Hi, i have my Samsung LN46A650 conected via HDMI with the Panasonic Blu-ray Home theater system. I read the review for SAMSUNG LN52A650, there you have some Dark-room picture settings for the Samsung LN52A650. I tried to follow them but when i get to the picture option submenu it won't let me change it to:

DNIe: [grayed out]

HDMI black level: [grayed out]

Film mode: [grayed out]

They are just like not avaliable, skips from DIGITAL NR to BLUE ONLY MODE. I am trying to get the best from my tv so i will appreciate if you could help me with this, thanks.
The actual setting are like this:

DNIe: [OFF]

HDMI black level: [NORMAL]

Film mode: [OFF]

Dynamic Mode?

In reply to: SAMSUNG LN46A650, I CAN'T GET TO SOME SETTINGS

Change your default setting to Standard or Movie (But not Dynamic) and try to input those settings again.

Still waiting to see what would cause those issues to gray out.

Sorry about the delay, but I'm working to figure it out.

Entertainment Mode Toggle

In reply to: Haven't forgotten you...

There are two menu options. One is in picture, which we've already noted can't be on dynamic. The other is a setting in the Tools Menu, and I'm going to walk you through that here. After you're done toggling away from "Entertainment" Mode, you should be able to toggle the variables you listed prior.

On the remote, on the upper left hand side of the wheel, there should be a button that says "Tools". Press that, and a menu button should appear. From there, press the down arrow key to Picture Mode, and from what I'm guessing, you have "Entertainment" mode selected. Select Standard or Movie mode instead. One of those two options should make those grayed out defaults appear once you've set the Picture Mode and exit out of Tools.

Entertainment mode is a good picture, but it does over-ride some of the other functionality by design. So we're undoing Entertainment Mode's settings so that you can go in set your own preferred settings.

Let me know how that works.

Also, analog settings

In reply to: Entertainment Mode Toggle

I almost forgot. Some options are grayed out, depending on the input. Naturally, Component won't have the HDMI-black-level option available, and there are some features that are input dependent.

HDMI/DVI

Is it possible that these options are limited when connected to the HDMI/DVI input on the TV.

I ask because I have this same issue and I just assumed it had to do with the fact that I'm connected via my PC using that input to access Vista Media Center.

Not Limited...

In reply to: HDMI/DVI

Some of those options would be limited with component inputs, or S-Video, etc because the technology that is meant to improve certain signals only applies to certain physical inputs.

when you say "Some are limited" can you give us a definate. when using the HDMI/DVI, which options are unavailable?

A list?

In reply to: HDMI/DVI

I don't have a printed list of feature sets for each input.

Maybe I can dig something up that lists that out.

Film Mode setting

In reply to: HDMI/DVI

When trying to implement the CNET settings for the LN52A650, the "Film Mode" is grayed out (as it should be), but the problem is that it is set to "Auto" rather than "Off" as the settings suggest it should be. I do not have Entertainment mode on, and the picture is in Movie mode. In fact, I am able to adjust all the CNET-suggested settings except I don't know how to turn the film mode off. I am working with a Blu-ray 1080p HDMI input. Same results even with my cable DVR, which is a 1080i HDMI input.
I would think there is another "mode" it needs to be in temporarily in order to control the Film Mode, but I don't know what that is.

DNIe

To ungrey the FILM MODE..

In reply to: SAMSUNG LN46A650, I CAN'T GET TO SOME SETTINGS

My FILM MODE was grayed out, so what i had to do was, connect my cable box directly to my TV, then open up the VIDEO section and change the settings to 480i and bingo the FILM MODE appeared ..
