I just received my PN50B450 on November 14, 2009 and it does have red accents. For the most part it looks black, but when in the right light you can see the reds.

Yes, this television does support 24p, I own this television and use a bluray player which supports 24p with this television, and the television picks up the 24p signal instantly. Just make sure that your bluray player is set to 1080p 24p and use an hdmi cable. The television will scale the 1080p 24p signal to 720p 24p. There will be no perceivable loss of detail and motion will be film-like.

Question

Why a different screen resolution from the A450?

I noticed that the PN50A450 has a screen resolution of 1365x768 and the PN50B450 has a resolution of 1024x768. Why does the newer model have a lower resolution and is there a discernable difference in the picture quality? I'm a loyal customer who owns one Samsung HDTV and am trying to decide on which model to purchase. Additionally, can you forward me the actual contrast ratio #'s?

Thanks for making such a tremendous line of HDTV's! I tell everyone about your fantastic home theaters.

Your contrast should be at whatever setting you feel makes the picture look best to you. There is no real "official" setting for any of the adjustable setting in the units menu.

On the PN50B450, there really is only one way to connect headphones. In order to do so, you would need to connect the headphones via an RCA to 3.5mm female connector to the red/white audio outputs on the TV. Even then, since the RCA audio outputs on this unit is a fixed pass through type of connection, you would need some sort of intermediary device to control the volume, since the TV doe not have control of the volume coming out of the analogue and digital audio outputs.

Great question! There are three ways to connect your PC to your PN50B450: monitor cable, HDMI to HDMI or HDMI to DVI.

Although all of these connections are easy to hook up, the PC monitor cable is the most common. To connect it this way, just use a standard PC monitor cable to connect from the monitor out of your PC to the PC input on the TV. Some adjustments to the PC's resolution is required.

If your PC offer HDMI out, I would highly suggest using this connection, since it is a basic plug-n-play connection (meaning almost no adjustment is needed on the TV or PC)

HDMI to DVI is almost the same as straight HDMI, but in this case, you will want to connect the DVI end of the cable to the PC (if available) and the HDMI into the TV. This is also considered a plug-n-play connection.

Question

Reply To Computer Conections

I bought this tv and liked the fact it had the PC connection. I went and bought high qualitly (not HD) but a good expensive PC monitor cable. And I was very disapointed with the quality through the PC connection. Im hooking it up to a HP laptop which has S-video, USB and the PC monitor outputs. Is there any way I can go from USB to HDMI or from S-video to HDMI? And if I could, would I get sound along with my video? If I cant get a good connection here I will probably have to bring this TV back.... and other than that I am ultimatly happy with the TV.

I'm sorry you are having an issue with your device. If there is a s-video to HDMI cable, then you are more then welcome to use that. Actually, you are more then welcome to use any connection on the market to connect your laptop to your TV. However, due to hardware limitations on modern day PCs, the audio will have to be sent via a different connector onto the TV (page 15 of the user's manual). The reason you are probably having a hard time adjusting the picture to look good is b/c your laptop's resolution is not compatible with the TV. Please try adjusting the resolution on the laptop to match that of the TV (1024 x 768@60Hz)

At certain times, it is normal for a TV to make a clicking sound, such as when you turn it on after a long period of inactivity or sometimes when you turn it off or even change channels. If you hear a clicking sound and your TV is operating normally, there is nothing to be concerned about. However, if your TV clicks one or more times and operates abnormally, your TV may require service. In that case, please make a service request at http://www.samsung.com/us/support/o...

Although I may not have the wattage numbers readily available to me (since daily usage varies from owner to owner depending on settings and content), I can say that most all current generation Samsung TVs are EnergyStar4.0 compliant. This ensures the best possible performance with minimal power usage. That said, the B450, along with all other Samsung TVs, actually enters a standby state when the power button is pressed to turn the unit off.

I would be happy to help you out with this. In order to change the aspect ratio (screen size), you will want to head into the TV's menu, then to the picture sub-menu. Once there, head into the "Picture Options" option. Within that option, you will see the "Size" adjustment. Clicking into that will allow you to change the picture size of the screen.
