Nice guide I don't mind using the registry fix but I'm sure some people may prefer this.
I modified my monitor's driver to override the EDID since I got tired of needing to do these fixes so often.
It would help if Nvidia included the option in the control panel as CCC does.
Just a quick thanks for this info it made a good piture even better, Worked a treat ,blacks are blacker and colours are just more vibrant , LG TV 32inch screen @1980x1020 , give it ago u wont be disappointed if the fix work for you.
Best post I've ever seen on this whole damn forum, thank you so much seriously.
I've been struggling with this forever and it seemed the only way around it was making custom resolutions, that unfortunately didn't work in some games for whatever reason.
Nvidia has brushed this to the side for too long, a lot of people use TV's now for pc gaming.
Thanks soo much for this!! Was a night & day difference here. I also had to remove the color profile installed for my monitor and change it to a sRGB profile for everything to look proper.
Borderlands 2 looks great now, colors really pop!!
Glad to have helped! You are now experiencing things they way it should always have been!
Keep bombarding nVidia to implement the fix in their drivers!
I’m sorry but I agree with what Alco posted.
Here is another link with some explanations:
Things look “different” (better for some) because your TV is calibrated differently for this type of source. You should be able to get the same result by using limited RGB and adjusting your TV options.
Full RGB is a legacy feature coming from DVI specification.
If you play also with the HDMI profiles (like desktop, games, full screen video…) you will notice that your TV will change the profile it is using (it is the case on my Sony TV). Each time the graphic card is switching from one profile to another (when set on Auto), I can see that my TV is using different contrast/brightness/color settings which can be modified in each mode.
That is why I’m forcing the driver to be always in "full screen video" mode so it is using only one calibrated profile on my TV whatever I'm doing (gaming, using word, watching a film in full screen...)
I use Displayport on my moniter, thats straight displayport from my 660ti to my asus ve278.
would this RGB thing have any effect on me? I see under the one settings the limited/full RGB option
and under adjust desktop color settings an option for RGB, YCbCr422 and 444
Objectively, you should have at least 2 separate HDMI configuration settings/profiles or different ones on different HDMI inputs for different sources.
1 for 16-235 4:2:0 broadcast material.
2 for 0-255 4:4:4 RGB
I must of missed your post when i first read the thread, have you set your TV's source name to PC?
if you go to source select and set the source name of whatever HDMI slot your PC is connected to PC, PC DVI, or DVI The TV will change itself into a moniter basicly. this will fix any sharpness issues, and color issues.
my Samsung UN40B6000 support this feature so your 8000 series should too.
the screen will go black and come back on when it loads the PC profile after being set.
EDIT: difference between the 3 settings is PC allows sound through HDMI, PC DVI has only video through the HDMI and accepts sound through the 3.5mm input jack, and last just DVI support only video.
I have HDMI2, with custom-settings, game mode and still get HDMI audio. I will try the source rename tonight. Will let you know. Thanks for the advice.
When I click apply and it starts searching it crashes every time.
Running as admin yes.
so maybe make this a sticky?
without this RGB is far too bright. black screen are gray screens.
I vote sticky. until nvidia fix the brightness issue. and dont say its not a nvidia issue because my amd card dont have this issue.
It works great for me too on a Sharp Aquos LED. Thank you for sharing OP!
It's a nice trick, i tested it and i removed it. I like limited rgb more on my LG 660S i just like the detail seen in the darker areas with it and natural picture. With full rgb blacks are just crushed and it's not a fault of a screen calibration, it's just to intense level overall i think.
Can't believe i didn't know about this until now, it worked quite nicely.
Look for a black level setting in the display or something similar.
Set it to high, then use full RGB and adjust brightness etc to suit.
You may not have this setting, but its worth a look.
I have this setting, and i tested both (low, max). It's still crushed and very intense at contrast/colour. You can't just calibrate the level of signal crushed blacks by a setting on a tv (brightness, etc), coz it will be a non natural picture then. My screen is very nice working with a limited rgb (whites are white, blacks are black but with a proper level of detail in shadows). And yup my tv does support full rgb.
Just look at this two photos (not mine), first limited rgb, second full rgb (poor black details)
Same situation. It may look better for a first time but then .
It was a suggestion in case it helped.
Your TV may have the setting reversed.
Much better now.
