What many pro CRT monitors do is convert the 1080p23.98 or 24 and convert it to 1080i48. That
way you can actually see your footage but not as it was originally recorded.
Now if you are talking about a consumer 1080i TV, probably the answer is no.
A 1080i TV is a 29.97fps animal. HDTV monitors obviously can show it for edit systems, etc.
Most HDTV consumer sets for sale right now don't have tuners so the consumer monitors for sale might show 24p with the right input. When more HDTVs (with HDTV tuners) come to market you'll be able to get 18 formats, but 24p isn't one of them. http://www.atsc.org/guide_default.html might help.
[Ryan]"Is a 1080i TV capable of displaying 1080 at 24p? "
1080-24p is an acqusition format and an editing format but it's not a (common) distribution format. 24p is sometimes referred to as the universal mastering format because it can be easily converted to any of today's standards including NTSC, PAL, and Film.
P.S. Some of today's plasma screens are capable of 48Hz refresh and can therefor handle a native 24p signal displaying each discreet frame twice before moving to the next.

We took our F-900 into Ultimate Electronics last year and plugged it into their HD-Distribution amplifier. The 24P displayed properly on all of the PLASMA units, none of the CRT units and a few of the LCDs. On most of the LCDs, the picture would be squeezed to one side or another or some other wierd problem. We were looking for units to have around the studio.
My question/comment is this: I see advertising for DVD players that says "3:2 pulldown removed for that cinematic experience." If that's true, what's coming out the back of that thing? It certainly can't be 24 frame video.
Yeah, thats my question too steve. I have a high end 65 inch sony CRT HDTV, and both my dvd and tv claim to be able to remove the 3:2 pulldown and display it natively, so i'll be curious to know how this is achieved.
