    I have a 4K TV, and HDR enabled on Windows 10 appears washed-out. Playing around with different color space options didn't help. If I use MPC-BE with madVR and full-screen a HDR video with HDR enabled though, it looks pretty good, and if I either window it or just have the OSD display for a bit, it reverts back to the washed-out state.

    So I'm thinking in order to fix this, I need to report all content to the display as video. With NVIDIA, I recall this being easy from their control panel (info).

    Is this possible at all on AMD?

    AFAIK that wont work in nvidia aswell, any non-HDR in windows HDR will suck and thats it, even with video mode :D

    if you want HDR auto enable/disable so you don't have to worry, try Kodi HDR builds, those will enable HDR without you having to worry about it

    I'm thinking that if the video mode is reported as actual video at all times, HDR would be fine. If it's reported as nothing or desktop/PC graphics, I believe that's why my display doesn't handle HDR well. The video HDR test I did seems to confirm that (HDR looks bad without the video playing, but with the video playing, HDR looks ok).

    I just don't want to always have some video open full-screen to use HDR with games :p

    Does anyone know if there's a way to force it from registry or something? Basically it seems like my display/drivers know when a video is playing or not; I'd just like it to always assume I'm playing videos no matter what.
