? Would that in turn mean PC mode Advance is 1080p
@72hz, or 1080i
@72hz, or both? All the manual says is it's "not available for 1080p @60hz".
You shouldn't worry about 1080p support.
All Pure Cinema modes support 1080p.
The difference is in 24p support.
Don't pay attention to those @72Hz and so on. Leave that for somebody else
. Those gimmicks will just distract you from the practical point.
The only valid criterion is "smoother motion" or "no smoother motion".
In Off and Smooth modes you simply don't have the advantage of 24p (smoother motion). As clearly seen from the test
, Standard and Advance modes provide 24p advantage - smoother motion. No one here have posted any facts opposite to that.
I cannot imagine any problem if you use Advance at all times. I do so. You always have 1080p and also 24p when available.
When you get your 5020 calibrated, you can stay with Standard mode. According to turbe, calibration is valid for this mode too.
So in Standard mode you don't have to sacrifice 24p support in favour of calibrated colors as you have to in Off mode. In Standard (again according to turbe) you can have both excellent colors and advantage of 24p (smoother motion).
So the OFF mode is not 72hz as has been said here? Or it is, but that's not all there is to smooth playback?
It does not matter whatever has been said about the number of Hz. I am (and everyone is) interested in 24p smoother motion
in fact, practically on the screen. In this regard Off mode does not look better than regular 1080p (non-24p) = no smoother motion.
So there is no need to talk about Off mode.
We have Standard and Advance and that's enough to be happy with 24p support. Don't worry.
