I have a PS3 and a Samsung BD player. In using both I notice that usually I am getting 1080P/60 displayed on the screen instead of 1080P/24. I have set the two players to auto 24P playback(I think that is what it's called) but it doesn't seem to work. I'm wondering if:

1. All BD are not 24P? I thought they were.
2. The auto 24P doesn't work like I think it does.
3. On one system, the PS3 one, the signal is routed through a Denon 602 VP. On the other it goes through an AVR. Could either of these processors be blocking the 24P?

Any experience and advice would be appreciated. For all these years I wonder if I have been missing out on the best quality possible.

Movies are generally 24p. TV shows, concerts and such are often 60i.

Getting 24p delivered to your display does depend on proper HDMI handshaking and supporting hardware.

If your TV isn't displaying 24P when your blu ray players are set to 24P I would think your TV isn't on the correct setting. I would check the TV manual.

Most TVs will take a 24p signal and convert to 60p to display. You will have to find out (1) if your TV does support 24p display (usually in multiple of 24Hz) (2) how to enable 24p on your TV.

If a TV does not support 24p signal at all (common in low end TVs), it will tell the player to not send the 24p signal in EDID and the players will do so accordingly.

The tv is a JVC RS40 and it will take a 24p signal.

Well, that being a projector and not a "tv" leaves me with no idea what it will and will not do.

Good luck in your search for an answer.

That tells us absolutely nothing. Like mentioned above, a lot TVs will take 24p but still convert into 60p. Your best bet is post questions here in JVC RS40 owner's thread http://www.avsforum.com/t/1296327/official-jvc-rs40-x3-owners-thread

Fixed the problem with the PS3 to the RS40. The Denon video processor was set to 1080P not to 1080P/24. I thought it was set to "Auto" where it would pick either one based on input signal. But it didn't have an Auto setting.

Will be checking my Samsung BD player the next time I use it to see if the same situation is present.

Your average users needs an "auto" setting option.
