Just to close the loop on the BD part of this, FWIW--

Following David's instructions above resulted in a flawless BD in the first try. Played perfect on the PS3, which should put to rest any rumors about BDMV not playing on PS3s for now.

If anyone is still reading this thread......and who has experience in burning progressive DVD-Rs, I'd be interested in your experience in playing such progressive DVDs on "non-progressive" DVD players. The reason I ask is three fold. First, someone above who certainly appeared to be well experienced and well informed said, "but the DVD [a progressive written DVD] will only play on 'progressive scan' enabled DVD players". Second, I have been burning only progressive scan DVDs for all clients for several months now, and the percentage of complaints I've been receiving about non-compatibility with their players has not increased over when I was producing only interlace format DVDs - and in connection with this, I was testing my DVD-R production for a while (I quit, because I always got the same results! - duh)) on two "non-progressive" players, one switchable, and two progressive units (in the guise of BD and HD-DVD) and all the progressive DVDs played on all the players except one interlaced format player. Third, which naturally leads me to the third query, dear reader - WHAT AM I MISSING - is this all an accident, and am I seriously missing the point, and succeeding in spite of myself?

By the way, I just purchased an EX-1, specifically to work only (from start to finish) in progressive, and now that Sony has evidently repaired a back focus issue as well as can be for the moment, my next heavy experimentation will be testing out various formats such as 1080 30p, 1080 24p, 720 60p, etc. to see what might give the best overall appearance in primary subjects with only moderate speed movement (to avoid the rolling shutter issue) - I suspect, from what I've read elsewhere that my favorite format will be 720 60p.

While I strong recommend producing DVD from progressive sources, particularly 24p, there is no such thing as a progressive only DVD. DVD are ALL interlaced, and 24p sources are encoded to DVD with 3-2 pulldown (24 over 60i -- this is how features are produced.) This is why the customer complaints for compatibility have not increased with you progressive source, you are always delivering 60i. The advantage of 24p in 60i, is it widely compatible for interlaced and progressive presentation. All a progressive scan DVD player is doing is looking for the 24p cadence and reconstructing the full frames on progressive outputs (improving the resolution on HD screens.)
