tearing on SD video playback

I am getting tearing on all standard definition content seemingly unrelated to playback software used. DVD rip playback through VSO, Windows Media Player, and XBMC all present tearing. Standard definition live and DVR'd content playback through Windows Media Center also shows tearing.

The system is an i3 3225 on a Gigabyte P 67 board. the display is a Samsung 6000 Series led. the connection is HDMI and the problem persists weather or not the display is set to "pc input" so it doesn't seem to be in overscan or scaling issue.

all HD playback is fine.

any ideas? thanks guys

what is the SD content your are using? Do all of them maybe share the same encoding format? It could be a driver problem, maybe check the drivers of your graphics card.

Have you tried VLC? It's the only one that uses built in codecs. All other media playing software uses the codecs that are installed on your system, so it could also be a codec problem.
