I notice you use auqamotion 240 and have film mode on in your settings. Can you explain what the difference is between 120 low, 120 high and 240?
I left the film mode off cause i thought that is what caused that awful soap opera effect. I still have it a little with film mode off but not as bad. I'm curious as to why you are using it. Am I missing something?
Someone in my household likes the soap opera effect, so I avoid problems by leaving it on.
Supposedly, it only kicks in when film is shown. I've gotten used to it, but it is optional.
Same with the Aquomotion 240, which is the highest scanning rate that will also allow the
Resolution Enhancement to operate. Since the panel is already 240 natively, I'm not sure
what it does. I just try to have as little flicker and ghosting as possible and it's worked well.
These TVs have way more capacity than I have use for, so my settings probably are a bit dim.
You can crank the backlight up manually, turn up the color and turn down the brightness to
get a stronger image, or you can just keep moving the minimum sensor up till it's within one
notch of the maximum. That might let the TV have control over dark scenes which it might
lose if you go manual with the backlight. Experiment -- you can't hurt anything and you can
always revert back to a previous setting. Let us know what you discover -- I've only had my
70" UQ for a couple of weeks!
