    Look at the Nationwide logo on the NBC ticker - it's flawless. We'll see how the faces look when they introduce themselves and tell us where they went to college.

    Do you guys have any idea what happened? On my TV, it used to have the Directv icon and I could do some basic functions right from there. I don't recall setting anything up, it just did it. Now it just says cable box and the options to control the Directv receiver are gone. HDMI control is on all devices.

    Go over to Connections on the left and select it or just see if DirecTV is in that row of connections. If it is, use the up arrow to go up and then right arrow to move to it and select it.
    Don't know what your remote looks like. For mine what I am calling arrows is a round wheel.

    If your color is as intense as the picture you took, that could be affecting your graphics. The strong colors could be bleeding over onto the ones that are not as strong in the graphic.
    Try turning it down 3 to 6 numbers and see what it does / looks like.
    My color is set to 38, backlight is 15, brightness 44, contrast 95 on the Standard Picture Mode.
    Always remember that you can scroll to the bottom of the adjustments available and there is a Reset that will put it back to Factory so you can start over if you make a mess of it. I have done that myself.

    The color in the picture is terrible. The picture in real life looks different. Even the hulu green is off in the pic. I don't understand that, I have never had that issue with taking a pic from TV. It could have been because I was sitting on the couch and zoomed in on my phone.

    My settings aren't too different from yours...
    Standard Pic Mode
    No special viewing mode (although I tried them all to see how they ruined the pic in their own unique way)
    Backlight 15
    Brightness 45
    Contrast 90
    Sharpness 50
    Color 50
    Tint 50-50
    Film Mode: Auto 2 (Factory default)
    UHD Color: on
    Digital Clean View Auto
    Auto Motion Plus Custom, Judder 2
    Dynamic Contrast: Low
    Color Tone: Cool (that's how it was and some things look "off" when on standard, in my opinion)

    I tried the Standard Mode for a few days, but didn't like it.

    As for the inputs, today I have discovered that I can put whatever name on the input I want and so I changed it to Denon AVR, so now everything is labeled correctly.

    Try this one: It takes those blinding white backgrounds, etc. and makes it look more real .

    Natural Pic Mode
    No special viewing mode (although I tried them all to see how they ruined the pic in their own unique way)
    Backlight 20
    Brightness 45
    Contrast 100m Edit : 96
    Sharpness 60
    Color 42
    Tint 50-50
    Film Mode: Auto 2 (Factory default)
    UHD Color: on
    Digital Clean View Auto
    Auto Motion Plus Custom, Judder 2
    Dynamic Contrast: High
    Color Tone: Standard

    I will say as for graphics and picture quality in general are fantastic on the Dan Patrick Show that I recorded on Audience earlier. Everything seems better than anything I've seen, on par with movies on HBO. The headshots for graphics are flawless and the detail and color is great.

    As for dynamic contrast, high is painful on the eyes. I will compromise with 17 for the backlight for now. As for whites, I have noticed that the whites are not blinding, there is actually variance in the color of them that I am not used to. It seems like turning all those things to high would make the whites more blinding.

    Backlight of 4? How can you see anything?! The gaming mode it speaks of degrades the PQ of graphics - it says that right on the screen when you select, so steer clear of that. I don't know if I buy that sharpness thing either. I usually stop reading calibration posts/articles/etc that start with "movie mode" - that looks like a bad old-time-simulated Instagram filter.

    Despite the adjustments, the graphics for ESPN basketball that are on now are still bad, but I do think they've improved with the tweaks I've made. At least I find it less distracting.

    4 with my lights on. I adjust it if I'm in the dark. But not much. It's bright as hell

    I actually turned the ECO back on a few weeks ago, and set the minimum backlight to 14. This room is very bright during the day (it's on 20 now) but it night it goes back to 14-15. I like not having to watch dark TV during the day and bright TV at night.

    The main reason I am posting is this: I got a software update yesterday. Since then, there is a minor problem with the TV. Whenever it is powered on, the first line of the keyboard (Where it tells you how to use the pop-up keyboard) will come up. The only way to get it to go away is to change the input and change it back. Pressing the exit button on TV mode on the Directv remote does not make it go away like it does with any other TV function. Pressing anything on the TV's remote doesn't make it go away. It's kind of annoying!

    What is the best way to talk to Samsung and inform them of this?

    I just read this whole thread. About contacting Samsung support: Do let us know how you make out with that. I've had no luck with calling them. About your problems: I have no idea why all that is happening, but I'd follow Jimmie's advice if I had similar problems. He's helped me many times. I do have a Sammy 4K set but have no picture problems with it.
