Currently, I've setup the output to 720P at 60Hz. Before it was set on
1080i at 50Hz. With this change I didn't had to restart VDR and changes were
made instantly. I can only watch some FTA HD channels like Arte HD, BBC
HD, Axine HD, Luxe TV HD and the ones from my provider (Canal Digitaal NL)
and I didn't encounter any problems with viewing.

Concerning viewing, I'm not sure if they broacast in 50Hz or 60Hz. But
again, I got not problems when viewing several HDTV channels.

I only watch using the HDMI port (my LCD-TV only has one HDMI input) on
the eHD. Normal viewing (read : X-session) is done using the regular
Analog output on my graphics card. So I can't really anwser your question
