    1) Supports 1080p/24 & it can do BluRay from PS3 just fine

    2) Is not detected by the software as compatible automatically I cheated and pressed {INFO} and it worked, I think. I haven't tried any downloaded movies yet.

    3) Sony KDS60A3000 Software EN-BMN-A-L-C-D-T-B-T through Yamaha Recvr.#863 HDMI HR21-100

    4) Did you "cheat" and press {INFO} to make it work? YES

    (5) My TV supports 1080P/24

    (worked fine automatically on other Sony KDL52XBR4 direct from HR21-100 but we still have not watched a VOD 1080p on it yet)

    HR20-700: Samsung LN52A850 (firmware 1004) through Denon AVR-5308CI (firmware 1.76) with video processing disabled, not detected. PS3 works fine this way.

    Instead of the "Info" trick I re-ran dish setup, which enabled all resolutions.

    The TV is detected OK when connected directly to the HR20, so the HR20 doesn't like the AVR.

    Vizio GV47LFHDTV, according to Vizio support my TV does support 1080p/24

    The GV47 will support 1080p 24fps through the TV's 3:2 reverse pull-down
    circuitry. Please click on the link below to review the TV


    But the HR-21/700 says my TV does not support 1080P, so who do I start yelling at? Vizio or Directv?

    Sony KDL52XBR4 did not work at first, but I pressed the info button and now it works.

    I have a Mitsubishi a 24p compatible WD73736 connected via hdmi through an Onkyo TXSR875 (also 24p compatible), and HR21-200 does not detect it as 24p capable. The 875 has it's own scaler built in, and is the device doing the handshake with the HR, so I believe THAT is the device that compatibility needs to be worked on. It's currently on firmware 1.04.

    I have not tried the cheat to force 24p output.

    My 1 year old Vizio 52" GVFHD 1080p and Vizio 42" VU42LF 1080p sets don't report supporting 1080/24 on the DIRECTV DVR, yet they both work fine. Vizio tech support told me that all of their recent 1080p sets (last 1-2 years) support 1080p/24.

    Sony KDL-52XBR5, TV Software version: Q-BMN-A-L-C-D-P-BMM-O

    Supports 1080p/24 according to TV specs

    Autodetect from HR21-700 failed

    Info button cheat works.

    I have a JVC RS1 projector that supports 1080p/24. My HR20-700 is connected via HDMI to a Denon 4380 AVR in pass-through mode. The DVR reports that my set does not support 1080p/24. None of my other 1080p/24 devices are having issues. I have a toshiba HD player and a Panasonic BR player that both output 1080p/24 without difficulty (the info screen on my RS1 confirms this). Any ideas?

    Can someone describe the info cheat?

    I have a Toshiba 42" LX177 with the following firmware:

    Jun 13 2007 - 14:57:32
    FW: 2E

    This TV supports 24hz and I had to use the INFO button trick to access 1080p on my HR20-700. Don't know if it actually works because they pulled the 1080p movies before I could download any of them.

    Vizio SV420XVT1A connected to HR21-700. 1080p/24 is NOT listed in Supported Resolutions on HR21. "Info " trick does cause it work. Several 1080p/24 movies play excellently.

    HP md5880n 1080p DLP television. It shows it's displaying 1080p when it's playing a Blu-Ray disk.

    It did not work when tested with the HR-20-700, but cheated with the Info button and it now works.

    HR20-100 hooked to Panasonic TH-42PZ700U via HDMI didn't work.

    I saw the on screen message briefly after selecting 1080p for the output but the screen went nearly dark and shifted the picture to the upper left quadrant of the display.
    The text then said my TV was not compatible.

    I wasn't aware of the "info" trick s(still don't know what it is) so I didn't try anything else.

    Samsung 750, fw 1009.1. Does support 1080p/24 and works flawlessly with the PS3. Fails the 1080p test with my HR22. Actually, when I click the 1080p setting, it shows the pass screen for about 1/2 of a second, then blacks out, flickers for several seconds, then brings up the Not Pass screen. Have tried 7 times, and get the same result each time. Have not tried the info button trick. Monoprice HDMI 1.3 cables.

    Edit: I should note that it is being passed through a Yamaha 1800 AVR, which does support 24p, and simply passes the video signal without touching it.

    1) Yes my TV supports 1080p/24? (Could not find it in the specs)

    2) Not detected automatically

    3) Model: Samsung HLT-6187S

    4) Did you "cheat" and press {INFO} to make it work? Yes

    Had some problems with watching VBR coded movie (Harry Potter)

    Other then that, it is really great, no artifacts or motion blur could be seen in the sample movies that were provided by DTV.

    It will play DOD in 1080p24! I watched Premonition on Ch.1537 & it worked well with the Sony KDS60A3000 :) I guess the info trick worked. Who hoo! Now if I only had a faster DSL speed I might could watch it the same day I start the download:mad:

    see thread http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=143812 for 1080p movies

    My HR20-700 won't recognize my TV as 1080P/24 capable. Here's the info

    1. Sony KDL-52W3000
    2. HR20-700
    3. Yes TV is 1080P/24 input capable according to multiple sources
    4. Won't detect automatically, but can force it by pushing INFO

    After forcing, I tested by downloading Californication that some posters had referenced as 1080P. Both lights came on indicating 1080P, but no picture. I'm assuming that forcing the acceptance of a 1080P setting wasn't enough. Hope I'm able to get this figured out.

    1) Mfr says will support D* 1080P signal.

    2) it was NOT detected.

    3) Sharp AQUOS LC-65D64U

    4) Worked after INFO cheat.

    5) Manufacturer CSR AND D* CSR said it WOULD work.
