    In case it might help with working out what the TV can support, can you run Moninfo/Monitor Asset Manager - http://www.entechtaiwan.com/util/moninfo.shtm and post the info (the attached is the info for my laptop display, which in the 'Timing Characteristics' section only supports 1080p at 60Hz and 40Hz - a TV will support a lot more resolutions and timings).

    Wow, realized i never replied back. I went looking for this thread when color problem showed it face again. It seems it fixed the problem by changing my Windows resolution down to 30, but I need it at 60 so I am running into a real issue.

    I and a few others meet that same issue with 4K and Nvidia cards.
    See: https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/...-blurry-green-zoomed-in-ui-and-player.134350/

    It seems to be an issue only when MP is in "exclusive mode", that's probably why using your network mouse fixes it temporarily. It's also not a problem when MP does not have the focus. Put a small window over it for instance.

    Check in your TV menus if you can change the color depth for your HDMI port. My Phillips has such an option, it does either 4:2:0 or 4:2:2/4:4:4. You need to match that with your color depth in NVidia control panel. If your TV does not have such an option try reducing the color depth in NVidia control panel. Setting it to 4:2:0 should allow you to switch back to 60Hz.

    Both color depth and refresh rate have a significant impact on your HDMI bandwidth.

    BTW, realized I never replied back on this one, in case anyone else runs into it. @Stéphane Lenclud Got me pointed in the right direction. My TV Has an option HD Deep Color Mode, turning this on or off will get the desired results.

    If it keeps annoying me enough I'll have to help you with that :whistle: That's weird, because video locks up first with audio still playing for a few more seconds before MediaPortal restarts, but this will give me a few more avenues to test for. The main difference is that when I was on 1.19-1.21 without this issue that it was HTPC...
