As others said the real refresh rate is 240hz, which could perhaps appear as 960hz effect. Here is what I posted on some other forum. Maybe someone finds it interesting:
The 960hz cannot be true. On Sony Style website the HX929 spec states a 240hz panel. I believe 960hz "effect" will be reached as this:
I only state the 24p film scenario. Let's represent original frames as numbers (1,2,3,4,...) and frame interpolation based on the original frame 1 as decimals (1.1,1.2,1.3,...), so frame interpolation based on the original frame 2 would be (2.1,2.2,2.3,...). and finally the blank frames as "B" (black frames padded in by flashing the backlighting).
So 1 frame of the original 24p film content will be flashed/refreshed/interpolated 40 times as this:
40 X 24 = 960
