Other problem is I use an HTPC & watch TV through a hdhomerun (cablecard). Adding a PC into the mix complicates the whole process, I know it does. I know a regular cable box will give me slightly better motion performance, because I have both right now & I see the difference with the box. Even using the box though, I still see occasional judder on offending shows.
Can you please give a full breakdown of your advanced settings & picture options that may impact motion? Maybe I'm missing something. Also, what is your input named? I have htpc named "TV".
I am using most of my F9000 settings from CNET on my HU8550 with some tweaks here and there. To borrow from an old post ""Film Mode → Off / Auto1 / Auto2
The TV can be set to automatically sense and process film signals from all sources and adjust the picture for optimum quality.
Film Mode is supported in TV, Video, Component (480i / 1080i) and HDMI (480i / 1080i).
Off: Turns the Film Mode function off.
Auto1: Automatically adjusts the picture for the best quality when watching a film.
Auto2: Automatically optimizes the video text on the screen (not including closed captions) when watching a film."
Essentially it matches the cadence of the source. I think there is more to it then that but I am no expert. I leave all my input names stock and actually have everything going through my receiver to my ARC port (Including my PC), I have picture size on Screen Fit, I stick with movie mode, I keep my Auto Motion settings on Custom. Here are my settings for both essentially with some minor tweaks:
Worth noting Katz also posted his HU9000 settings on CNET recently. Also as to the sources quoted above, that is from 2010 so I am sure it has been updated.
