    Additionally for 3D (if needed) you do not need to add a special resolution (1080p) as it works as well just that it won`t be upscaled as 4K 3D is not possible.
    For me MadVR recognized that and "tells" windows to switch to 1080p 3D resolution automatically. You can still define settings for 3D within Madvr.

    I read here that MadVR works with an intel HD 4000 graphics card.
    So I downloaded MadVR and set it up according to the settings in this thread.
    Video in Mediaportal works on my Samsung Full HD pc monitor, but when connected to my Samsung UE55JS9000 S-UHD tv, it seems as if the pc hasn't enough juice to play back the video.
    The video doesn't play smooth and it's like a few frames are dropped.
    Probably because of the upscaling to 4k resolution ?
    But all of the users in here say it works with their intel HD 4000.

    My system :
    HP Pavilion 300-030NB
    Windows 10
    i3 - 4gb ram - intel HD 4400 graphics
    Latest mediaportal
    Latest LAV codec
    CoreAvc Pro 3.0.1 codec

    I've altered numerous settings,
    but no joy.

    Can anyone help me ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Greetings,

    Tried some numerous settings that didn't help at all;
    till I tried the setting under "Devices - Generic PnP Monitor - display modes"
    "list all display modes madVR may switch to"

    The default setting had nothing in it, so I've now set it to "1080p23"
    and it works.

    When I try to use 2160p23, it gives a black screen with audio only ( Lav codec - dvxa2 copy-back )

    So I'll use 1080p23 for now.

    But that leaves me thinking, now when a video is played, it will play in 1080p on a 2160p screen.
    So now it's not upscaling anything, right ?

    So is there any difference in quality now with this setting to "1080p23"
    between MadVR and the EVR renderer option in mediaportal settings ?

    I also had almost everything checked on the settings page of "Trade quality for performance".
    I'm going to uncheck one at a time now and see if quality can improve without performance.

    Hi
    According to your system specs you are using Win XP, is that true? Also what CPU do you have?

    In this case MadVR won`t upscale to 4K (it will upscale stuff to 1080p when lower resolution videos are played) as the output is 1080p but your TV will always upscale to 4K!
    For MadVR to upscale you need to have the 2160 added.

    If you are using EVR you cant use any of madvr`s options.... as madvr is known to be an amazing upscaler with all its options there should be differences in quality. But to be honest you might not always see it if you are not specially looking for it :)
