Default Blu-ray Dropping Frames

I just got a new 46" Toshiba LCD TV and have been watching Blu-rays on it through my PS3. I noticed that every few minutes some frames will drop making it look like slow motion. At first I thought it was a problem with the TV, but then I realized that it only happens when playing Blu-rays, not for HDTV or PS3 games. Has anyone else encountered this problem with PS3 BD playback? I want to make sure it's not actually a problem with my TV, because I'd like to return it if it is. This was never a problem with my old Vizio LCD TV, but then this new one is 120 Hz which may be a reason the PS3 is having trouble (though the frames still drop when I adjust the settings to 60 Hz).

Neither 60Hz nor 120Hz will do it.

Have you looked for a 3:3 pulldown option? Should be called 24 Hz Cinema Mode, or something along those lines.

I can't find the option anywhere on the TV. Is there any video option I can change on the PS3? I'm trying to determine whether this is a TV or PS3 problem.

The option on the PS3 was set to Auto. I changed it to On and haven't seen any difference in the video. Any other suggestions?
