I don't know what to do. I have the 55HU8550 which generally looks good, except for the motion handling. The source is over the air broadcast 1080i. I have motion preset on "clear." I've tried all the other motion presets, including the custom settings to no avail. The problem is this; I'm watching a football game, the line is set, just before the snap of the ball the back goes into motion and it looks like the picture is in film mode or 24p cadence, then seems to synch up just before the ball is snapped and looks like normal motion for the rest of the play.
By using the motion presets, or the custom settings I can alter the overall motion characteristic to mimic film or the soap opera effect, or something inbetween. But what's distracting is this "synch-up" (if that's what it is) that causes the cadence to switch from a film like cadence to a normal cadence, or from a normal cadence into a film-like cadence.
This doesn't happen with 24p blu-ray which looks just great. It also doesn't happen with true 1080/60p source video. But the problem does happen with 720p. It's like it has a problem detecting pulldown and cadence.
