CANT get 23.976 hz/fps!

Hey guys - I joined the ae4000u club back in January - and love the picture quality

My quick system specs:
ae4000u
Denon 2808 AVR
HTPC w/ Nvidia GTS 450 Video

I simply can not make the video card hit 23.976 when I try to customize it - and I have had it hooked up 2 different ways. The first was DVI to HDMI in the beginning, and now it is straight HDMI through the Denon AVR. Both ways have had the same issue.

When I set the Refresh rate on my Video card to 23Hz - I get 23.9777. When i go to CUSTOM Refresh, and try 23.976 - I get an error that it was not compatible with my display! So I have gone to 23.975 which actually gives me 23.9738 (or 23.974 rounded). So each of these options are about equidistant from 23.976 and I get roughly the same amount of dropped frames (around 6 per hour).

I know that this is not terrible - but I actually notice the lost frame every now and then, and it ruins my movie watching experience.

I have turned off the 'frame repeat' option on this projector - because I didn't like the 'soap opera' effect that it was having on the movies.

So - anyone else run into this issue with an Nvidia card? Is there a way to tweak it to 23.976 even with this error?

Also - if I simply can not get this video card to output at 23.976 - are there some options on the projector that can help me not notice the dropped frames so much? Does frame repeat look soap opera like if the refresh rate almost matches the movie?

Thanks for any insight!

PS - I notice that this thread has been 'dead' for a while - so I may post this in the main forum under a separate thread.

Re: Panasonic PT-AE4000 LCD HD Home Cinema Projector: Official Thread

Ok, so apparently I am not going to get the video card any closer than what it is now.

So I guess I need to focus on if there is something that can be done on the projector end.

There are two options I see in the manual:
Frame creation (with 3 modes)
Frame response (with normal and fast options)

Which option could possibly help with my issue WITHOUT causing the 'soap opera' affect that I am trying to avoid?
