Intel NUC - Haswell (4th Generation CPU)

My many years old limited-rgb-range 46" LCD has almost no post processing. The pp-options that are there are fully deactivated.

xbmc limited unset, no xrandr hack -> test images display correctly in thumbnail and full screen
xbmc limited set, xrandr full RGB -> test images display correctly in thumbnail but blacks are crushed in full screen

I don't pretend to understand this, but thought you might be interested ....

Similar results here (Limited range LCD, HDMI connected directly without AVR):

Case 1:
Quote:xrandr to FULL range
xbmc range setting checked (=LIMITED)

Picture THUMBNAILS blacks okay
Picture FULLSCREEN blacks crushed
Video THUMBNAILS blacks okay
Video FULLSCREEN blacks okay

Side note:
When the black-level-test-image is put in a video, the blacks are not crushed! Only fullscreen picture seems affected.
So after all it really may be a problem regarding fullscreen-pictures being processed differently than fullscreen-videos? I don't have any other explanation.
I even put out my old media player to compare the same videos and pictures and on the old player picture and video give the same result.

Case 2:
Quote:xrandr to LIMITED range
xbmc range setting NOT checked (=FULL)

Picture THUMBNAILS blacks okay
Picture FULLSCREEN blacks okay
Video THUMBNAILS blacks okay
Video FULLSCREEN blacks okay

So you would guess Case 2 would be unlogical UI-wise for a limited-rgb-range TV, but still worth testing.

If i understood lmyllari correctly, Case 1 would be the preferred way for a limited range LCD (and more logical in terms of UI).
Since i don't use pictures at the moment, i don't mind that much which way i'm using. But if we can work towards a fix, would't hurt, would it? I'll stick with preferred Case 1 for now.

If i can do more testing to narrow the potential bug down, please let me know.

Greets! Smile



BTW: Also to confirm: Everything else seems to work great since the kernel USB-bug was patched. Live-TV/PVR more stable than ever (even compared to my beloved 3.2.4 build from lmyllari)
