    1) This is ** ONLY ** if your set supports 1080p/24 .. Some sets only support 1080p/60.

    I don't know if mine supports 1080p/24 since I can't find any documentation that is does. I have read that no Samsung TVs support it.

    2) Only post if your television is not detected by the software as compatible automatically (e.g. You cheated and pressed {INFO} and it worked, please post).

    I don't know how to do this cheat so I'm assuming I shouldn't be posting because it seems to be working for me, with an issue. When I played back Californication18HD, it works (Both 720p and 1080i LEDs lit, indicating 1080p/24) but the picture is jittery. I don't know if these is an issue with D* or my TV. I'm assuming it's the TV. Using HDMI, btw.

    3) What Make and Model TV you have.... And if your TV has a "software"/firmware number or something else, that would be helpful too.

    Samsung LNT-4665f firmware version 1037

    4) Did you "cheat" and press {INFO} to make it work? (Yes/No)

    I belive "no" since I don't know how to do the cheat.

    Update:
    I downloaded Californication 18HD from Showtime and my TV says it is displaying 1080p/24 and both 720 and 1080 led's are both on while playing back.

    It seems I can watch 1080p/24 but my HR22 will not detect it.

    Works only if I cheat and press "info" button.

    TV: Sony KDL-52XBR5 and HR-21 connected directly to the TV via HDMI cable.

    Black screens if I do not press "info" button.

    Once working it seems to hold and plays 1080p/24 (the movie Premonition downloaded from DOD) without issue.

    I tried the 1080p option again and this time hit info and it appears to now work. Now I just need to find something to download in 1080p to test it. Is there an icon on the DOD screens for 1080p? From my scan of the HD offerings on Tuesday I couldn't find anything labeled as 1080p in the download menu.

    1) This is ** ONLY ** if your set supports 1080p/24 .. Some sets only support 1080p/60.

    My Sony SXRD KDS55A2000 supports both 1080p/24 and 1080p/60. It will not display 1080p content streaming from the HR20-700 or the HR20-100 via HDMI. Both DVR's are enabled for 1080p.

    2) Only post if your television is not detected by the software as compatible automatically (e.g. You cheated and pressed {INFO} and it worked, please post).

    I did press info during the setup and got a confirmation that 1080p was enabled.

    3) What Make and Model TV you have.... And if your TV has a "software"/firmware number or something else, that would be helpful too.

    Sony SXRD KDS55A2000, firmware unknown but according to Sony Support, I am at the latest level.

    4) Did you "cheat" and press {INFO} to make it work? (Yes/No) Yes.

    SXRD KDS-R70XBR2. This TV (as per docs on the web) is supposed to accept 24fps and 60fps. However, it will convert 24fps to 60fps adding 3/2 pulldown.

    2) Only post if your television is not detected by the software as compatible automatically (e.g. You cheated and pressed {INFO} and it worked, please post).

    I get "Unsupported Video Signal. Check device output"


    4) Did you "cheat" and press {INFO} to make it work? (Yes/No)

    Yes, and it took the 1080p setting. However, I haven't found 1080p content to play. My guess is that it won't really work.

    Is there a way to search for 1080p content on VOD? I want to download something 1080p to see whether the same error is shown.

    I have an HR20 and a Sony Bravia KDL-XBR2. The HR20 would not recognize my TV. I did the info cheat and it said 1080p was available on my set. Downloaded Premonition and tried to play. Both lights on the 720 and 1080 were lit but i got a message on my TV that said - unsupported format check your device output. You would think a year old Sony could play the signal. So it looks like the receiver is playing it but i can't watch it. Any ideas anyone?

    Vizio VU42L - HR20-700 does not list it as supporting 1080/24p, However it does appear to work just fine.

    Vizio GV47LF - HR20-100 does not list it as supporting 1080/24p but the manufacturer states that it does. It does NOT work.

    Sharp LC-37D64U - HR20-700 reports it supports 1080/24p and sure enough, no trick needed.

    HR20-100
    Pioneer Elite Pro-110
    1080p/24 (All Showtime VOD's)

    All Showtime VOD's when played back have both the 720p and 1080i lights "On" and ALL have the bottom 1/3 third of the screen out of sync with the top 2/3's. All 1080p/24 downloaded movies (Bucket List, MI III, Bank Job) played flawlessly.

    This should be a standard handshake that has been around for several years now so why is this so difficult at DTv? :mad:

    TV: Mitsubishi WD-65733
    DVR: HR22

    When I got the notice about 1080p, I tried it, and it worked. But I was trying to figure out how to get it to that resolution since it didn't select via the format button. In the process, I tried it again, and all I got was the black screen. After trying several things, I did get it to work. So for you Mitsubishi owners, keep trying to see if it works. I think it had to do with whether I was on an HD channel or not. Not sure, but it's worth a shot.

    I have a 2007 Panasonic TH-65PZ850U that supports 24p Cinematic Playback mode (displays 1080p/24 content at 48Hz)

    TV not detected automatically with my HR20-700, I had to force it with INFO.
