But why would "1:1 Framerate - ON" prevent this? I mean let's say the Edge does what I said, 1:1 I thought is just there to allow both 1080p60 and 1080p24 as output. I guess you're saying that if you select 1080p24 output, 1:1 doesn't work? That's a bug then I'd say.
djos answered, but allow me to expand on that.
1:1 does work and it is not broken, it does exactly what it should do per the description of how it works. 1:1 framerate looks at the framerate of the input signal and locks the output to that same framerate. So 480i/60 or 480p/60 has a framerate of 60 hence the output will be locked to 60p if 1:1 is enabled. 1:1 works for 99% of scenarios - NTSC and PAL (60 vs 50) are automatically correctly handled, and 24P inputs are also passed through as 24p. The thing about 1:1 is this: it causes the EDGE to ignore the framerate chosen in the output setup, and instead use the framerate of the input. The only time this is an issue for me is SD-DVD and HD cable where the input framerate is 60/50. For HD-DVD and Blu-Ray, they output 24p and 1:1 works just fine for them.
As to the "it can't work because DVD encodes are not perfect" argument: seeing is believing. De-interlacing is one of the strong points of EDGE. It works for me.
