UN55H8000 blurry people in med/long shots; shows/football

When people/objects are in medium to long shots from the camera, the people/objects are very blurry/shiny/grainy. Very bad resolution, to say the least. Examples: the normal 'booth view' of a football play from scrimmage; Guests on a panel show who are farther from the camera than other guests in the same shot; the 'file footage' being shown on a tv show, such as the news or other entertainment shows. Close-up shots are fine, spectacular in most cases.

HBO, Showtime, and some other channels are FANTASTIC. The best picture I've ever had. Yet, when it comes to other programs as described above, it is VERY poor, especially for a 2K price. I tried turning the Auto Motion Plus off and it was slightly better, but still not close to acceptable. Blur reduction, etc., same non-result.

If anyone has solutions to this, I'm all ears. If I can't get it right I'm going to reluctantly send it back because it's unacceptable. Thanks. - Phil
