Whats wrong with my new 60" TV?

Holysmoke 3,114 463 August 10, 2016 at 07:06 PM
I have a 50" Toshiba in the living room with a normal picture (to me and family) using dish network and OTA.

I have a 60" Sammy UN60J6200 60-Inch 1080p Smart LED TV (2015 Model) using Fire TV box.

Watching netflix, amazon prime or KODI, all videos seem strange. I didn't know how to describe it and thought it was just my perception but my 15 year old came in and said the picture is strange, almost seems sped up. I am using video presets for "MOVIES"

This same fire tv box looks normal on the 50" Toshiba.

Is there something about the newer LED's that I need to adjust? does it have to do with Motion Rate: Motion Rate 120

Motion Rate 120 Delivers Seamless Motion

The J6200 LED Smart TV features a Motion Rate of 120 to ensure your TV keeps up with the action on-screen. With its outstanding refresh rate, processing speed and backlighting technology, the J6200 Smart TV delivers a seamless moving image that renders fast action sequences easily.
any help appreciated.

I have to think it's something with the refresh rate, motion processing, etc. You should be able to make some changes in the settings. While I don't have the problem myself I have been to Friends houses an noticed the exact same thing. Everything was way faster than I expected.

Yeah, it is the motion enhancement feature on the Samsung. Under your Video settings you should find something regarding motion that can be turned off. That should immediately make the picture "feel" normal.

I turned off "Auto Motion Plus" and it looks like TV has looked the last 4 decades of my life.

huge relief as that was seriously annoying.

What you experienced is colloquially called 'soap opera effect'. Some people like it. most people HAAATTEEE it (myself included).

Sounds right. I recently had to go and kill it myself. Makes everything look rather cartoony and unreal to me since the majority of the frames you see are invented by the TV itself to try and blend things together.

It delays what you see (which is annoying) and bothers the crap out of me.

They want to justify all those Hz. Otherwise, someone will watch a DVD at 24 fps and not have to deal with all the frame love. There is no content to speak of at 120 Hz let alone 240. Interpolation is the only purpose at this point.

Can BD discs give rates that high?

Looks like Ultra HD will only support 4K @ 60 fps.
