So I'm new to the whole HDTV blu-ray setup, and my question is:


When I turn on the 24fps(Movie) setting on my blu-ray player and playing blu-ray discs my tv says its displaying 1080 @ 24hz. When its on cable or dvds it says its displaying 1080 @ 60hz. So I'd like to know what is going on here, which is better, and weather I should leave it like that or turn it off?


My tv is Samsung PN50A530 and my Blu-ray player is Samsung BD-P1500 if that helps any.

Thanks.

Basically, movies are recorded at 24 frames per second, so if you watch it at any other frame rate it is being converted (see 3:2 pulldown on google).


Most TV is recorded at 30 or 60 frames per second.


Now many TVs and Blu-ray players do a great job of converting 24 to 60 (or 30), but the theory is that why risk it? Just play it at the native frame rate.
