After a lot of testing, I found the reason for my delay issue.

I should not try to watch a video in boredom while having a D3D11 game in the background, waiting for a long process to finish. Not even when it's minimized down to the task bar.

Without any GPU-competing application, madVR appears almost immediately, and D3D9 overlay is fine for the basic videos and hardware I have.

Great news, I thought it was a strange issue.

had another look at my delay, yeah so I forgot to mention that all my disks are spun spun down to save power / reduce heat so spinning them up when i play a movie adds to my delay.

doh...

I have a 103" 2:35:1 screen, and my projector can crop the black bars, and some of the top/bottom/side content, so i can have the same image on 16:9 or 2:35:1 films:


Is it possible to do something similar with madVR?

yes.
device -> "device name" set to digital projector
-> screen config
and processing -> zoom control

Hey all, I have what I hope is a simple question. I'm now on a 4K LG OLED and I have the gamma set to BT.2020. What should I set for gamma in madvr to match that? I know this is total newbie land here but I'm still learning about the 4K world. Thanks!!!

bt 2020 is not a gamma curve it is a colorspace a "gamut".
no screen can show it not even professional ones.

if you don't have calibration equipment leave it at default.even if you select something like DCI P3 which is nearly doable on these screen you wll not get DCI P3.

That's what I get for doing things from memory and not looking. You are correct, that's colorspace.

Gamma: BT.1886

That is what I meant to say.

12 bit RGB not sticking

This isn't a madVR problem specifically I think, but I encounter it when using madVR with resolution switching. Anyone else use RGB 12 bit for 4K 23.976 with Nvidia card and have a problem getting the 12 bit to stick. Works fine if I leave in 23.976, but when switching between 23.976 and other refresh rates like 60 every once in awhile RGB for 4K 23.976 switches back to 8 bit, which of course screws up HDR until manually toggling back to 12 bit.

Yes, this is a known issue with current Nvidia drivers.

Try 382.53 or 385.28.

edit: It doesn't have to mess up HDR though, my LG OLED (C7) handles 8 bit HDR even better than 10 bit HDR (less banding, madVR's dithering is better than the TVs - or something).

I'm seeing the same with 8bit on my C8. Working very well with HDR.

that't a gamma choicen on the black level of a display a oled should respond with a 2.4 gamma in that setting but they obviously don't do that.

but no matter what you change as a gamma setting there is nothing to change in madVR.

Thanks. I know 8 bit HDR is technically supported but I thought it wasn't recommended. For some reason image goes mostly pink when sending RGB 8 bit HDR to my JVC projector. Good to know it isn't caused by a limitation of 8 bit HDR.

Yes, I think that is due to the projector not handling it correctly, because all HDR capable hardware players output 10+ bits, rather than a limitation of HDR itself. You do need good dithering to avoid banding with 8 bit HDR content, something that does not live through compression (like the HEVC on a UHD bluray) but does for madVR's output or video games.

Interestingly I do not measure a notable difference between my LG C7's 2.4 and BT.1886 settings, but they are not exactly pure power 2.4 near black either (it actually rises slower, I think to make shadows look very deep). The 2.2 setting is pretty close to 2.2 though.

Good to know thanks. Like I said I'm still learning on this 4k stuff so I'll probably ask a bunch of stupid questions while I get it dialed in. Thanks for your patience!

It's not caused by a limitation of 8bits HDR, it's a bug in the JVCs.

The only thing you need to do to get the JVC to work with HDR 8bits, as reported a few times, is to disable "Send HDR Metadata" if using passthrough, or use the HDR to SDR conversion wiht Pixel Shader.

The magenta bug in the JVCs is far worse with recent nVidia drivers. It's only at 4K60p with 385.28 while it's all 8bits modes with the more recent ones. So it could be nVidia rather than JVC.

Couple questions about optimizing madVR

I'm trying to optimize madVR playback to avoid dropped and repeated frames. I *think* this boils down to subjects:

1) are there any obvious background processes that one should disable for a dedicated HTPC? I can't be sure that this is part of the problem, but I'm guessing it certainly wouldn't hurt.

2) My HTPC desktop runs at 3840x2160 23.979 (nVidia 1060 driver v385.28, running Kodi DSPlayer) so I don't have to change resolution (and experience HDMI handshake with my JVC projector) when playing movies.

I cannot get it to run at 23.976. I've tried custom resolutions specifying 23.976 to no avail. I've been told that only Intel graphic cards will do 23.976. If this is true, I will have to live with a frame repeat every so often and so be it, but can someone confirm?

Thanks in advance.

1. shouldn't affect repeated dropped frames.

2. read this: http://madvr.com/crt/CustomResTutorial.html
getting 23.976 is not the point of this.
