Hey king Richard seems like we were having the same issues with audio drop outs while viewing Xfinity cable, this is happening with surround sound and just the TV speaker, and only on cable. Any solutions yet? I have taken the last 2 weeks and have tried a little mix of everybody's info and I'm just about set on this panel. One thing I haven't quite nailed yet is "motion" I've always been a big fan of always having this off because I don't care for the SOE effect. In most cases AMP off is the best, there is zero problems with Blu rays, uhds and streaming Netflix, but cable is so hit or miss, NBC has virtually no judder, but other channels can be horrible. Another thing that has made a HUGE difference is setting the sharpness to 0.......I haven't been a big fan of this on other sets but it seems to do this TV wonders, on all sources! We are now in standard mode with everybody's settings maybe tweaked just a tad and it's beautiful! Thanks for all the help guys!!
