Issue w/ Samsung pnXXc7000

Hello all,

I have followed the forums for years, but this is my first post. I currently have a 4 year old 50" Samsung 7000 plasma. My Directv Genie is connected via HDMI to my Xbox One and to a Denon AVR. Approximately four months ago I noticed the "soap opera effect" particularly while watching sports. The firmware is up to date and there is no motion or game setting available to toggle.

This is reoccurring issue that comes and goes--sometimes in the middle of a broadcast.

Any thoughts?

Did you try switching your DirectTV box from 1080i to 1080p, or vice versa?

Hmmm. I have not. I have the resolution set by default to 1080p. Would switching to 1080i be beneficial?

Actually just looked at my Genie and realized all content (aside from VOD) can not scroll past 1080i for resolution. I know this tv had issues when it was first released in 10/11 with this issue, but a firmware release supposedly fixed the issue. Apparently the tv's "game mode" created a soap opera effect during broadcasts. I'm just perplexed as to why it's coming on and off.
