Try doing a firmware update first of all.
The ghosting you're seeing might be from motion interpolation, it will be on by default. Try turning it off and play the same scenes again to verify if that's it. Mine is set at de-judder: 3 and de-blur: 9. But again, it depends on the content and subjectively on your perception. I find my settings are acceptable. For me. Also try the scene in the FOTR Blu-Ray when Gandalf arrives at Bag End. The pan shot just when he arrives. Try it with Tru-Motion (interpolation) Off, then at High. That scene will show you what interpolation can do: jerky without, smooth with it on.
Re-enable your WiFi, and maybe reset your router. Mine works fine. You may have to move your router a little if there's something interfering with the signal. Mine was slow out of the box, for some reason, but it got much better once the TV settled in.
Just as with motion interpolation, the 2D -> 3D conversion is heavily dependent on the content. Try the Star Wars episode One Blu-Ray. That one converts fairly well. I don't normally use that option, I only watch 3D Blu-Rays and 3D captures.
Have you checked yet for uneven backlighting and flashlighting with the TV in Standard mode? Standard mode is okay for a well-lit room. Calibration settings I'm sure will be posted on the dedicated thread by other owners.
If you intend to use an external hard drive, here are a few tips:
- Use a powered drive.
- Your partition limit will be 2 TB, using the old standard MBR (master boot record) partitioning. The newer GPT partitioning will not be recognized, so partitions over 2 TB cannot be used.
- Format as NTFS. No limit on file size as with FAT formatting.
- File types recognized are listed in the manual.
Thumb drives can be used as well, of course.
