    decompressing the compressed video content to generate uncompressed video content in an internal format having a frame rate of 24 frames per second (fps) comprising progressive frames of pixel image data having an original pixel resolution;

    buffering progressive frames of pixel image data in a high-capacity memory buffer supporting asynchronous random read and write access;

    processing the progressive frames of pixel image data in the buffered progressive frames to perform a frame-rate conversion from 24 fps to a higher output frame rate; and

    outputting a digital HDTV video signal configured to display the video content on an HDTV at the output frame rate, wherein the digital HDTV video signal is a progressive signal having a pixel resolution of at least 1920×
