Not sure how else to describe this - ill be watching content from my PC about 90% of the time. Rare cases ill be using my PS3 for Bluray, or my HD DVR for broadcasts.

For watching 2D content what is the best way to get judder free?

Set the output to 24hz (from 60hz)



And have the tv itself set to 60hz (instead of 48hz - this causes annoying flicker) - and turn off the motion interpolation setting? Or maybe set it to minimum? Or should i just set the output from my Radeon 7970 to 60hz, have the tv set to 60hz (so that the 24p Direct in option is greyed out)?

I thought that Plasmas had faster refresh rates, why is 60hz the highest selectable? Or is this an apples to oranges comparison vs 240hz LCDdisplays? I wanna know how to best take advantage of the
"24p Playback (3:2)/24p Smooth Film yes/ yes
24p Cinematic Playback"


For when im watching 3D content (Half SBS)

Set the output to 24hz on the PC, and turn on 3D Side by Side and set to 48hz? There seems to be a bit of crosstalk which i am very disappointed in...almost debating if this is a deal breaker...ill have to try it with a BluRay 3D movie and proper glasses (using Samsung 4100G cheapo pair at the moment)

Anyways thanks for the help.

Right now im just using Cinema mode (i dont see "True Cinema" that other sites seem to describe) while increasing brightness to about 60 (from 50)

240Hz LCDs can't actually accept a 240Hz signal. They accept 60Hz max, like every other TV. Those high refresh rate figures are marketing BS and the TV just uses interpolation tricks to make extra frames. The only LCDs that can properly display signals above 60Hz are in the PC realm (144Hz and below).

Yes i happen to have an 120hz 1440p IPS display (Overlord Tempest OC).

I figure more expensive yet 1080p displays can hit higher actual refresh rates. They may not accept 240hz signals, but do they actually refresh the screen more than 60hz? I thought that newer tvs do even 24fps if they had a multiple 96hz/120hz/240hz/etc unless im misunderstanding the whole thing - i guess all of this is marketing BS?

http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-VIERA-TC-P55ST50-55-Inch-Plasma/dp/B00752VKSC "Panasonic VIERA TC-P55ST50 55-Inch 1080p 600Hz Full HD 3D Plasma TV" What does that even mean? :P

Anyways - should i be outputing at 24hz and keeping the tv at 60hz for movies?

or 60hz/60hz

or 24hz/48hz?

My video card can output 2560x1440x32bit @ 120hz using Dual Link DVI and DisplayPort - i thought it would easily output 120hz 1080p over HDMI.

Hope this makes sense - thanks.
