I purchased a Samsung LED TV (UND7000 series) on Black Friday 2011 and even though the Blu ray DVD playback and streaming performance (Netflix, VuDu, Amazon Instant Video etc.) is great, I am noticing some juddering, stuttering when I play standard DVDs. I have tried changing the settings on the TV, turned off auto-motion plus, reduced judder/blur effect settings to zero but I have not been able to eliminate the issue completely. I think it is the result of upscaling. I have Sony Blu ray player that upconverts the standard DVD to HD quality. I think something is happening during that conversion with standard DVDs. So I changed the settings on the Blu ray player and tried playback with 720P and even resolution output settings. Currently, I have the setting that outputs what the input is (so if DVD is 720P, then player doesn't convert and outputs 720p). I still experience juddering/stuttering. What bothers me the most about this is that I had a projection HD TV (JVC H-DILA microdisplay TV) and I didn't experience any juddering or stuttering whether I played Blu ray DVD or Standard DVD. Ok so the picture quality wasn't as fantastic but it didn't have this problem either. It's frustrating to experience this with a higher, upgraded technology :(. I'd like to know if anyone had similar experience and been able to resolve it? :confused:

turn all scaling on the BD player off, so the player outputs 480i / 480p.
