Upgrade to the 2.7 first, and see how you like it.
If I remember right, it was the v2.8 that introduced those jaggies. v2.7 also has the 24fps support, though it doesn't always auto detect on DVD's (which need 30 I think to sometimes look good, depending on the disc), so you may need to toggle it to "1080p" for DVD's, and back to "1080p24" for HD-DVD's.
The 4.0 has a slightly different video setup menu, where you can set the "highest supported" resolution to 1080p24, but set the fps to "Auto" and it work a little better at auto-detecting the proper framerate to use. The downside to 3.0 and 4.0 was that they caused some weird DVD playback issues such as stuttering audio in the menu, and sometimes in the movie as well. This issue only affects regular DVD's, HD-DVD's play fine in those versions.
