I'm very comfortable with configuration and tweaks for using HTPC to watch Bluray or MKVs from bluray (all 24p material). In fact I really just have my HTPC configured perminately at 23Hz in the ATI/AMD CCC.
However, when it comes to watching TV on an HTPC with the likes of a Ceton USB tuner.... what refresh rate do people use when watching live TV?
As far as I know... live shows are 29.97 FPS like news, sports, and various other video based content, but movies on TV are film, so is it possible that changing channels from CNN news to HBO would mean the content goes from ~30 fps to ~24 fps by simply channel surfing?
If so, how do people deal with proper refresh rates when viewing TV? Does TV viewing send ~30 fps regardless of source material in which case when Windows Media Center is launched... I should just lock in @ 29.97 FPS ?
I'd like to avoid having to use 'adjust display refresh to match video' within XBMC when I go from TV viewing to XBMC library for movies as the change in refresh rate is always problematic.
