Does your 1080p TV flicker when DNR is turned off?
I just bought a new 1080p HDTV about a month ago. I notice that DNR is turned on by default so I turned it off since it takes away some detail in the picture. The instruction manual says that DNR removes picture noise to reduce flickering. And that's what happens; the picture flickers when DNR is turned off. The flickering occurs when there is a lot of fine detail in the image, especially skyscraper shots. It even happens too when the image is very very grainy. The grain would pulsate and flicker. This goes away when DNR is turned on. The higher the DNR setting, the more it goes away. This occurs mostly on Blu-rays since it produces the sharpest picture. It doesn't happen much on HD cable (which is set at 1080i)
My previous TV was 720p and I never had this issue, even with DNR turned off, so I don't know if this is something that normally happens on a 1080p TV since this is my first time owning one.
So, is it normal for the picture to flicker on a 1080p TV when DNR is off? Does your 1080p TV do the same thing?
