I tested the video that djnice posted a link to.
I played it on my WDTV Live Hub (which is set to 1080p 60hz) … and even the “Test Pattern” was flickering like crazy.
So i changed the resolution to 1080i 50hz and the flickering on the Test Pattern is now gone.
I can see a very tiny interlace on the “glasses” … but manuallly setting my WDTV resolution to 1080i 50hz
makes it bearly noticable. (note: setting HDMI to “Auto” does not eliminate the flicker)
P.S. Playing the file in VLC with deinterlacing On … i can notice the tiny interlace on the glasses, test pattern is fine.
