The TV either has it or doesn't. Fine Motion Enhanced is Sharps technology of maximizing the response time of the pixels.

Fine Motion Enhanced On/Off in Sharp lingo means Motion Interpolation On/Off. It's very confusing since Film Mode Advanced Low/High apparently also have effect on the interpolation algorithm.

Going to Best Buy tonight.Can't decide between the LCD 60 And the LED 52.Any last minute advise? Basically the same price. Do I go for size or the features with the LED.

How do you guys deal with the popping sounds the 60 incher makes when you shut it off?

I have changed every setting in an attempt to eliminate this motion stutter with no luck. The problem only seems to appear on 1080i channels. The picture is rock solid on 720p channels. Consequently, I have set my DirecTV HR20-700 to only output at 720p. Is this an acceptable answer or do I have a lemon and should take the TV back? Any opinions would be appreciated.

I don't think that's correct. I'll email Sharp and find out for sure.

Well during 1080i Nba playoff games turning off film mode stopped my slomo problem.

I have now turned Fine Motion Enhanced off and it looks to be promising. I think my DirecTV HR20-700 doesn't want to play nice with the 120 Hz processing in the TV. It's my understanding that turning Fine Motion Enhanced off reverts the TV back to 60 Hz processing. If my understanding of Fine Motion Enhanced is wrong, please correct me.

You need to turn off film mode. That is what is causing the slow motion effect because of incorrect frame rates. DNR and the fine motion settings are not responsible.

Thank you for the suggestion, but I already had film mode turned off - that's were I first started. If anything, I have since experimented with film mode turned on and it seems to help a little - wierd.

I was hoping someone here would say you need to turn "this" on or off and your problem would be solved. With the lack of a specific answer to my problem, and having searched all of the internet for a solution with no luck, I think I must have got a lemon.

Well I have had my TV since March 1st. I am using a DirecTV HR23-700 so maybe that is different. I too noticed the same problem upon initial use, AV mode was on auto. I stopped using auto mode mostly because the auto contrast setting was annoying. I stick with stnd or movie mode, always with film mode off, unless playing 24fps sources like blu-ray discs.

What a nightmare! This lemon is going back.
I'm really bummed-gotta load it in the truck without the box because it was flattened.
Either that or they can deliver me another one for free-if not I'm getting a full credit back!

I have had my audio cut off 3 or 4 times since I purchased this TV in Nov 2010. I always try to figure out if it is the TV or my Bose but by the time I get to switch around to narrow down and troubleshoot it comes back on. Is this possibly an issue with this TV? Anyone else having the issue?

I would think if setting your DVR to 720p eliminates the problem, it would indicate a bad deinterlacer in the TV.

FWIW, I occasionally had this problem with my Tivo, and simply hitting the instant replay button once, causes the TV to resync with the video, and the problem stops. I am running all my video through a DVDO, and outputting 1080p, so I do not know if this relates to your problem or not. Worth a try though.

Just a note of useless information.. I had a new A/C unit installed this week.
The installer was walking around the house checking the temperature of the air coming out of the vents with a laser thermometer. He kept pointing it at my Sharp for some reason. When he was done, he told me "You have the coolest running LCD I have seen". Apparently he checks everyones when he does an install. He said his at home runs 125f and most LCDs are in the 110-130 range. He said the Sharp was only 95F. Said it would really help with keeping the A/C bills lower.

I do recall feeling heat radiating from the front of my old Sharp 46" almost a foot away from the screen, and this 60" is cool right up to the screen.

Just a trivial note

My Toshiba kicked some heat out as well.

We purchased this Sharp 60 inch after months of looking and it was too good of a deal to pass up; I upgraded my old Yamaha receiver to a Denon and bought a Samsung Blu Ray so I could access the internet as well. The only issue I seem to have is that the sound is off on some of the HD stations on Directv -- anyone have this problem or any ideas on how to fix? Also, I know there have been discussions that I saw when I was researching the various options, but not sure what consensus is -- Best Buy wants me to pay them a lot to calibrate the TV after it has a couple hundred hours on it -- is this really necessary, can it be done myself or is there a less expensive option to have someone do it for us? Thank you in advance for any information, I am technology challenged

I found the only way to get rid of the soap opera effect 100% is to put the tv on gaming mode which completely disables film mode.

DVDO? Not sure what you mean by DVDO but I think you're onto something here about this TV having trouble with 1080i sources vs. 1080P. I especially see bad image display from DirecTV 1080i output when scenes contain mist or fog in them. The TV can't process these scenes correctly and lots if digital noise is present, no matter if DNR is used or not.

I determined that there was definitely a problem with the TV and how it was processing interlaced signals. Consequently, I returned the TV to Best Buy for an even exchange. With the replacement TV installed, I am experiencing no problems. Looks like I just had a bad unit.

Glad it was a semi-easy, and free fix. I love this TV.

The question is, do you wish to have a TV that fits in your room or dominates your room?

Hey - for anyone on the fence, I just got an email from Best Buy announcing a midnight sale, and the Sharp LC60E78UN is on the list of items. The price will be revealed at midnight EDT tonight and the sale runs through tomorrow morning at 8:00 AM EDT. I don't know what the midnight sale price will be, but it is currently listed at 1299.

I've had this TV since Februry 2011 and have been compeltely delighted with it!

Less than $1299 is a steal for a 60in lcd.

That stinks...just had it delivered yesterday.

Does anyone know if the optical out on this unit is full audio, like 5.1 and not just two channel? The answer will determine how many optical wires I need to order. If it is, I can just go from the TV to the AVR, otherwise I need three from each component to the AVR.

Not sure on this model but from previous experience trying to get 5.1 from a TV I would say the answer is NO for what you want.

If you are watching OTA content you can get 5.1 out but for running blu-ray/game console/DVR/DVD I believe you will only get stereo.

Does anyone know what the Bestbuy offer was for the midnight sale? I accidentally fell asleep and was just wondering what I missed out.
