    First prompt - this post not for everybody:)
    But If you are interested in what you have in reality in your box without any marketing - welcome

    All vendors doesn't like to talk about it. Marketing departments find new words for super-duper technology. What's behind this words?
    Try to research:)

    First of all - what's rated source for reliable information:
    - service training
    - service manual
    - service menu settings
    - mainboard photo
    - panel sticker(s)
    - TV sticker(s)
    - user manual
    - vendor's spec

    Most hard thing - many vendors remark main chips, use just own PN for replacement.

    As I am experienced in Samsung let's begin from this brand
    http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=601553
    In 2007 Samsung produced following platforms:
    Series Type Letters_in_FW CodeName Announce Date
    S8/R8 JA JSM Jasmine Spring 2007
    R8 BP BDP Bordeaux+ Spring 2007
    M/N8 TU TLP Tulip Spring 2007
    F8 PY PON Peony Summer 2007
    F9 RO ROS Rose Summer 2007
    In 2008 appears:
    A3 Jade Spring 2008
    A4 Coral Spring 2008
    A5 Pearl Spring 2008
    A6 Amber Spring 2008
    A7 Ruby Spring 2008

    In attached file you may find all known configuration for LCD TV (mainly Samsung for now:( )

    Block diagrams with some description of main components will follow...
    Hope to support with other brands :lease:

    First diagrams will be just announced A6 series from Samsung.
    A lot of rumors due to sales in US began 2-3 weeks before Europe.

    Some words about new naming convention for Samsung TV LE40A65*A for example
    - L - LCD
    - E - Europe model. May use A- Asia&Africa N - Korea, America
    - 40 - diagonal size
    - A6 - serie of TV
    - 5 - no ideas ???
    - * - digit from 1 to 9 for some minor modifications in appearance (from 1 to 4 - w/o DVB-T, 5-9 -with DVB-T)
    - A - First letter of platform (in this case Amber)

    Let's begin with US version

    The Block Processing Video Signal
    Component, PC and CVBS signal like AV are inputted to Scaler-IC (MT8226(IC5105)) directly.
    HDMI signal is inputted to switch-IC, TMDS351 to select just 1-HDMI input in 3-HDMI input.
    (But HDMI3 (Side) inputted to Scaler-IC directly), And then Selected HDMI signal is inputted to Scaler-IC.
    Scaler-IC converts video signal to 12bit of LVDS Signal, standard format to run a LCD panel.
    FBE3-IC receives this LVDS signals and processing it to enhamce picture quality.
    And then final 12bit of LVDS Signal is outputted.

    The Block Processing Sound Signal
    Sound signals of RF(SIF), HDMI, Component, DVI, PC and AV input are inputted to
    Sound-IC (MT8291 (IC2102)).
    DTV_AUDIO signal is also inputted for MP3 connected to wiselink.
    MT8291(IC2102) processes these signal and outputs 12C signal to digital AMP-IC (NTP3100 (IC2104)).
    And signals for headphone and Monitor-out are outputted.
    NTP-3100 IC outputs an analog sound signal to run Speakers.

    Why Samsung decide to make abs different model for diff markets?
    His BHP doesn't support DVB-T:(
    Due to this reason they used SoC from Mediatek for Europe.

    nice, i have an la46f81bx/rad, sq02, so no DVB-T
    Model la46f1bdx has a DVB-T, am i right in making the assumption that the f81bx model has the capability for a dvb-t daughter board???
    Would you happen to know a part nuber if so????

    cheers

    Interesting stuff. I'm suprised that samsung are using a 3rd party chip to power their european A6 series. Do you know if this is a common theme with Samsung TVs? Any idea if the MediaTek chip end up in other manufacturers TVs?

    Hi, I live in South East Asia and have a LA40A650A1R, this is the non-DVB-T tuner version for generic Asian market. It would be great to see the block diagram.

    Thanks!

    Found out from my service menu that my LA40A650A1R (Asia - non DVB-T) is also using the Mediatek MTK8226 processor, so I guess the different architecture for US (vs. Europe/Asia) is due to some other reasons.

    This information is quite useful as well as the platform.xls file including different chipsets, IC and features. Do you have any additional or updated information about 2008-2009 Samsung TV models? Do you have other spreadsheet such as platform.xls?
