    He's correct in a lot of new HDTV sets come home set to the default high frame refresh rate settings. This is the amount of times the screen refreshes it self per second. Which will make sporting great, but movies look poor and kind of like it was shot of an old video camera. Good article here:

    Video smoothing is horrible...no one wants to watch a movie with the "soap opera effect" on. Tom is spot on in this case.

    Mine has been off for 3 years, ever since I first got my plasma tv and set it up. :D

    "The Soap Opera Effect" a good turn of phrase!

    I would really like to see the ball come off the bat better when watching baseball. Ever since things went digital it has been hit or miss (so to speak) to be able to track the ball after the bat hits it, IMHO. It is the standard center field camera angle where the ball disappears after the bat hits it. Can't tell if the batter swung and missed or if he hit a home run in some cases. Am I alone on this? Don't care that much about Tom Cruise, but I would like sports to appear better on TV. Especially this particular thing.

    Oh dear, sounds like this is yet another problem I didn't know was a problem that I now have to worry about. :(

    Are UK TVs even the same as US TVs? They used to work on two completely different systems, PAL and NTSC.

    This is why I posted the article in the first place. I was hoping that people would come up with answers, not questions!

    I have no idea how to adjust any of this stuff on my TV.

    Having read a couple of article, I sort of understand the mechanics, but my last TVs controls ran to tuners and volume on the front and vertical hold round the back...

    No longer a thing with hd. Good riddance too, now video games don’t get letterboxed and run slowly!

    HD TVs do all kinds of nonsense that most people don’t notice. My mum’s tv has the soap opera effect, and about 500ms of input lag when playing games.
