Adjust refresh rate during PSE playback

Recommended Posts


pretty nice Addon!! I was also a Big Fan of Cinemavision and I do remember that there was an Option to stop adjusting refresh rate while Trailers and Bumpers were playing. 
Did I missed the setting somewhere? If not, is it planned to include this in a later Version?


thanks and regards

OK, got it working. Just add the following two files into your PSE Folder under Actions! Name you can choose whatever you like, but the extension must be „.cvaction“!

disable "adjust refresh rate":

# disable "adjust refresh rate" in KODI for now
POST: { "jsonrpc": "2.0", "id": 1, "method": "Settings.SetSettingValue", "params": { "setting": "videoplayer.adjustrefreshrate", "value": 0 } }

enable "adjust refresh rate" again:

# enable "adjust refresh rate" in KODI again
POST: { "jsonrpc": "2.0", "id": 1, "method": "Settings.SetSettingValue", "params": { "setting": "videoplayer.adjustrefreshrate", "value": 2 } }

The "disable" Action should be placed directly in the begging of PSE Setup/Sequence.
The "enable" Action should be placed directly in front of the Feature (the main movie)

Thats it. Make sure that you have enabled "Allow remote control via HTTP" in KODI Settings as described here:

I now use an external player (MPC-BE for madVR and with refresh rate switching enabled) to play all MKV files (my entire movie library is MKV only). I have Kodi set up to play all other file types and since trailers I've downloaded have always been MOV or MP4 the internal Kodi player would play those (with refresh rate switching disabled in the settings). Works perfectly for my setup.
