    I think there is no such available. And adding such should be done as a callback.

    It is safer to put whole thread function inside a "try". In future if someone adds new code he/she might forgot the "try" for the new code.

    TV's usually handle both 23.976 and 24. Those both are required since for example Blu-rays can be having both fps. 29.97 and 30 is next such pair that would fail :) Why limit the 1 Hz as difference? (Math.Abs(fps - newfps) > 1 <-- does such, not wth 0.1). Basicly you would be making an assumption that if the 1st and 2nd queries produce close enough match the 1st one was correct (while it can be as much wrong as with greater than 1 hz difference). Just remove the 1 Hz check and the result are better :)

    AW: Late dynamic refreshrate changer or fps detection without mediainfo

    Hi guys I won't be able to finish this patch in the next weeks / month as my first child was born yesterday. So perhaps someone can catch my idea and finish this. Or just wait until i've some spare time again.

    Sure they can. Actually they just show 24fps in the OSD. But in fact they can handle 23.976fps and 24fps. For marketing reasons they just talk about 24fps support.

    You can see this by getting the actual HDMI information back from the display that shows detailed information about the screen setup.
