1050ti issues - random blackouts witih MPC HC
just spent the day troubleshooting. i'm using a gigabyte 1050ti, + i3 2105 + 4gb RAM.
When playing any video - either some simple 1080 or 4k, the video performance is absolutely fine through madVR - i'm not using any hardcore settings.
However i randomly get blackouts - the screen will switch off and blink black for a few seconds, then return.
Sometimes it will do it after 20 minutes, sometimes after 10 seconds. Its totally random and theres no pattern to it. Its infuriating.
it appears to be better after a restart - thats the only pattern i can discern. I'll restart, then start the video, it'll blink, i'll close mpchc, restart the video, its like i have to 'cycle' through to get it going. Then it'll play the video for 10 minutes or 20, then it'll blackout again. WHen the video is playing, its fine. Audio and framerate, no issues.
Like someone is randomly pulling the HDMI cable in and out of the card, is the best way to describe it.
After much troubleshooting and swapping out components from different systems to try and isolate the issue - its definitely a card issue, with MPC HC. Its definitely not an issue with any other component - as i've swapped the card out to my other systems, tried different psu's etc.
The video plays Fine in VLC. But in MPC HC even if i don't use madvr and put it on system default video renderer, the blackouts are there.
Is there any software setting that anyone can think of that might be causing these black dropouts?
