Can use some help, with apologies in advance if I'm being dumb. Today I got by second UN60D7000 home. The first one had no clouding or banding or flashlighting issues to speak of, but the lip sync issue was driving me batty.
Followed Anismo's advice and direct connected another input source(3D Blueray) directly to another HDMI input, tried 3 different DirecTV HD receivers or PVRs, direct connected the DirecTV to HMDI source, changed HMDI cables. Finally took it back to BB rather than wait for service call.
I am using Droozy's initial post on Movie Mode (supplemented by Anismo). Still very happy with the picture except for a new development:
1. Today watching golf and baseball, I noticed for the first time with either set that there was a "trail" effect on the ball. This bugs. I decided LED tech was fine since I only watch golf, cycling, baseball and football, none of which are super "fast action" sports. Since I had Droozy's settings running, I had LED Motion set to OFF and Auto Motion Plus set to CLEAR. After I noticed this, I turned LED Motion ON. Frankly, I have no idea what either does. Is there a way to eliminate this? I ran the first UN60D7000 for over two weeks without noticing a "trail" so I know it can be done.
2. Lip Sync issue: it's the same with the replacement set, essentially confirming for me that it's not the TV (spent hours with Samsung Tech Support) and was told I was an idiot by the dude at BB since he connected the first one to a Blueray and told me it was fine. I forced the exchange anyway, telling him, I don't care whether you observe it or not. It's clearly happening with a lot of different cables, settings, DirecTV boxes, direct connect. I may owe him an apology, because the same issue on two tvs suggests the problem is elsewhere though his attitude sucked.
So, the culprit has to be my Denon AV-887. It's a few years old and I'm no audiophile, just want surround sound that sounds decent. I have HDMI (new cable 1.4 running from the DirecTV HR24-500 to the Denon and output from the Denon to HDMI 1/DVI on the D7000. Is there some setting on the Denon I need to change, maybe the way its processing sound? I don't think it can handle 3D anyway.
Do I need to investigate a newer AVR? If, so, any strong recommendations? Newer Denon, Onkyo?
Sorry for length.
