New to HDR: 24p Confusion
Just a question. I own a Sony a9G and a Sony X700 4K BD player. Keep in mind that I am completely new to HDR and am not really familiar with it at all.
Anyway, in the past, I’ve always kept the 24p setting to “Off” on my BD player, while also keeping all motion enhancements “Off” on my TV itself. 24p has always just looked kind of weird to me, which is probably attributed to watching movies for many, many years and having become accustomed to the panning looking a certain way. I don’t know.
I’ve noticed, however, that in order for HRD to kick on with an HDR disc, I have to go into my BD player settings and change 24p to “Auto” instead of “Off.” I’m assuming that enabling 24p is required for HDR to work. I spent a good hour trying to figure out why HDR wouldn't activate on my A9G until I turned this setting to Auto.
My question is, is this normal? Or is this player specific? Can HDR content be watched with 24p set to off or is it required?
