I wouldn't put too much stock into that feature moving forward. If dealing with commercially produced SD DVD's, then maybe. But in order for it work, the necessary flags must be correctly implemented in order for the set to de-interlace, IVTC, and subsequently discard those extra pulldown frames. If everything isn't just right, the result is a train wreck. And I know for a fact that the greatest offenders of this stupid 24p in 60i video mess, the consumer/prosumer AVCHD & HDV camcorders, do NOT implement flags to facilitate extracting your original 24p footage from interlace hell. So you need to use a tool like Cineform's NEO HD(V) to detect cadence and remove pulldown to get back your original 24p video.
Death to interlaced video. It has no place in the 21st century.
