Win HOW TO - Kodi 2D - 3D - UHD (4k) HDR Guide Internal & External Players
may a little explanation what my prefered setup is cause im not talking about any 3D material.

TV is a samsung 65KS9590, windows PC with an GTX1070.

windows is standard set to 1080p/50, so is kodi also standard.1080p50

reason, mostly watched live TV HDTV (1080i), output then 1080p to TV and let the TV do the upscaling itself to its display, same with HD tvrips in 1080p.
for my personal experience by far better picture quality compared to setup windows and kodi to 2160p, then the PC has to do the upscaling and natively output 2160p to the TV.
in my tests always picture quality lost ...

i only use 2160p for real 2160p material, like now when standard kodi plays a 2160p file the resolution switches to 2160p when playing back such a file and go back to 1080p when stopped ...
and of course is then everything upscaled to 2160p whily playback, desktop, GUI, ... but it switches the resolution and refreshrate ... and back.

dsplayer with EVR working fine like this, also stock kodi, of course no HDR passthrough Wink which is my intention Wink and some picture quality imrpovements Wink

so i assume, this setup is probably causing issues why madvr is causing issues ... when not letting everything play back in 2160p.

its all about the standard setup question, 1080p as standard and only 2160p when needed, for less upscaling loss ... atleast here.
