    From here

    I turned off the "Auto Motion Plus" feature and all my issues are solved.

    You should be able to find settings listed for this set to do some proper calibration in addition to disabling (or at least setting to the lowest level) any "enhancements".

    Typically with all motion smoothing schemes the end result is the picture looks like it was videotaped (even for film); the so-called soap-opera effect. It may be OK for sports (not sure about gaming) but I absolutely hate it for film. Stayed at a hotel a little while back and the TV in the room had motion enhancements turned on, with no way (that I could figure out) to access the menu to turn it off.

    Another possibility from a Facebook thread:

    I have a KS8000 and have also been suffering awful motion blur/ghosting especially in dark scenes but I managed to eliminate most of the issue by turning off "Digital Clean View" in the picture settings

    Again, any digital manipulation of the picture usually leads to a worse picture.

    Yup I have all those turned off. It's not really motion blur that's the issue, it's an image duplication that is apparently present on all TVs that use backlight flickering. My eyes are also more sensitive to this sort of thing as I have had laser surgery and lights sometimes have a halo around them. Plasma was great for this. Apparently most Sony 4K tvs don't use flickering so I may look into those.

    This isn't a big deal or anything but it's hard getting used to it after watching on a plasma for so long. That's why I think I'll take the plunge and get OLED

    Last time I bought a Sony I thought I was getting something that wasn't a piece of shiznit. Boy, was I wrong. StickmanDancing

    I'm in the market for a new TV. Wife thinks the 55"we bought 4-5 years ago is too big to hang above the fireplace. I figure if I get a new set it should be 4k, but not too many in the sub 55" size. Since I mostly watch the set on the bedroom anyway (kids rule the family room) maybe I should see if someone on Kijiji has a 50"they think it's too small and do a swap.

    At the same time I find the upstairs TV is too small (aging eyes and all). Wonder what my chances are at convincing her that 55"in the bedroom is a good idea. Hey-o!

    I was actually checking out a 50 or 49" Sony. Read somewhere that Sony TVs over 50" all run the Android TV OS. Does that mean that the one I was looking at didn't have it? Guy at the store couldn't find the right remote.
