It's a matter of what you care the most for...
Personally, I am more sensitive to judder, than the resolution,
especially at the distance I sit from the TV.
If your TV only accepts 1024x768 @ 60Hz, watching BD rip , few channel
torrent show often encoded at 23.976fps is going to create judder with
a monitor at 60Hz.
So for me, I think it is more important to get the refresh rates right
than the resolution.
For me the choice was easy, my 46" TV is both a 1920x1080 panel, and
it supports all known refresh rates.
With your panel you have to make compromise in either the resolution
or the refresh rate.
If you only watch FTA TV, then 1024x768 @ 60 or 50Hz is going to be
the best solution. letting myth do the upscaling/downscaling and the
When trying to watch 1920x1080/24p media, set your TV to that mode...
Currently, you can't configure mythtv to change to a particular
resolution based on the refresh rate ; the profiles are all based on
the resolution only.
Otherwise thing you could do is if trying to watch content at 24/23Hz
, then automatically swtich to 1920x1080 mode at that refresh rate as
your tV supports it.
