How come the 720x576 mode added to the pool in HD576p is 50Hz but nothing else is?
576p is derived from PAL which is 50Hz - so it is 50Hz. 480p is derived from NTSC, so it's 60p. All the true HD modes (720, 1080) are standardised to run at 60Hz. As the refresh rates are all hard-coded, that's all you're going to get.
You actually have 1080i50 content to watch?
