HDR "Washout / Blownout Color playback fix

20 April 2018 - 06:19 PM

I've been trying to watch HDR content on my computer and I kept running into the washout grey and bland color palette problem that a lot of people have with VLC or MPC-HC. Sometimes it would be blown out as in the example I posted below. After some digging I found two solutions that has mix results. Try each alone and than togther and see what looks the best.


1: Change the color range in the control panel to Full 0-255 instead of the default 16-235 (Limited).  For NVIDIA it can be found under "Adjust Video Settings" Inside the NVIDIA control panel. AMD has it somewhere similar to this.

2: Download install MadVR plug-in. Tell your video player to use it as a default render.


Hope this helps people because it annoyed me for months now. I had it kinda working with VLC 2.5 without MadVR, but playback was laggy for HEVC 4K.

Anyone need a video card?

08 March 2018 - 01:26 PM

Yeah I know its click bait but I found four RIVA NV128 in a box at work. I actually used one for a Pentium 2 with a bad video card last week. This P2 is running the EAS (Emergency Alert System) for a good chunk of Montana haha. Lucky for us, no real alerts ever come down, only a test once a month.

Seasonic RMA A+

15 December 2017 - 08:33 AM

I sent in a Seasonic Platinum (first generation) after 5 years of use because it failed to hold a load above 600watts and received a Platinum ULTRA Prime in return. Seasonic got my unit Monday and today (Friday) a new one showed up at my door. Haven't had to RMA anytime to Seasonic until now, but its good to know they stand behind the warranty and extremely easy to deal with.

galvanized corrosion in nickel loop?

08 September 2017 - 09:08 PM

So I am observing some light galvanized corrosion in my loop. Expect what confuses me is that all the blocks are nickel plated copper. Only the Fittings and Radiator are Brass. Neither of which shows any signs of corrosion. So I'm really confused of what causing it though it seems the worse on the block connected the radiator which has the nickel partly stripped and turning green. I took the loop completely apart and cleaned all the blocks, the CPU block had a nasty big green goop all in it. After I cleaned it the block still has all the nickel plating on it unlike the other blocks. Other the replacing the fittings and Radiator I'm not sure what to do.


Anyone come across this before?
