Didn't know why that was, so thanks for that info. I agree, 8 seconds over a 2 hour movie would clearly be unnoticeable. LOL.
Don't understand why it's retarded though. ??

I think Blu-rays are smarter actually.
NTSC used to run at 30 fps (60Hz) but when colour was introduced it was slowed down by 0.01% to 29.97 fps (59.94 Hz). This results in 24 fps movies being slowed down to 23.976 fps.

Okay and does that mean that Blu-ray does or does not have that slow down?
No there is no slow down.

Blu-ray films are stored at native frame rate (24p).

It is up to the player and/or TV settings to handle any differences.

It is only standard DVD and any other legacy NTSC formats (VHS, Laserdisc) that have the slight framerate difference.
