Summary0000665: MadVR HDR API not as good as windows API
DescriptionHaving issue with MadVR and HDR on my new display. HDR content in playing in madVR HDR is okay at best. Dark areas are really crap tho. Playing same movie in windows crappy player shows dark scenes much well. And brighter scenes are much more brighter vs madVR. Theres a bug to get windows API to run with MPC/madVR but only in windowed mode that really shows the difference.

Sorry for the late reply. Do you have any screenshots to show the issue? Is this with sending HDR untouched in passthrough mode to the display? Or with letting madVR tone map and sending the tone mapped video to the display? Is the OS HDR switch on or off?

Also try D3D11 decoding instead of DXVA2.
