If the college isn't providing boxes then it's high likely that they're not using QAM. It could even be an antenna feed, and not "cable" at all. As others have stated, the OP needs to talk to the...

I've turned off Film Mode on my P65. The framerate issues seem to be greatly reduced. I suspect that Film Mode intermittently thinks that it is seeing a 24p cadence in 60i/60p material where the...
