as the title says,
i want to get 1080p 24hz through my pioneer ax2-av-s and into my pana th46pz70.
at the moment my system through a samsung 1500 bluray will only get 1080i /50hz, the reciever being the bottleneck i believe (i think its hdmi 1.2)

would be awsome if the s350 did what i wanted!!

The version of HDMI should make no difference to the video resolution/freq support. Are you sure Blu-ray is being output at 1080i/50hz ?

Under the Sony's video output section setting the "BD ROM 1080p/24 output" to "ON" forces the player to send 1080p/24 irrespective of EDID.

as i mention in my post i have a samsung bd1400-when i play a bluray i get 1080i come up on the display and i know i can only get 50hz as when i set to 24hz i get no picture.

i was under the impression some bd players can force the 1080p /24hz picture through my reciever??

If it really is 50hz that will cause problems because most Blu-ray movies are encoded at 24 frames per seconds unlike DVD. This means player output options are 60hz or 24hz. 50hz would introduce frame rate artefacts when applied to Blu-ray movies.

1080p/24 force mode simply means the player sends this signal type irrespective of the receiving equipment being able to support it. If your AVR doesn't pass this signal to the display then it's an issue with the AVR not the player so force mode may not help. :)

Maybe a call to Pioneer tech support can help clarify what your AVR supports.

What is the video resolution set to on the amp? I think there's a pure mode which is passthrough. If it's 1080i, that might be why only 1080i from the player works.

the reciever is definatly the bottleneck- as when i connect the bluray player to the plasma screen (via hdmi) directly the player will output 1080p 24hz no problem.

if the forcethrough function of players like the pioneer fd51 wont fix this -what do they fix exactly??

Hi. :)
No force 24p mode on the Pioneers i'm afraid,the feature works fine if your display needs the signal sent forced but if connecting through an amp what cannot passthrough 1080p then the forced mode won't help. :(
All the best.

The player can only force it if it's connected to the screen direct. If you pass through an amp, it can over-ride the player.

Is the amp set to PURE for video resolution?

can seem to find a control for video resolution-i have set it to 'pure direct' -makes no difference.
