I have personally never seen a 50hz TV, but considering how the refresh rate of TV's work, you should have NO issues.

The refresh rate (the ##hz) of the TV just controls how smooth the image looks. (ex: When playing a action game, the image will be smoother with a higher refresh rate)

Ok if you have a HD or HD Ready tv it will play up to about 80hz HD  Ready or 100hz for a HD.

If you have a dreamcast or ever owned one you would see the difference (i owned 2 tv's one 50hz one 60hz)

on a 50hz tv at 60hz games will look grainy black and white with the image jumping, or you will just get a grey screen but as said before if you have a HD or HD Ready tv your tv plays 60+ hz so you have nothing to worry about, if your tv really was 50Hz it wouldnt have a HDMI slot
