Just got done with a chat with a Samsung support person.
They tell me that most, if not all, TV's, can only accept 60Hz input.
So I don't understand the 3:2 pulldown when using a 60Hz TV versus a 120Hz TV.
Where does the pull-down occur? There seems to be a "garbage in - garbage out" dynamic here.
If the TV can only accept a 60Hz input - isn't the 3:2 done BEFORE my TV gets the input? So if my TV "upconverts" to 120Hz, which it does, if its getting a 3:2 pulldown conversion input - won't that just result in a 6:4 pulldown per second?
Like many of you, I am in search of a practical way of viewing all programing on these new HDTVs, I've gotten most of the tech stuff down, but I am still confused about refresh rates. Can someone let me know if it makes a great difference between a set with a 60Hz refresh rate and one with a 120Hz rate?
