    I just realized something about my new Sony 4K UHD player.

    When I play a Blu-ray and press the remote's display button, it tells me that the video is 1080p/60p. Every other Blu-ray player I've had says 1080p/24p.

    Since movies are intended to be shown at 24fps, Wasn't the whole idea of 24p on Blu-ray was to get rid of the 3:2 pulldown. What's happening here?

    I don't want to sound rude, but are you sure you have 24fps turned ON in the player's settings? It's not "on" by default because not every TV is capable of properly showing 24fps. IT should be turned ON for blu-ray and turned to AUTO for DVD playback.

    I hope that helps!

    Check the 24p setting as mentioned.

    Many players report 1080i/60 and 1080i/50 as progressive. I don't know if this is only showing up on TV series or regular movies too.

    Are there that many displays out there that can even do true 1080p/60?
    I know there are some players and 4K TV that can do native 2160p/60 (Billy Lynn), but does that apply to 1080p signal being converted by some of the motion interpolation software?

    As memory serves 24ffp was NOT the default on my Sony...

    If you have a genuine 1080p/60p source, wouldn't it look like the "soap opera effect" on steroids?

    You're not being rude at all.

    I'll take a look.

    Okay, I found 24p Output in Screen Settings. My settings are:
    • Ultra HD Blu-ray/BD-ROM On
    • DVD-ROM Off
    • Data content Off
    • Network content Off
    I've also tried it with all but the first one on Auto.

    In all cases, it comes up 1080p/60p. I even tried bringing it back to Auto. No help.

    Are you running through an A/V Receiver or connected directly to your TV? My Denon receiver wants to output 1080/60 unless I tell it pass-thru direct.

    Directly to the TV. There's another HDMI on the player that goes directly to the receiver.

    In that case it's either the player is defective or your display isn't capable of accepting 24 fps. What's the make and model number of your display and how old is it?

    The television is a Vizio P55-C1. It manages 24p just fine thru my regular Blu-ray player.

    The new player is a Sony UBP-X700.

    I found the solution! It only does 24p if the video resolution setting is at 4K. I had it on Auto so I could see the resolution of what is on the disc.

    So the player's not capable of 1080p/24 output at all?

    I guess not. But that's not a big problem. If you've got a 1080p disc and a 4k TV, the image has to be up converted. The only difference is that the conversion is done in the player instead of the TV.

    I can live with that. The fact that I want to see the resolution of every extra on the disc is just me being nerdy.
