    Peter,

    1) As said before, you really should set your refresh rate to 50 Hz. You don't lose any quality. This argument applied to CRT Screens but LCD and LED have a different technology which is not really depending on the refresh rate anymore.
    2) The dynamic refres rate changer is required if you want to watch BlueRay material. These run at 23.97 Hz and the refresh rate needs to be adjusted. Your TV screen is capable of displaying this
    3) All other material in Europe will run at 50 Hz.

    I think it doesn't really matter which refresh rate you have, as long as you get dynamic refresh rate changer set it to the correct one when playing a video (note: lots of videos on onlinevideos have a framerate which doesn't match with 50Hz) it's fine

    Thank you guys for your help (good tip on that note Paul ;))
    I have set it to 1920x1080@50p, disabled the refresh rate changer for now and everything seems ok so far.
