Wheres all my madvr pro's at? I always see the 1060 6gb recommended for medium usage, not best settings. But I am at a loss here trying to watch UHD.
1. Is there a setting that is particularity taxing that I should try to turn down so I am not getting so many dropped frames?
2. I have tried CUVID and DXVA Copy Back both with the same results.
During playback I looked and the cpu and gpu were loaded. So its working hard.
I wouldn't call myself an expert, but I've played around with it enough to makes some suggestions.
Go into the MadVR control panel and turn down or even turn off "image doubling" assuming that you have any of that checked in the first place.
Any upscaling chroma algorithms really eat up the GPU juice when dealing with 2160p.
Don't change a whole bunch of things at once, do one change at a time, so you know what the problem is, at least that works for me.
A lot of those things are not really needed anyway, since it's already 2160p and descent chroma in the source _ such as an UHD disc.
The other approach is to save your present settings in MadVR and only then, set it back to default and start again, changing things one at a time until the problem resurfaces.
This is very time consuming of course, but just another approach _ nuke and pave if you like.
Just in case you missed this, it explains things very well, it applies to any player that can use MadVR as an extension, not just Kodi.
