USB-C to HDMI 2.0 adapter that do not support HDR10 pass-thru:

Anker Do not support HDR10 pass-thru. No plans to add the support.
Club3D Do not support HDR10 pass-thru. Working on firmware update to add support, but ran into technical difficulties, so no HDR support for the near future.

I am still searching for an adapter that does. Looking into Cable Matters and UpTab. The UpTab one is interesting, as the MFR claims HDMI2.0a while no other MFRs claim the "a". (HDMI2.0a was created to support HDR10, while b for DV) I am not sure this is what was intended, or the MFR just failed to recognize the "a" is for HDR10. The chip is Parade PS176, which was also used in Club3D adapter. I have yet seen users mentioning about HDR10 support anywhere.

I'm too interested in those adapters because my HTPC mainboard has DP1.2 port which enables 4k@60Hz. It's not clear to me if the issue of HDMI 2.0 adapter that do not support HDR10 pass-thru relates to bandwidth limits, or the conversion chip or something else. And there may be a typo with "a" or "b" following HDMI2.0 sometime as well.

It is the LSPCON chip inside that does not properly pass thru the HDR10 meta data. Maybe a firmware update will fix it, or maybe not. All Intel Graphic will have the same issue as they need a LSPCON chip no matter it is desktop or laptop since Kaby Lake processor does not support native HDMI2.0 (a or b). At least on the desktop you can get a discrete HDMI2.0 graphic card to avoid the LSPCON issue.

I'm looking for advice on how to correctly play 25p material with MadVR and Reclock.

When I start playback of a 25p source, MadVR tells my Samsung tv to switch the refresh rate to 25p (probably 100hz in actuality). However, my MadVR playback stats show that I'm having frame drops every 1 second or so.

And when I open the Reclock window during playback, it looks like Reclock thinks the source is actually 23.976 fps.

I can manually change the source framerate in Reclock to 25p. This causes a message to appear in the Reclock Media Adaptation section saying "Cannot sync this CINEMA video to your hardware. Please set your monitor refresh rate near to a multiple of 24 Hz." When I then uncheck the PAL Speeddown (force to 24fps) option, the message changes to "PAL adaptation: media speed changed to 25.000 fps. Audio resampled at 48000 Hz". But I still get frame repeats every 1-2 seconds.

The best workaround I've found is to select the MadVR option for "Treat 25p sources as 24p", so MadVR slows the video down to 24p and sets my tv to 24p. Then I have to manually open the Reclock window during playback and set the source framerate to 25fps and chek the PAL SpeedDown option. This gets me to 1 frame drop every 2 minutes or so.

But this needs to be done manually every time I start a new 25p video. And still gets me nowhere close to the perfectly smooth playback I get with 24p content.

Any advice on how to set up MadVR and Reclock to handle 25p content correctly and automatically?

I'm looking for optimal settings of madVR for playing 1080p movies.
I'm using a Lenovo Ideapad laptop i7 6700hq, GTX950M, ssd , 8gb ram conected to Samsung Tv 55JU7500.

So far I used MadVR default settings with MPC-HC but I can't see a improvement image quality compared with EVR render (screenshots comparison).

try super XBR maybe even ngu low but a 950m is maybe not up to the task if the output resolution is UHD.

v1.7.13 is released and farewell

Pretty bummed out that this seems to be the end of development for this wonderful player. Are there any others like it? I heard some stuff about MPC-BE or something like that, but not really sure what the difference is.

MPC-HC will still be updated by clsid.
it is just unlikely we will see major new features.

the decoding side is pretty save too because MPC-HC uses lavfilter which is updated as usual.

MPC-BE is a fork from MPC-HC even up to this day they still share a lot of code and profited from each other.
MPC-BE is major difference is it uses it's own FFmpeg based decoder which is at least to my eyes clearly inferior to lavfilter so it is a little bit of work to switch from the internal decoder to lavfilter.

Whenever i play movies with MPC-HC i have low sound. From both speakers and headphones. 9/10 movies happen this. On contrary with BS Player the sound is very high, maybe at level of distortion.

Maybe it happens cause the movies have DTS sound? Most movies are Bluray x264

depends on the down mixing and if the player allows for more than 100% volume something that should never be used.
DTS has nothing todo with it it is just an audio codec. it is possible to encode audio louder by using the dreaded DRC.

mixing could be an issue you can try the mixing in lav audio. alternatively you can install AC3 filter and use the DRC function.

what so ever BDs are generally "lower" in volume at the same audio setting as audio CD the reason for that is simply CD are DRC to death so they are "louder" while BD audio is using a higher dynamic range to get better audio quality.

I guess depends on the settings mentioned on the 1st page, which i made. As i said BS Player and other players have higher sound on the same movies. But if its for better quality, i give up!
