I'm not sure how this is a big win. No one with a CRT is going to want 24 Hz. Too much flicker. So, you are going to need a processor to get what you want from either 1080p24 or 60 or 1080i60, so having 24 is of no use to us.
I'm not sure who "us" is, unless you mean CRT owners? It would be a big win for "us" (digital projector owners that can scale 24hz to 48, 72 or 96hz) to remove the judder that 60hz introduces to film-based material. I'd swap out my HD-DVD player for one that outputs 24fps in an instant.
Back in November, John commented:
> I would like 1080P47.952 mode in this player to use with my G90 PJ to have clean travelings (no-judder) I'm currently studying the Toshiba firmware structure to see if I can re-program the 1080i ->1080p IVTC+scaler to enable this useful mode <<br />
Just curious if you ever made any headway on this?
