ive recently purchased a Q90T. I came from a 2015 Samsung which had no frame rate issues at all.
The Q90T is great in every way apart from when watching Freesat or Now TV. Both of these broadcast in 50hz/50p. So I assume it’s something to do with this frame rate.
what happens is that when there is a small amount of motion on screen such as an interview or no panning etc then the screen shows something similar to the frame rate dropping in half and everything stuttering. Once motion picks up or shot pans around then it goes back to normal.
I had all picture clarity settings set to off but I then played around with settings such as judder reduction and blur reduction etc to see if I could eliminate the stutter but nothing works.
its really bad watching football on free sat or now tv as it’s stutters quite a lot.
weirdly, not all programmes stutter. I’ve watched some catch up tv on now tv as well as movies and these show perfectly without any stuttering and all content on Netflix etc are all fine as well.
I am on the latest firmware.
any ideas if this is common or if there is a fix as nothing I’ve tried works.
Am I the only one who is having blurring issues on Netflix and Disney or streaming 4k files? Especially on panning shots. Can anyone advise where the sweet spot is for the blur or judder settings for Disney? Disable everything? I have been reading about soap opera effect, I am just not certain how to avoid it.
To be honest I can't see it. In general new firmware is available in the US (1462.1) so hopefully we in the EU will receive it soon so we could hope that at least some issues are fixed.
My STB is android and has OTT like Netflix, prime video, etc...
The TV channels are excellent with pic clarity OFF and auto and also custom setting. but youtube and prime video have very mild shutter/judeer. So I am not using OOT through the android set top box.
I am happy after the factory reset. Most of the videos are fine. Only few action scenes and sports have very mild issues and I can live with that. (Also, note that I am not a gamer).
I am very much sensitive to the picture issue.
One thing I also want to add here. Previously I was watching in a 22 inch LG (50hz, 10 years old ) TV with 10 ft distance, there also shutter/judder in OTT. But I did not notice. Now the picture quality is excellent in the 55 inches 4K QLED and I watch from 10 ft. This may be a reason why a very mild shutter/judder is noticeable.
