Well, I have updated my Samsung 55" Smart TV UN55ES6100FXZA to firmware 001031, and I am very pleased with the results. The update has drastic improvements on the smoothness of the display while watching cable broadcasts. Below is my "new" changes to my settings, I still have the "wi-fi" and "smarthub" disabled. But I noticed it is still bloody hell trying to watch BBC's "Nightmare Kitchen", it is still very jittery, I think it is the show itself because "Top Gear" shows just fine.

Film Mode: Off
Auto Motion Plus: Off (for those whom enjoys this mode, I noticed the "Standard" setting works very well)

Thank You Samsung!

EDIT: (Aug. 16, 2013) Please read my new post #156 regarding new firmware 001043.

I have had a UN60D6420 for over 2 years and have always had AMP set to Clear. I prefer to have my Denon X2000 do all video processing from my two sources, which are a DirecTv HR34 HD DVR and a Sony BDP-S5100 BD player. I have the BD player set to output the native resolution on the disc, and I have 24p output set to off because it causes unpredictable lip-sync issues on my set up. I have been generally happy with the Clear AMP setting, but have always hated the ghosting of balls in football (the great american kind) baseball, golf and the puck in hockey. Any setting other than Off is un-watchable for me due to the various reasons that have been discussed in depth already in this thread.

I decided to try some testing using my Spears & Munsil 2 disc to see if there are any differences between Clear & Off and the results surprised me. I used the video test that has 2 wedge shaped images made up of white lines, with the wedge on the left oriented vertically and the wedge on the right oriented horizontally and they move around the screen in a clockwise direction, and they do so in various cadences.

With AMP set to Clear, there were varying amounts of artifacts with some I would call severe, in the wedges depending on the cadence, but when I set AMP to Off, the artifacts lessened by a large degree on each and every test regardless of the cadence. The artifacts were mainly flickering or flashing and were easily seen. Selecting any setting other than OFF (Clear, Standard, Smooth, Custom) produced the artifacts, with some settings better than others depending on the cadence, but all were worse than Off...............So based on this test I have been using Off for the last few weeks, and will do so from now on. The pros of AMP simply don't out weigh all of the negatives it produces.

I have my set on Clear & was watching a program which a model train moving down the track & it did not look smooth at all. I changed AMP to Smooth & then the train ran nice & smooth. I guess depending on content one might want to use different AMP settings.

Agreed. I was watching Saving Private Ryan on BD, and custom 8/3 looked great to me, but that same setting on a MLB game was awful. Hitching, jerking and over crapism is what I saw. I had to switch to either Off or Clear.

I just updated both of my tv's (UN55ES6100 & UN46ES6100) with the latest firmware 001043, and my experience with both tv's while watching cable broadcasts has been very positive. I noticed the overall picture quality and smoothness of motion has been nicely improved. Even the tv show Nightmare Kitchen is much more watchable because it is much smoother in picture quality, but now noticed have some ghosting.

Below are my "new" setting changes on both tv's that seems to work well with this new update. Please note that after "all" the updates has been made, I still have the "wifi" and "smarthub" disabled (please refer to post #146).

Picture Settings -
Backlight: 09 or 10 (I prefer 09)
Contrast: 75

Advanced Settings -
Dynamic Contrast: Off
Color Space: Native

Picture Options -
Digital Noise Filter: Off
MPEG Noise Filter: Off
Auto Motion Plis: Off (for those whom enjoys this mode, I noticed "Clear", "Standard", "Smooth" all works very well.)
