I just got the above 60" Sammy at Sam's Club. As it turns out, this set properly supports 1080p/24 from the HR20-700. I downloaded a VOD 1080p movie to test and observed the following: 1. Both 720p and 1080i lights are lit on the HR20-700 2. The Samsung shows 1920 x 1080 @ 24 Hz, when the info button is pressed. I didn't buy the TV for this purpose, rather because its picture is a complete knockout. Discovering that it worked for 1080p VOD was an unexpected plus. I also changed the output on my two DVRs on this TV from 720p to 1080i. (Native Off) I doubt I can see the difference, especially since the picture is so darn stunning as it is. Viewing distance is about 13 to 14 feet.
