#7790 closed patch (fixed)

Allow 2X deint with 59Hz refresh rate on Windows 7

Reported by: Jeff Lu <jll544@…> Owned by: Janne Grunau
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - Video Playback Version: head
Severity: medium Keywords: win32 59hz
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Unlike previous versions, Windows 7 won't report 60Hz refresh rate for monitors running at 59.94Hz; such are now reported as 59Hz. For MythTV, the result is an inability to use 2X deint with 29.97Hz interlaced content. Attached patch handles 59Hz as a special case, translating it to 59.94Hz.

(In [23324]) Refresh rate fixes for Windows 7 based on original patch from Jeff Lu, extended to cover all potentially affected rates.

Post 0.23 I hope to convert MythXDisplay to a cross-platform class (MythDisplay??) and remove the code duplication.

Closes #7790.
