hello...first of all excuse me but english is not my first i am gonna try to explain the problem with the little english i know
i have 3 problems with my LEA46A558P3F model
first i get a lot of screen tearing in ps3 games.i know most of these games have tearing but i think the tearing is much more noticable on this 46 '' this a hardware problem?my previous tv had some tearing too but not that noticable(my previous tv was an polaroid 42 '' with lower constrast etc

Second problem is this :
every time i connect the ps3 on HDMI 3 the audio skips all over the place...any idea why?
on hdmi 1 and hdmi 2 its perfect but on hdmi 3 the audio skips

last problem: when i connect the pc via HDMI i get huge screen tearing on videos which is quite annoying...but when i play those videos via ps3 i dont get any at all

thank you very much for your time i hope someone helps...this is my first samsung and i am kinda dissapointed as a customer

I will try to use easy English.

1. Some tearing may be more noticable if this is your first HDTV. You might try to change the output frames per second on the game console to see if that helps.

2. I don't know why that might happen.

3. Adjust the frames per second to match (or evenly divide) into the refresh rate of the television.

Let me know if that helps.

It is more likely a configuration issue between the signal being sent and the television broadcasting it. The options may be in the game console's menu.
