just like last year’s midrange and top-tier HDTV models from the Korean conglomerate, the Samsung UE55D8000 still has its noise reduction feature running permanently in the background, unless the user enables [Game Mode] . This occurs even when the TV’s noise reduction controls are disabled in the user menu. As with even the best noise reduction systems, the noise reduction causes motion artefacting: for example, with the Blu-ray Disc of Black Swan (shot mostly on fairly grainy 16mm film), the NR processing causes the actors and actresses to look as if they are wearing excessively powdery make-up which is flaking off their faces during any sort of movement. Sony’s The Counterfeiters – probably the grainiest Blu-ray Disc we can think of – isn’t too pleasant to watch on the UE55D8000 for the same reason. What’s left of the grain appears to “swim” around and cling to actors as they move. Even in cases where the forced noise reduction doesn’t cause motion artefacting and does a good job of differentiating between the film grain and the actors/props/sets, the D8000′s pictures are subjectively less detailed due to the lack of high frequency grain.
In short: with all the digital noise filters turned off, there is still temporal smoothing of the incoming video. For example film grain isn't reproduced correctly by this unwanted smoothing. This smoothing effect can only be switched off by turning on "Game mode", which introduces other problems (no 10 point greyscale, judder with 24p film material, disables motion plus).
Is there a option to fix a firmware to turns the digital noise filters off ?
