Blu Ray playback judder

Hello folks!

Creepingly moving with the times I finally got myself a PS3 to go with my plasma.

Blu Ray playback is very impressive picture wise, except for quite a bit of image judder on even the smallest of camera moves and character movement.

Now, I'm still on an old Panny PX60 37" while I try to get hold of a second hand Pioneer - this is only 1080i compatible. I'd expect a certain amount of judder on big camera tracks, but is this semi-constant judder a result of the lack of proper 1080p, or simply poor processing on the part of the TV? It's pretty irritating.

Cheers!

James

Most Blu-Ray discs are encoded at 24p and this is optimum output frequency if your display properly supports it. Your PS3 will output 24p Blu-Ray movies at 60hz using a process called 2:3 pulldown. This process uses unequal 2:3 frame repeat that causes judder on motion that is especially noticeable on panning shots.

I get the same effect on my 42PX700.

What MAX1210 just said is also explained with graphics on the Disney WOW disc (Helped me get my head round it).

You can select 24p on the ps3 which ensures it outputs 24p correctly, I don't get any judder with my ps3

Thanks, yes I know, but not with the OP's TV (or mine) as it does not accept a 24p signal :( If I'd waited for an 80/800 series one then it would've done :rolleyes:

Cheers folks. I suspected it was the TV compatibility, but would rather check first!

Now, who wants to sell me a 5090 or a KRP?
