Figured that meanwhile, too. Still comes up at 60. Beats me. I wrote a little
script for mplayer to register and set modes depending on the video so that
works for me.
Actually I got bigger problems like xv not properly working... and vmware not
working on the .39+ kernels intel needs... and debian testing being the only
dist with at leat 2.15 and otherwise being a total bitch about almost
anything.. and me not getting mplayer to apply the compressor plugins for
Actually, right now about *all* these problems could be solved by moving the
machine to Win7.
