Live play? Actually there? Sounds like the motion enhancement stuff...
That's quite possible. I recently, finally, upgraded to a HDTV and the first thing I did was disable this "feature." I then found some DVDs that looked horrible (grainy, noisy, etc.), which was surprising as they were "newer" TV programs, made in the "digital age" (one was Chuck
), I would have thought would look very good, even on DVD. So... I turned that "feature" back on and watched again. Wow... surprise! It made those programs look "good" again. So I now turn it on depending on if I feel the source could possibly benefit from it being on. But I also turn it off once that DVD/movie has finished so it doesn't "ruin" others which do not need it.
