I have my first real setup for HD viewing.
I recently purchased a Panasonic 50 inch plasma and a Foxconn A3700 nettop (AMD E-450 apu)
It took ALLOT of googleing to figure out how to calibrate my TV and AMD video drivers to get rid of Overscan/Underscan and use the desired refresh rates, but, I eventually got there.
I was kind of hopping that 24P was the best viewing experience available but I was disappointed.
24P (really the Panasonic runs at 48 Hz) has a noticeable flicker.
So is my choice Flicker Or Judder?
24P and flicker or 60P and judder?

The TV is it at the 120HZ? people have trouble from what I read....

Yeah 48Hz is rough. I would chose 3:2 pulldown.
On my Samsung Plasma it is 96Hz, but turning on that mode noticeably hurts the black level. I have gotten to the point I just deal will pulldown for that reason.
