TV picture questions

I just purchased a new lcd 1080p and when watching movies that are being upconverted the picture is super clear but it looks like you are literally watching the people standing in front of you instead of a movie.

High def cable is being installed today will see if that same problem exist on tv channels. Maybe it is just the fact that it is trying to match the picture look good using the normal dvds.

what he means is movies dont look movies... they look like watching a documentary instead aka the soap opera effect.

i once thought the 120hz was the problem but was wrong. i've learned that the strong majority of 120hz tv have built in motion processors (also called frame interpolation). sony uses motionflow, samsung uses AMP...

what to look for when you're buying a 120hz tv is the ability to do 5:5 pulldown. also look that you can turn off 120hz, better yet look to see if you can disable motion processor like amp and motion flow.

FYI with 10hz units, if you disable motion processing there is no difference in 60hz and 120hz unless you are watching a bluray dvd in 24fps because it can* perform 5:5 pull down. this results a small reduction of "juttering" which you see when a tv perform 3:2 pull down on a 60hz set.
