I registered to post and confirm that the "Some other mode from PC and GAME, turning noise to LOW fixes flicker.."
Basically, I died when I read that NO SETTINGS, with NO HARDWARE, fixes the pc flicker problem. How bloody annoying since this is my MAIN work monitor and I just paid $1500 for it on "clearance" with NO return. Aside from the fact that I no-longer have the box, AND it's massive and impossible to move by myself.
SO, it DID NOT work until I upgraded the firmware!
I set it to SPORTS mode... went in and changed DNR Noise Reduction to LOW, and it works. If I set it to OFF, it still flickers. How friggen annoying.
This ONLY happens when you have picture scale set to "Native." It doesn't flicker if you have it set to FULL.
I have no idea why this happens and it doesn't make sense to me however if you are having problems with the flicker and you found this thread, all you need to do is:
1.) Update Firmware
2.) Select a mode OTHER than PC/Game (to allow you to change Noise Reduction Settings)
3.) Set DNR to LOW
4.) Set Picture to NATIVE
5.) Enjoy 1080P pc viewing!
I had an ollld HDMI cable plugged in to a "mini to normal" adapter in to the back of my GTX570, and I experienced the flicker. I went out and bought a gold-plated Rev 1.4 cable, and it made no difference. Only these DNR settings after firmware upgrade work. Without the firmware upgrade, it didn't fix it.
Gorgeous TV, the prettiest of them all that I've seen. I just bought a pair of glasses, $160 I can't believe it, $50 online, or $160 in the store.............. yuck.
If anything changes I'll update this, but I'm crossing my fingers that I won't have to!
