[mythtv-users] HD output at 50Hz

Hi All,

I was wondering whether anyone's had any success getting 50Hz HD
output from a mythtv box? I haven't tried for a while (everything's
otherwise working well, don't want to risk breaking it), but I tried
some 50Hz modelines a while ago (using VGA) and my display didn't
particularly like it (bits were all over the place on the screen).
60Hz seemed to work ok, but that's not much good when I'm playing back
1080i at 50Hz.

I'm in Australia, and it seems like a VGA card with component output
(So I know my display will sync properly to it) is going to cost over
$200, which I'd like to avoid. I'm using an Geforce FX 5200 at the

So yeah, my question is whether anyone has some sort of 50Hz component
output working, even if it's just 576i?
