Win HOW TO - Kodi 2D - 3D - UHD (4k) HDR Guide Internal & External Players
@brazen1,

First of all, thank you for your guide and your tireless support in these forums.  I would like to start using the procedures you have shared.  This is my current configuration:

- Sony XBR55X800E LCD TV
- Intel Core i5 HTPC, Windows 10 17035 64-bit, 16 GB RAM, nVidia GTX 1050Ti GPU, Kodi Leia Nightly 64-bit
- Yamaha RX-V683 AVR

From what I have read in this thread (I have read most of it, however, not every single post), this combination of HW/SW should be OK for what I would like to play, namely:

1. SDR 720/1080p mkv (with subtitles in most cases)
2. HDR 4k remuxes (also mkv container, with subtitles in most cases)
3. No 3D.

If you would be so kind as to confirm the following for me, before I start installing and configuring MPC-BE, madVR, filters, and the rest of the components:

1. The best nVidia driver version to use is still 385.69? I will Google how to get that version (using the latest version right now) and install it if that is the case.
2. Should I leave the "HDR and Advanced Color" switch off in Windows 10?
3. If I will only play mkv (no ISO or file structure), how should the playercorefactory.xml and the .bat be modified? I am not sure which should be the correct command line to use with MPC-BE for this.
4. To set correctly the RGB full, 12-bit in the nVidia Control Panel, the first step you mention (Select YCbCr422 and save.") is necessary to be able to select 12-bit? I am sorry if you have answered this before.
5. Is there a best madVR version to use, or should I use the latest one, as well as the latest LAV and subtitle filters?

I am sorry for the long post, I want to make sure that I have all the latest and most complete info before going ahead.  Again, thank you so much for your help.

Regards,

Bart
