It would be great if this list was actively maintained and made a sticky.
This gives (24/2) * 5 = 60 fields/sec so 24 fps film transfers to 60 fields/sec for interlaced video. I'm HT noobish at this point but I love tech stuff, so fill me in...? Then they use a trick called 3:2 pulldown which adds an extra field every frame so that 2 frames generate 5 fields.

This Firmware Update also resolves all previous disc- playability issues.
- This Firmware Update adds improved playback of the 20th Century Fox movie in the BD tile "Jumper".
If I read about about another US player working/not working with 50hz in another thread/somewhere else on the web I will update the list. The European Samsung Blu-ray players output content at whatever rate they are encoded at. 50hz content gets output at 50hz, 60hz content gets output at 60hz, 24hz content gets output at 24hz if you have 24hz output enabled in the player (for if you have a 24p compatible TV). Blu-ray players that reliably play multi/no region Blu-ray discs without trouble? The US PS3 (and other players listed in the "don't work" section of the list above) won't play discs encoded as region free (eg. But PS3s using the most recent firmware are supposed to be able to skip 50hz content so that you should be able to play the 24p content if there is any on the disc.
edit: Though it looks like I missed a few posts above. The US Samsung players do the same as the above except for any 50hz content on the Blu-ray disc, they output it in 60hz instead of 50hz. (For example, it's my understanding that the PS3 refuses to read any disc with PAL content even if the film itself is region-free 1080P.) I don't know of a list of multi-region US players that would play a disc coded only for regions other than A. Though this doesn't help the people who want to watch the 50hz Blu-ray content, particularly if the entire disc is encoded at 50hz (which is the rate for a lot of European content). According to Penton-Man, the PS3 firmware version 3.0 skips any 50hz content (though this won't help for discs that are correctly encoded entirely 50hz, or if you wanted to watch any of the 50hz content on a disc that also had 24p content.). So for these US Pioneer players, if there is 50hz content on the disc, do they: 1) Always output the 50hz content at 50hz 2) Convert any 50hz content to 60hz and output at 60hz 3) Give the option to output 50hz content at either 50hz or 60hz Thanks.
That's also why runtime are often 'lesser' than US on home video.
Altought most of the HD stuff in 1080i/50hz are either Shows and Tv Shows that have been shot natively like this.
This update includes all previous fixes and improvements. This update version improves playability in the following BD discs.
SLEEPING BEAUTY WALL-E BURN NOTICE Season 2 THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT THE FULL MONTY Neil Young Archives CLONE WARS HISTORY OF THE WORLD - This Firmware Update improves playback of BD movie titles recently released by 20th Century Fox such as "The Happening," "Young Frankenstein," and recently released "James Bond" titles.
This is a thread to list all US Blu-ray players and whether they are compatible with 50Hz Blu-ray content (eg. Usually this means 1080/50i, which could contain either 50i interlaced content or 25p progressive content.
