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

This is entirely your call, but I had a thought. When GT 1030 first came out, it was touted to be one of the best graphics card choices for an HTPC-only setup, including UHD HDR playback, and a lot of people bought into it. Not everyone was either inclined to use MadVR or didn't realize at the time that they couldn't. Ultimately though, a lot of us started to experience the shortcomings, either with hardware requirements not matching up, or most importantly with MadVR. 

However, the suggestions by @Warner306 coming out of another thread here and one at Doom9 has changed that scenario a tad. Although GT 1030 still cannot avail the real features & benefits of MadVR, we can now at least enjoy the MadVR/MPC-BE combination, same as any other software like PDVD or DVDFab (excluding ISO menus), and is actually a great solution & combination. 

I think it might do some good for the GT 1030 community who may be stumbling upon this thread but not fully aware of the ongoings in these last two pages to be made aware of them. 

To do so, perhaps you could add a link exclusively aimed at the GT 1030 community in your Post #1 or Post #205. You could mention something along the lines of "For GT 1030 or similar, lower end cards, please see:" ... and you could potentially link to my post just above this one (#756) with screenshots to settings required for UHD HDR flawless playback with GT 1030 using MPC-BE/MadVR.

Either way you see fit, it may be of some value to insert this somewhere in your extremely useful & informative guides. 

Thanks!
