Default HD A35 video setting? A little confused

Alright, I bought a new TV (Pioneer) and originally had the player set at 1080p/24 but when I went to watch a regular dvd of C.S.I. Miami it looked like frames were missing. Since this show I believe was shot on video for the 1st season i don't believe it's 24 fps.

So I reset the player to output "up to 1080p" and it looks much better and fixed the problem. So:

1) Now am I supposed to switch it back to 1080p/24 when I pop an HD DVD in?

2) What setting has been found to be the best for all resolutions?

HD A35 to Pioneer SC-07 to Pioneer 141 is my set up. I'm still reading all the manuals as some things have changed in the receiver and I'm learning the plasma's capabilities.

I do have the monitor set for playback at 72hz.

I don't have a display that can take 1080p/24fps personally. But, from what I've read there is no "best setting for all resolutions". Leave it on 1080p/24 for most titles, and manually lower down to up to 1080p for those occasional TV show DVDs shot on video.

Yup, that's correct. There just isn't one "single best" setting for everything.

There is when using a 1080i set...

Yeah, that's what I figured. Why can't they actually come up with a way for the player to REALLY be able to automatically choose the right output. You'd think they'd have been able to figure that out by now.

You are correct the show was shot in video so it would not have been 24p like film. I just wish the a35 could change resolutions easily without having to stop and go into the menu.
