How to turn off "soap opera effect" on HD material?

Hi,

Can someone please direct me on how to turn off the "soap opera effect" or video feel to hi def material (Blu Ray or HD broadcasts) on the newer 1080p TVs?

I remember reading about it, but can't pinpoint what that setting in the TV's menu is called.

Thanks in advance!

It's the 120Hz or 240Hz processing mode. Each brand name has their own name for it. Which brand is your TV.

It sucks for movies but is great for sports!

Both TVs are 120Hz. One is an LG and the other is a Samsung.

What is the soap opera effect? Suddenly all the actors are bad and the plots become nothing but drama?

Thanks for the replies. I'll go through the menus until I find the appropriate terminology and turn off those suckers!

On the LG push Menu - > Picture -> Advanced -> TruMotion. I feel like I'm playing with that stupid setting constantly. Looks like crap watching the original Planet of the Apes laste night. Made the film jerky every 5 seconds.

does this apply to PLASMAS (panasonic 600 Hz field). I don't have this menu on my Panny HDTV, and since 600 Hz is a multiple of 24, 25, 30, 60, etc I think this is not applicable to these TVs with 600 frames, right?
