1080P24 scaling from Netflix

Is 1080P24 scaling from Netflix new?

My three Minis and Roamio Pro are all scaling to 1080P24 now. As soon as a Netflix video starts streaming, the output switches to 1080P24 and stays there. Even if it's playing an SD bitstream or 720P bitstream, the output is staying at 1080P24. As soon as the video stops playing and you go back to the netflix menu, it goes back to 1080P60 output on my Roamio Pro and goers back to 1080i output on my Mini.

The last time I messed around with this, it would only output 1080P24 after it ramped up to the 1080P bitstream. but now both the Roamio and Mini are scaling to 1080P24 when playing back the Netflix steam.

I haven't tried it with any of the other apps yet.

As far as I recall on mine, my tv always switched to 1080P24 the instant I started a Netflix stream...even if it was stuck in 480P or 720P. My Samsung TV can be kinda slow during the switch, that's how I notice it.

Then maybe it's not new. But then I don't know why they still have pass though listed in the options. Since it is scaling it to 1080P24 now not passing through. Any SD show I play will output in 1080P24 now. I just know when I checked before this was not the case. But the last time I checked was a few months ago.

The Netflix app on the Roamio has always supported it. The Netflix app on the Minis has supported it since it got the new Netflix app.

The Netflix app on the Roamio has always supported 1080P24 pass through but not 1080P24 scaling. Neither of my Roamios scaled to 1080P24 before. WHen Netflix was playing SD resolutions in the past it would not output 1080P24. It would scale it to 1080P60 or 1080i, 720P etc,
Although I had not checked it in a while. So it sounds like this has been around awhile. Somehow I missed it then because that is a big deal. Very few devices scale Netflix to 1080P24. That is what many people want but so few devices do it. They will typically just output at 1080P60.
