Re: Any app to show screen frequency as a notification icon?

I think we are missing the wood for the trees.... 24 fps (or 23.976 if you want to be precise) is something that my SONY TV (and many others) has in the shape of "1080p 24" movie mode, which is for highest quality playback. See below for explanation: https://www.cnet.com/news/what-is-1080p24/ Tearin...

Re: Any app to show screen frequency as a notification icon?

Thanks for your reply! No need to be confused at all! I change the refresh rate to 24 if Im watching a movie, and to 60 if watching SD TV stuff. Auto changing the rate by the player sometimes makes my windows 7 jump out of aero for some reason, so I prefer to do it when I need to rather than automat...

Re: Any app to show screen frequency as a notification icon?

Thats ok, cause I dont want to know the resolutions, only refresh rate. I typed res in my previous post by mistake where I meant frequency, my apologies! My resolution is always fixed, its switching the refresh rate frequency between 30hz material, and 24hz movies which makes me need to know at a gl...

Re: Any app to show screen frequency as a notification icon?

It would be great if you manage to make something very lightweight that would run through EG. Basically looking to have just a little icon that would just display 24 or 60, in the clock area, so i can see what res I'm running. Dont need any ability to change stuff, any changes are setup to be done f...

Any app to show screen frequency as a notification icon?

I use EG mainly to control Zoomplayer, and for viewing I need to switch between general files with 30hz, and movies with 24hz resolutions, which means I have setup EG actions to achieve this when needed. At the moment, as a way of checking and confirming what resolution I'm running I need to open th...

Re: Have I bought the wrong IR emitter?

OP, I think what you have bought is just a repeater/extender (as the item name says). ie if your dvd player is behind cupboard doors, the receiver end of this item is left outside the cupboard, and the emitter is placed inside, and it just repeats the IR of what its receiving to the device inside, a...
