I apologize in advance for the total ignorance of my post. I bought the 55" LV5500 about 2 weeks ago when fry's had it on sale for under $1,000. I'm moving at the end of next month and my building charges $100 to move anything in or out, so the tv is 1/3 of the way through a 6 week vacation at my friend's place.
I have only had limited opportunity to play with the TV and have overall been very happy with the image. I did run into an issue watching Dark Knight (dvd, not blu-ray) which I'm hoping can be resolved with some of the changes to settings I've seen on this forum (I think it might be a TruMotion issue). In the scene where Bruce and Alfred are in the secret hideout under a shipping container, the two actors looked incredibly lifelike (it felt like they were in the room with us), but the background looked kind of fake, almost green-screeny.
My friend hasn't messed with the settings at all (since it is my tv), but has decided that this would be a dealbreaker if he had purchased the TV. (He has also been annoyed by the dimming effect based on ambient light as it kept switching back and forth at sunset, but I've already decided this setting is getting switched off for me). Is this the "soap opera" effect mentioned elsewhere and can it be avoided with proper setting adjustment, or something I need to be prepared to live with if I'm going to keep the tv past the return deadline?
Thanks for the advice.
