Hey Konica Tech are you running 3.26?
Its true! Nony gave me a crash course in what TruMotion looks like when it is off and when it is on. I had to stand right in front of the set -- about 1.5 arm lengths away -- and toggle TruMotion off/on while credits on a DVD were rolling to be able to discern the difference. (There's a slight difference between low and high but a huge difference between off and on.)
I turned TruMotion off, powered the set off then powered it back on. TruMotion was still off.
My husband is the primary watcher of the set and normal watching mode for him is with TruMotion on low.
This is very subjective as I'm sure that we all see things differently. If you're interested, what I saw was:
(Again, the credits were rolling at the end of a movie; white letters rolling on a black background.)
TruMotion Off: Horribly jittery letters.
TruMotion On: Smooth letters, smooth scrolling
How to explain "horribly jittery letters?" Here's the best I can come up with.... For those of you who live in So. Cal., imagine a fast shaking earthquake (as opposed to a rolling one) hitting while you were watching the credits roll. It is almost as if the letters are strobing on/off and jumping around.
When Trumotion is back on, the earthquake is over.
As I mentioned before I don't know if this was the case before the updates but now, if the panel's speakers are turned off then the set powered off and back on, the speakers are still off.
I personally can't understand why one would want to turn it off (especially since I don't like earthquakes!) but that's neither here nor there .
The important thing is that it does stay off if you turn it off and power off/on the set.
College Football season (one of my husband's favorite things) is just a few days away. Given the amazing clarity of this set, Hubby is going to be a happy man!
Thanks to nony for stepping me through how to watch "The Earthquake Channel!"
