How to tune out the vuvuzela buzz on a Samsung TV


Timely, what?

Writes Cliff, "Menu/Vol/EQ it's Bb, so drop 300Hz and boost adjacent eqs. Save as Custom. Done!"

Neither of my TVs has an equalizer function, just bass and treble, so I'm out of luck.

Hope you're more fortunate.

Put 1Khz on Zero ...it diminishes the vuvuzela's effect, still audible but a lot better.

The above doesn't work.

However I have a Samsung and what works is:

100Hz +25%
300Hz +25%
1KHz zero
3kHz zero
10kHz maximun

Vuvuzelas still audible but you get rid of the high pitch and much less annoying.

Just tried it on my Samsung. Doesn't work. As a matter of fact, as others have pointed out, it makes it worse!

I have found a way to completely overcome this annoying "electric buzz" background sound to the World Cup games. I change the channel and it goes away. Part of the atmosphere of WC soccer is the crowd noise, sadly missing in 2010. Suppose when the WC is played in England British hooliganism will be touted as part of the atmosphere there.

You might not need a Samsung after all...
