Fair enough. The bottom line is that until PC hardware manufacturers take the HTPC enthusiast crowd seriously, those of us who notice frame drops will continue to deal with these issues.
For me, personally, I do not want to have to mess around with custom resolutions and clocks.... especially when different drivers, different card versions, etc, all result in different approaches to getting accurate 23.976 output.
I've upgraded the drivers on my 6450 several times and none of the driver updates have had any impact on the 23.976 playback accuracy that I have noticed.
In other news, Onkyo finally (and very quietly) acknowledged the 23.976->24.000 output bug on their 818 AVR and issued beta FW that fixes the problem.
