UE40C7000 3D TV settings and wifi connection question

by s55ajr / August 12, 2010 11:50 PM PDT

I have just bought a UE40C7000 3D TV and BD-C6900 3D bluray player.
Could someone please let me know the optimum picture settings for this TV please?
Also I want to connect the whole system to my broadband wireless router. The bluray player has wifi built in and has connected fine. I particularly want to use the Samsung feature internet@tv which I can access on my tv using the bd player as source. Will this give me all of the features without the need to buy a wifi adapter dongle for the tv, which does not have built in wifi?
Many thanks.

s55ajr,

The picture settings do vary by such variables as color of the room, ambient light, and size of the room. So not one calibration will fit all needs. That said, many people do post their preferred or "ultimate" settings at the C|Net HDTV Picture Settings Forum.

That can be found here:

While the Blu-Ray player is wireless, and you noted correctly that the television is not, data is not transferred from one unit to the other. Both the Blu-Ray player and the TV would require their own separate connections. If you'd like to use the television's Internet@TV functionality, you'd need to either connect wired directly to the router, or purchase the Samsung WIS09ABGN LinkStick for the Wi-Fi connectivity.

I wonder if it is possible to switch on directly to one of the HDMI channels. I almost always view my television through the Sky HD box (UK) which is connected by HDMI cable but to access this I need to go through the source button on the remote and then scroll down to the HDMI. Any shortcut available, please?

s55ajr,

The tuner is an always on connection, and will revert to that, usually if no other input is available.

If you turn your TV off first, and then your SkyHD box, and then turn on the SkyHD box and the TV, does it still come up?

Outside of that, the "always on" status may use that as the default input.

Thanks for reply. My SkyHD box is always on when I switch on the TV b ut it always starts with TV (DTV Air. When I scroll down the source list to HDMI2 it changes to that channel automatically (without pressing the enter button on the remote). I can achieve starting with the Sky channel by disconnecting the antenna and leaving the Sky box as the only active connection but then if I do want to use the aeriel connection I have to go to the back of the set and re-connect it.

Hi,

Maybe it's a bit late for this question, but did you try to use the "power off/on" button on the remote to switch the TV on ?

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
