v16 DXVA and black levels
#1
I was running Kodi 15.2 with success using full-full-full RGB 444 on kodi-gpu-tv and the black levels were fine.
DXVA hw acceleration was enabled.

After upgrade to Jarvis, either 16.0 or 16.1RC1 i have wrong black levels.

Using the Black Clipping video from AVSHD709 calibration media i'm seeing blinking levels all the way down to 3-4.
With DXVA HW acceleration disabled, levels are fine again (level 17+ visible).
VLC also has no issues with hw acceleration enabled.

AMD R9 280 in question, radeon 16.3.1 drivers, directx 11.1, w7x64SP1.

hi,

short: kodi 15.2 = dx9, kodi 16 = dx11. some hardware/driver-combination has problems switching to the correct video color range (problem does not occour with dx9, but with dx11).

long: please reade the last posts/sites here: http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=218274
if you want do the test i did and post the results there (kodi test version/kodi final). also i posted there a kind of workaround that works at least for ati cards (shader replacement).
