With TMT5 and TMT6 and a Nvidia card the refresh rate won't automatically switch from the desktop 60Hz to match the film e.g. to 24Hz. Here's a work-around
- Install 12noon Display Changer http://12noon.com/?page_id=80
- Create Desktop shortcuts for each refresh rate you might encounter. In the shortcut's properties enter this exactly:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\12noon Display Changer\dc64.exe" -quiet -refresh=24 "C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcSoft\TotalMedia Theatre 6\uTotalMediaTheatre6.exe" -Metro
To watch a movie simply drag the icon of your film from Windows File Explorer onto your new shortcut.
This makes 12noon run, sets 24Hz, then launches TMT. When you close TMT the refresh rate will switch back to the original 60Hz.
N.B. If you're running 32 bit
Windows use dc.exe
instead of dc64.exe and Program Files
instead of Program Files (x86)
Change the shortcut's name to something useful like TMT6 24Hz
and browse "Change Icon" to the TMT EXE to get the right icon.
If you need 50Hz for PAL DVDs simply create another desktop shortcut but with -refresh=50
in the properties.
- For TMT5 you need instead
"C:\Program Files (x86)\12noon Display Changer\dc64.exe" -quiet -refresh=24 "C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcSoft\TotalMedia Theatre 5\uTotalMediaTheatre5.exe"
- If TMT crashes before you close it properly then you might be left in 24HZ. Create another clean-up shortcut that just contains the following to put things straight if this happens
"C:\Program Files (x86)\12noon Display Changer\dc64.exe" -quiet -refresh=60
