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

I have everything working now, with the exception of closing MPC-BE and returning to Kodi using my remote.  I mapped long pressing the "Exit" key in my Harmony Ultimate to "Alt-F4" (sequence using the MCE Keyboard device: Alt for first step, F4 for second step).  Playback stops, the screen goes black, I briefly see the mouse cursor, and then the screen remains black, and does not go back to Kodi.  It would seem MPC-BE does not exit.  I have to use a keyboard and press Esc, and then MPC-BE exits full screen, and using the mouse I close its window, and then Kodi comes back.

Is there any other setting I need to change in MPC-BE? Exit is mapped to Alt-F4.

My only other issue is with colors on my TV, which I don't like.  I have a Sony XBR55X800E.  I calibrated it using an X-Rite i1 Display PRO meter and ChromaPure software, but I still don't like the colors, they look a little washed out, especially in 4K movies.  I don't know whether it is the combination of my GTX 1050Ti and that display, or if it is the display itself.

Playing a 4K Blu-Ray through my Sony 4K Blu-Ray player gives me the same results, so I figured it could be my AVR causing the issue.  I tried hooking the Blu-Ray player directly to the TV, and also the PC directly to the TV, but I still get the same results.  All of my HDMI cables are high-speed cables.

The weird thing is that if I play a 4K HDR YouTube video through the TV's YouTube app, it looks excellent.  I have not figured out what is going on with this, and I am seriously thinking of changing the TV.

Do you know if there is anyone that is playing 4K HDR movies through Kodi the way we are, using a LG OLED TV hooked via an AVR? I ask, since I am looking at a 55 inch LG OLED B7.

Anyway, thank you so much for your help.

Regards,

Bart
