    Am I right to assume that a film or HDTV immage (maybe even a comp monitor) duplicates whole frames for a more flicker free image? I.E Frame 1 is identical to frame 2, then the next new frame is frame 3? Thus a 50fps signal is actually 50Hz?

    I'm not sure I understand the question. You seem to be asking if a 50fps source needs to have frames duplicated to play at 50fps, so I assume I'm not understanding what you mean.

    I'm asking if 60Hz prog scan signal is 60 FULL NEW FRAMES or just 30 NEW FRAMES and 30 duplicated.

    With interlaced it can scan one frame at 1/60th second skipping all the even numbers, then one frame at 1/60th second to scan all the even numbers, skipping the odd. Ths meaning it took 1/30th second to scan a frame. Progressive scans that frame at 1/60th second. Hence the increase in picture quality
