I am looking at buying the WD TV Live SMP, and after trying out a Micca media player, I learned about an issue where 23.976 material would stutter every 41.6 seconds when outputting 24Hz… This has been mentioned here as well:
“A mismatch of 23.976fps vs 24.000 fps is 1 duplicated or dropped frame precisely 41.66 seconds apart, depending on which direction we’re talking about.”
My question is, since I’ll be outputting everything at 1080p/ 60Hz to my Panasonic plasma, will this player output all framerates properly at 60Hz without frame drops or stuttering? In other words, will it apply proper 3:2 pull-down and play stutter free in 60Hz output regardless of framerate? For instance -
Will these all play smoothly at 60Hz or will there be frame drops like what was mentioned in the above link?
