What TV will accept 1080p @ 120 HZ signal over HDMI?

I want to hook a computer up to a TV via HDMI. Are there any TVs that will accept 1080p @ 120 HZ over HDMI? If not then what about 1080p @ 60 HZ?

The reason that I want to do 120 HZ is that both 60 FPS and 24 FPS are evenly divisible into 120 FPS. I don't want to have to switch refresh rates depending on what content is displaying.

I plan on capturing 1080p @ 24 FPS and 1080p @ 60 FPS video with the upcoming Panasonic Digital Cameras.

What is generally regarded as the best TV for HTPC output right now?

I am note aware of any since the HDMI 1.4 interface does not support the bandwith require.

Actually the HDMI spec has plenty of bandwidth to support 120hz....

Its more of a TV compatibility thing...

120*1920*1080*24 = 5.5555 gbps. Almost all HDMI cables and some HDMI transceiver ASICS are rated higher than this.

In fact there are TVS in the market place right now that accept 120hz... kind of... .they are 3D TVS... they accept two streams of 60hz simultaneously for the left and right eyes.... so thats empirical evidence to show its not andHDMI issue.

However, based on what problem you are trying to solve... the even frame division issue... you do not need a TV that can accept 120 HZ signals.

You just need to purchase a TV set with a 120 HZ panel and disable the frame interpolation algorithm. (In the settings menu).

All major brand TVS that I am aware of that are sold today with the 120HZ panel feature will properly convert 24,30,60 material to the 120HZ panel speed. (Also true of the 240 hz TVs). 24*5, 30*4,60*2 ... you get the picture ... no PUN intended....HA!
