Please try same tests with disabled harware acceleration - DXVA2 and Auto detect in render method.

updated to catalyst 15.7.1 and all is fine now (deinterlacing and also color room)

i noticed another thing: in file "guisettings" i found this:

<defaultvideosettings>
.
.
<sharpness>0.000000</sharpness>
.
.
does this work? max. value seems to be "1". but there ist no entry in gui? can you tell something about that?


RE: Windows DirectX 11 upgrade test thread - afedchin - 2015-08-07

this setting cannot be used in dxva.

Will be fixed in next build.

Thanks Smile

Would that be the next DX 11 build or Jarvis nightly or both Huh

just a headsup for legacy AMD users. I upgraded to Windows10 and the stock Win10 AMD drivers (dated january 2015) work perfectly fine with DXVA2 acceleration etc - so no need for outdated Catalyst drivers

Hi.

I've been using the Isengard DX11 version of 23th of July and 7th of August, and in both of them I have a huge problem of tearing...

My setup:

AMD E2-1800 APU
AMD Radeon HD 7340 1280x720 @ 60Hz
Windows 7 64 bits
1 single monitor: Samsung HD-Ready TV
Catalyst driver 14.2

My video output settings:
Display Mode: Full Screen #1
Resolution 1280 x 720p
Use fullscreen window
3D Disabled
Vertical blank sync -> Always enabled
Used limited colour range (16-235)

Acceleration:
Render method: Autodetect
HQ scalers: 0%
Allow DXVA2

However, with Helix 14.2, Isengard DX9 15.0 and 15.1, with the same video settings, I have no tearing at all.

If you need any debug log or whatever else, please let me know.

Thanks and awesome work with DX11!

Thanks for this Information, i try this in the next week.

because of my tv i have to limit the color range (16-235). i do this within catalyst (and not within kodi). the problem is, not every time the video is set to limited color, sometimes it is set to full color. i can test this with that "black clipping/flashing lights video", i guess you know that. i guess it could be something to do with refresh rate change, but iam not sure.

log: http://pastebin.com/ad2tLJrC

in debug log you will see that i have done the following:

start kodi (50 hz)
start testvideo (24hz), result: full color range
start testvideo again, result: limited colorrange
start testvideo again, result: limited collorrange
start tv (50hz)
start testvideo: result: full color range
start testvideo again, result: limited color range
start testvideo again, result: limited color range
start tv (50hz)
start testvideo: result: full color range
start testvideo again, result: limited color range
.......

i also limited color range within kodi with the same result

With my amd card, I need to set the color range for each hz separately.

Where can I find the video "black clipping/flashing lights"? I also want to test my clolour range settings, because I'm note sure what the correct seetings are.

RE: Windows DirectX 11 upgrade test thread - Caramba69 - 2015-08-11

I have tested the black level file. So what black level needs to flash to have the correct settings: 2-25 or 17-25 only?


RE: Windows DirectX 11 upgrade test thread - a11599 - 2015-08-11

Just a heads up: I recently tested the DX11 build on Windows 10 with Radeon HD 6570 and it worked fine. Pretty responsive and very quick display mode changes. (Unfortunately Win10 feels like a rough beta so I will stay on 8.1 for a while.)

I'm also interested in the answer.
Do I have to set Kodi also on limited color range, because if I do my blacks are worse? I now have set it only in my NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760, which seems to give the best results.

I guess 17-25 should blink only?

Did you enabled dynamic range or set pixel format? Because when i tried dynamic range wasn't working well..
