    I am having trouble getting the dynamic refresh rate changer to work completely - it will change the refresh rate to the proper one when playing a movie, but after the video ends it seems to go to PAL@50Hz even though I have "use default refresh rate" checked.

    I think it is related to what I am placing in the text box next to the checkbox. What is the proper format of this text box please? I have tried 60, 60hz, ntsc@60, ntsc@60hz. Nothing seems to work.

    Also, a suggestion, please check the format of the enterred text - that would save a lot of confusion for people.

    Thanks -

    You need the magic text: ntsc_hz

    It's a hangover of how the settings used to work. The plugin maintainer is aware.
