Does this display support 3840x2160 / 60Hz? I would assume that since the HDMI ports are HDMI 2.0 that the tv can accept and display 3840x2160/60Hz, but this is not specified on the website.

Also, does this display support UHD-3D, or only 1080p-3D? Again, not specified on the website.

Thank you.

Answer: 
Input) As stated before, you must use HDMI 3 for 4k60fps. Assuming your are using a graphics card on a pc, if the GPU is HDMI 1.4, Nvidia will downsample color to 4.2.2 and run 60fps at 4k. If GPU has HDMI 2.0, I suggest setting to RGB Full Dynamic Color in Nvidia control panel. I can't say the same for AMD.

3D) To run games in 3d at 4k60fps, you have to use built in 3d converted because 3dTV play doesn't support 4k; nor does TriDef 3d I believe. Use the top down setting when using 3d for the best 3d experience. Skyrim looks great using that method compared to side/by/side or checkerboard.

Maybe the TruMotion setting is enabled. Makes the video appear life like. You change the setting by going to settings> picture> picture adjust> picture options> TruMotion. You may turn it off from there or adjust motion clarity to your preference.

Netflix won't connect

I can't get Netflix to work. I am connected to my home network, I turned the firewall off completely. I can connect to netflix on my computer or Xbox 360 but not my brand new TV. It tests the network and gives me a check by internet but red checks by all the netflix servers. What can I do?

Answer: 
You may have to conduct a system update on the TV itself in order for Netflix to work. To do this, go to the settings, then "general settings", and then "about my TV". There is a update button and once it is downloaded, you have to restart your TV. You may have to do this several times to update your TV completely. I recommend you turn on enable automatic updates so you don't ever miss an important update.

There should be no reason you need to disable your Firewall to us this TV with Netflix. You are only inviting security risks by doing so.

Answer: 
It's "possible" that you may need to go on your computer and go into the security settings for your Netflix account. I had to do this with my Blu-Ray player and it generated a code I had to enter. I didn't have any issues with my TV setup, but I had already fixed this issue prior to buying the TV so, I'm not sure this will help. It's worth looking into however.

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in this television. The 55UB8500 has the capability of streaming 4K videos. Check to see if YouTube has such content available. For the smoothest streaming, it is recommended to have a wired connection between the TV and your network router.
