I was wondering on the Amazon Fire TV under the Video settings, it gives the option of 1080p50 or 1080p60. Does it matter which one you choose? My Fire TV is connected via Ethernet to my Router if this helps.

60 - more FPS is better.

Depends on the contecnt you are watching. Set it the same or you get motion jumping if there is a mismatch in the frame rate.

So for 25/50 fps content use p50, for 30/60 fps content use p60.

For 24 fps content, p60 will be a bit better, but both will look a little jumpy with some movement.

EDIT slightly OT but Apple TV has the same options, and a lot of iTunes Store movie content is 24 fps so you can't pass through the right frame rate to the TV.

Media player devices should switch the video frame rate based on the content FPS.  Otherwise non-matching frame rates will appear jerky.

Thanks all for the reply, there is a Auto setting, but have not used it in case it dropped it down to the 720p range. May try it and if not happy, just leave it at 60p.

thanks gain,
