1080p and Samsung Series 8 Plasma TV
#1
Hey guys,

I just bought a Samsung 850 ( pn58b850y1f ) and I cant seem to set XBMC to 1080p. I was hoping that I would be able to see the 24hz in action.

When I turn on my HTPC the TV sets the resolution to 1080 at 60hz but in the screen resolution settings the best I can achive is 1080 @ 50hz.

any suggestions ?


Thanks. . Smile

I added the line and I am now able to select the resolution. Smile
I have a problem with VDPAU. When I had [email protected] the player would play the media back with no problems (Smooth) but at [email protected] I get horrible performance (Jerky playback). When I use GLSL it plays back seems fine in most cases. How ever my CPU's go through the roof and I get audio sync issues on youtube content.

I am also noticing that when I play youtube streams or G4tv the FPS go low and the audio goes out of sync. Can this be from the upscaling? I wish I had more controll over video settings with certain play back types.

Any suggestions, or clarifacation?

It was more better if you purchaise an LED TV. The more you watch, the more you see the difference and if a normal everyday program/film shows a big difference, I can only begin to imagine how amazing an LED TV would be for gaming or action films. After I managed to blink, I had a walk around it and again was truly amazed. The size!! Although I know LED TVs are Ultra Thin, again, I don’t believe you can really appreciate how big a difference there is until you see one in real life. The LED TV I was looking at was a Samsung, UE40B6000/A, series 6, 40″ Box Set in Rose Black, and the good news is the price is started to come down.
To wrap up, believe the hype! LED TVs are the future!

It's only a bloody LED backlight. It's still an LCD! Some of the samsung ones just have the LED's on the perimeter (i.e. just like the old CFLs) so they're not even implementing it as a lower-resolution matrix at the back of the tv, which allows the backlight to be varied across the image.

Make sure you know what you're actually buying, rather than the silly hype words the manufacturer and sales people love to use.

to add to that statement. All LCD-tvs with LED backlight that are superthin has the leds around the monitor. if you want the local-dimming led's then it is thicker.

LED TV is a term used by Samsung to describe its line of LCD (liquid crystal display) TVsthat use LED backlighting.
LED-backlit LCD TVs do differ from conventional LCD TVs in some important areas:
1- They can produce a very bright image and deep blacks (doesn't work for Edge-LED
2- With Edge-LED lighting they can be extremely slim.
3- They can offer lower power consumption.
4- They can offer a wider colour gamut, especially when RGB-LED backlighting is used.

We can read that on the "helpful" site you linked. I don't see why you are shilling for these televisions with marketing terms that are misleading to the end user.

Do you have anything else to offer the community, other than spam?
