MadVR + MPC-HC Crush Blacks on my PX65

Hi all. I'm new here so if I'm not supposed to post this here feel free to delete or move me around.

I'm using MadVR with MPC-HC and got it setup using the advanced guide here on AVS. I've gotten everything nailed down except for black levels. With my Vizio PX65-G1 blacks are getting crushed. Ive only tried my Blu-ray rips so far (full MakeMKV rips). MadVR output resolutions/frame rates are setup properly and RGB output is set to the following:

MadVR: Full
MPC-HC: Full
Nvidia Driver: RGB Full 12-Bit

When I try pretty much anything else blacks become gray but I can see a lot more detail. Black crush isn't an issue with other sources. Any ideas?

Specs:
Intel 6th Gen i5
16GB RAM
Nvidia GTX 1070

Look for or create from png an mkv that is a black pattern generator that shows the numbers and lines like this image:

When it plays, you should *barely* see 17 but not 16. If that's working then your blacks aren't crushed - you're just use to raised blacks. If not, then either adjust the brightness until it's right or debug why it's not.
Your Full/Full/Full RGB sounds good - is how I run my setup.

For kicks you could try desktop limited, madvr full, display limited and see how that looks.

Video: JVC RS4500 135" screen in pure black room no light, htpc nvidia 1080ti.
Audio: Anthem mrx720 running 7.1.4, McIntosh MC-303, MC-152, B&W 802d3 LR, B&W HTM1D3 center, B&W 805d3 surround, B&W 702S2 rear, B&W 706s2 x 4 shelf mounted for atmos, 2 sub arrays both infinite baffle: 4x15 fi audio running on behringer ep4000 + 4x12 fi audio running on 2nd ep4000.
