I recently purchased the Samsung 46" LED 8000 series and have been having trouble with television picture quality watching regular TV shows and HD content.
It is hard to describe the problem but in general I would describe the issue is that every show we watch on TV has a "reality tv" effect. For example, basic shows like The Office or Seinfeld come across as looking like a reality TV show. The general picture is perfectly clear and bright but comes across with a "washed out", almost amateur-like video production (though resolution is still very high).
I have played with almost every picture setting possible including contrast, brightness, sharpness, color but no matter what I do, I can't get away from the reality tv show effect.
When we view our own photos & samsung content (e.g. gallery photos) the picture looks brilliant, colorful and in a word perfect - at any setting. A completely different story for television shows.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Could there be something wrong with my HD cable converter - I am using a HD 8300 Explorer (Scientific America).
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
Hey all, I've been struggling with tweaking the picture settings on my family's Samsung un46b8000, and would like to know if anyone has done any extensive testing for picture settings on this TV?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
