Samsung

Question

Will a faster HDMI cable be required?

by JudgeDredd04 / March 4, 2013 3:25 AM PST

I recently got a hold of a 46inch LED Samsung (6000 series) and it is unable to cope with my xbox 360. The pixels jutter quite frequently when playing games such as far cry 3, battlefield 3 and halo 4. I know for a fact that the motion plus settings are making very little difference (smooth is the best setting but still a large amount of jutter). And I noticed that the hdmi cable I was using was only a 6. Something Gbps, so I bought a 10.2 Gbps and though it may have improved it vastly, the jutter is still frequent in the upper half of the tv. my question is, would upgrading to a 15.8 Gbps hdmi cable make any difference or am I stuck with a Tv that cannot cope with the frame rate? I'd also like to know if other people are having similar problems and how they dealt with it.

But most gamers turn off all motion processing. I can't tell if you tried that as the formatting of your post is a single paragraph (hard to read.)

There's also some issues with some Xbox's and that problem description.

In short, motion processing off and game mode on.

I have turned off the motion plus and all jutter has disappeared. however, it doesn't look as nice as when the motion plus was working. Do you know of any tv's in the Samsung range that may have a higher hertz ratio preferably 800, in the older models that aren't over £800?
