On an unrelated note, is anyone else experiencing the mouse cursor on top of the video window? After every video is started the mouse cursor is shown dead center on the screen on top of the video window, when playback ends it returns to dead center on the Kodi interface. I am using MadVR to do the display rate switching. I was hoping the latest build would fix this issue.

Do not use madVR to do the display mode switching. You will encounter freezing and other issues depending on your hardware. The easiest way to do this is to disable the radio button under display modes. I also find lip-sync is better when Kodi does the refresh rate switching. aracnoz has mentioned display mode switching is not as reliable as it should be. But it won't be fixed for some time. For now, you should let Kodi handle this task.

I am not seeing the mouse cursor. This cursor will only appear if the mouse was used minutes before the video is started. Otherwise, it should be invisible. Kodi is best controlled with a remote, so perhaps your keymap could be improved to limit your use of a mouse. Almost any command or window can be mapped directly to a remote key. The ghost mouse is not a mistake; Kodi is designed to be used with a remote. The cursor is a reminder the mouse is still active.

I will try letting Kodi handle the refresh rate switching. As for the mouse cursor, I don't use a mouse to control Kodi and mouse and touch screen support is disabled in the settings. The only mouse attached to the HTPC is a trackpad on my wireless keyboard that is turned off except when I need to mess around behind the scenes. It is almost as if the video window loses focus when the refresh rate is switched similar to what happens when you click on a second monitor and then move the mouse cursor back over the video window. I have a feeling that these two issues are linked and switching to Kodi's refresh rate switching may solve things.
