I bought a new television recently. I have a 42" VIZIO LED Smart HD TV with 120hz. Because it's a smart TV I can save settings to each individual input. I don't really game with my Playstation 3 unless I'm doing an occasional MGS4 run....so it's mainly a blu-ray player now.

When I bought the TV with 120hz I had blu-ray in mind. See, I work in an electronics store and the 120hz TV's when playing blu-rays have that amazing illusion of 60fps. I know that it's mainly blending frames and predicting where the frame would be, etc...

When i set everything up I watched The Dark Knight Rises on blu-ray, and I didn't get that 60 fps illusion, I was still getting it in 24fps. Is there a setting I have to change to display the 120hz? I've checked the television and I don't see any settings that would be for refresh rate...do I have to change something on the Playstation?

I never used a Vizio TV before, but Sony and Samsung have a setting that's called something like motion enhancer.

It's called Smooth Motion on Vizio T.V.s turn it on.
And now for something completely the same.

Hmmm...so I checked the manual which has the specs listed...it says it doesn't have Smooth Motion...so I guess I can't actually get that effect...that kind of sucks.

Correct. Turn off the Smooth Motion Demo if it's on.

You can't watch anything at 60fps unless its filmed at 60fps.

I know that, however as being discussed a lot of TV's have smooth motion or equivalents that fill in the frames and provide the illusion of 60fps...not once did I say I WANT 60fps...I just want that illusion, it looks good in some instances.
