Default 1080p/24fps?

Forgive me for asking this if has already been answered. Does the 5K output 1080p/24fps?
My 606 will only upconvert to 1080i, which is fine for my DVD player but I read my projector will handle the 1080p/24fps and look even better.

That would mean that I would have to change the 606 output from 1080i to "thruogh" for my hidef material and rental DVDs and back to 1080i to look at movies from my 400 disc changer.

I guess another option would be to use my analog audio outs to my 606 and run my hdmi out directly to the second hdmi input on my projector.

If the 5K does not output 1080p/24fps it's all moot.
Please advise.

Only through HDMI though.... Analog is a no go. Not that I mind but frankly what is 1080p/24fps vs 1080p/60fps? I've watched a alot of both HD DVD and Blu Ray and....haven't noticed any differences between the two.. Even when hooked directly to my TV and set at 1080p/24fps.

So what is it that I am lookn for?

I think the picture is supposed to be more film like, whatever that means. I'm going to the menu to see if I can see a difference and report back.

Many people report that they can indeed see a difference, but you have to have the TV that can display 24fps AND the player set to "Film Mode"=On in order to turn it on...Remember though that not every title can be seen in 24fps either. There are some titles that force 60 fps...I cant remember which ones off the top of my head though.

I read a review on my projector that stated 1080p/24fps would look better. They must have better vision than i do. I don't see any difference. Or perhaps I don't know what to look for.

While it may look different in most cases, I am thinking that since your projector is 720P (I think), that this may have something with you not seeing as much of a difference. I could be wrong though...

Good sources for comparisons of 24fps vs 60fps: Any movie scene that utilizes lengthy, consistently smooth camera pans (the beginning of Sahara is an excellent one) or rolling credits at the conclusion of a movie. If you notice jittery motion, chances are you are not getting 24fps processing. I notice this with my Samsung LCD manufactured in 2007 and it has given me a bad case of upgraditis.

Default Color Fading during Playback of HD DVD

I am wondering if anyone else has seen or had this occur to them. I was watching Troy in Hd DVD and during the movie the colors faded out. I pulled the disk and restrated the movie (back to the original chapter) and everything worked fine.

I just upgraded the firmware to the newest version last week - not sure if that has anything to do with it.

Not sure what the issue was. Any idea from anyone would be appreciated.
