Default Question about Samsung 6100 - 1080P TV showing 1280 x 720

Today I bought a 40" Samsung LED Series 6 6100 TV which is 1080p but when I hit info on my remote it says 1280 x 720 60p
Why would it say that for one thing and what would cause it to say 1280...is it HDMI cables ? Is it something I did wrong ?
Dont get me wrong the Blu Ray movies look amazing on this set but just wondering what the deal is on the 1280 x 720.
Also what do you guys recommend for contrast brightness and picture (Standard,Movie, Dynamic etc)

That's just what the source is out putting. In other words, the tv is receiving a 720p signal. If this is happening with blu-rays, then you have the blu-ray player set up to 720p. Go into the blu-ray players settings, make sure you have 1080p checked, and all lower resolutions too. With cable, you have to set the box up for what resolution you want output. You can select 720p, 1080i, 1080p, and native. Some channels are 720p and some 1080i, so native will change it back and forth, and let your tv do the upscaling. At 1080p, the cable box will do the upscaling. I don't believe any channels are 1080p however.

You tv will always display 1080p, even when it receives 480i. 1080p lcd, ledlcd, and plasma tvs can't display anything but 1080p, they are fixed pixel displays. They upscale everything to 1080p, of course however, 480i upscaled to 1080p will look like rubbish compared a native 1080p source.

Cool, I have another question, since I have watched a few DVDs and Blu Rays. I have noticed something that occurs on and off when I watch some movies, is the movements of people, there is this blip with some kind of combing I think its called...It is like if a person moves from left to right, somewhere along the way there will be this *twitch* or blip. I dont know what to call it but I notice it. Is there a way to fix that ? It has only happened on this set

It sounds like it's either judder or the auto-motion plus (AMP). Does the motion look unnaturally smooth, cartoonish, like a soap opera? If you have AMP on, try turning it off. I believe it will be under "Picture Options". Might be under "Advanced Settings". Should have several settings. My Samsung lcd is old, an A series, so it only has "off, low, medium, high". Some newer models have more options, but turn it completely off.

Another problem could simply be judder. If your watching blu-rays at 1080p/60fps (your tv might show it as receiving 1080p/60Hz in the top left corner), then you might see judder. Dvds can not be shown it their original frame rate of 24fps, and will only be shown at 60ps. Since 24 doesn't fit evenly into 60, there will be some unevenness, such as a 3:2 pull down (some frames get shown 3 times, some two times, since 24 fits into 60hz 2.5 times).

Your tv is 120hz. 24fps will fit into that evenly (with a 120hz, 5:5pulldown, 24 fits into 120 5 times evenly).

So in your blu-ray players option, select to show it at 24fps, it might have it listed as 24hz. That should help any judder problems, atleast with blu-rays.

These are your two likeliest problems, so either turn AMP off, or set your blu-ray to output 1080p24fps. Could always do booth.

Thank you. I did chat with a Samsung Rep and seemed to have it fixed now.
I went with SMOOTH on the AMP and it worked, thank god, if it didnt turning it off was all I could do. What a relief
