Windows 7: custom resolusion fail ?

custom resolusion fail ?


i am trying to watch some 24p (23.976) footage of AVC HD files..
in order to watch them as fluid and natural as possible, i need to play them with
48Hz or 72Hz res, otherwise they jitter more then they should because of the 60Hz.
i did manage to tweak one of my monitors to 72Hz (the cheaper mag - see specs),
while the new HD Samsung fails.
a few people told me that with Nvidia and windows 7 those custom resolution
changes should work on many screens, there shouldn't be a problem.

i know it's possible even if the screen itself don't have a 48Hz/72Hz native.
maybe my specs don't support this?
maybe the dual monitors state makes this impossible for Nvidia?

There is also the possibility that the monitors don't support a frequency over 60hz. You could have damaged the monitor by forcing a refresh rate higher than it supports.

Going lower should not cause damage, though I've never personally attempted it.

Nor can I find any reference to anyone doing it.
Kind of unknown terrorist. My LCD tv has a feature to reduce to 24 hz for playing that type of media. I would think that low would cause flickering though, not reduce it.
