OK. After doing testing yesterday, I remember what my issue was. At one
point, I was playing AVI files w/ mplayer from the FE. So if I watched a
video at 24Hz using INTERNAL, the refresh rate would stay at 24Hz after the
video ended. Then I watched an AVI w/ mplayer and the refresh rate caused
bad framerate issues. That's why I think that the refresh rate should be
brought back to the default after a video ends.
Also, JYA, you were right about the 50Hz issue on 60hZ TVs. INTERNAL did up
the refresh rate to 60Hz on my 50Hz material. I do want to thank you for
the help you've provided with this patch to INTERNAL. It's a really cool
feature and I can definitely see the difference in video playback. Thanks
