A lot of people seem to think it has to do with the amount of power driving the display.
PDP's shouldnt flicker by nature but some can
I have noticed that while watching the Spears & Munsil opening it does seem to flicker a bit
I have a Pioneer Elite PRO-111FD and the same images dont flicker on those scenes even with the same PS3 as the bluray player set to 1080p 24
setting it to 48Hz makes it way worse and 60 Hz looks OK and 96Hz looks the same as 60Hz - but I am still waiting on this TV to run through its first 200 hours of use before I calibrate it, I will post back when I do that and give the actual numbers I get from my meters compared to my Elite - I just calibrated my Elite again about 2 weeks ago so I have the numbers from that and its the same as it was 2 years ago save a little red increase
I got my Elite as my first Plasma other then a really old one I paid $10,000 for when they first came out but that was only 480p so it doesent really count, also that stopped working 5 years after I got it having the screen gone so dim you couldnt see anything much - between that Plasma and my Elite I had a Sony Trinitron tube TV with DVI and it accepted 720p and 1080i, it still works great today but its only a 32" - then I started ISF calibration about 5 years ago and thats why I got the Elite after seeing how good it is in a few customers houses and other calibrators telling me it was better then some $25,000+ medical imaging displays they have seen and tested
after seeing it and calibrating it my self I have yet to see a display that even comes close including these VT30's - check reviews (and my old post from a few days ago with a link in it to a review), most all of them still use the Elite as the reference display and most all say its still the best there is - its just stupid IMO that nothing better has come alone in 2+ years! things like that are simply unheard of in the world of consumer electronics
