Any chance I can pick your brain PlatypusW? I have an 8th gen NUC and its not working out for me I feel. When I enable HDR in windows it looks horrible, so washed out and gray. Your not having this issue?
It was a while ago that I sorted my windows setup now, pretty much got the NUC at launch. I didn’t note much down as I didn’t plan on having a windows OS for very long as I was hoping Linux would be sorted out by now but clearly not (though it sounds like it’s getting closer).
I’ll admit I had a few hiccups with setup - but at the time I felt that was down to the tv model I was using - there seemed to be a few issues that were different depending on the tv model.
At any rate - what software are you using for playback? I did find that certain software wasn’t outputting hdr (properly).
My current setup is kodi frontend with mpc-hc and madvr in backend. It seemed to be the easiest way to get hdr to work for me - but I’m fairly certain that was down to my tv and the drivers at the time, I don’t know if things have improved (or got worse). As far as I can tell I don’t have greyed out colours, I have done a few comparisons between it and my uhd player.
