If your TV can handle 24p, by all means select that. In that case, the player will usually still output video-based programs such as concert Blu-Rays at their native 60p.

The PCM soundtrack was 5.1, as was the Dolby Digital soundtrack. 7.1 soundtracks didn't exist at that time.
Personally, I'd prefer to let the receiver do the decoding.

Franky, one thing to keep in mind when selecting PCM in the player (letting the player decode the soundtrack), you may notice a loss of bass impact. A few years ago, it turned out that receivers were...
