Win HOW TO - Kodi 2D - 3D - UHD (4k) HDR Guide Internal & External Players
Hmmmm. I've read a few things about upscaling on the PC vs. the display. My PC and display simply don't work the ways described. It is exactly the opposite. I think my Samsung JS8500 overrides all of it. It makes no difference what player I use. None of them are set to upscale per say. Take the Windows Movie & TV app for example. There isn't even any settings for the player yet 1080p titles upscale to 2160p and report exactly that as do native 2160p titles. The display simply upscales everything including cable TV. The display reports what it's being fed, not the final product. I can however decrease the resolution to 1080p for example (with 1080p titles). This looks terrible on my 2160p display. Far worse then the same title did on my previous Samsung C8500 which was a 1080p display.

A windows 'standard' would be 2160p/60Hz, not 1080p/50Hz in the U.S. Not sure about the E.U.? You certainly aren't utilizing the full 4k resolution gain though. Even the Kodi GUI looks terrible at 1080p compared to 2160p when in the past on a 1080p display it looked good. Maybe it's a PAL vs NTSC thing? Not sure? I'm here NTSC, you're there PAL.

Why not try setting EVERYTHING to 2160p? I'm fairly certain the display is still doing the upscale when needed and not the GPU. The GPU is sending what it can before the display ever renders it afaik. Probably mostly the decoding but I'm not an expert at any of this. It sounds as if you're writing exactly the opposite of my experience? You have a better GPU than I do too so it can't be held responsible for doing a better or worse scaling job than the display? I'd also find it hard to believe all the players software I've used do a better upscale than the display. Not too sure about what I read vs the real world sometimes.......

This is why I write what I read and what actually happens are two different things, at least in my environment. To take upscale task away from GPU and replace to display is already standard afaik. Don't do anything except improve what is given to the display using various GPU and player settings. To take upscale task away from display and give to GPU is what happens when you lower your resolution to 1080p for example and thus is not as good at 'scaling' as the logic in your TV and explains why the image(s) look worse.

Perhaps this explains your 'upscale loss'? Try it. Let us know.
