This TV is a fully capable 120Hz set and offers the Auto Motion Plus feature that enhances said 120Hz image. This set will always upscale your 60Hz signal to 120Hz, regardless of any settings you may have active. However, in order to receive the full 120Hz benefit (judder and blur reduction, and frame interpolation), you will need to have Auto Motion Plus active. The reason you are seeing the 60Hz in the info box is because the info box only displays the signal’s actual Hz and screen resolution and not the info of the picture on the screen after the TV processes it. Meaning that the 60Hz you are seeing is the signals actual Hz and not the screen’s Hz. Currently there is no way to display the screen’s Hz in the info box. Coincidentally, the Samsung TVs can only accept a 60Hz signal and there are currently no consumer devices on the market that will transmit at over 60Hz (excluding some PCs).

Question

I have "jerky/juddering" motion in the TV image.

This occurs with satellite source (Dish Network) and with my new Samsung Blue Ray player (BD-D6500). It occurs regardless of the type of motion on the screen (fast or slow). How can this be corrected? Both sources are connected with premium HDMI cables (different brands and purchased at different times).
A second question; three days ago the sound level on the TV dropped dramatically. Normal listening level was in the 17-21 range, now it is around 50+! What happened and how can it be corrected?

Thanks

First off have you tried adjusting the auto motion feature under picture options? The jerky motion is due the "judder". You should try one of the preset settings like "clear", "smooth", or "standard". Of these I believe the clear setting is optimum. If you want to customize your auto motion setting try with your blur reduction on setting 9, and your judder reduction on 3 or 4. This may help with blu ray and/or high def.
As for your sound it appears to me you have turned your sound mode to the "night" setting which will cut the volume level about in half. To change this, press the menu button, go down to the picture of the speaker "sound" and then select auto volume. Here you will have 3 options, off, normal, and night.
Hope this helps. Nate

Question

Compatibility with Mac - Remote Issues

I'm going to buy a larger TV and currently own a Samsung that's about 4 years old. I want to be sure that I won't have certain issues that my old one has. It works fairly well, but there is a noticeable hum once it's on. This was apparently a not uncommon issue with this model based on other comments. I use DirectTV service and with its remote, the volume control is painfully slow to use. The technician said this was a problem with Samsung TV's only. So, I would like to know if I purchase a C6500 or other UN series, is this likely to be a problem or have these issues been resolved?

Also is the internet@TV service compatible with a Mac. If not, what models do work with Macs or are there plans to do a firmware upgrade to accommodate Macs if they don't currently work?

Thanks for your help!

For the first part of your question, I personally use a universal remote to control the TV's functions, and I can say that the volume control speed on my unit is the same with both the universal and Samsung remote controls.

Internet@TV does not access the internet through your computer; rather, it connects via a wireless (with a separate Linkstick WiFi dongle) or wired home router that is connected to the internet. Unfortunately, the DLNA system you may be thinking of that allows your TV to access media from your computer may not be compatible with a Mac. This goes for all of the AllShare (DLNA) Samsung TVs. If you Mac supports the DLNA standard (most Windows based PCs natively support DLNA), the TV should be able to access your saved files. Please contact your computer's manufacturer for more details on DLNA and compatibility.

Actually, the time is not updated from the internet, but rather from your digital coax cable connection. "Auto" allows you to set the current time automatically using the time from a digital channel. The antenna/coax must be connected in order to set the time automatically.

According to Verizon Tech Support, this periodic blackout has been a problem for the last 2 years by Samsung TVs. My quess is that the Samsung receiver is real sensitive and any momentary signal loss will make the screen go black. Verizon's answer is try another HDMI cable and if you still have trouble switch your connections to Componet cables. CNET says you will not notice any lost of quality in the picture using Componet cables. A friend of mind had this problem and when he changed to Componet cables the problem cleared up.

The heating element may have cooled off (if its near a vent or window perhaps). That's assuming you have an LCD/LED. LCDs uses a heat source to gradually light up the display - if it goes cold or just goes out, the picture is lost.

What are the frames per second for UN55C6500?

Having a issue with the picture "stuttering" during certain HD shows, but not all. Have tried adjusting many items on the picture menu but none of them eliminate the issue. Had the cable company out and got a new box but that hasn't helped either. On the new cable box, it asks what formats the TV supports and two have FPS (24 and 30) for 1080p. Could this be the issue? The picture is almost like it has to catch up all the time, very annoying.

Question

White "blotches" on the sides of the screen during dark scenes

I've had the UNC6500 for about a week. I'm noticing white blotches on the sides of the screen that are particularly distracting during dark scenes. There are three distinct lighter areas on both sides of the screen that seem to bloom out from the edges of the set. I've also noticed a light blotch in the center of the set during some dark scenes.

This is the first time I've had much experience with an edge-lit LED TV, so I don't know if this is normal or if there is a problem with my set. I've tried turning the backlight way down, which helped a bit, but even that has not corrected the issue.

Is there anything I can do to correct or lessen this issue?

Does "Media Play" attempt to play video files of resolution that is not 1920 X 1080?

I see that the Media Play feature of the UN55C6500 has the ability to play or stream mkv and avi (and others) file types from a USB device or computer on a home network. I see that video is only supported in a 1920 X 1080 resolution. Will the TV attempt to play files that are not this exact resolution? Will the TV try to play the file and attempt to stretch it to fill the screen even though it is not "supported"?

Yes, all of the ConnectShare units should still read and display your content even if it is not the exact resolution as the TV. The content will either be displayed in its original resolution or it will be stretched to fit the screen (by pressing the "Tools" button on the remote while in movie play mode, you will be given the option to change the image size).

Since the TV does not directly connect to the PC, drivers are unnecessary. Your PC has to have File Sharing turned on, and the folders you want to share should have file sharing activated. If you are running windows XP, you may need to download the PC Share Manager in order to properly share the files (Windows Vista/7 does not require PC Share Manager, but requires you to create a media server).

As stated in the manual, you will want to have at least a 4 inch clearance all around the TV to allow for proper ventilation. For the clearance from the TV to the wall when mounting, the amount of space between the wall and the TV once it is secured on the mount should be enough for ventilation.
