LAG when watching TV

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I am not sure if I will manage to explain my issue properly, but in December 2011, I purchased a 120hz Smart LED HDTV. Ever since I've bought it, I noticed some sort of lag when watching hockey. At first it was just when there were faceoffs where the image would stutter, but it was not always very noticeable. Now that hockey season started, I seem to notice those stutter a lot more frequently, during face-offs and during regular play also.

My personal idea of the problem without having done much research is that since the signal is 60hz and that the TV must interpolate the extra image to achieve 120hz, it creates some stuttering when there is a transition between nearly static image (before face-off) and fast moving action (after face-off).

I figured someone here would know better than me and could help me. If you need some extra information, I'll try to monitor this thread a lot.
Thanks

The lag could be caused by any number of features, including the motion stuff. Just turn off the bells and whistles one at a time until you see the issue resolved and re-enable any you still want that didn't cause the problem.

I find that for 99% of what I watch, I _really_ dislike interpolated frames. Blu-rays easily look best in their native 24fps and most other content usually at 60fps with a few exceptions.
