Novice requires help please

I am sure this has been covered but was unable to find anywhere. I have purchased the Panasonic DMP BD80 player and linked it to my Panasonic TH-42PZ80BA. I am used to simply plugging new components in and getting going (excuse my ignorance!) but when I watch any action films on BD the picture doesn't seem to be able to keep up. If anyone could offer some advice on settings etc to a complete novice I would be grateful. I have no issues watching Sky HD or DVD's with this TV so presume it is the BD settings that need adjusting. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer

Thanks for the response. The audio is fine but the picture seems unable to keep up - fast moving scenes are not displayed anywhere near as well as on my DVD player for example

Is there a sort of judder in the picture? If so, the player's refresh rate might not be set correctly. There should be an option in your player's settings to change this, possibly under resolution.

I found that 50hz gives a judder in fast moving or panning shots, but 60hz or auto gives a steady picture.

I cant seem to find an option allowing me to change the refresh rate.

Under picture I have still mode (auto), seamless play (on) and NTSC contents output (NTSC)

Under connection have TV aspect (16:9 full), component resolution (1080i), TV system (PAL)

Under HDMI connection I have HDMI video mode (On), HDMI video format (auto), 24p output (on), HDMI output range (standard)

Thanks again

Hmmm, from those settings, I can't see what could be causing the picture problems you describe. :(

I'm sure someone more knowledgeable will be able to help shortly, though!

Good luck.
