    you already have a monitor, why not get a nice size 24hz TV, bc mediaportal is designed for TV anyway?
    6 year old CRT monitor is not a good thing to develop MP on, so upgrade for the monitor is needed in any case. Also there is no room on my work desktop for an extra tv.

    You should be able to test 24hz stutter on CRT can't you?
    Have you ever seen a CRT computer monitor that supports 24Hz ?

    But I agree that the chances of finding a non-TV monitor with true 24Hz support are slim to non-existant.

    I don't think the goal is to get 24 Hz (which I believe I that many CRT can do), but 23.976 frame/s (referred to as 24p for convenience).

    I know that tourettes is keen on improving the media playback of MP towards perfection, so it needs to be able to do the "cinema" mode perfectly. I doubt that "cinema" mode was widely used in "CRT-times".

    i thought CRT could take many freq.
    Latter-day computer monitors could, but it was usually only over the 60-120Hz range - anything below 60Hz was too flickery to be usable so there was no point in supporting it.

    Remember domestic 24Hz video only arrived with Blu-ray - DVD doesn't support it, and traditionally film material was transferred to video at 50/60Hz with pull-down, so there was no interest in native 24Hz monitor/TV support until very recently.
