Intel VAAPI howto with Leia v18 nightly based on Ubuntu 18.04 server
That image isn't working.

What the new "Video 16:235 pass-through" option is, is the old Full mode, but with the proper tagging to tell your device that it's receiving a limited signal (note that you need to be running the latest Isengard build for this to work). Previously, you would manually switch to Full mode, set Kodi to Limited, and then manually force your display device to treat it as a limited range signal (which not every display can do). This avoids the video driver doing any range compression/expansion, which is what causes all the banding in the first place.

When your display device is working correctly, you should NOT see anything darker than bar 16. If you are, then it isn't treating it as a limited range signal, and everything will look washed out. Seeing brighter than 235 is fine.
