    Hello.

    I bought my Sony KDL-32W705B one year ago and then I started to read that it has a 50 Hz panel (200 Hz Motionflow XR).

    The thing is, is every 50 Hz panel 60 Hz too?

    Or will I be losing 10 fps when I play 60 fps games on a 50 Hz panel.

    Some people say that every TV is 50/60 Hz panel since 2009, but I don't know what to think.

    Greetings.

    Your Display will accept a range of Input signals (60Hz, 50Hz, 24p...) - how it then chooses to 'display' those signals on the pixel array can be a bit tricky to confirm and may alter depending on what Modes you enable on the TV for a given Input signal.

    Confirm in the TV manual what signals it supports via its various Inputs and what Modes it offers for any given Input - most TV's offer a 'Game' mode which will usually minimise re-processing by the TV.

    According to Sony's own specs it supports [email protected] output.

    The days of 50hz PAL and gaming are well over, pretty much everything games wise defaults to a 60Hz output and PAL is only used by broadcast TV and things like Blu-ray/DVD.

    The 200Hz motionflow stuff is not used for game mode or if using a PC connected to the display.

    So your fine there is nothing to worry about, 60Hz output is supported and is the norm these days.

    PAL isn’t used by anything any more. 50Hz is used by TV broadcasts. DVD and Blu-ray uses 24Hz for movies on most players from the last decade.
