This appears to be ubiquitous and I gather that some users overcome the issue of washed out colours from 10 bit video by configuring the renderer to use MadVR. While using MadVR as the renderer, I still don't see the rich vivid colours that appear when using VLC or PowerDVD as the player. Even when using the Cyberlink CODECs from PowerDVD (within Mediaportal 1), the colours are still washed out, yet they are rich and vivid in PowerDVD. As a workaround, I could instruct Mediaportal to play video within VLC but would rather have this issue solved using the Mediaportal's internal player. Does anybody have any solution to this problem. Thanks in advance.
