Will Sagem do 48hz?

Wanted to know whether anyone had tried the sagems @ 48hz which is perfect for watching ntsc film.

If not how much judder do you experience at 50hz?

Or will a combination of reclock and 50hz achieve good results here for ntsc film (3:2 pulldown)?

48 views and no responses :(

anyway my HD56 arrived today .....what a beast of a tv for the money.

was initially quite dissapointed when my dvd's through my pio dv444 looked pretty avg as i thought the sagem would upscale it better.....however dvd's play through the htpc with dscaler gave some incredible results. guess my old player aint upto it now.

1080i ts with IVTC through dscaler is out of this world on this set.....incredible :thumbsup:

ps2 looks like ass even with monster component cables but i half expected this......xbox looks pretty cool in 720p, can only imagine the 360 looking really great on this tv.

will try and get some screenshots in the next few days.

as some one waiting for delivery of the sagem 56" I would love to see some screen shots and any info you can provide about your HCPC setup would be great.

Cheers

Same here with my Liteon Dvd player, component looked no good at all from it, but my PC gives great results (1280 x 720 into DVI).

here's a couple of pics which don't do the tv any justice at all - not the best camera .....or cameraman :) first clip 720p & the second 1080i.

1280x720 is a great res for htpc, with my x300 i got a fair bit of overscanning (half the start bar and the clock gone) but with a x1800xt it looks pixel perfect to me.

dapex what do you want to know?? got a smallish lian-li full atx case inside the tv cabinet running a 3700+ sandiego @ 2.7ghz + x1800xt running dvi.
