Samsung LED UN55B7100: Blurring even during non-motion

Recently purchased this LED TV and have noticed blurring on satellite HD channels...really only movies/movie channels and it's most noticeable on faces even when there is little to no on screen motion. If you look at the person's face, you can see it flip back and forth between blurring and clear. It happens constantly very rapidly, almost like a constant flicker. If you stand far enough away it's not noticeable, but it is apparent from our seats and worse on certain shows/channels. Can anyone help me understand what I am seeing and if there is anything I can do about it? Thanks.

CuldeMac,

On Page 19 of the owner's manual, the AutoMotion Plus processing offers an option in the "Custom" setting to adjust Blur and Judder. Try adjusting those settings to see if the picture quality improves.

If it happens intermittently, then it may be the signal coming from the cable/sat box, and in many cases, a reset or updating the firmware in the box can fix the issue (and this option can be done by calling your cable/sat company, and they can usually do it over the phone).

Keep me posted.
