    Have a problem with refresh rate changes under Windows 7. If I play a 50hz MKV or watch TV (PAL) when MediaPortal tries to switch resolutions the screen goes black. If I hit ctrl-alt-del it comes back. I can navigate back to menu in MediaPortal etc.

    If I switch renderer to VMR9, it looks like its switched refresh rates but it hasn't. It sticks at 60hz but I still have picture.



    If I exit full screen from PediaPortal using alt-enter then window is black. Only top menu is usable.

    Any ideas?! Always worked in VIsta x64.

    BTW: This is same with resolutions vice versa. ie, if I already have the refresh rate at 50hz before I start MP, I can watch TV and PAL MKVs no problem. If I watch an NTSC mkv it tries to switch and goes black.

    Ive read that doesn't work very well at all here:

    https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/518107-post824.html

    hopefully this will get fixed soon! This is the best feature of MediaPortal I think. in the UK having 50hz TV and 23.98 Blu-rays is a pain without this feature working. I imagine its the same in many European countries.
