If your TV can accept 1080p/24hz, that's usually the better option. Film (movie) HD DVDs are almost all encoded at 24 fps (frames per second), the frame rate of film itself. A few HD DVDs, such as concerts, are recorded with HD video cameras at 60 hz, so you would need to switch back to "regular" 1080p for those.

Movies are displayed in 24hz (24 frames per second). You can take advantage of this setting if you have a 24fps capable HDTV.

Yes, your TV will accept a 24Hz signal. A 24Hz signal will give you a better representation of the movie's actual framerate, thereby displaying the movie in a manner more consistant with the director's intentions. To actually take advantage of the feature, you will need to turn off the TruMotion technology (if it doesn't turn off automatically, and if you can turn it off at all). The TruMotion adds a smoothing effect to the picture that nullifies most, if not all, the purpose of the tv accepting a 24Hz signal. That being said, you might like the picture better with the TruMotion processing applied. That's fine too, it's just not how the image is supposed to look.

First off, congrats on the new set

Secondly, yes, leave it on for movies. Film runs at 24 frames per second (24p) while video runs at 60p, so if your television is set to 24p it is running the same native frame speed as what the movie was filmed in.

I'm pretty new to HT, but I believe this eliminates 3:2 pulldown, which creates some artifacts on screen. Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong though?

Bottom line answer is yes though, run movies at 24p/1080p.

How do you know whether his TV accepts a 24Hz signal without knowing the actual model? He could have a 60hz HDTV.
