Can MCE 2005 full-screen run > 60Hz

MCE 2004 had no problem running at a refresh rate higher than 60Hz. However,
when I force the refresh rate higher than 60Hz. for MCE 2005 I get a black
screen.

Not that I know of. That's why I had to make my own post. My monitor
displays an error when the refresh rate is less than optimal (ie. 60Hz)
that's why I knew that MCE had forced the refresh down to 60Hz. But if
you'll look at my follow up post, I was able to make it work using a refresh

This has been intentional due to issues of jittering.

There was a white paper that described why the refresh rate would be forced
down to 60 hz unless you are running a sufficiently high refresh rate (I
think over 100 hz)

Lemme try to find that white paper

Thanks Jason, for the link to the white paper. This information would be
good to include in the MCE 2005 help files.
