    I'm helping a friend who wants to buy a new tv. He found one but it says something about 24p. Is it neccesery (or something like it) to have 24p?

    Heres some info on 24p, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/24p

    24p is that standard you would see in films, like in the cinema basically, at home we use NTSC which comes in at 30p/60i
    Because NTSC video comes in at 30p it has a higher framerate then 24p. So for fast moving gaming NTSC should be superior. Im guessing that tv would support both 24p and NTSC 30p so I dont think you would need to worry about 24p much. But check to be sure.

    Well considering the standard for most games is 60 FPS, 24p is actually quite inadequate.

    I cant see any modern HD tv coming in at just 24p.
