I gotcha. I did 'calibrate' my TV based on some settings from a popular HDTV website (forgetting the name) to be best tuned for movies. It's in my basement (no windows), but I'll check out the settings...can't remember what it's set at. Thanks for the recommendation, I'll have to give it another shot.

I admit I've never watched that many movies in the theatres, but when I finally came home with a massive TV and a BluRay player (PS3) that supported 24p, I couldn't wait. 24p is what the source material is really shot in, it was going to be epic. Set up everything, made sure 24p was on, and got rolling.

It sucked. Sucked bad. Maybe it's the movies I chose, but any time the camera even somewhat slowly panned across the screen it the limitations of 24p became glaringly obvious. After my wife and I watched a few different movies I was ready to return my TV thinking there was something wrong with the HDMI input. Then I remembered the 24p factor, disabled it on the player, and watched in glory as the screen refreshed at a rate that supported my brain.

I don't get the draw of 24p...is it a videophile thing, like people who only listen to vinyl?
