like if you had a 720p tv that can accept 1080p signals and downconvert to 720p for display, it'd show 1080p instead of 720p in the pop up display. but you are still only seeing 720p regardless of the source.
understood and ty, the Samsung 450 series Is a 720 plasma. What little I have found/read corresponds to glum's conclusion, 24fps makes little difference (Blu-ray as input).
That was why I decided to pursue it, but see that it's unlikely that anyone will have my odd-ball setup.
With a 720p display, I did not go in expecting to see a difference at all, let alone an improvement. Only after watching several movies over several nights did I notice when the 24 had been turned off on the A30 (1080p/24 vs 1080p/auto)
Film mode=auto is always on for the Sammy & the obvious question is 'does it do -anything-' lol.
I wouldn't be the first person to fool myself with new toys, obviously.rockyroad
, if you are asking how the A30 does upconverting DVDs, I use the oppo for that. The A30 seems to do a good job, but I hate the machine when compared to an oppo, so I use it only for HD. If you are asking if the 1080p24Hz setting 'improves' a good transfer DVD, I do not know.
