The latest Home Cinema Choice (February) has a review of the PS3. The review includes a strange comment about the compatibility of the Japanese machine with UK Blu-Ray discs: Slow tracking shots - a simple slow camera sweep around an apartment in Stealth, for example - exhibited an unpleasant 'stepping' effect, as scenery looked like it was being 'redrawn' in its new position, leaving a perceptible ghost image behind it... This, I assume, was a discrepancy between the Japanese machine and the UK Blu-Ray discs. The PS3 features an option to automatically match the output refresh rate to that of the software being played. However, it seems that this 'Cinema Conversion' option wasn't working, resulting in the 24fps film being forced into 60Hz PS3 playback... A combination of US machine and US Blu-Ray movie, however, worked fine. The PS3 was able to pick up the 24fps marker on the disc and playback with no such stepping or ghosting. What is the reviewer getting at - aren't all Blu-Ray discs (whether US, Japanese or European) mastered at 24p currently? Is the US player capable of 24Hz output? Joe.
