I've got a series 5 - I've tried manually configuring mythbuntu to run 
at 50Hz all the time (I only watch TV through myth right now - no other 
videos etc), but the TV just flatly refuses to switch - I'm pretty sure 
when I finally got round to checking the manual it too said it only runs 
60Hz - I've certainly not seen the info in the top left say anything 
else while I've been attempting to change the resfresh rate.  Perhaps I 
should take another look at see if it supports 50Hz at lower resolutions 
- we don't watch much HD stuff at the moment anyway.
