After countless hours trying to use profile rules and custom timings to make everything work as intended on both my TV (LG C8) and Sony HW40ES (PJ), including custom timings, I just created a dual boot on my HTPC with two entirely different (and separated) Windows 10 installs. It took me half an hour and it works like a charm...
It solved Windows problems too, since the OS often tried to send a 4K signal to my 1080p projector, which resulted in a blank picture, reboot, etc.
That's a good plan.
Taking that to the next logical step, I have 3 HTPCs in my HT:
1 optimized for HD media including Blu ray (Outputs 1920x1080 23.976 Hz)
1 optimized for 3D Blue ray media (Outputs 1920x2205 23.976 Hz Frame Packed)
1 optimized for UHD media (Outputs 3840x2160 23.976 Hz)
all running Windows 8.1 (although I run Windows 10 on a couple of laptops, I simply don't trust MS to deliver a stable HTPC environment.)
Primary media player is JRiver Media Center 26 running red October HQ
additional media players: MPC-HC (LAV Filters, MadVR) , VLC Media player, Zoom Player (LAV Filters, MadVR)
