I have seen another mention of this in the thread, but I have never noticed it on mine. If you enable 48 Hz mode it may seem to smooth out the motion a bit on 24p sources, like Blu-ray. If that's...

Thanks for pointing out that thread. I am happy with the upscaling from the PS3, I was just curious as to why it doesn't display those columns. No one seems to know.

I picked up a Fire TV Stick at Staples last night. Figured I could mull over it while I decide whether or not to keep it. For just over $25 after tax, it's not a bad deal.
