OK I need some help with my black levels now.
You can see I don't have a true black. It's not as black as the the real black. I have played with 0-255 and 16-235 setting in MPC-HC and no luck. I have triple checked my Intel graphics properties that I am running full range. I am at a loss. Is there a Hawell bug I don't know about ???
This is my desktop and not my HTPC so I am not super worried about it- I rarely watch movies. it's just the point it bothers me and I must defeat it.
Here is the details:
4770k i7 (no video card) I am running Asrock extreme4 with dual monitors. One HDMI and one DVI. Problem seems to exists on both monitors. Both monitors are samsung PC monitors that do full range.
I set up my MPC-HC the way outlined in the first post- and it's not the first time I have configured it. I am actually running SVP along side with Madvr. I turned it on and off and it does not matter.
You can see above that the black on the left or bottom are blacker than the black bars of the movie.
This is my settings for Intel graphics:
I have changed the IT mode and the colorspace settings both ways- no luck. I am not sure why my 23" Samsung monitor displays as a digital TV ???? It's clearly a 23" Samsung PC monitor, 1080x1920.
Anyone have ideas?
I tried VLC side by side to compare and it appears to have a darker black too. So now... I am wondering if it's a MADVR or MPCHC setting or it its Intel and graphics properties related.
I have no issue on my HTPC or my old desktop so... It's either Haswell related or I messed something up. Time to go trolling my settings.
