parrydave, you need to get Windows to recognize 50Hz. After that, XBMC will be able to switch to 50Hz when appropriate if you activate the 'adjust refresh rate' option.

Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ, Wiki and search the forum before posting.
Do not e-mail XBMC-Team members directly asking for support. Read/follow the forum rules.
For troubleshooting and bug reporting please make sure you read this first.

Thanks for reply. These are the supported inputs for my screen (from screen manual)....
1920*1080i@50 Hz
720*576p@50 Hz
1280*720p@50 Hz
720(1440)*576i@50 Hz
1920*1080i@59.94 Hz/60 Hz
720*480p@59.94 Hz/60 Hz
1280*720p@59.94 Hz/60 Hz
720(1440)*480i@59.94 Hz/60 Hz
1920*1080p@24 Hz

Assuming I can get the windows side of things working, will XBMC be able to switch say between 1080p/24 and 1080i/50 or is it intended to switch between 1080p 24/25 which clearly my display doesn't support.

Thanks

The interlaced resolutions can be a problem. It's been a long time since I've tried though.

I have 720p50hz .mkv sport file, latest xbmc nightly does not change refresrate right, refreshrate is 60hz. Also that 60hz is my xbmc default rate. Why? My desktop rate is allways 50hz.

There is no problem with other file, only those 720p@50hz.
