Question 24p -> 48p

Hello folks!

Most of the TVs out there capable of displaying 1080p content, only display refresh rates of 50 or 60Hz (or 50p, 60p). Other displays like the 5000EX from Pioneer will speed up the 24p to 72p internally and then put the image on screen. BUT most of the displays which accept 50p or 60p also accept 48p or 72p like for ex. the Sony XBRs (I own one). This would not be a problem if I use a PC to playback the HD-DVDs, because I can just set the appropriate refresh rate in the display properties. Does anyone know if Thoshiba plans to implement this format as well in their HD-DVD Players?

I know there's a plan for 24p update to the second gen decks but I haven't heard anything else. I don't see why they couldn't do it though.

A free firmware update will allow the XA2 to output at 1080p/24 in the near future (February-ish).
