Win -  HOW TO - Configure Kodi DSPlayer with LAV Filters, XySubFilter & madVR
Wonderful guide! I've found it clemency helpful over the time I've fiddled with my home theater setup.

I've got one question though that maybe someone can help me with. I haven't found a answer while googeling,

MadVR report right or "true" Aspect Ratio (AR) while hitting Ctrl-J.
Kodi osd while hitting "O" does not. Most often it report 1.78:1

I suppose this has to do with black bars in the encode which is part of the picture. Hence MadVRs analyze this in a fashionably manner but Kodi don't

I use this AR info to trigger events outside of Kodi. So what I want to do is a better implementation of AR analyzing in Kodi.
I've seen the "Report Back AR in MadVR to media player" But this doesn't seem to be working.

Is there another way to get better analyzing of source AR with kodi?

Probably not. That would require further development from aracnoz.

if yes this OS has huge issue with switching refresh rates.
you can try to use overlay or FSE to avoid this issue or change to a OS with a working desktop composition.

the composition is supposed to be the same as the desktop refresh rate.
and desktop refresh rate is the display refresh rate.
these composition rate mismatches are a huge problem on windows 7 and older.

the desktop refresh rate doesn't matter it is changed at the same time.
I know this is an old post but I am experiencing this issue ever since swapping my TV (could be coincidence - not sure how it could be a cause). I've tried every combination of settings I can think of but I can't get the composition rate to match the display's refresh rate. Example:

Default refresh = 50 Hz
Start watching 23.976 FPS video
Display says 23.976
Composition rate says 50

I've also seen it the other way around (display 50, composition rate 23.976). I have Kodi set to change the refresh rate as needed. I've tried D3D9, D3D11, toggling MadVR's automatic refresh rate change on and off, and other things I've forgotten. The solution offered by huhn - switching to Fullscreen Exclusive mode - doesn't work for me. The behaviour changes to this:

Default refresh = 50 Hz
Start watching 23.976 FPS video
Display says 25

I am very sensitive to stutter so there's no way this has been happening before, I'd have noticed. In every case the display refresh rate is correct, according to both MadVR and the display itself. I'm using Windows 7 on this box with an nVidia GT 430 GPU. Any ideas how to fix this or why it's started happening? The only other difference I can see is that the nVidia control panel now thinks there's a "repeater" in the HDCP chain, not sure why.

For anyone with a similar problem, it seems that letting MadVR deal with refresh rate changes rather than Kodi is the solution!

I have converted all my 3D BD-s to Full sbs format (encoded using HEVC main10 profile). I wanted to use madVR for rendering them but it currently doesn't support the format yet. Hence I made a simple merits rule to assign them (with "3D.SBS" in the filename) to DVDPlayer. I wanted to configure Kodi in such way that it would play everything excluding the ones with "3D.SBS" in the filename using DSPlayer. The problem it is using DSPlayer&madVR all the time, seemingly leaving my rules out of consideration. My 3D files are containing 3D.SBS in the filename. I have created a new rule with 3D.SBS specified in the file name row.

Please help. I got stuck. Kodi is always using madVR which is currently "dumb" to render my full SBS files.

Guys, quick question do you reccomend using Sanear for Bitstreaming or ReClock? I know reclock is old but it has WASAPI EXCLUSIVE and apparently you can select it to bitstream at 192k so would appreciate your advice to which is the best to use for DSPlayer , many thanks

Got finally HDR (kinda) working but 2 things bother me and I have no idea what is the problem.
First my system:
NUC7i3BNH with Intel Graphics 620 (Driver v23.20.16.4901), 8GB RAM, Windows 10 Pro 64-bit v1709 with HDR in settings enabled
Connected to a Yamaha RX-A2050 which is connected to an Samsung KS7000 with UHD enabled.
Kodi 17.4 DSPlayer Edition, madVR 0.92.10, Exclusive mode enabled, windowed mode disabled, pass HDR and Metadata.
First problem:
TV switches only to HDR when i press the Window Key that the start menu pops up, then it refreshes and the TV switch to HDR. After I stop and start again, HDR is not on the TV enabled.
Second problem:
I dont see the subtitles. They are not displayed even it shows enabled.
Please see below screenshot

Cheers
Tom
