I have a HLS5687W DLP RPTV. I received an A30 HD DVD player for Christmas. It now seems apparent that I have no good way to view 24p content. Here's a breakdown of my issues:


480i/p - No good for HD

720p - Best overall. A30 correctly performs pulldown to 60p. However, resolution is reduced.

1080i - A30 performs pulldown. TV can't remove it correctly. Thus, deinterlacing artifacts and reduced resolution.

1080p/60 - A30 screws up the pulldown/deinterlace. TV accepts signal, though.

1080p/24 - TV won't accept it.


Am I pretty much screwed? I don't have the option of buying different equipment, it's technically my parents' stuff and I have no money.

I guess I'll wait and see if the next firmware update is a miracle worker. Seems doubtful, but optimism never hurt anyone.

Yes. The HLT Samsung LED TVs won't do 1080p/24fps with Toshiba HD DVD players, either. However, I think people have had luck using Blu-Ray, though.

All of the second and third gen HD-DVD players do 1080p/24 except the A2 and A3. The TV may not do it though.
