Now that hockey season started, I seem to notice those stutter a lot more frequently, during face-offs and during regular play also.
My personal idea of the problem without having done much research is that since the signal is 60hz and that the TV must interpolate the extra image to achieve 120hz, it creates some stuttering when there is a transition between nearly static image (before face-off) and fast moving action (after face-off).
I figured someone here would know better than me and could help me.
I have precisely the same problem on my new 120 Hz LED HDTV (NOT a 3D TV). There is a noticeable lag or stutter during faceoffs. After the puck is dropped and play gets going, the lag/stutter goes away. I would say this happens for approximately 25% of faceoffs.
The same thing occurs while watcing baseball, while the pitcher is holding the ball prior to making the pitch. Once the pitch is thrown, the lag/stutter disappears.
In both scenarios, the picture is relatively still, quickly followed by fast-moving action.
The TV is connected to my Rogers box, and the problem occurs when connected with both component and HDMI cables.
I have an LG 42LN5700.
