My video player has a freeze frame and I can advance the image one frame at a time. If the blue is on the frozen frame then it's the source or the player.
As most older video was only 480 lines and seen on much smaller screens the move to big screens and 1080 means we can spot flaws that before were unseen. This can create all sorts of questions like yours.
The move to digital compression inserts a lot of artifacts, and your note about blur around moving objects is sadly a sign of such compression. The idea was that motion can blur but still items must be clear. This blur changed from a pretty soft blur in old 480 line days to often blocky images and again, can upset those that see it for the first time.
I don't know of anyone that has written all this up yet.
Hello everybody. I purchased a new Samsung UN46ES6100F TV a couple of days ago. I upgraded from a nearly 4 year old 40inch Sony Bravia LCD.
The picture quality is so much better for the most part but I've noticed some strange things with it. Sometimes while watching either a movie or a show that's on TV while the camera is moving to follow a persons movement the picture will like skip/stutter a little bit.
Also, I've noticed with some Blu-rays of older films (I haven't watched a newer movie yet) say there is a white/lighter background and a person with dark hair is in the foreground walking by, the area around their head will become sorta fuzzy or blurry looking. I don't know if those are normal glitches with an older film on Blu-ray or what but I never noticed things like that with my old TV.
The menu has so many picture and advanced picture options that it's overwhelming me. I don't really understand what many of them do haha. I've read about buying a calibrating disc but I haven't gotten that far yet. I have already updated to the latest firmware 1025.0 as well.
So, can anybody offer some help? I don't really feel that the TV itself is defective or anything like that. It just seems like it's something to do with all the video options that can be tweaked like auto motionplus , LED motion plus, digital noise filter etc.. Thanks!
