I believe I can answer yes to jeffstra's question, but there's a catch. I have an HR21-700 connected by HDMI to a Toshiba 65HM117 TV. It certainly does accept the 1080p/24 signal, and its info button confirms it's receiving a 1080p signal. I have recorded the following 1080p/24 movies off Showtime VOD. World's Fastest Indian, The Ex, Up Close and Personal, Final Draft and the Rise of Taj. But do they play properly? Well, here's the funny thing. When I first switched the HR21 on this morning and pressed list, I tried each movie and they all played fine with the 720p and 1080i lights lit on the HR21. No jerky motion or any other picture problems, however all of them had only two channel sound. I then changed channels and checked some other recordings from satellite and then I went back to the VOD recordings. Unfortunately, they all now have jerky motion. To make sure there's nothing wrong with any of my set-up, I checked the Hulk 1080p test and it played fine. I then went back to the Showtime recordings and they were still jerky. It's like there's a synch issue or something, but the successful Hulk playback suggests it's not something wrong at my end. I hope somebody from Showtime is reading this thread.
