Win -  HOW TO - Kodi 2D - 3D - UHD (4k) HDR Guide Internal & External Players
Mount81,
I use Windows 10 with a PC.  I have no experience with Android devices.  Your PCF.xml is your creation and has many additional entries that I don't use.  Whether they clash somehow and create your pop-up is unknown to me but in theory your PCF.xml looks ok to me.  I'm also not familiar with your player of choice called 'Wrapper' but a quick google search looks like it's common to Android.  This really isn't the forum for Android usage unless another user is familiar because I'm not.  I did notice <hidexbmc>true</hidexbmc>.  I have no use for that code for what I do here but you might try changing that to <hidekodi>false</hidekodi>.  The .bats I use are in the guide along with an example PCF.xml used and essential to Windows operation with it.  I suspect your pop-up has something to do with Android and the device you run it on and your quest for a fix would be better addressed in an Android forum.  Sorry.

luci5r,
Press Ctrl + J to display madVR OSD while the video is playing and take a screenshot to post here or a link to it.  Perhaps that will reveal something.  Is your display native 60Hz or 120Hz?  Your symptom sounds like a motion handling problem.

 Thanks @brazen1, I'll get back to you with this.

Hmmm ... For some reason Ctrl+J doesn't work. I right clicked and found Display Stats attached to Ctrl+J, but it's greyed out Sad

Try Ctrl + Z.

I see nothing wrong with your stats that indicate a motion problem.  Is your display native 60Hz or 120Hz?  Your screen shot does not look HDR although I see it is passing through NV HDR.  It's also windowed instead of fullscreened.

This is playing back on the TCL 55R617. The set has a native refresh rate of 60Hz, and an effective refresh rate of 120Hz using TCL's CMI (Clear Motion Index). 

Whenever HDR (or Dolby Vision) content is played back on this TV, there is a short (few seconds) pause where the screen goes black - I believe it is the set switching from SDR -> HDR/Dolby Vision. At that point an indicator comes on at the Top-Right of the screen with a label "HDR" or "Dolby Vision" for 2 seconds. This does happen when I play HDR Content in MPC-BE using the settings as described. It also happened when the above "Oblivion" UHD HDR video was played back for the Screenshot. I used the Windows 10 "Snipping Tool" software for creating the screenshot. What you're seeing the screenshot is definitely not what my eyes see when I'm viewing the video on TV. It's looking much paler, washed out in the screenshot. I do believe HDR was activated & working during playback. I don't believe the screenshot is displaying it correctly. Possible image compression or whatever tech Snipping Tool uses. 

Yes, in order to take the screenshot I had Alt-Tab to Snipping Tool, which did bring the video in Windowed Mode. However, the issue that I described was in full screen playback. Windowed mode was only switched to for the sake of taking the screenshot.

I'm not familiar with your panel or its refresh rate CMI function but it sounds like it is 60Hz native.  The reason I ask is because you stated you had an indescribable motion problem.  Native refresh rates at 60Hz resort to 3:2 pulldown which causes judder.  I've no idea if what you are experiencing is judder or something else?  It isn't dropped or repeated frames which is why I requested your OSD snapshot.  Users with 60Hz usually ignore the judder or use some type of algo to help smooth it.  This is why there is a push demanding studios start releasing in higher refresh rates (60Hz) because 24Hz is not perfectly divisible into the limited rate of 60Hz.  Personally, I think the notion is ridiculous since most decent modern panels are native 120Hz interpolated even higher such as 240Hz.  This is what I use and why I require native 120Hz and willing to pay for it.  There will be some noticeable judder even when using something that helps smooth motion including related settings in the panel.  madVR offers this.  You could try it and see if it helps with your problem.  Many use it because they too have 60Hz panels.

Makes sense! Where is the settings in MadVR for this? I can definitely play around a bit. 

Would this be the setting by any chance?

The good news is, this is not the set I'll be playing back 4K HDR on. This is actually my Gaming TV, exclusively & only used for Gaming. And the set is actually, absolutely brilliant for 4K HDR/Dolby Vision Gaming. 

I have a 1080p 3D Projector (Epson 5010) which is used for all media playback. However, it's an outgoing device as I recently placed on order for the JVC 4K HDR 3D Projector (X790R). It's on order right now and I'll probably have it by the end of this month. Since I had a 4K HDR panel connected, I was doing some preliminary testing of the software, as the same software (HTPC) will be used for playback on my incoming JVC X790R. 

Thanks!
