I suspect the HDMI may be a malfunction in your set, or related to FIOS. Or is it working the same with DVD/BR?
Yup, my FiOS box was to blame for the stuttering on all my channels over HDMI. A box reset has solved it (for now).
But AMP is definitely worthless right now. It causes nothing but trouble. Blur reduction does not work because using any setting in custom causes major stuttering, and the only preset that seems to work at all without stuttering is clear. I'm starting to believe that the stuttering caused by enabling AMP is due to the motion blur reduction it uses, not the frame interpolation. Here's why I think this might be the case:
Here is their description of the AMP settings:
- Clear - Sets Auto Motion Plus to (low) blur reduction, (high) judder reduction.
- Standard - Sets Auto Motion Plus to (medium) blur reduction, (medium) judder reduction.
- Smooth - Sets Auto Motion Plus to (high) blur reduction, (low) judder reduction.
- Custom - You can set blur and judder reduction to your personal preference.
Now, looking at what each preset above provides - the only preset that works for me with out stuttering is Clear. And that is the preset with the lowest blur reduction setting.
Both Smooth and Custom have blur reduction set higher, and both stutter. Also, custom stutters for me if I enable blur reduction. So the modes that stutter are the ones that use blur reduction. The one out of all those that works without stuttering is also the one that uses the least amount of blur reduction. Of course, this is just a theory - who knows what's really wrong with AMP? But there does seem to be a correlation here.
