 1920x1080 24p is the intermediate stage between 2k 60p and 1920x1080 60i-- and it looks much better than I thought it would, better than trying to jump directly from 60p to 60i-- which looks choppy that way.

I do wonder how that translates through to compressed formats though? Intraframe (individual frame) compression is one thing, but many of the broadcasting type signals use interframe (using multiple frame) compression formats. Of course, this is more important to satellite dish and cable companies where they broadcast thru a limited data pipe...
