Default Soap Opera Effect

So in my quest to update my audio visual gear at home, I took out my good, old plasma and old receiver. I hung a new Samsung 4k smart tv and installed a new receiver with bluetooth, 4k, etc. So far I am very happy with the setup however...

Now I have the dreaded soap opera effect while watching many shows. I have been playing with the settings on the tv and it is driving me nuts to get the best picture. I have researched it on the web but cannot get it right.

Try lowering the dynamic contrast and turn off auto-motion plus. Its the 120Hz or higher refresh rate causing it.

Some TV's have the 24fps feature. I think Sony has it on all or most of their TV's, if you're having issues something tells me you either have to turn it on, don't know if Samsung has that feature. You can also adjust the settings of picture mode to Movie, if it's available as well, to see if that helps.

Btw didn't realize how cheap 4k HDR tv's have gotten over the past year, might plunge into getting one for the bedroom.

I didn't get rid of it, I just replaced my main tv with the new one. You cannot beat the picture on my plasma no doubt about that.

I love mine. I won't be replacing it till it dies. When I do it will probably be with an OLED.

OLED is certainly the future. I'm a little cautious in regards to investing in early HDR formats - if you can afford to wait and let the format war play out, I would. The only people that I can understand chomping at the bit to upgrade right now are people that are capable of taking advantage of a 4k HDR signal.

HDR10 is the market standard at the moment, but Dolby Vision has some exclusive support (looking @ you Vudu) and there are a couple of other new formats (but mostly, if not completely, unused right now) being introduced in some 2017 models this year (the 2017 LG OLED lineup is the main one I've looked at so far).

Oh, I am in no rush to upgrade. From where I sit, approx. 13' away, my calibrated plasma has incredible picture quality and outside of OLED incredible contrast. I really have no need to upgrade until this one conks out or they start offering 4K HDR content over the air.

I am really more of a sound quality guy than a picture quality guy anyways.

My cousin's tv does that and it is annoying for me personally to watch. I thought it was his tv and didn't know it had a name that people called it. Im stil l rocking the 720p LCD as my main tv. I am too cheap to upgrade right now.
