Hi have a new 65" Panasonic TV..

But.. All I see in movies and TV Shows.. is very realistic videos..

So realistic.. it looks like a Movie set, with Joe Smoe doing video recording?

i.e. its too real now? before there was a perception of real?

Does anyone feel same?

Do you have all the "enhancements" turned on, such as motion interpolation? This can cause the "soap opera" effect where everything looks too-smooth.  Try turning off all picture enhancements, reducing the sharpness etc, etc.

Even better if you have access to a "test" disc (DVD/Blu-Ray) and adjust the brightness, contrast etc.

By the way what set do you have?

I think I know what you mean, it's what I notice on new LCD sets - super sharp photo realistic images when fed hi def.

I quite like it, great for sports and general TV watching - but no so much for movies. For movies, LCD just can't quite pull of the cinematic feel of the later model plasmas IMHO.

RIP plasma.

As above, do you have any picture enhancement options turned on, like 200Hz mode or motionflow etc.

Panasonic has had more conservative default picture and motion settings than other brands. Disable overscan and the quality will improve more

Yuck. Why get a TV that can make things not look crap and then disable those features? No such thing as looking too real IMO.

A couple of other options:

Under picture mode, turn sharpness right down.

Also, the preset cinema mode is great for movies in a darker room.

Enjoy, you have one of the best tv's ever invented!

I don't think a cinematic feel to a picture is crap. In fact, I reckon it can't be bettered.

Even though I think new LCD looks great with hi def, it still falls short of the film quality reproduction of plasma.

IMHO ... !

But film looks awful. Covered in noise and a frame rate so now it barely looks like motion.
