Sony is notorious for not supporting 1080p/24, necessary for 1080p product from DirecTV. Check your setup under Miscellaneous options to see what resolutions are supported in your HR unit.

Support for other modes of 1080p will not translate to 1080p/24 support.

The TV in question is a 2005 model. In 2005, the number of consumer TV manufacturers that supported 1080/24p was ONE: Pioneer made a single, high-end, very expensive model that supported it. That Pioneer aside, the first TVs that supported 1080/24p came out in 2006, and included Sony's entire HD line, among which were the KDS-xxA3000 TVs that replaced the OP's 2000 series.

I'm not sure where the perception comes from that Sony is any different than any other manufacturer in this area, but they aren't. Of the big TV names, the major offenders were Mitsubishi, Panasonic, and (if you consider them "big"), Visio, who didn't support 1080/24p input signals until 2008.

Thanks for the info. Guess that's what I get for buying one of the first ones of a new model.
Its disappointing I know, but you only hope the manufacturers could have found a way to update their previous models with a firmware update that would allow them to accept 1080p/24 signals. In some cases it probably want possible based on some of the older chipsets in use, they might not have been capable of 1080p/24. The A3000 that I have works great.
