First thing I did, was to pass all the video straight from the receiver to the TV without any conversion or processing. When that didn't help I tried setting the output from the receiver to 1080p, 1080p/24 (made it really bad), and to auto and none of those did anything.
I then figured that maybe my receiver was messing up things, so I went straight into the TV with my xbox and cable box. Xbow was plugged into HDMI 2 and my cable box went into HDMI 1. The issue still occured.
Bluray player - 1080p
Xbox - 1080p
Cable box - 1080i, 720p (I've changed to output just 720p and didn't help)
Last night I was messing around with settings and turned on game mode. With my xbox it seemed to fix it. At least in the one game that I am able to replicate the stuttering issue. I also put it on with the cable box and it seemed to work as well. The tickers at the bottom of news or ESPN would either stutter right when it started to scroll and then clear up or just stutter the entire time. Now they scroll smoothly. So while I think game mode fixes it (haven't tested it enough yet), it really isn't a complete fix since I'm stuck with certain picture settings.
Heh, don't set 24p, that will make you want to punch something if you're inputting a 60fps source.
Ok, lets take a step back and work with 1 device at a time and see if there's an issue with the set.
First some background, this lag/stutter that people see is normally caused by some extra processing/conversion that was done to the source.
Now, lets start with the cable box, in it's settings you have the ability to set fixed 720p or 1080i or auto, set this to auto.
Lets work with HDMI2 on the TV, plug the cable box into HDMI2, and reset the picture options for HDMI2.
Flip around your HD channels, is the resolution changing differently on different channels? 720p/1080i? or is it staying fixed? Cycle through quite a few of them, you should see the TV swap modes, it might pause for a second or 2 when it does.
See if there's any difference in the lag, if you're on a 1080i channel you will now be able to adjust "film mode"
What model is your Bluray player? and what Blurays do you have kicking around? I'll work on that next as I get time, one thing at a time.
