Interesting information. Does anyone know, however, with a regular DVD player and a CRT TV what the player is outputting what the TV does with that information? I'm thinking the player sends out a 480i signal in 3:2 "telecine" format (is that the right term?) at 60hz and the t.v. then displays that information by interlacing the information to form 30 images per second. It sounds like that's the set up for the judder that everyone is now trying to get rid of, because the DVD player has to combine two separate frames film for every third or fourth frame of data output in order to convert 24 fps to the 60hz the TV can accept. I think in the old days, (i.e., 10 years ago) televisions did not do any of the conversion work, they could only accept the 480i, 60hz signal they were designed to accept. A separate device like a DVD player had to do the conversions. Now the TV's are designed to do the conversion as well. Thus, the judder that one sees on a CRT tv would not be seen if one was watching the movie in a theatre (it seems like I've read elsewhere that some people like the judder because it seems more "natural" like the film was "intended" to be viewed).
