In any case, hats off to the original poster. This, if working correctly, provides, for the time being, the best of both worlds (even though... I'm curious to see what happens with the "autoswitch to 60Hz" problem I'm having. When I exit XBMC the refresh rate goes back automatically to what it was at the desktop level, I wonder if this will happen for the external player too, while XBMC is sitting in background).
I'll experiment tonight. For now, thanks for the effort!
