I *think* the "60Hz (fullscreen)" resolution you see is the one you had your desktop setup at when you launched XBMC.
Try setting the desktop resolution at 1920x1080@24Hz, launch XBMC and check if the XBMC reports 1920x1080 24Hz (fullscreen). I suppose it will (that's the behaviour I'm seeing) and not report the 60Hz anymore (nor the others).

Running Windows at 1280x720@50Hz. When launching XBMC I have both option 1920x1080@50 and 1920x1080@24. Choosing the 50Hz (for smooth gui) and checking the "Adjust frame rate" option does the trick for me.
I'm not at home right now so I cant check available windows settings right now.

When I choose 23hz in windows. and start XBMC it reports 1920x1080 @ 23.98 (Fullscreen) Which is exactly the framerate of movies/tvseries in HD. Runs much smoother than 24hz.
But that is the only one in the list for 1920x1080 now. And if I change to 50hz in windows, then that is the only one reported in xbmc.
I guess Auto adjust wont work if XBMC can't pick up all my refreshrates for that resolution right?

mindweaver, that's exactly my situation. I'm kind of happy of not being an isolated case.
Are you working with custom resolutions? Nvidia, ATI, Intel?
I'm with an Nvidia 8800GT.
- mindweaver - 2008-12-04 14:27
Nope, no custom resolutions since I don't need them. My TV provides all the right ones
I have NVIDIA 7100 (built in on mb)

Then I really have to wonder why some resolutions are picked and some are not. I know for sure that standard Windows applications (DirectX Games for instance) are able to select and use resolutions and refresh rates, even picking among the custom ones.

I can see more supported refresh rates (24-25-50-60) in xbmc (last svn).

I also shared a mkv sample i always use to check how smooth it runs:
when the movie goes over the objects it has to be very smooth, so no jumping objects, not even a bit. (thats what i only manage to have with the beta2)
I will try the other samples posted here when i get home.

That's a good sample for testing.
On my set up it plays perfectly using 'Adjust refresh rate' running at 1920x1080@24Hz and also without it running at 1920x1080@60Hz. It's silky smooth and there's not one dropped frame.
Like I said before, I have no idea if this is down to the graphic card or the plasma.
