Re: default volume at startup

Great news! Thanks! Not at all too late. Also someone else might be looking for this in the future.

I think the hotel mode can be enabled also from service menu. How about disabling the hotel mode, the same key sequence?

Re: HDMI EDID hack to allow 5.1 passthrough

As I suspected, no DTS coming through. I see my TV has Dolby Digital Plus logo printed on the chassis, maybe it's just Samsung went cheap and didn't want to pay for DTS licence.

Re: HDMI EDID hack to allow 5.1 passthrough

I have now a Gefen HDMI Detective Plus, which is able to 'fake' the EDID. I recorded the EDID from my amplifier and now I get Dolby Digital (AC3) pass through from another source (IPTV box), which was not able to do that before. I think the real EDID info is in the SIL chip, since even when TV is po...

Re: 3D effect / 3D game mode options in B650 menus

Cool, I already have working IR emitter/receiver for my TV. First I needed to 'record' the original IR signals, though. A trip to a local electronic store again :) The sync could be as easy as selecting the frequency and then adjusting the phase until it's the correct. (Not really sure how precisely...

Re: 3D effect / 3D game mode options in B650 menus

Good question. I don't even know what's Samsung's way of doing that.

Re: 3D effect / 3D game mode options in B650 menus

Hello, I'm soon going to have Gefen HDMI detective , and with that I could be able to send 3D material through HDMI to my UE40B7070, but first I'd need a 3D Blu-ray player - could buy one and then return it before 30 days for full refund - and also I'd need to program the HDMI detective in some 3D s...

Re: HDMI EDID hack to allow 5.1 passthrough

Xbox gives Dolby Digital 5.1 out and that is what the AV receiver got from TV's optical out. I'm not fully familiar with all these different multichannel streams, but DTS != DD, right? According to wikipedia Dolby Digital == AC-3. I should check if I have any DTS DVD's and try them. I assume that si...

HDMI EDID hack to allow 5.1 passthrough

Hello. We already know that Xbox360 connected with HDMI to Samsung can output 5.1 sound and it's coming through TV's optical out. This was possible by disabling so called 'display discovery' from Xbox settings. What I understand is that the display discovery does some EDID query and TV responds to t...

Re: AC3 hdmi -> optical pass through

While this works for Xbox360, I wonder why it does not work for Samsung Blu-Ray player (BD-P1580). The thing must be the HDMI handshake or something like that which detects that the TV can output only stereo, thus the BD player sends only stereo.

Or is there some software hack to allow this?

Re: Audio description

It is the secondary audio language that has the speech audio mixed in. The TV has no speech synthesizer, but that was my first impression.
