    All,I realize this is likely a question that has been asked before and I am sure I am just not thinking straight to figure it out. I purchased a new TV with a refresh rate of 120hz and I see currently that the actual refresh rate is 60hz. Why is this?

    Cause 60hz is reality. Everything thing else is BS...

    The onscreen display on your new set is telling you what kind of signal it's getting, not what it's displaying. Nothing is wrong. Try reading the manual.
