I may try to make sense of your problem because it's not very clear:

you are saying that 1080/24 mode gives a message that it's not supported by WDTV - I assume the message is by your TV and not WDTV, since if WDTV diden't suppret this mode, it wouldn't be available, right?...so your TV probably doesn't support 24p...which TV is it?

when you restart, WDTV never goes to 1080/24 but to auto mode, that's why you think 24p is working - WDTV asks the TV what is the best mode to use when it restarts...AUTO mode doesn't adjust the refresh according to the fie you're trying to play but to what TV reports as the optimum refresh/refresh via the EDID protocol...

to make things simple: don't use 24Hz mode because your TV cannot take it, use 60Hz at all times...

You will see the difference in medium speed to fast camera pans...60Hz stutters whie 24Hz does not...look closely...

however, LG TVs are known not to handle 24p correctly i.e they do take the signal but convert it to 60Hz...

    It's all about the polygon count!
I think that only very expensive TV's can handle 1080P24Hz... I use that mode on my Samsung LE32A336 and it works but my TV isn't even Full HD. So downscaling, and I'm unsure if my TV support 24Hz. Oh well.'

BTW, first post, hello to everyone! ;)
8GB Sandisk USB Memory + Apple USB Ethernet adapter -> WDTV(FW: WDLXTV 0.5.6.1) -> HDMI(1080P, 24Hz mode) to Samsung LE32A336, Toslink to JVC TH-SW9, LAN to switch to computer with 1TB + 500GB discs and a NFS Server
