HDMI 1 and 2 outputs the same resolution and audio stream but I can choose to tap of BluRay from HDMI2 bypassing the Marvel chip?
No. The player is not capable of outputting 2 different distinct resolutions (aside from "Source Direct")
The 1080p/24 setting is to determine the frame rate of 24p vs 60p, but does not override the resolution output setting.
If you have the resolution set to 720p, then all sources will be converted to, and output at, 720p.
Likewise would be true with whatever other resolution output you choose.
You do also have the option of "Source Direct", which will keep the original resolution and frame rate of the video source.
So for DVDs that would be 480i/60, and for most Blu-ray, 1080p/24... and they would be output at those resolutions.
Even another option is the AUTO setting, and that setting SHOULD send out the maximum resolution that
your connected display can handle. So if your display can handle 1080p, then the AUTO setting should send out 1080p.
However, it seems odd that if you have a display capable of handling the 1080p resolution of Blu-ray,
why would you want DVDs to be scaled to only 720p?? Why not scale it to 1080p?
On the flip side of that, if your display can only handle 720p, then you would want to send out all sources converted to that resolution.
The BDP-93 has very good upscaling and deinterlacing capabilities.
However, if you think you have a better scaler downstream, then again the option of source direct might be better.
