Alright. Thanks! I did not know that it was two separate issues. Sorry.
Nice that you've got this one fixed.
Let's just hope they can fix so that it picks up all resolutions and refresh rates

It's fixed! Atleast for me it works now
The fix is in SVN 17140.
I have a feature request though. Some manual settings in guisettings or advancedsettings where I can decide which refresh rates to use.
Because my TV accepts both 24hz and 23.98hz. And with the adjust refresh rate option set xbmc chooses 24hz for 24p movies. I would like it to choose 23.98hz since it is more accurate and runs muchs smoother.

That is why I wrote "feature request"

What refreshrate you are running your XBMC GUI? I ask because I noticed a strange thing. I used to run XBMC GUI at 50Hz. Running 24fps movie caused switching to 24Hz for me and playback was smooth. But running PAL movie made no refreshrate switch and wasn't smooth at all!! I struggled but had an akward idea. I switched my XBMC GUI to 60Hz (I have almost no NTSC material) and tried playing PAL and 24fps. And guess what. It seems that after switching refresh rate (at least for me) the playback is smooth. Without refreshrate change the playback stutters even if refreshrate matches the fps of the movie. So for me the key point was to change refreshrate - after change is made everything is smooth.
I was thinking if you have your GUI set to 48Hz, maybe that's causes jerkiness even tho refreshrate matches movie fps...

I was waiting for Jester to post an updated external player build. I'll try tonight.
dpassent, what you are suggesting is to keep the GUI at 60Hz allowing XBMC to switch to either 48Hz or 50Hz automatically? Is that what you are doing now? When you go back to the GUI it switches back to 60Hz?
- dpassent - 2009-01-19 15:35
yep... exactly... switching to another refreshrate was a key to smoothness in my case... the switch has to be made to make playback smooth.

I have my GUI in 60hz also and switching to 50hz for PAL and 24hz for 24p works fine.
My only wish now (related to this) is a setting to make it switch to 23.98hz for 24p which is a better match. I hope they respond to the ticket
