Samsung LED TV 8 Series - Display Problems Error

by u749694 / January 7, 2010 9:08 AM PST

I have purchased a top of the line Samsung LED TV Series 8 Model UA46B8000 in Dec 2009 in Aust and the TV, contrary to the manual and advertising, does not play mpegs, TS file formats correctly through USB.

There had been a discussion of this issue in the forum under thread "When is Samsung going to fix scaling issues in Media 2.0?" however the discussion seems to surround the issue that it does play the format although not in the correct aspect ration.

I put it that the TV is producing some sort of picture but it can not be said to be playing mpegs. "Some picture" is not sufficient to say the TV can play the file.

So too by displaying 1/3 or 1/10 of the intended picture could not be said to be playing the mpeg so too not playing the correct aspect ratio is not playing mpegs.

As such the TV is not doing those things that it is claimed to be able to do by Samsung. I am also very surprised that Samsung is not quickly correcting this or issuing a statement correcting their prior claims and ceasing misleading the public.

It is Jan 2010 and still no action has been taken by Samsung - extremely poor.
