    Hunts you don't change 50hz to 60hz. Off board processors and certain DVD players have this ability to get round compatiblity issues, but this conversion almost always introduces a degree of "judder" to the image and serves absolutely no benefit in terms of picture quality (unless you find the 60Hz refresh more acceptable despite the judder!). What the panel does do is actually convert 50Hz into 100Hz anyway! (60Hz signals remain at 60Hz).

    If you wanted to carry out more advanced tweaks of your screen you would need to invest in a dedicated video processor (search: Lumagen, Cinemateq, iScan, Crystalio) which would then take over deinterlacing and scaling duties from your screen, and other functionality including frame rate conversion. This ain't cheap though...
