But what is the last video you tried to play ?

If you set the refresh rate to "Auto" it will set your screen refresh
rate to the framerate of the last video played

I'm in Australia and all my recordings are at 50Hz. I do have it set to
auto, and after playing any recording Myth automatically sets it to
1080p at 50Hz, and it stays there from then onwards.
But the GUI doesn't seem to recognise my 60Hz setting upon startup since
the update described. I liked this setting for a really smooth GUI
experience (not just in Myth but all programmes). At 1080i I seem to get
those awful deinterlace-style lines through the Myth GUI, which only goes
away after playing the first recording. Once I close Myth, my display
reverts to 60Hz for all other programmes.
