by default. That means you have to set both Nvidia driver and the projector to RGB 0-255
Forget about YCbCr, madVR can't output it. YCbCr is for Arcsoft TMT, PowerDVD players (BDP-like).
LAV video: use default settings, only set CUDA there.
Nvidia driver: use search for Nvidia custom profiles (23,976; 24; 50; 59,940), HQ de-interlace option and RGB sticked fix. Don't ask me about these, I'm an ATI guy.
I have MadVR + LavFilters + FFDshow + MPCHC installed and setup (took a full sunday before getting it right).
I have the same projector only in Europe it is called JVC DLA X30
Nvidia GTX560Regarding the settings above they are not right if you want the correct video levels.
Actually MADVr treats video levels in a very strange way (converting back and forth...can never be good for final result).
The correct and most untouched chain would be
Video (BR recorde in 4;2;0, 16-235) -> MadVr 16-235 -> NVidia 16-235 -> Projector; Input Standard (16-235 w BTB & WTW preserved)
But this will NOT
work with MadVr.To get the right video levels the following needs to be set:* MadVr: 0-255* NVidia:
- Display - adjust desktop colour settings - Digital colour format = RGB
(YCbCr4:4:4 seems to work just as fine though, but when changing it is hard to get it to stick...i had to change 2 time to get it to stay at RGB. Easiest way to check is to force the projector to ColourSpace RGB and see that the colours are ok)- Video - Adjust video colour settings: Select "With the video player settings"* Projector:
- HDMI - Input = "Super white".
NOTE! Selecting RGB here WILL WASH OUT BLACKS. Selecting Standard will clip white to early allready below 235 (not above as it should)- HDMI - Colour space (should be called colour format) = Auto
(works just fine since both Y:Cb:Cr and RGB works, it doesnt matter if Nvidia fiddles with the colours.)- Picture - Advanced - Colour space = STANDARD
(everything else is wrong since BR is not recorded with a wide gamut)
Still, I can not get "cheese slice" test videos to play well in interlaced. The veritcal lines flicker and the moire pattern looks like crap.
That part actually worked a lot better with a Radeon HD5770 and MPCHC without any addon software.
But when changing from ATI to Nvidia I got tearing and a very stuttering image.
The video is soft now and looks good ...but it did before as well with the AMD and no extra fiddle and black screen when closing MPCHC aso.....
So IMO the video round ends as follows
Nvidia (new card) vs ATI (old card) = 0 - 1
I can just imagine what todays ATI cards can do
