OK thank you for your replies, and I'm sorry I was unsure before exactly what this option meant, hehe. But now after testing it again I see that it does something. However it's still not working as it should on windows.
Here's what happens for me:
I have 1080/60p in Windows when I launch "XBMC.exe -fs" (see other settings below).
My Sony Bravida (24/50/60Hz capable) reports "1080p" (which refers to either 50 or 60Hz, guessing 60 in this case) in Windows and inside XBMC while browsing.
When I launch a movie (24 fps) it looks like XBMC changes the display mode a few times (the TV goes blank a few times and finally displays the "new" resolution), but after the final change the display mode is reported as 1080p on the TV, i.e. 50 or 60Hz.
However if I alt-tab out to Windows the display mode is changed to 1080/24p (the TV reports 1080/24p), just as it should (I can even see the movie playing in the background). When I alt-tab back to XBMC the TV reports 1080p again.
If I stop the movie and try the alt-tab procedure again it's back to 60Hz in Windows, the display mode isn't even change when alt-tabbing at this point.
So basically XBMC does change the display mode to the correct 1080/24p, but something is causing it to fall back to 1080/60p again.
Here are my settings:
Windows Vista Ultimate x64 SP1
Render Method: Basic Shaders (ARB)
Adjust Refresh Rate: Enabled
Use VBLANK as Clock: Enabled
High Quality Software Upscaling: Disabled
Resolution: 1920x1080 @ 60.00Hz
Vertical BLANK Sync: Enabled During Video Playback
Here's a debug log (just opening "XBMC -fs", playing a 24 fps movie and then stop and quit):
