Auto will output SD, 720p and 1080i content depending on what your display supports, whereas 1080p will upscale content (1080p24 signals do not apply as you have set 24p output to on). If you prefer to upscale none 1080p content, change it to 1080p.

I am not sure if the 'cinema' setting does what it says on the Vizio, I suspect the other option you have tried is 'standard'?

Unless I read the manual wrong doesn't the resolution need to be set to Auto in order for the 24p to work?

I have the Pioneer Elite BDP-23FD. That can output 24p right? I know if I am watching bluray and set the bd player to 'Source Direct' it can output the native source of 1080p/24. But what if I am watching dvd, is there a way to upconvert it and put put it to 24p?

Hi oppopioneer,

24p equates to 1080p24 content, i.e. Blu-ray as you said. I believe the Oppo can output DVD at 24 frames per second, but not the Pioneer (not 100% sure). If you set the 23fd to output 1080, it will output at either 50 or 60Hz. Source Direct will take whats encoded and output it to your display, thus no convertion happens within the player (although 720p24 is converted to 720p/60).

Taken from the Oppo website (bdp-103):

Quote:
•True 24p™ Video - Many Blu-ray Discs are recorded at 24 frames per second, the same frame rate as the original movie's theatrical release. The BDP-103 can faithfully redeliver the original frames using 1080p 24Hz output (compatible display required) for smoother motion and a flicker-free, film-like home theater experience. It can also restore the original 24 frames per second progressive-scan video from well-authored DVDs and output 1080p 24Hz.
•Source Direct Mode - For users who wish to use an external video processor, the BDP-103 offers a "Source Direct" mode. The original audio/video content on the discs is sent out with no additional processing or alteration.

Hey oppopioneer - set your Pioneer to 'Auto' in the output resolution menu. This will cover 1080p/24fps for Blu's and it will upscale DVD.

Just an update.. I'm loving this Blu-Ray player. 24p is working great and I'm actually even using this to stream Netflix instead of my HTPC. The only drawback so far is the limited apps. I've always used Slacker on my Blu-Ray player as the interface is better and you can skip tracks with the remote, I'm really missing that option but it's a small price to pay.
