I recently purchased the Panasonic VT30 (55") and absolutely love the tv... however, gaming on it really isn't that great.

I've found that any games that play at 60 frames per second look real sharp during movement, but any games that play at less than 60 look like garbage during motion. There's an unbearable amount of judder and some screen tearing.

I've tried using the motion smoother at off/weak/strong and it doesn't seem to help any.

So in essence, games like Modern Warfare 3 look amazing while Skyrim looks like crap.

I'm wondering if getting a video processor would fix this and if so, what some of you might recommend. Also, if this would infact work for games less than 60 frames per second, would it then negatively impact games that run at 60 frames?

I don't want to fix one problem to cause another if you know what I mean.

Are you using a PS3, Xbox 360 or PC? And are you using HDMI and is whatever you're using outputting at 1080p?

I should also note that I'm running everything through a Pioneer Elite vsx-52 receiver, however I have the video processing through the receiver turned off.

I've tried messing with those settings on and it didn't make a difference

All the judder and tearing you see is already present on the console's output. No matter if a game's running at v-locked 30fps or 60fps or with tearing (= without v-lock) at anything in between, the system's output is 1080p60, so it doesn't make a difference for any processor or TV set.

If that were the case though, wouldn't I see the same problem on any screen?

My LCD didn't do this and I'm growing to understand it's a problem more prevelant with plasmas.

Forgive my ignorance. I'm only relatively fluent with this stuff
