Default Major color banding issue new Samsung?

I finally got a pic of it off internet, called color banding i guess


https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&...Tr85yUwd-UqCM:


I am starting a new thread to see if I can get more responses. I have done every picture adjustment I can think of , drastically reducing background and turning it to the "standard" setting, and the darker the picture gets (which I dont like at all) the more the effect goes away but never all the way away and always still very noticeable.

This is on internet and directv only it seems not to be on blu ray.


UN65KS800D or 8000, i also have a 55 inch model same thing. I used to own Pioneer Elite Pro Kuro panel and never saw this stuff.

Any ideas?

Check to make sure all your settings in direct look correct and that all output resolutions are selected. Do you use an avr? If no ready is okay that really points to a settings issue or problem with source material

AVR?

Output are correct, it is a known issue with most LED I am finding.

Color banding is common with LCD/led but it typically is all or none of you aren't seeing it sometimes then that points toward signal quality.

AVR= audio video receiver or "receiver". Try checking this out.

Garbage in garbage out. Internet browsers are 1366768 normally then your video card coverts it to resolution you want. Directv will take a signal from station whether it is 720p or 1080i convert it to 4k if you have that box. As you see lots of conversion going on. To get best picture you need 4k bluray or have a clean internet and use a pay service that has 4k video that is filmed in 4k or higher.

Color Banding is not inherent in any one display. It can be apparent in LCD, OLED, Plasma, CRT, etc. It's primary cause is 8 bit color gamut/gray scale which is used in SD, HD and UHD (no HDR) content. It's secondary cause is weak signal strength from content sources like the Internet (Netflix, Amazon, etc). You may have 50 Mbps speed on your internet service but Netflix is probably using 1.5 to 2.0 Mbps. That's why you see less CB on Blu-ray due to it's superior data transfer rate.

The Wide Color Gamut of HDR is 10 bit which eliminates CB two fold: first it provides billions of colors instead of just millions and most important the Gray Scale is 1024 steps instead of 8 bits 256 steps.

Yeah, that is what it looks like. I do have HDR, I should watch a netflix in HDR and see if it is there.

I just got a new one connect box from Samsung, didnt help at all.

Don't be surprised if you see Color Banding on UHD with HDR content from Netflix. Again . . . you are dealing with a data transfer rate of 25 Mbps or less.

UHD Blu-ray is 108 Mbps for a dual layer and 128 Mbps for a triple layer

Will an external steaming device, such as Roku Ultra or Amazon Fire Cube, eliminate this problem? I have a Vizio P55 F1, and the banding is terrible on Netflix (especially in dark scenes), but Blu-Rays look fine.
