If the 3500 model is basically the same as the 5500, does that mean 24p does not work with Netflix on the latter as well? That one discouraging Amazon review has kept me from buying the s5500 until I...

Can anyone here who has a Sony BDP S5500 confirm that it can stream Netflix at 24p. I ask this because I have read one customer review saying that it would only do that for Vudu and Amazon Instant.
