RE: Samsung UE48H6400

Just to note re my earlier comment. My lip sync issue only occurred after my tv was replaced for the same model, to amend it I changed the timing on my humax box. Nothing changed on my amp

RE: Samsung UE48H6400

bigboss, there is a game mode option, but it says not available, when I attempt to activate it.

game mode is not necessarily available on all sources, it may be grayed out on the tuner.

RE: Samsung UE48H6400

What difference, if any, regards picture quality, would I see between the UE48h6400 and the 6700. I know the 400 is 400hz and the 700 is 600hz, but will there be a visable difference? I don't suppose they'd bother using different processors if the results were the same, but is it worth an extra hundred notes for an extra 200hz?

RE: Samsung UE48H6400

The general advice is to turn all artificial picture processing off in any case. So I don't think the extra 200Hz matters.

That may be sound advice for a Plasma, but not LCD based televisions.  I dont think any LCDs will resolve the full 1080 lines with motion options switched off.  In the case of the H6400,

RE: Samsung UE48H6400

Second UE48H6400 has lip sync issues, exactly like the first one. Oh well, I'm either very unlucky, or maybe I expected too much from a 700 quid 'bargain' tv. And it's just won another test in the latest edition of the mag. Do the WHF team actually watch off air content during their testing sessions? That question was for anyone other than any member of the WHF team, who seem to not want to make any comment or answer any of my questions on this subject. Hmm.

Yes we most certainly do: we test every TV with a mixture of off-air broadcasts from the built-in digital tuner, Sky TV and DVDs and Blu-rays. AFAIK we experienced no such lip-sync issues with our test model of this TV, and I've asked our Technical Editor to add his response.

RE: Samsung UE48H6400

Just wanted to confirm we do test TVs with broadcasts, both SD and HD. We didn't have issues with lip-synching with the Samsung.

RE: Samsung UE48H6400

Well, thanks for the responses Andy and Ketan. I must be an unlucky punter, that's all I can say. As mentioned before, I've had the Samsung sat side by side with a Sony KDL50W829. The Sony lip sync is perfect - indeed, with the Samsung volume turned down, the Sony sound is in perfect sync with the Samsung picture. Such a drag. Oh well, I can't see if it's third time lucky - I've got too long a journey to make each time to keep swapping tvs. Such a lovely picture as well...

RE: Samsung UE48H6400

I have just returned a UE46H6320 which to put it mildly was a big disappointment.We replaced a Panny 42" HD ready Plasma which was 5 years old.

Picture quality was very poor, Main source is a Humax PVR upscaled to 1080 P. Freeview  HD was reasonable, normal SD poor,  Now TV box 720P putting it bluntly terrible. I spent a long time with the settings and stiil could not get an acceptable picture.

Big thumbs up to Richer Sounds who after 8 weeks and an engineers report agreed to take the TV back.  

I have replaced it with the UE48H6400. What a differance.  We are totally blown away with the picture quality, Humax, Blu Ray, Now TV box all are supurb. Watched Wolverine this morning streamed at 720P and stunning picture quality, colours are so vibrant.

Standard picture settings tweaked and very, very happy.

Regarding lip synch no problems with the set i have, using the TV tuner, Humax, Now TV box, all are ok. 

Everything works, streaming music  from the laptop, optical out, Super/ Pro upsampling DAC to the M/F A1 FBP , very good.

RE: Samsung UE48H6400

I'm genuinely pleased for you, seasiders rock, I really am. And yes, the Samsung's picture is pretty amazing. But, for me, having to watch everything through an 'offboard' box is a compromise. I've got no problem with using Sky boxes, Humax boxes, hard drives etc. etc., but the tv has to work correctly to start with before adding other things into the mix.
