I don't think you would want a computer to output 24 or 30fps. Computer games is a good reason to keep the refresh at 60 Hz and not lower. You would want to be sure the display is PC capable - no overscan on the PC input.

DVD players, even the HD versions, will mainly be used for movies, I would guess, and the effective frame rate will be whatever the film was shot at. Probably 24fps, so a 60fps transfer will not help there.

Looking at the HP specs they say:
Broadcast Format Supported:1080i (HDTV), 1080p (HDTV), 480i (SDTV), 480p (EDTV), 720p (HDTV)

Although 1080p (HDTV) is supported, the ATSC 1080p spec is 30fps, so it is not clear it will support 1080p/60fps.
