does the tv have to be 24fps compatiable to receive the 1080P movies on Directv?


If your TV is not 1080P/24hz compatible you can still watch the movie at 1080i. Make sure your HDDVR is set to native and the 1080P option is selected.

No, but if it isn't 1080/24p compatible, the DirecTV receiver will down-convert to 1080/60i (or 720p if 1080i isn't enabled). So, you can watch it, and you'll get the benefit of the higher bitrates used for downloaded movies (vs. normal real-time satellite streams), but you won't get 1080p unless the TV supports 1080/24p.

I guess I'm one of the few without the Blu-Ray. :) Good movie just not interested in watching in over and over again.

I might check out this DoD though just to see how it looks.

This one escapes the '1080P' keyword search even though 1080P is in the description.

Any search ideas?

I haven't performed a search for it.
I went straight to channel 1100 and selected High-Def.
Upon selecting High-Def,it lists 2 tabs now,as follows:
All
1080p

:)

EDIT: I just went through the steps listed above,and now Tropic Thunder shows up in the list.
But,Tropic Thunder does not have the 1080p icon listed beside the title,just the HD icon.
