  1. I know the theoretical background about HDR and color depth. I can also play some clips with the integrated player of my TV.

    But how do I play HDR content with a software media player or media center?

    HDR on a PC requires a combination of hardware and software. I'm not sure how well Dolby Vision is supported on PCs. There is some support for HDR10. You need:

    1. HDR-capable TV or monitor.

    2. Windows 10 w/Creators Update.

    3. A video card with HDMI 2.0a or HDMI 2.0b and HDR10 support. ...or a motherboard with HDMI 2.0a/2.0b and HDR10 support. NVidia 10xx series video cards have HDMI 2.0b and HDR10 support. So do AMD Radeon RX 400-series video cards. A few Intel Z270 motherboards can provide HDMI 2.0a/2.0b and support HDR10. No AMD motherboards provide HDMI 2.0a/HDMI 2.0b at this time.

    4. A video player with HDR 10 support. Potplayer and Power DVD 17 Ultra are supposed to support HDR. I think there is possibly a way to support HDR10 using Kodi plus MPC-HC and MadVR. I'm not sure of the details.

    MPC-HC and MadVR do not work any more in fullscreen with HDR movies. Fall Creators Update broke this.

    Windows Mode


    Fullscreen

  5. Are you sure, maybe Driver update broke it. What driver are you using?
