WIP Windows DirectX 11 upgrade test thread
@afedchin

just tested latest kodi beta 5 but color room is not ok for me. i have to describe a little, hope you understand me because english is not my native language:

system: win 8.1, catalyst 15.7.1 whql
hardware: amd a6 richland apu
tv: philips led, needs limited color room

how i test?
1) with that "flashing lights" video, with that video i can see if the color room ist full or limited and i can adjust the "perfect" brightness of tv with that video.
2) i compare result of "flashing lights" testvideo with newest kodi, with kodi 15.2_dx9 and with mpc-hc+madvr(dx11)

what works?
setting in catalyst: pixel format: studio rgb + force limited color room within catalyst video settings.
settings kodi: full color room + dxva
setting madvr: limited color room (because madvr doesnt care about catalyst settings)
result: i get limited color with all 3 players. the "perfect" brightness is "39" for my tv. i get the same "perfect" brightness results with all 3 players. all is fine.

what doesnt work?
setting in catalyst: pixel format: full rgb + automatic choose color room for video
setting kodi: limited color room + dxva
setting madvr: limited color room

result:
kodi 16 beta 15: video is not limited, i get full color room.
kodi 15.2_dx9 and mpc-hc+madvr: i get limited color room with "perfect" brightnes "51" for tv with both player

there is another strange thing:
befor i updated to kodi beta 16.5 i had latest kodi 15.2_dx11 installed. with that kodi version 15.2dx11 i also get the wrong (full) color room (with the settings describet above). but i had a kind of "workaround" that worked good for me:
catalyst: pixelformat: full rgb + force limited color room for video
kodi: limited color room
with that setting the kodi gui looks ok to me and also video color room was ok. with all test players i get the same result, means limited color room and "perfect brightness" of tv = "51".

but with kodie 16 beta 5 that "workaround" does not work.
with the describet workaround-settings i get limited color room for videos but the kodi video is now much to bright, much brighter than mpc-hc+madvr or the old 15.2_dx11.

hope you understand me, let me know if you need a debug log
