

I just connected the tv Via Ethernet and updated to the latest firmware does that affect picture quality?

I have a new question though I notice when watching TV the screen image has pixles on some channels is this normal or is the TV Bad? I have basic cable not DirecTV Yet FYI

Thanks In Advance For Your Replys

You need to be a little more specific.... because your TV has pixels, that is how it displays the image....

When there is fast motion, does the image have a tough time keeping up with what's is going on?

Are you watching standard definition or high definition content? You said you're watching basic cable, which denotes SD to me (not sure if this is what you intended). Are your cable box and TV connected via HDMI?

Keep in mind, the TV itself will not upscale 480i/p content to 1080i/p, so if you are watching a standard definition channel it will look the way you described.

Exclamation

@ progers13: I do not have a cable box it's just the cable comming from the wall connected straight to the TV,I know I am getting SD Channels,but the TV also has an integrated OTA Tuner those channels are called DTV Cable channels and it happens with those channels as well I thought those channels were broadcasted at least some of them in 1080i or am i mistaken?

@ SellmeyourDVD: I don't think it has a tought when there is fast motion scenes I was watching Transformers on bluray and did not notice anything it only gets blochy when watching TV.

Sounds like this is your problem. You are watching standard definition content. In order to get HD over the air, I think you need to get an HD tuner capable of receiving it. As for the cable, straight from the wall is going to be the basic cable, like I originally thought. This is SD content and is the culprit behind your "blotchy" complaint. A lot of channels broadcast in 720p or 1080i, you're right. But the thing to note here is that these channels are simulcast - meaning, they are broadcast both in HD and in SD because not everyone in this country is HD-ready. In order to receiver HD content from your cable provider, you need to call them and make arrangements to get an HD cable box.

Post let me see if I understand correctly then

let me see if I understand correctly then so you are saying that even though a local channel is broadcast in 1080i I would still see it blochy because I don't have an HD OTA Tuner Connected via HDMI

If you are watching TV from a cable through the wall, yes it will be blotchy. You only have a coax cable hooked up into the tv right now, and that is why you only get SD channels.

Just like what progers said, you need a HD cable box OR an OTA antennae, which would be connected via a co ax cable to the OTA tuner on your tv.

I didn't know what you meant by "blotchy" because I haven't had cable TV for almost two years , and even when I had it, the only programming I ever watched was in HD.

If you want an OTA antennae, I'd suggest this

http://www.amazon.com/Terk-Amplified...7821031&sr=8-1

I use it when I do watch TV (football... and that's it). It picks up all my local stations plus a few others that are in HD.

Why does everyone say to turn the black contrast to off dont you want your blacks looking good and the same for auto motion being turned off why?
