Default Anyone using 1080p24?

In the process of buying a new blu-ray/hd dvd player I have gotten severely sidetracked learning about 1080p24 and its supposed benefits.

I am just curious has anyone hands on seen the difference between the 2 framerates? I am guessing there are a few PS3 owners with TV's that can handle and display a 1080p24 signal who are now making use of this with the recent update.

Now a lot of this will depend on the TV itself but I am wondering if in "the real world" can you really see an appreciable difference?

There is a little difference with panning shots, they look a little smoother with 1080p/24.

Just got myself a BenQ w9000 projector and I am using it with a PS3 via HDMI.

It is not a night and day difference but it is clearly visible.

Not to be off-topic, but I've almost bought the Benq W9000. What projector did you have before, and how's the difference, when playing the HD formats?

I used to have a Sanyo Z4/720p projector and the difference is staggering. It's not only going from 720p to 1080p it is also a step up in projector quality overall.

It projects a really beatiful image and it is possible to ISF calibrate it with very good results.

The difference between 1080p60 and 1080p24 is extremely subtle. Most people won't be able to tell the difference.

Keep in mind too that when u output 24p in most cases there is no 1080p 24 to i 60 and then back to 1080p convergence. So you never convert the progressive image and outputs a true 1080p image...in most cases

This is an interesting thread......

I'm looking into buying a tv now and wonder if i need to get one capable of this technology. Right now it appears that it wouldn't make much difference if you had this or not, but are more things in 24p coming down the road?

I get to use the theater here at work every once in a while. It's the best thing I've veer experienced (as far as movies go). Here's the run down:

Runco VX-22d 3-chip DLP projector
Stewart FireHawk 126" Cinemascope screen
Lexicon RV-8 revceiver
Pioneer BDP-94HD Blu-ray player (1080p/24)
Monitor Audio Gold LCR front speakers
Sonance Cinema Ultra II side effects
Sonance Symphony S623T rear surrounds

If I had this at home, I'd probably never leave.

As far as 24fps goes: the image is smoother. For instance, in POTC2 when they're on the mill-wheel, at 60fps it is sort of jerky, but in 24fps it is smooth.

But when you go in there, crank up the PCM track to 0, and put on Pirates, Deja Vu, Casino Royale or whatever, it blows you away.

I got the xbr4, which is capable of 24p and i'm pretty sure my ps3 is as well so i should be able to test it out. I haven't had time to mess with it yet and to be honest i wouldn't know where to start looking anyways to change to that setting. Maybe it's the motionflow or cinemotion settings on the tv??
