Does anyone else see motion glitches on some TV broadcast programming?
I've had my M70-C3 for about three weeks now and while most TV programming looks great (including sports) there is some that causes terrible glitching on my set. (Terrible to my eyes, anyway.)
For example, I watched the last 10 minutes of "The Goldbergs" and the first 10 minutes of "Modern Family" last night on ABC. In both cases, scene changes would frequently causes sub-second "stuttering" (say, for well under a half-second, maybe even less than that) where it seems almost like a slow-motion effect. Again, this is only for a fraction of a second, but it happens almost every time the camera changes position. In some cases, it would also be accompanied by what appeared to be a white flash at the top of the screen, maybe extending down 1/5 or 1/4 or the screen height, though this was more rare. This slow-motion effect and the screen flash are EXTREMELY brief and you wouldn't normally notice it, except it kept happening over and over. Note, however, then when commercials came on, there was no problem. When the program resumed, back to glitching.
Most TV doesn't cause this, just some stations and/or programs it would seem. My Reduce Judder is set at 2 and Reduce Motion Blur is set at 6. Adjusting these settings (even turning them off), however, didn't resolve my issue. Changing from HDMI 5 to HDMI 1 also had no effect.
The Vizio is replacing a 70 inch Sharp LE550 that never exhibited these issues at all. Switching to my Epson 8700UB projector also eliminates the problem.
So, I'm just wondering if anyone else has seen something similar with their Vizio's.
