Thanks for the update.  I have cycled through the ANY field and there are
other rates listed, so I guess that means it's working.

I read a lot of posts on LCD TVs before I bought mine.  I know they don't do
120Hz input (totally agree about the "Marketing Double Talk"), but I got
this one because it can take 24Hz (or 23.971Hz) input.  I was looking for
something that would work well with BluRay.  I'm pretty happy with the setup
too.  PS3 BluRay looks fantastic.  Can't wait to try some other video and
see what it looks like.  Thanks!
