    I just bought a sony kdl-40xbr6 tv. it's a bravia model, and plugged into a cable box with a component hookup (I don't have a newer cable box with hdmi, yet). I've noticed that in some movies, it seems like the tv is in fast-forward. literally, like the scenes speed up. I can't seem to find much info on this. anyone have any idea what this could be. This is my first lcd tv, please be gentle.

    That is the shitty motion engine on any lcd. Good settings for that tv are as follows. You have to turn any motion options off. Try these settings...should make picture better.

    Put it in standard mode.
    Backlight = 4
    Contrast stays where it is
    Color Temperature = warm 2
    Color = drop down a few points to around 46 or so
    Turn noise reductions on low
    motion enhancer = off
    cinemotion = off
    Black Corrector: low or off
    Advanced C.E.: Off
    Gamma: Low or off
    Clear White: Off
    Color Space: Standard

    TURN OFF 120MHz or 240MHz refresh. This is my biggest complaint about TV manufacturers: "Watch football in crisp 240MHz"

    You can't. The game is either in 720P or 1080i - period. ATSC doesn't, and won't broadcast at 1080P. Most movies were filmed at 24FPS (frames per second) on purpose. Motion blur makes things look smooth (120MHz removes it, and therefore it looks like it's in fast forward).
