42pfl6008s

Hi,

 

I've just bought the above TV and am quite happy with it.

 

The only thing I've noticed is that on freeview SD&HD occasionally I get a rippling effect on fast moving objects. I haven't tried a blu-ray yet  but wondered if I've there are some settings I need to tweak. I'm not very techie so any help is appreciated.

 

Thanks

Sounds like motion artefacts. Set all motion processing to off & let us know if things improve.

I turned ' natural motion perfect' off but that made the picture worse (not smooth at all.)

I'm now trying 'noise reduction' off. Not sure if that's a good idea though?

Yes, first turn off all artificial processing. That's the usual advice.

I'm wondering if it's a bitrate thing....... definetly more prevalent in SD. I'll watch a blu-ray and see whether I get the same issue.

I'd estimate 'Pixel Plus' to be the culprit.

I think you're right. The what HiFi review said they got the best performance with the setting though. Maybe they weren't talking about terrestrial transmissions though?

Sorted.

 

It turned out to be 'Clear LCD' option. No idea what it was supposed to be doing!?!?

Here's our review: Philips 42PFL6008

And you're right,  there are (as often the case with Philips TVs), a lot of picture settings to work your way through...
