Well, I'm not saying you are wrong, but it all depends on how you interpret the logo on the front cover and the one line that is in the manual. I can see how you interpret it to mean that it turns 120Hz on/off, but I can also see how one could interpret it otherwise.
I'm not saying that it is impossible that turning ME off also reverts the set to 60Hz, I'm just saying that it would not make much sense for Sony to do that. If that is the case, then you could not get real 24p playback without ME turned on, and one would think that the TV's on-screen display would show 1080p instead of 1080p/24p. With the set at 60Hz, you would have to do a 3:2 pulldown. It is possible that this is what they do, but it doesn't make a lot of sense.
The other thing that doesn't make sense to me is why ME would have two settings if it is an ON/OFF type thing. I guess turning it to anything other than OFF could turn 120Hz on, and the difference between STANDARD and HIGH could be in how it does frame interpolation.
I have racked my brain for a way that we could test to tell when 120Hz was on/off and if the set is doing frame interpolation when it is on. Any ideas?
Maybe someone else will take the time to call Sony and try to get another tech with another opinion?
Edit: Just saw StrawDawgs post... so yeah, what he said
I interpret the logo and one liner in the manual to mean what he has described, that MotionFlow is the frame interpolation/processsing, not necessarily 120Hz capability.
