Could be some weird interplay with other settings, like deep color, cinema mode, RGB, HDMI control, quick start, you name it. There are 5 settings related to 24p alone (24p, BD, DVD, Data and Network). Are all of those ON/AUTO? I've had dozens of Sony BD players since the beginning of BD, and all have had illogical settings that inter-relate in unexpected ways. Some recent BD players (I forget which make) would only do 24p Netflix if you had previously played a BD at 24p. So weird things can happen. I think it's worth a shot to try a few other things. Other than a settings issue, it makes no sense that it would work for some and not others.
I'll probably pick up one of these models myself eventually, but not anytime soon. I usually make my move when used prices drop below $40. The 1500 is getting close, but isn't quite there yet.
Anyway, I'm only in this to satisfy my own curiosity. I understand if you're tired of wasting time on it.
