Any type of attempt to toggle the 24p alternative from off to on gets this confusing message– “Please select 24p(4K)/ 24K outcome to “24p” or “24p(4K)” in Arrangement”. There’s actually no justification for language like that on a product that declares to be ‘wise’. I needed to do the cardinal sin of exiting the movie making the setting adjustment.
Shades, comparison and also information are all toughness throughout 12 Years A Servant on 2D Blu-ray, with not a jagged side or motion artefact in sight.
