I have another question about the Magnavox player, which I picked up yesterday at Wallyworld.
Most DVD players have a setup selection of "video/film/auto", which either forces 2/2 framing, 3/2 pulldown framing, or automatically sets via the 3/2 pulldown flag.
The Magnavox only has "auto" and "video", both of which sound ill-named. See page 34 of the manual.....
Auto DEFAULT : suited for playing back video material discs (TV shows or animation)
Video: the progressive mode will detect 24-frame film material (movies) and automatically select appropriate progressive mode
Boy this sounds backasswards. Sounds like their "video" mode is what most players call auto, and their "auto" mode is what most plyers call video.
Can anyone shed any light on this?
