Samsung PS50A558 - terrible judder - HELP!

by JimmyJBreeze / October 14, 2009 11:41 PM PDT

I bought a Samsung PS50A558 at Christmas time last year. When I first got the television it suffered from bad juddering whilst watching movies or playing games on my Xbox 360 (connected to the TV with HDMI). After tinkering with the settings I managed to reduce the juddering to a bearable level and got to the point where I barely noticed it.

However, after the recent digital retune required in the UK the problems have returned and are as bad as ever! I think that I have all the settings exactly as they were before, but for some reason I am experiencing terrible judder. Last night I was playing FIFA10 for the first time on the Xbox 360 and it completely ruined the experience for me.

Ant tips at all on adjustments that I can make to the settings would be greatly appreciated, as at the moment I am very much regretting purchasing a Samsung TV.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
