question about handloing of 1080p/24 material by LED TVs

by freshsnow / May 18, 2011 2:37 PM PDT

This is a naive question by someone upgrading their TVs. The Vizio XVT3 got an excellent rating by CNET reviews. However they noted improper handling of 1080p/24 which is a bit surprising since the TV is 240hz (a multiple of 24). The question I have is whether this will be a problem if I want to view movies on a blu-ray player. The CNET quick guide to HDTV (http://reviews.cnet.com/hdtv-resolution/?tag=rb_content;rb_mtx) suggests that the problem may be subtle - but this did not sound subtle in the CNET review of this TV. On the other hand, the "guide" also suggests that Blu-ray output by the player is usually modifiable so that a better "speed" can be chosen? Any advice on the probelm in general or on this TV in particular?

"For most viewers the visible benefits of 1080p/24 are slight."

This has been my experience as well. After watching too many, I would not pay for anything beyong what works.

Thanks Bob, I guess the question is since native Blue ray typically plays at 1080p/24 whether this is a problem for this TV, or whether output from Blu-ray players can be adjusted so that this TV will be able to display the film correctly?

Read the review and did not see the problem you noted.

However I find many folk to have a hard time getting around the ideas of frame rates, panel rates and how it must divide evenly. In this case it does so it should give the right effect.

However there are folk that will not accept anything. And I mean this. I have a friend I will not speak about tech items with since everything they buy gets returned. It's always something. Such as the font on the button labels are "wrong". Or a button is not at the same height as the other (seems to be preoccupied with buttons?) and then they hate the little black lines on displays.

Yes he does get out a " Magnifying Loupe " to show them but I don't want HD content with those.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
