Did 2.8 allow you to get 24p when you could not before?

  • Yes, I now have 24p and could not get it before on HD DVD

    Votes: 0 0.0%
  • No, I still cannot get 24p with HD DVD even though I can otherwise.

Can't understand why or how people could be getting mixed results here if we are all on the same page ie the player forces 24hz mode to display irrespective of EDID.

I can force 1080p24 from my PS3 to my Pro-930HD, but I can't get the XA2 to force a 1080p24 signal to the display. Instead the XA2 downconverts the signal back to 1080i. I know the Pro-930HD does not officially support 1080p24 but it will accept the signal when forced from the PS3 but not the XA2, therefore it looks like firmware 2.8 does not truly "force" 1080p24.

Because the Toshibas do not have forced!

benmoree, I have the exact same set up as you and this report makes me unhappy. I still have original firmware on XA2 and I was going to soon update my player to 2.8 but now whats the point.


On another note, I'm having difficulty burning a disk, accessing an ethernet connection and Toshiba Canada said 6 months ago they would send update disks but nothing has arrived, even after repeated phone calls to them.

Well it does seem clear now that 2.8 update did not include a forced option for 24hz.


What I can't understand however is that why some should now get 24hz output whilst others don't when this was already available with the previous 2.7 update.

I don't know if this is helpful to you guys, but according to Japanese update note somebody linked before, selecting "AUTO" option for forced 24 does not work.

I can't confirm this because it looks like the link does not work right now, but if I remember it correctly, the "AUTO" option is for the future implementation

For those that said to successfully force a 24p output with firmware 2.8, can they please let us know which player and which display that can achieve this ?


It would be a good reference.

What TV do you have? Is your ability to do 1080/24 b\\c your tv can natuarally do it, or because it is "forced"

my tv is a samsung 5265f which can accept 24hz but the tv converts back to 60hz.


the TV info displays the input of 24hz with 2.7 firmware and the latest 2.8. So i'm assuming i was able to "force" it.
