Surely there is somebody out there with smooth 1080/24 playback

I had the 8600gt feeding my RS1. My RS1 tells me the refresh rate is 24khz (actually 48 because it doubles it). The playback is as you described very smoth but with fits of jerkyness every so often. When I feed my RS1 from my PS3 it reports 23.98 (Actually 47.96 since it doubles it). Playback is smoth as butter and never jerky. I think the desired rate is actually 23.976 by the way.
Since I could not use powerstrip to create a custom resolution (latest NVidia cards do not allow support for powerstrip - sucks) I bought a ATI 3850. Then I used one of the pre-defined 24hz resolutions built into powerstip and sure enough my RS1 reports the 47.96 refresh rate and the playback is smoth and perfect.
My conclusion: The NVidia supplied 23/24 hz rates do not match up exactly with my projector and probably many other projectors. Without support for creating a custom resolution they are not a good fit for a HTPC if you want 1080/24.
I have been very happy with my 3850 card.

Whenever you connect a computer to the hdmi socket, the EDID reports which modes it can handle. Modern tvs usually report, just as therrion said, [email protected],24,29,30,50,59,60. Trying any other timing then these reported numbers over HDMI is to my knowledge futile (diffrent story in the analog world maybe).

But the video level is still screwed up, just like all the recent Nvidia drivers. But I look in the ATI threads and see the same thing. It must be really hard for them to just put a option for video or pc video levels.

But at least there is a Reg Tweak to fix this for ATi cards

Why would one need a reg fix for ATI card ? My 3650 works beautifully with 24fps (Catalist 8.2 drivers).
I would appreciate if you can post a link to this reg fix info though -- curious what exactly it does that current ATI cards don't.
