In this case, I think the confusion is that I used "24 Hz" in my note, which is what is displayed when setting the output frame rate to the monitor on the RED LCD setup display for the camera.
I'd really expected to see 1080p24 instead of 1080p 24 Hz (I don't have my Scarlet in front of me, but that's what I remember).
But a monitor can display many different frame rates like 1080p60, 1080p24. Some older monitors are limited in what they can display and will fail if you send them 1080p60.
Pretty much all of them work with 1080p24 though - as that's a progressive BluRay format (or, more correctly, 1080p23.976).
Which is one reason I think there may be an issue with the new 1080p24 output, as any monitor should be able to handle that - and my Black Magic capture device is designed to handle that frame rate, as well as many others, but ... not 1080p60 unfortunately.
As ?most? of us still shoot at 23.976, it would be nice if the camera would output 1080p23.976, as if we are recording this with a 3rd party capture device, the audio and video would match the frame rate that we using to record the R3D's.
BTW - I'm not sure this is correct, but it occurred to me that previously, when you'd record at 23.976 and it would output at 1080p60, this would require some processing, to translate between the frame rates.
So, maybe ... just maybe ... outputting at 1080p23.976 would require less processing power if you were also recording at 23.976.
Epics have power to spare, but ... Scarlet's could certainly find a use for spare CPU cycles - and the camera might run cooler (a cheap and immediate - although maybe not noticeable) version of the power management that everyone seems to want.

I'm having issues with my Side Handle. I upgraded my Scarlet to 3.2.13 and lost all controls and the lcd on the handle. None of the buttons do anything and the lcd doesn't show anything. The only thing that still works is the RedVolt.
I tried going back to 3.0.0 but the side handle is still dead.
Any idea what this is about?
I did already. Thanks.
