Calibration report using these settings: (see below)

TV software/firmware version tested: v.1111

Below you'll find the settings I found best for viewing the Samsung UN55F6300 in a dim room via the HDMI input. Your settings may vary depending on source, room conditions, and personal preference. Check out the Picture settings and calibration FAQ for more information.

Calibration notes: Movie mode prior to calibration was superb, nearly perfect out of the box. The mode did come relatively bright, however, so I reduced the light output accordingly and engaged the LED Clear Motion control, which dims the image quite a bit (about 30 percent). That's not a big deal however, since there's plenty of power in the backlight to compensate.

The two-point grayscale ocntrols needed only very minor tweaks to bring as close as possible to perfect, and the same went for the Custom color control--as usual, Samsung's controls worked very well. In fact, it was so accurate that I saw no need to engage the 10-point grayscale control.

Should the 75 inch model be the same along the lines with the other models in the 6300 series?

HDMI Black Level
Sep 24, 2013 7:16AM PDT

I am using your calibration settings; however, my HDMI Black Level, is still selectable. In other words, its not grayed out. Are you calibrating using a Blu Ray as source? The TV turns this into Normal and greys it out when I watch a Blu Ray movie. However, when I use my cable box, the Low setting is selectable. Using the Low settings produces a considerable better picture when I watch content using my cable box.

Would the HDMI black level setting affect any of the numbers above?

How do you turn on Screen Fit. When watching football, I either have picture boexed short, fat players or have to use Zoom 1, and they're a bit stretched.

Screen fit is ALWAYS grayed out and I can NEVER un-gray it.

Thanks!

Any picture suggestions for watching sports? Seems like when basketball is on, the floor doesn't look smooth, looks choppy. Thanks
