I have this Sony BDP in my bedroom, hooked up to a Philips 19" HD TV.

In the manual it has settings for DVD upscaling as follows:

[DVD-ROM 24p Output]
[Auto]: Outputs 1920 × 1080p/24 Hz
video signals only when connecting a
1080/24p-compatible TV using the
HDMI OUT jack.
[Off]: Select this when your TV is not
compatible with 1080/24p video signals.


The underlined "Off" is what the manual refers to as the typical (default) setting. Surely this is a mistake in the manual?

Why would you NOT want the player to upscale DVD content to 1080/24p if you have a HD TV?

It would be set to off as default, otherwise if someone bought this and connected it up to a TV that was not compatible with 1080/24p video signals, they would get no picture at all.

At least here, those who have a TV that is compatible can change the setting.
