For 4K sources, use the highest value of chroma upscaling you can afford.
Playback must be under the reported frame interval. At 24 fps, this is 41ms. At 60 fps, this is only 16ms. So it gets worse with faster frame intervals. You need about 5ms or better under the frame interval for smooth playback without dropping frames. You don't need to turn your GPU into a heater with noisy fan, so I would consider this, as well. Some expensive GPUs are very quiet, even when under load.
Thank you, I will reply once I get 1060 installed and I get some testing underway :-)
Yes, the testing/setup is taking time as I want to do too many things and I don't have enough time to do all of them at once. LOL.
Gtx1060 is working as it should, I got audio working via DP to HDMI adapter for my non-4k compliant AVR. Also I got dvi-d to hmdi working for my 40" exercise TV. The only issue I have is with my JVC projector working in 4k rez and TV in 1080p, I'm limited to do muli-display to extended. I cannot do clone anymore (my previous setup). This causes "too smart for its own good" NVidia panel to turn off some displays if it doesn't detect signal for them. If I want to watch TV (which is not primary display) only with AVR audio, I have to re-enable display on AVR in order for sound to work. I think it might something to do with the sequence of devices I boot first. I have to test this more.
I've tried quickly HDR to SDR using latest build and I was very happy with the results. I need more time to setup it up properly madvr (using test patterns) and after it incorporate it into Kodi.
Also I tried quickly my Optoma 3D glasses and I got some mixed but positive results. I will have to do some tests with my old projector to compare 3D picture I was receiving from Optoma.
There is a great how to setup MadVR in your signature which I want to study as well...
I wish I had a full day or two to work on it... but with family life I only have 1-2 hrs a night to do so...
Thanks again for all the help
BTW... I've installed msi afterburner to setup custom fan curve on gtx1060 and to monitor GPU and VRAM usage. At one point (I will post results once I get things properly setup and tested) I saw GPU using 4.5gb of VRAM for 4k (SDR to HDR) + few other settings. However since I was clicking on options on the fly and I was rushing my final results might be different.
