When my B7 arrived most picture modes had TruMotion set to either Clear or Smooth. Are you sure that you have turned TruMotion Off for ALL picture modes ?
I'm no expert, but personally despise the SOE. I think the consensus isn't that it can't be corrected; it's that you either have a bit of the SOE or some judder. There doesn't seem to be a perfect setting for all material. For those of us coming from nice plasma or LCD sets, it's been a somewhat disappointing experience.
I find that De-Blur has to be all the way off to avoid the SOE, and De-Judder needs to be somewhere in the 2-3 range. Even there, certain pan speeds of video material (like Netflix shows) have pretty awful judder artifacts. 24p material from my disc library looks great with everything off (i.e. User and 0, 0), or De-Judder no higher than 2 IMHO.
Also, as Alex says, it has to be adjusted/turned off for each picture mode. I remember my first DV UHD disc - I couldn't believe how awful the SOE was until I realized that I needed to adjust these settings as well. I ended up watching the first five minutes all over again...
My wife, btw, actually likes the SOE
I showed her the difference a few weeks ago and she gets it now, so there's there's hope for her, yet.
