      Occasional 'Soap Opera Effect' on HDTV

      Every so often when watching TV via Sky Q, the screen will go into a 'soap opera effect' motion. Only for 5 - 15 seconds, then it goes back to normal.

      It's a new TV - Philips 43PU6262 4K. I have it set to 'game mode' too.

      Could it be to do with 1080i/1080p? Don't seem to get this when playing Xbox.

      Thanks

      Turn off game mode, as this adds processing to the picture and degrades the PQ..

      Really? I thought that was the best setting to use?

      Not when watching just tv, game mode is really for what the name suggests https://www.cnet.com/news/what-is-game-mode/
