Hi all, I have really found the information in this thread and forum very useful and it was influential in my decision to purchase a 55GT30. I absolutely LOVE my new Panny!
I could use some advice though (maybe others have experienced the same issue?)-
I use a PS3 (160GB Slim) for my gaming and BR movies and the first BR movie I watched on my Panny was LOTR- Fellowship of the Ring, which was AWESOME in THX! I then decided to check out the 3D quality of my TV and watched the Lion King in 3D. Unfortunately, about half way through, the movie started to freeze and subsequently 'skipped' quite a bit of the movie before it started to play normally. I didn't know if it was the disc as I watched the movie on my previous LG 47LW5600 (with the PS3 and with no problems with this movie, or any other BR movie BTW).
I then tried a brand new BR disc (LOTR- Twin Towers) and the movie played fine, at first. Sure enough- it started to act up. The movie didn't freeze, but it seemed to be in a 'fast-forward' mode (with no audio). The movie was wide-screen (black bars on top/bottom) so I had to change the format on the TV to get a full screen picture (not sure if this has anything to do with it). Also, I do not have any problems with playing games on my PS3 (and I average about 4 hours/day).
I then plugged my PS3 into my older Panny lcd (1080p/60hz) and had NO problems watching the movie. Which leads me to conclude the issue is with the TV and not my PS3.
I could use some advice as to what possible settings (TV, PS3, or both) that I should try for trouble-free viewing. Thanks!
