    After years and years of love for MPC, then MPC-HC, I just switched to the MPC-BE flavor, and I must say....not too shabby! It's almost the same except it has a nicer looking theme and that nice seek preview feature for quickly finding the good parts in your po....movies.

    I thought I might not like it because a few times the video went black while sound continued (I was on 1.5.2 beta build 34something?). Thing is I had just switched to these new nvidia drivers as well and I suspect it is them. Anyway, switched to MPC BE 1.5.1 stable and have had no problems.

    No issue with MPC-HC (x64) v1.7.16.0 + madVR v0.92.14 + LAV Filters v0.71-34-g7a473.

    It's not because this hang basically has no effect on your experience.

    reverting back to older drivers. These are just terrible for me, causes not only system hangs but introduces micro stutter in pubg.

    GPU-z needs an update in order to recognize the WHQL signature.

    I'm getting blue pixelated artifacts, particularly on video playback and game main menus since installed these drivers. Anyone else?

    I am using 397.40 and for me mpv works in d3d, opengl and vulkan modes fine.

    Tried to Update to the latest driver but it refused to install correctly. GPU was never detected after update. Had to reinstall the driver before this one.

    This is just a limitation in gpu-z, the driver is whql

    Had to revert back to 391.35. This driver was plaguing Event Viewer with lots of event errors. I already had dozens of them. Back on 391.35, no errors. Like always, I made a "light / debloated" install with just Physx and Audio Drivers selected.

    Yes i know that mate.. BTW a new Nvidia WHQL driver is coming soon. So many users reporting serious issues with these especially GTX1060 users are having a nightmare with 397.35. Personally i don't have any issues except that the uxd service is slowing down system reboot/shutdown sometimes and thats really annoying! (It was supposed to be fixed in older versions but lool...)

    @jdc2389 MPV plays just fine here,even better then the previous drivers with d3d11 on Win 10 1607 LTSB. Check your system m8.

    My system is on full UEFI boot, so it might be.

    Limitation of GPU-Z?

    I think the problem is somehow related to this.

    Ah, i forgot to mention I'm on win10 1803. I'm using HDMI, so it's not a displayport thing. It works with 397.31 and 397.40 (new vulkan driver, someone posted in forums)

    After having it set like this for a few days, I'm pretty much sold on keeping HDR enabled all the time. There used to be some latency/highGPU on the desktop (and borderless fullscreen games) when using HDR with ycbcr422 10bit, like it was converting RGB to ycbcr or something. I even submitted a ticket to Nvidia about it a while back.

    The problem is pretty much gone now when using RGB 8-bit. I also figured out with my Samsung tv to disable pc mode and use game mode instead. Low input lag and good colors (not washed out like before). Games look good, I tested a couple of games, Fortnite + Warframe (both games SDR), and Final Fantasy 15 (HDR and SDR modes) and so far things run smooth and look great.
