I thought the whole issue with jaggies was when playing 24p? if the movie isn't even playing 24p, what is causing the jaggies?
That "Auto" setting doesn't work. It was designed to be used with HD DVDs that are specifically flagged to indicate whether the video stream is natively 1080p60 or 1080p24. Problem is, there are no HD DVDs with the needed flag, and now there never will be.
Without the flag, the player defaults to 1080p60 regardless of what's on the disc. So, essentially, setting it to "Auto" turns off 1080p24, even if you have 1080p24 turned on elsewhere.
