- I'm coming from a WD TV and never used the motion smoother (or soap opera effect). It is "off" in my tv settings. But now with the mede8er, I notice a slight soap opera effect. Is this how 24p enabled looks? I guess my old WD TV did not support 24p. My picture settings are HDMI auto, 24hz on and Auto Frame Rate on. Or could it be my AVR (Pioneer 1121)? I did not change any AVR settings.
Ok... maybe I've answered my 24p question by doing a bit of research. I have a Panasonic plasma ST30.
Here are two excerpts I've found over other threads/forums:
- "The only thing I can think of is when feeding the ST50 (or any 2011/2012 Panny) a 24p source with your Panny set to 60Hz, there's some subtle motion smoothing. To remedy this, you'll need to set your player to output 60Hz. If you read through THIS (http://www.**************.com/showthread.php?11035-Panasonic-VT30-series-96Hz-processing-for-24p-Blu-ray#.UAHlbfXtLeA
) thread, you'll see a few people notice it (including myself on my ST50). If that's what they were referring to, it's very subtle and it is removable. Not sure if the EUR models are any different."
- "To my eyes, the 24p 60Hz mode on the GT30 [similar to ST30] looks artificially smooth, as if frame interpolation is being used. No one has provided official confirmation of that theory though. For me, disabling 24p at the source results in an enjoyable film like picture. Just to reconfirm my thoughts on this, 10 minutes ago I looked at Dark Night with 24p enabled and then disabled. It looked "off" and distractingly smooth when in 24p. When 24p was disabled (on the PS3) it looked like a movie should look again."
So I might just disable the 1080p 24HZ function on the Mede8er (and perhaps play with the TV System setting) to remove the slight soap opera effect that I have detected. Will try this tomorrow.
