    I couldn't get the picture from the manual to come up, but I'm assuming you are referring to the "film/video" control on the set. This is to turn 3/2 pulldown on and off when using the set's line doubler for a signal from a non-progressive player.
    Most tvs disable 3/2 pulldown options when receiving a progressive scan signal from a dvd player, so this may not even be active when using your RP56 in progressive mode.
    The set will be converting the 480p from the player to 540p, but it's 3/2 pulldown should be de-activated so you want to use the pulldown on your player, as you are already doing.
