Does the DTV standard include 24fps video?

    If this is true, I'm wondering if any DVD and TV manufacturers have plans to include this video mode in their products in the near future so that we can do without the whole 3:2 pulldown nonesense.

    Hey fella . . . I bet you're still livin' in your parent's cellar . . . downloading pictures of Sarah Michelle Gellar . . . and posting "Me too!" like some brain-dead AOL-er . . . I should do the world a favor and cap ya' like Old Yeller . . . you're just about as useless as MPEGs to Hellen Keller.

    Yes, it does, but you definitely don't want to watch 24fps on your TV! The flicker would be maddening. 50Hz PAL is bad enough.
    Ideally, you'd frame triple to 72fps, but no TVs that I know of will handle this refresh rate.
    And before you ask why the flicker in the theater isn't maddening, that's because each frame is held for nearly 1/24th of a second. You can't do that on a CRT.

    The shutters in theater projectors actually flash each frame at the screen 3 times, for an effective frame rate of 72fps. This is fast enough to eliminate flicker.

    I'm pretty sure that Loewe includes 3:2 pulldown on several of their HDTV-ready sets. I'm almost positive that they include it on their new 38" direct-view 16:9 HDTV-ready set. (see www.ecoustics.com for the 38" Loewe Aconda). Loewe image quality is superb.
