Samsung LN40B750. Pic. settings for watching sports and AMP?

by mss4481 / July 9, 2009 9:00 AM PDT

I recently bought this tv and it's awesome. I am looking for some good settings to try. Here is the situation, I almost always have the curtains drawn and am watching tv in a darker environment. I am a huge baseball/hockey fan and also watch alot of reality/documentaries (Deadliest Catch, History Channel) type programs and would be thrilled if you have any suggestions that may enhance my viewing experience watching them.

I'm also confused about the Auto Motion Plus specifically for sports. I've heard it is supposed to be great for them. When I have it on it seems like the motion is choppy and not smooth like it says it should be, almost like when you hit slo-mo, but not quite to that extreme. This seems to happen alot when they first get back to live game action after a replay when I have been watching baseball. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

mss4481,

Thanks for the kind words.

There may be some settings on the Settings forum. C|Net has a forum dedicated to television settings, and that can be found here:

AutoMotion Plus is the processing inside of the television. Any signal that comes in is upconverted to 1080p and 120Hz on your television. To enhance the picture quality, AutoMotion Plus is a toggle function that allows you to adjust how the picture is processed. On most inpust, some processing improves the picture.

In some cases, it doesn't, and the option is there to defeat the feature.

If the motion is choppy, try changing the AutoMotion Plus settings to Low and see if that level of processing improves.

Keep me posted.

Samsung HD Tech,

Thanks for the very quick reply to my question. I think I may have fixed the problem. I had been using the settings from the picture form and it had the automotion settings on custom with blur set at 10 and judder set at 0. I have been trying them at standard or smooth (which I think is equal to high) and it seems to be alot less noticeable. The only thing I'm somewhat confused on is does my tv automatically upconvert the image to 1080p and 240Hz(it says my tv has 240HZ so I assume it's sposed to be 240 and not 120) regardless if I have Automotion Plus turned on to some degree? or does my tv only upconvert the image to 1080p and 240HZ when I have the automotion plus feature on? Thanks Again.

mss4481,

Happy to help.

You are correct that it will be 240Hz and not 120Hz if the panel's specifications are 240Hz. I overlooked that - sorry about that. Happy

It will always upconvert to 240hz in your case, regardless of the AutoMotion Plus processing, and if you like, that *processing* (after the upconvert) can be turned off, but the actual upconversion is a mandatory process in itself that you can't toggle.

Hope that helps.
