I say it's less the hdmi cable and more of a settings issue. Adjust your auto motion. Alot of people use Blur 10 and Judder 2. Some channels/shows don't like auto motion and you may either have to turn if off or turn it further down. Auto motion is still very new. If you have tried the channels with auto motion off and the problem still is there, it's either the channel has a problem,the box your using or the tv. My money would be on the auto motion or the channel.
I am not that much of a tech guy. Accordingly, my description may be a bit vague.
We set up our new Samsung 55" LED 240 1080p 3D tv yesterday. We didn't realize we needed a new HDMI cord, so we could not turn it on while the install guys were there. After buying a new cord, we sat down to watch Lost (HD channel version) off of our DVR.
At first everything looked great. After a minute, the picture began to jump every few seconds. The sound was fine, but the picture would seem to jump. I can't tell if it is 'falling behind' and then jumping to catch up or pausing for a quarter second and then jumping. Regardless, the jumping was there on the DVR version of Lost as well as on live versions of NBC and CBS HDTV shows.
After a little sleuthing on the internet it seems to me like it could be a cord issue (bad HDMI cord). Am I right about that? If so, is there anything I need to know about buying the right cable?
If we replace the cable and it isn't the cable, what else might it be? Thanks in advance.
