Just thinking if WDTV PAL/NTSC makes a difference here.
I had several 23.976 fps clips but had a PAL system.
I played those clip through my laptop via HDMI was real smooth.
With WDTV (PAL) it was ok, but can see bits of choppy comparing with laptop quality.
Laptop I used Roxio player FYI
I have read that PAL version could never match 23.976 FPS clips.
Is that true?
PAL and NTSC are mostly a thing of the past now. HDTVs support mutiple refresh rates, including the 50 and 60hz of the old PAL and NTSC standards. Many recent HDTVs also support 24p playback, which relates to the problem myself and others are having with 1080/24hz playback on the WDTV. The issue is that the WDTV isn’t playing certain files smoothly at 24hz, despite playing them fine at 60hz (with 3:2 pulldown).
