It's an Onkyo/Integra thing. It has terrible pass through with this player that loses the handshake for up to 30 seconds whenever it changes formats.
There are two ways to get around this that worked for me.
1. Plug the 2500 directly into the TV to set the 24 mode. Then plug it back into the AVR.
2. Guess. When it goes black the 2500 is waiting for a confirmation but because the handshake takes so long it disappears before you can see it. Do it again and when the screen goes black press the red button. Or right cursor and okay. I forget which it is but one of them will be hitting the confirmation okay on the screen you can't see.
After that be prepared for some annoying handshaking when going from 24 fps movies to the regular 60 fps disc extras.
This player would be perfect if my Onkyo liked it as much as it does my PS3.
