So, over the Thanksgiving holiday I visited my sister who has a new 50" LCD HD TV with the new 240hz scan rate and, especially with movies, I found it unwatchable. My wife had the same reaction. The motion looked all wrong...like some kind of videoy live look. Has anyone else noticed this or am I a little off? Now, college football looked great but dramatic content looked just not right.

It occurs to me that I've watched movies on TV at 60hz with 3:2 pulldown for... a long time.

I'm considering a new big TV. Can you make these new TV's run at 60hz?

Also, what about these 600hz plazmas? Will they give me the same problem?

Thanks!

I don't quite understand how it works, but I hate that 120hz refresh rate for movies -- totally kills the look of the original 24fps film.

As far as I know, the 120hz thing is a setting on the TV, and it can be disabled, so your movies look like... well, movies.
