    Can anyone explain to me what exactly 24p is and if all TV's have this function?

    It's the frames per second count. Most people advocate setting transcodes to this.

    Interesting to know if this is the case in Europe and the PAL based regions as well ??

    This is way to hard.

    Regarding the TV part, I think most decent TV's nowadays can display at least 50 frames per second. The newest Sony Bravia's and Samsung's can do 200 frames per second.

    Unless a TV uses a multiple of 24 Hz for its refresh rate, you won't be able to take true advantage of 24p. Also, just because a TV has a refresh rate that is a multiple of 24 Hz does not mean it will actually display 24p properly. For instance, there are many 120 Hz LCD TVs out there. However, a lot of them will not do 5:5 pulldown (where each frame is repeated five times so that the effective refresh rate is 24 Hz). Even if they will do 5:5 pulldown, you have to disable the motion processing feature to get it (this is the feature that most people think is 120 Hz, though it's actually frame interpolation).

    If the TV doesn't offer something along the lines of 4:4 or 5:5 pulldown, then it's converting the 24 frames to 30 frames (3:2 pulldown).
