Have you tried changing v-sync to on with the latest driver? That's apparently is the cause of the stuttering.

If you want to keep the same Windows version for a long time (how long exactly?) but also upgrade to a more recent graphics card later, be aware that later hardware may need a minimum Windows 10 version to work. For example GeForce 20 series released 09/2018 need Windows 1709 minimum someone using LTSC 2016 would be out of luck. An hypothetical GeForce 21 or 22 series may or may not work on Windows LTSC 2019.

That's interesting. My clocks are basically the same with 16/8 and 32/16, but my card is passively cooled and lower power so maybe the power management is different.

Yep, Vsync is set to on. Power is set to prefer max performance.

just based on my own experience of not having fixed it yet do you have HDR enabled or are playing back HDR content? This seems to be my sticking point at the moment.

Right now I'm running 419.67 with an RTX2060

Windows HDR is off. I'm using MPC-BE and MadVR to pass through HDR to my LG C8. Worked perfect before I upgraded to this 1660 GTX. I've tried both 419.67 and 419.35 (the only 2 drivers that support the 1660 at this point in time). They both have huge stuttering issues. It is a bit strange though, when I initially installed .35 and enabled vsync in Nvidia control panel, everything seemed fine. After a couple of reboots and various video files, the issues came back. Really frustrating!

Hoping you guys can help me get deinterlacing working better on my setup. I just ripped my Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 1 NTSC DVDs to MKV files (no re-encoding of video or audio) with MakeMKV and I'm trying to play them back with MPC-HC and madVR (using MPC-HC's internal LAV filters). I don't have much experience at all playing back interlaced content - it's 2019, after all - so bear with me.

My first problem is that I can see a lot of combing artifacts in certain spots, typically in frames with motion that come immediately after a cut: Episode 7 01:00.277, Episode 11 00:11.713.

My second problem is that deinterlacing doesn't get activated on 3 out of the 12 episodes according to marVR's OSD. These happen to be the 3 episodes that start with a cold open (straight to the first scene of the episode), rather than the usual intro sequence. If I switch the deinterlacing setting in madVR from "if in doubt, deactivate deinterlacing" to "if in doubt, activate deinterlacing," then deinterlacing is activated on all 12 episodes.

Sample clips: First 15 seconds of episode 1, Clip from episode 7 (I see a lot of combing when the guy lights the lighter)

One last thing that I've noticed is that in every sequence except for the intro sequence, I get a ton of repeated frames. In fact, when I step through the video frame by frame, every frame is repeated once.

LAV Video settings
madVR deinterlacing settings

So the best driver for pascal cards is 385.28, also works good with madvr? I'm with 382.53, thinking about goin' for 385.28.

Are you sure about this? I haven't seen any restrictions with 2xxx series (note, I don't have such card).

That's the latest one that doesn't brake lot of stuff , not necessarily the best. I wouldn't upgrade if everything works for you now, until you are bored

Well, I don't have any issues with the version I'm using, so I guess I'll stick to 382.53

Try to use ivtc (force film mode). It will not completely solve problems with combing artifacts in certain spots, but will solve the problem with the duplication of frames.

It's been a while but IIRC what I did to avoid the repeated frames issue when watching old US-DVDs was to choose 'DXVA2 native' in LAV Videodecoder.

Yeah looks like this is the answer. I didn't realize that IVTC can't be performed in the automatic mode; I thought the deinterlacer would pick up on the need for it automatically.

This is NVIDIA Profle Inspector tool with a profile file and a .bat to import that profile.

Download

Most important settings it uses:
Power management mode = Adaptive
VSync = on
GSync = off
SLI = off
Prefer NVIDIA on Optimus systems
Thanks, your profile and 419.35 GRD fixed the issue on my 1660.

So it would seem like the VSync setting isn't being respected after upgrading or with certain Nvidia driver versions..

A clean install will also wipe out any Control Panel settings.

I have used Windows 10 build 1809 but had random freezes with madvr/kodidsplayer/lavfilters.

I have an amd rx vega 56 gfx card...

Windows 8.1 is still ideal for a madVR box.

Some time ago I read a post from madshi where he wrote some disadvantages of windows 8.1, but I can't find it anymore.

Wasn't there a problem with 10bit hdr and windows 8.1?
