Have owned my 65E6P since mid-Jan. Thoroughly enjoying it... except when watching a number of programs on satellite. I wish I had the option to follow RoadLizard's counsel below but I'm on Bell TV here in Canada and my PVR (DVR) only allows 1080i or 720p output (I have mine set at 1080i).

I'm not expert on these matters so I try to read these threads and educate myself as much as I can. Best way I can explain the issue is as follows: in fast-paced scenes, i.e., during Platoon, at the end, Sheen's character is about to board a helicopter that is waiting for him to leave. As the blades are spinning in the air, there is a high-degree of artifacting (hoping this is the right word), noise, etc. In laymen's terms, it looks like the video is tearing/ripping within the blades. I realize that my satellite signal is overly-compressed and I am chalking this up to a terrible signal on a terribly great TV!
That said, I am wondering how best to mitigate/resolve this issue. I have tried some of the recommended TruMotion/User/DJ & DB settings. Still searching for the best ratio here (RoadLizard, I have been following a number of your tips along the way).
I am wondering if anyone has had any success with resolving a situation like mine in this regard?
Has anyone had success with (or recommend) increasing the Noise Reduction and/or MPEG Noise reduction settings?
Even if I can't fully resolve what appears to be tearing/ripping in fast-paced scenes (which, for example, can also include an arm/hand that is waving fast), I would like to try to minimize this effect.
I don't think anything is wrong with my TV; I don't observe any of this effect on 1080p/4K Blu-ray and I don't observe the problem when streaming Amazon, Netflix, etc. It appears to be my horribly compressed satellite signal.
Thx in advance for any tips/suggestions.
