Have had the 60 inch for a about 100 hours of break in...and am disappointed in sports such as football and golf ... the ball blurs and tiles until motion slows. I went with plasma for a higher refresh rate for exactly these events. Does anyone have suggestions on ways to improve? Thanks!!!

Might want to re-read what 600Hz is actually measuring, because it's not the refresh rate.

Either way, each individual frame is rendered so nicely and colorfully. cool.gif

not to be rude, but 60inch plasma doesn't tell us anymore than 4door car.

there's a reason some plasmas cost 600bux and some cost 4k. give us some details on what you bought, and what the source is, and perhaps what you're comparing it to as well(as motion on a 40inch will always looking better than on a 60inch, all else being equal) and maybe we can point you in the right direction.

I've seen this at times and discovered it wasn't my plasma tv, it was the source. I found out by recording the scenes on my DVR then playing it back in slo-mo or stopping it. If it shows up then it's the source.

Usually a bit-starved source will cause the motion blur on a plasma... Nothing, to me, looks as good as a Live high bit-rate OTA 1080i game. OTA is usually the best looking picture, next to Blu-Ray, of course. Yesterday watching Swimming on NBC, the picture blurred , but when I switched to Golf on CBS it was rock solid.... Both 1080i, both on Cox Cable... CBS has no sub-channels, NBC has 2...

Thanks for posts...my set is the Samsung pn60f8500. I have direct tv. I switched motion judder cancelled in advanced settings off vs. "smooth" setting and have seen better results. Counter intuitive, but worked.

I'd never use any of that processing. take the signal as natively as possible is always best in my opinion.

usually that processing is only good for long pans, it can't keep up with random motion.
