No the class of the tv is the screen size. For example, 40 inch class will have all 40 inch tvs of different brands and the 32 inch class will have all differnt brands that come in 32 inch screen size.

It can be, depending on how it's used.

Class typically describes a "level" or "series" of television. Without further context, however, I'm unable to confirm if that's what you are looking for.

if you are connecting to regular cable, the answer is no, but if you are going to use HDMI then you will need one of those cables, but don't spend a lot on them as ones costing less than $30 do just as well as those costing way more.

All current generation Samsung TVs are digital cable and Antenna ready. All of our TVs include a coax ATSC/QAM tuner that handles digital and analogue broadcast signals as well. No external boxes or equipment needed to view your basic cable. An antenna is required for over the air broadcasts. Premium service may require additional equipment and fees. Please contact your service provider for details.
If you plan to connect other 3rd party devices like a DVD or Blu-Ray Player, please refer to the manual of that device for information on cables that may be needed for connection to the Samsung TV.

Hi. We faced the same dilemma. Same Samsung LCD-HDTV, which is an awesome tv, but we would love to use it to it's full potential. We thought about getting the Samsung internet adapter (we may still do that), but have made do with the internet connection through our PS3. We're even able to download movies on directv cinema. As I said, we may still get the adapter, but the PS3 is sufficing for now.

Although this model (D630) does not have direct access to Samsung Apps (like Netflix, Pandora or YouTube) nor any other internet content, it can access App content through a 2010-11 Samsung BD player (the blu-ray player will handle the Internet content processing).

Thank you for the opportunity to assist you,

Yes, in fact it has muliple settings to save money in a built in adjustable sensor , called the "eco sensor". It will automatically adust the brightness control based on the light in the room around the TV. So in a dark room at night it will automatically dim and save you money. This feature has several options and can be also turned off if you choose.

As a matter of fact, the Auto Motion Plus feature that offers the frame interpolation system can be enabled on almost any input (including the HDMI input that the PS3 supports).

To adjust Auto Motion Plus, please follow the directions below. Settings are based on your personal preference, so unfortunately, I cannot provide any incite as to how to set up your TV. I can provide you with a list of what each setting does.

Auto Motion Plus is found under the following directions:
MENU → Picture → Picture Options → Auto Motion Plus

Auto Motion Plus Settings:
Off- Switches Auto Motion Plus off.
Clear- Provides high blur reduction, low judder reduction
Standard- Provides medium blur reductions, medium judder reduction
Smooth- Provides low blur reductions, high judder reduction.
Custom- Allows for customer user settings for blur and judder.
Demo- Displays the difference between Auto Motion Plus 120Hz on and off modes. The screen after applying “Auto Motion Plus” appears on the left.

There is an audio output on the back of the TV. All you need is the cable to hook it up. Since you are talking about RCA cables I believe that you have the correct cable. I have my TV hooked up through my home theater receiver but through my set top (dish) box and sound wise that is the only way to go. For the TV in my bedroom I used an old set of computer speakers with a subwoofer. I just hooked them up through the headphone jack. That too has worked out very well.

On the LN40D630, you most certainly can connect an analogue receiver for audio listening. However, to do so, you will need to purchase a 3.5mm jack to RED/WHITE RCA cable to connect the TV's 3.5mm Audio output to your receivers RED/WHITE inputs.

Question

Wireless connection with BD 6500 Samsung blu-ray?

Seems to have worked initially but now the only choice I get when going to network setup on the t.v. menu is wired connection! I have the hdmi cable connecting t.v. & blu-ray? Any idea why I'm not getting the wireless option on the network setup? My router & other devices(laptop) are working fine. Do I need an adapter along with blu-ray to stream netflix etc. Thanks, JDA

If you have the LN40D630, this model doesn't have wifi capability. If you want to stream netflex, you will have to get a device capable of doing so. Hope this helped!

Although the LN40D630 does not have direct access to Samsung Apps (like Netflix, Pandora or YouTube), it can display App content from a 2010-11 Samsung BD player (the blu-ray player will handle the Internet content processing, similar to how a monitor will display the PC’s video signal). Additionally, although this model offers AllShare DLNA for streaming saved content from a DLNA device (PC, Cell Phone, Etc.) through a wired or wireless connection with a Samsung Linkstick to a home network, the Linkstick itself cannot add Internet@TV or Smart TV functionality. The Linkstick can only facilitate a network connection to Samsung Devices that already offer either network connectivity or Internet@TV and Samsung Apps.

Thank you for the opportunity to assist you,

LCD is liquid crystal display, LED is light emitting diode. So in terms of televisions the LED will have a longer picture life and a faster refresh rate. If you are not into heavy gaming the LCD will work fine and cost quite a bit less. When I went with my hi-def TV's I went with LCD based on the factor that I am not into gaming and the cost. I am pleased with my decision.

LCD traditionally uses a CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp) backlighting system that runs across the rear internal portion of the unit to illuminate the LCD panel from behind. This lamp technology enjoys a tremendous following of enthusiasts, and translates into years of enjoyment of an affirmed, reliable and trusted technology.

LED (in this application, it is also known as LCD-LED) is relatively new on the market, and uses specialized versions of the LED lights that have been used for years. It allows LCD panels to be lit either from behind (replacing the CCFLs with LEDs), or from the side using an efficient energy friendly infrastructure that emits light evenly behind the panel in order to illuminate the entire LCD panel equally, called EDGE-LED. EDGE-LED Technology has a few additional benefits in that the design of the LED panel can be slimmer than traditional LCD panels and reduces energy consumption.

LED also has a few additional benefits, such as offering an accurate and natural color, as well as increased performance with black levels. LED is also free from toxic materials, such as mercury, lead or volatile organic compounds.

If you have hi-def service the amount of data being processed by the TV is much larger than standard def service. When I got my first hi-def TV there were a couple of times that I freaked out and thought something was wrong with my set because it did take a bit longer than my older sets. Since I have gotten used to the delay it just seems normal.

Although I would not personally know why your TV may have a delay when changing channels, it is possible that the cable or over-the-air service that is being fed into the TV's QAM/ATSC coax input may be affecting how the TV processes the signal. Please ensure that all cables and connections are properly and tightly secured onto the TV's inputs and ensure that the signal the TV is receiving is strong and stable (your cable service provider may need to send out a technician for this one). I would suggest contacting your local Geek Squad or Samsung Support for more information and for further assistance.
