Hello,

I would like to report an issue I get while using the 'Adjust display refresh rate to match video' functionality playing a 24p movie through my AV receiver Onkyo TX-NR905.

My desktop refresh rate is set on 60Hz, when I start to play a 24p movie my receiver just failed to accept the refresh rate change triggered by XBMC, and the display remain brack, with no sound. I can stop the playback and come to XBMC GUI again. If I do the same with a 25Hz encoded movie, it work fine, and diplay it at 50Hz. If I change the desktop refresh rate to 24Hz, it work fine for the 24p movies, but fail on the 25Hz movie ... and the XBMC interface is not so smooth of course.

Now if I try this connecting my HTPC directly to my TV Samsung UE55H7000 and work great ... but of course I don't have the sound on my HiFi!

So the problem seems to be around an the way the frequency swith is triggered by XBMC and my AV received who don't like it.

Here are are all the details about my configuration:

1. Version of XBMC: 13.1
2. Windows Version: Windows 8.1 64bit
3. CPU/Architecture: Intel Core i3 530
4. RAM amount: 4GB
5. Detailed Instructions to reproduce the Problem: See above
6. Details of all devices relevant to the problem: HTPC -> Onkyo TX-NR905 -> Samsung UE55H7000 (all HDMI)
7. FULL Debug Log: http://xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=258826

1. Video Card and Driver version: AMD Radeon HD5450 driver 14.100.0.0
2. Audio device in use: AMD HDMI driver 6.3.9600.16384
3. MediaInfo output http://pastebin.com/wR97tTgJ


Thanks in advance for your help!

In Picture Quality menu, I have Picture mode set on 'Auto' Other choices are Video or Film and I tested them with no improvement.
All the other options here are set on 'Off'.

In Monitor Out menu, I have HDMI Monitor set on 'Main'. And Resolution set on 'Through'. I tested it also on 1080p but no improvement.
