The same location you're describing to change the hardware settings tool (under the "Tools" menu) is the same for me changing the AJA Kona settings. Unfortunately, I cannot change the main output to either P or PsF (the second output might, but I wont know until Monday).

In the interim, I've found some interesting info. There's a chance my AJA Hi5 SDI to HDMI converter might actually be the problem in the link. I was under the impression that it supported both 24P and 24PsF. It apparently does not (only 24P and 23.976P, but not 23.976PsF). However, the competing Blackmagic SDI to HDMI converter does support 23.976PsF (but not 24P and 23.976P). Weird. At any rate, I've ordered the BMD converter and will be in my hands on Tuesday. For $295, I'm willing to take the risk to see if this will solve the 24p problem for the client display.

I'd actually prefer this method anyway since I'd stay native 24p monitoring and wouldn't have to add RT pulldown insertion to the output. Crossing my fingers. Apparently the BMD converter is working on many "24p capable" client displays in this exact type of scenario with MC/Symphony, so I'm hopeful.

Oh the joy.
