About the Samsung LN-T4661F
The Samsung LN-T4661F is their most affordable 46" HDTV with 1080p screen resolution. Why is 1080p important? For most HDTV broadcasts, as well as other HD sources like high-definition discs, it takes a 1080p display to show the dazzling amount of picture detail available. If you care about picture quality, 1080p is what you want.
Samsung's advanced LCD panel design
Year in and year out, Samsung continually refines their LCD panel design. All LCD screens are made up of pixels, and each pixel has three "sub-pixels": one each for the red, green, and blue color primaries. Samsung's S-PVA screen further divides each sub-pixel into segments to maintain better consistency in color and contrast at wide viewing angles.
Lots of high-def options
The LN-T4661F includes tuners for receiving both analog and digital over-the-air broadcasts (antenna required). Cable TV subscribers can use the built-in "QAM" tuner to tune in unscrambled cable channels without a set-top box. With three HDMI inputs and two component video, it's easy to add multiple high-definition video sources like an HD satellite tuner or video game console, or one of the new Blu-ray or HD DVD high-def disc players.
New HDMI connections enhance remote-control operation
Home theater fans love HDMI connections for their stellar picture quality and single-cable simplicity. Here's more good news the LN-T4661F's Anynet+ HDMI connections include "CEC" control capability, which lets you control other compatible HDMI-connected components using only the TV's remote. That's a huge plus if you keep your components out of sight in a cabinet or closet. You have total control without resorting to complicated remote booster systems.

The TV can be set to automatically adjust to the video signals received, or you can use the setup menu to adjust the screen quality and position. No cables are supplied for connecting the TV to a PC.
Picture-In-Picture (PIP): The Picture-In-Picture feature allows you to watch two video sources (TV, VCR, DVD) simultaneously. The Picture-In-Picture feature allows you to view an analog TV broadcast on the PIP screen (sub-picture) when the main picture is from an external device connected by HDMI, Component or PC. The TV has only one tuner, so you cannot watch two TV channels at the same time. There are three PIP views: Double Window (side-by-side split screens and each screen has a 4:3 aspect ratio), Double Wide (side-by-side split screens and each screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio), or standard picture-in-picture (a small window inside the full screen). In the standard picture-in-picture mode, the inset PIP window can be moved to any of the screen's four corners. PIP will not work while the V-chip or xvYCC is in use.
Freeze: The still button allows you to freeze an image on the screen, it can only be activated from the remote control. When you freeze the picture the audio continues normally.
Digital Signal Strength Meter: The digital signal strength meter can be used to help you find the antenna position that delivers the highest HDTV digital signal strength.
Analog Channel Fine Tuning: The fine tuning feature allows you to manually adjust analog channels for optimal reception. A separate fine tuning setting may be put into the TV's memory for each analog channel.
Low Noise Amplifier (LNA): In a weak signal area reception might be improved by boosting the incoming signal using the LNA function. A separate LNA setting may be put into the TV's memory for each channel.
Auto Volume: Auto volume automatically adjusts the volume of the desired channel, lowering the sound output when the modulation signal is high or raising the sound output when the modulation signal is low. This reduces the difference in volume when changing channels.
Digital Noise Reduction: If the broadcast signal received by your TV is weak, you can activate the Digital Noise Reduction feature to help reduce any static and ghosting that may appear on the screen.
Automatic Sound Settings: You can choose from the following sound settings:
Standard: resets the standard factory settings
Music: for watching music videos and concerts
