From the datasheet (www.nxp.com/documents/data_sheet/74HCT9046A.pdf) it is not clear to me what the maximum operating frequency for this phase detector is--from the enable and disable times (page 20 and figure 19) I presume 24.576 MHz is too much.

24,576 MHz is 128x192 kHz which makes essentially any divide by 2^N chip 
capable of the frequency a target. Is your reference signal also 24,576 
MHz or some other frequency?
