Can any one tell me if the f7000 can passthough DTS/Dolby i can get it to pass dolby but not DTS from my pc but i cant get it to pass the Dolby from my virgin media Tivo box the tv the tv's connected to my receiver by ARC HDMI.
I Just came from an LG TV That could pass DTS/Dolby and I'm a bit bummed out that this looks like this cant and if thats true I'll have to put my PC and Tivo box into the receiver but then i wont be able to control the tivo box with the TV remote or smart menu and i have to cycle through inputs with the receiver remote.
I have the 55" and have tuned both freeview and freesat, however i only seem to be able to bring up either the freesat or the freeview menu when i hit the source as TV.
If i go into smarthub i cam switch from one to the other but i cant find a direct/shorter route, anyone able to tell me what i have missed?
thanks for any help.
Has anyone been able to resolve this issue??
If this does not work, I will just use the Sky Remote (which seems a shame).
The really sad thing here is the following:
If you press:
1) Menu-->Broadcast-->Guide: it goes right to the Sky EPG.
2) More->then go to the 3rd screen-->Guide: it goes right to the SKY EPG
3) But using the Guide Button does nothing at all.
Really bad design to call something "Guide" in three places and have it go different places?
The weird thing is nothing at all happens when pressing the Guide. You would think something would happen? Hopefullt Samsung knows about this and is trying to fix this?
I think its either or - not both Out of interest, why do you want both? I thought one was just a subset of the other anyway?
Does anybody know if the Samsung logo thingy protruding at the bottom is detachable? I'm debating whether to get this one or the f8000. So far the 7000 is what i like the best, design wise... but that little knob is really messing with my zen
What about black electrical tape? Is it an infrared port of has some other important use?
I stick black tape over bright LEDs on devices in the bedroom if their too bright...
When turning the tv on, will it go straight to the last hdmi input last used ? All the smart features are fairly redundant for me as I have all of these with youview / ps3 etc... So can you set it so this hub thing is bypassed? I just want a tv with a great image, not the Internet stuff
At the moment it takes 6-7 key presses to change image from cinema - standard etc... How many for the f7000?
Well you cant turn of the glaring red standby light. I put the 3D glasses box in front of it at night ... remove it when I watch cause of IR port and looks.
Bummer - I may cut a tiny bit of tape to stick over it - hate standby lights on in the bedroom that are too bright
Re PS3 - when you select input - choose game mode - will this still give optimum bluray / video playback inside the ps3 or do you have to switch between game / movie picture modes within ps3?
When going from ps3 (input1) to youview (input2) and the. Back ageing to input1 (ps3), do you have to deselect game mode or does each input remember the last picture setting?
Re USB Recording - in the PDF manual, it states the HDD needs to be for,attend for PVR recordng - and that its encrypted etc... - when connecting this HDD with mts (sd) files, is it possible to drag drop these on to your computer? I understand hd streams are encrypted but think sd are drm free - my ps3 used to record via play tv and you could export to your USB drive.
So I've been reviewing this thread as I'm getting a 55 F7k from JL on Wednesday to replace my ES8000.Sorry to bump my own post but has anyone else experienced the same behaviour as I describe above with their Sky boxes? I want to make aure I am not alone before I call Samsung again
I have not long bought the UE40F7000 at a discounted price, and i am very impressed i watched my first 3D film the other day "Despicable Me" and was blown away, i have freesat rigged up, my HTPC running XBMC is hooked up via an Onkyo TX-NR609.
So very pleased with the setup.
I noticed Whathifi have recently reviewed this set and given it 5 Stars.
Just shopping for a 3D standalone bluray player as i'm using my PC and it's a pig to setup.
Just thought id share my views on this awesome set, considering my last tv was a Samsung LE40M87 which has never let me down but the picture wasn't the best.
