Default 24FPS, 30FPS(?), 60FPS(?) and 1080 Resolution

I've heard that 1080p does not support more than 24fps. Why would we need more than 24fps in progressive mode anyway? Why is this really even a problem?

I've heard that 720p supports 60fps. Is this really useful for anything?

Only in that it matches your TV's refresh rate.

It makes a HUGE difference. 24fps is just fast enough to create the impression that a series of stills is actually full motion without constantly being able to detect the 'flash' or flicker of the individual frames. It's the standard for FILM, but is less than standard TV (30 fps). Fine for cinema, but live sports are FAST and require even more refresh (go play QUAKE 3 at 30fps and see if it doesn't bother your eyes).

The bottom line is that 1080p/24fps will be AWESOME for films, but not for live sports broadcasts. 720p/60 is still the best for that.

All that said, if you can get a 1080p set that supports 1080p INPUT, get it, since it will almost certainly support a 60fps refresh and upconverted 720p image.

720p is at 60hz since it's progressive.

I read that the Pioneer FHD1 will have 1080p@ 24, 48 and 72 Hz.
Sorry, I don't have a link.
