    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.

    Seriously, nice TV. What was the price, if I can ask?

    Completely unrelated:

    On the product's website, the graphic showing the AllShare blurb, look at the phone. It's a Samsung Omnia 2 (Verizon branded). Look closer... it's a screenshot of the iPhone OS. Look eeeeeven closer. The screenshot is bordered by the Windows Mobile 6 top and bottom bars.

    Fail Samsung... Fail.

    The price is on the Sam's Club website, so it's no secret, especially since they don't "negotiate".:)

    I only saw the 55" on the Sam's Club website, hence the question.

    Hmmmm, that's strange, I didn't mean to be rude, sorry. Anywho, $2699.

    No worries. Stands to reason the 60" LCDs would come out after I buy my 55". Still, I'm happy. The Samsung looks nice too. How are those TV Apps?

    They work fine for me, and the Netflix one works perfectly (which is the one I use more than any other). Some are a bit underwhelming, but that is the nature of the apps themselves and nothing to do with the TV.

    Since this is a sat forum, I really don't want to go any further in discussing this tv, other than its direct applicability to the HR/H series boxes, where the thread started (1080p/24 compatibility).

    I'm not sure of the purpose of this post. Isn't this how it is supposed to work? That's how my HR20-700 has always handled 1080p and how my Samsung handles 1080p/24.

    Exactly the way my TV works as well. When I bought my TV it was $3400.00. I wish I would have waited for the "8500" but as with any technology...you can't keep up without spending tons of money!!

    The reason I posted is that there are (or at least have been) several TVs spec'd for 1080p that did not do 24 fps, even though they were allegedly supposed to. Several forum members got badly bitten by this, so I posted that the set I bought worked properly with the HR series boxes, so if someone was considering a purchase, they would know for a fact that the Samsung UN60C6400 did properly support what the HR20-700 (et al) required to view VOD content of 1080p. I just wanted to add it to the list of sets that worked as expected, since it has been problematic for some in the past.

    Last Saturday, I picked up the UN55C6300 LED.
    55" vs the 60", and doesn't have the networking features.

    But I have a blu-ray player to do most of it, and the HR24 does the rest.
    Picture is unreal, and was a direct swap replacement of my old plasma on the wall.

    I had it up and installed in less then 1 hr (that includes taking the old one down, pulling the old component and DVI cables, and running just the one HDMI).

    Fantastic.
    $1999 at BB (but I think someone did a pricematch as the same time the website price was $2200 at BB)

    Works great with the 1080p content.

    I'm glad to see the 6300 series does 1080p properly, as well. I'm absolutely stunned at the video quality....and Hi Earl!, we haven't exchanged a post in what seems like years.:)

    Thanks guys, now I've got a new tv itch... I think a Sammy 60" might be needed for football season this year.

    You bet, paulman. In fact, I was just over in another thread and sure enough there was a new post about a Panny that wouldn't work, when it appeared it should. I wish the manufacturers would publish (or even list in the manual) what frame rates they support. I couldn't find it on the box or in the manual on this new Sammy, and I lucked out...it works. It should be in the specifications section, but it isn't.
