I've heard mentioned of MadVR allowing changing gray scale and color gamut to match a calibrated display? Anyone care to elaborate? Thanks
As an "on the record" skeptic of MadVR I think it has a definite role for some users depending on what you are using your HTPC for. If you are using your HTPC on a 50" screen watching mainly 1080p content then you are less likely to see a dramatic improvement. If you are watching interlaced non-HD content on 120" screen then you are more likely to see a difference.
A few well respected people such as Shark007 (publicly) and about a half dozen others that have sent me private messages have tested extensively and found no difference. I tested ---- but I admit it wasn't extensively as I "only" have a 61" 1080p display and watch limited interlaced content.
Even so I think the consensus is that it CAN offer an improvement in PQ. As Nevacariel once said LAV and MPC-HC gets you to about 90-95% and Madvr may get that last 5%.
So the answer: It could. It could not.
And yes, I follow this thread regularly as I want to try Madvr again once I move and am finally able to afford and install a 120" projection screen.
