Hello,

 

Is there any diffrence or are they the same thing:

 

Firmware 1250.5 available to download from the Samsung site.

 

And firmware 1250 version that my TV already has running. Same stuff or they just don't show the 0.5 in the TV's menu description ? did any of you guys had 1250 before changing to latest or I'm already there and it's just a silly numbers thing.

 

Thank you in advance.


@John_John  It's been my experience that the Tv's Menu does not  include the decimal point.    Sure you have the latest firmware, it's showing 1250 on my Tv after I downloaded 1250.5 via Support site to USB.

TV doesn’t typically show the decimal. One thing I’ve noticed with this update (that supposedly adds HDR10+) is that when watching Amazon Prime, which (although there’s no badge indicator) streams HDR10+ content, “flickers” during darker scenes. I noticed this with “Patriot”. I wonder if it has something to do with either Amazon’s or Samsung’s implementation of HDR10+.

Thank you for the help.

 

One last thing is it possible to lose the menu option: "Transfer Channel List" with all this firmware updates ?

 

I don't have that option in my menu for a 50MU6102 with the 1250 lastest sofware.

 

Is it moved ? (but I looked all over for it) or they just removed it with the software update and I'm looking with no hope.

 

Just wanted to edit my channels after the intial first TV setup and I ussualy just use the export/import function with the USB stick for Samsung TVs.

 

This is the option I'm missing:

So this is my setup Samsung UN65MU8000 (2017 version) / Panasonic DP-UB820  / Samsung HW-M550 + SWA-8500S/ZA

 

The UB 820 will display what HDR metadata is being displayed on disc. Bad time at El Royale will be the first movie I will be able to test to see if my 820 is truly playing HDR 10+ content to my Mu8000

I have found the green flashing screen issue has returned in gaming mode when I am playing xbox one X

It has been confirmed by a few sites that Bad Times has HDR 10+ (bluray.com)we will have to wait for official details to confirm though. But I hope they are correct because I would like to know the true HDR capabilities of my 2017 MU8000

Hi. I wanted to update manually to latest firmware with USB method , but only now i see on my italian tv MU8000 that there isnt any update via USB available , only via OTA.

Why ?

Confirmation that Amazon Prime is indeed streaming HDR10+ content: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/465-high-dynamic-range-hdr-wide-color-gamut-wcg/2820017-hdr10-debuts-...

 

Feel free to test it out on your TV.
