Hi, I'm truly sorry if this is a repeating topic around the title.


I'm in Europe, all my equipment is bought there.

PS3 connected to an LCD with HDMI 3.1 cable.


My BD player is a PS3 with firmware 2.53 (latest)

The Video Setting for BD / DVD Video Output Format (HDMI) is set

to automatic (output 1080p 24 Hz or not if the TV doesn't support it).


My LCD is a SAMSUNG LE40F7 Full HD 1080p and the HDMI supports

- 50Hz: 480p, 576p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p.

- 60Hz: 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p.

And I have my LCD HDMI set to support all above resolutions.


My confusion is very basic and relies when playing a BD 1080p.

1. I see from above my LCD doesn't support 24hz.


My LCD display info tells me its playing [email protected]

So, being in europe, 50Hz makes only sense with watching PAL?


2. on what conversion would take place from 24Hz to 60Hz

Is it correct there's always 3:2 pulldown from 24Hz to 60Hz?

How would it go from 24Hz to 50Hz? speedup 4% to 25Hz then double it??


Feel free to best explain how to conclude the conversation and pulldown that can occur.


Thanks.

Interesting . . . Yes, 24Hz to 60Hz - will have to have 3:2 pulldown applied. In the case of Blu-ray where the movie is encoded on the disc in native 24 fps, then the Blu-ray player would have to do the 3:2 pulldown (telecine) before sending to the TV.


Now, 24Hz to 50Hz, yes, you are correct, in Europe it is normal to speed up the movie by 4% to 25Hz and then do 2:2 pulldown. Sometimes pitch correction is done in the digital domain, sometimes not. But, I have no idea in the case of a Blu-ray player if they can do this.


Maybe someone here will know the answer to this.
