I was curious what settings people were using for this set. I keep switching between standard and movie.


Interlaced, Progressive or Cinemotion. I cant really tell a big difference between these.


Any help with settings would be appreciated.

I have a 34XBR800 and it has similar options.


I pretty much use Standard and Cinemotion for everything.

I use Pro, because that's the mode that I tweaked in through the user and service menus. I switch between DRC modes depending on what I'm watching. Interlaced for the NTSC from my TiVo, Progressive for my Xbox, Cinemotion for my DVDs.

I thought that Movie was supposed to be the closest.

"Interlaced" DRC mode scales the video to 960i, and "Cinemotion" scales it to 480p. Cinemotion also recognizes 3:2 pulldown, and reverses it, the same way a progressive scan DVD player works. (It kicks in when you're watching something filmed in 24 fps).

...So "Interlaced" is a line-doubler, and "Cinemotion" is a de-interlacer?


I'm confused...


Is there a site/FAQ for these little HDTV technology bits?

What I don't understand is if you are supposed to use progressive or cinemotion settings when using a progressive source such as dvd, why then is DRC switching disabled with the component inputs. Does anyone understand what the reason is for this?

DRC does work on the component inputs. But if you are using a progressive scan DVD player, it doesn't do anything. (The DVD player does the work instead.)
