    hi guys,
    i guess you have opened the settings before playback.
    just start some video and then open the lav settings via the tray icon and you should see something...
    so back to your problem, with your card 4k is not really great but it should work. don't use lav on copy back with a 1030 as joe told ya... use dxva2 native mode with your low power system and may also reset madvr to default (in your madvr install folder is a link for this).

    till now nothing's changed

    Just as @daWooky said, clicked on the LAV icon in the tray once MP has started playing a vid. That will then show the actual running status rather than just the static settings. Note though if you make any changes in this view they will not be actioned until the playback is stopped and restarted.

    Ok, I followed your advices , it allowed me to make some tests again.

    Finally, the last test seems to confirm that the GT1030 work fine with MadVR but is too weak for 4K HDR.

    Look at this picture :
    The TV is 4K. I ran MP1 in window mode. At this size, the video is perfectly smooth (its nearly HD size)
    The LAV windows confirm that the GT1030 is used to decode.
    The use of the GPU is almost 100%, the CPU use is low.
    [​IMG]

    If I enlarge the video, it becomes more and more jerky. The GT1030 is too busy.

    So .... I found my problem, thanks to you : I "just" need to buy another video card.

    OK this time : not below 1050ti 4Gb :D
    But, is it interesting to buy a more powerful card (1560, 1060, 1660 ....AMD ?) ?
    My HTPC is never used for something else but MP1.

    Do you have any advice for a good, SILENT, short graphic card (to fit in my HTPC)?

    EDIT :
    GeForce GTX 1650 seems to be a good choice :
    Video Encode and Decode GPU Support Matrix

    UserBenchmark: Nvidia GTX 1050-Ti vs 1650

    Thx, Thx guys..(y)

    I have a Nvidia 2070 in the Multimedia computer ,,, I personally would not go there .... before I had a 1080 in the PC, also worked very well.
    Believe but one 2060 (she means I think) also works.
    MadVR is a bit demanding when it should be better settings.
    For a 1650 I can not really say something.

    if you would like it cheap and 0db silent there is only one card left from nv palit ::Palit Products - GeForce® 1050 Ti KalmX ::
    1650 is quite cheap but not so much faster in direct comparison i guess...
    in general a faster card is always worthwhile for madvr 4k upscaling (so far you can overload every card with madvr to 100%, even the rtx 2080ti)
    In your case with a dual-core cpu, I wouldn't invest much more and whether it could really be worth it for you depends mainly on your viewing habits and what your wallet advises you to do.^^
    but to be on the safe side for a nice system thats upscaling all crap to 4k no matter what, I would at least buy a 1070 or 2070 again.

    cheers

    For sure, a GTX2060 would be a good choice. But my Wallet said me it's a too long and noisy and heavy .. so and so ...card. :rolleyes:
    I had an hesitation between GTX1660 and GTX1650, but the first one is too expansive too.
    Every review I read show that GTX1650 is better than GTX1050TI.
    I choose this one, it's the max I can buy for the moment, hopping it will be powerfull enough to read 4K HDR videos. I will give you the results of my test :whistle:

    I replaced the Geforce GT1030 by a GTX1650, and did the same test, wtih the same configuration :
    [​IMG]
    Everything is smooth and the colors are bright in 4K. Perfect.
    As you can see the GPU usage is 41%, for a video HD size. I Suppose the GPU usage is probably almost full for 4K.
    I also tested with DXVA copy-back and NGU parameters (image upscaling -> soft) and is OK.
    I am going to enhanced quality by changing parameters to see the limits of the card.

    You may also want to try D3D11 in LAV, for my AMD gpu it gives a better performance than copy-back although sadly Madvr does not fully support it (it breaks when switching tv channels) but seems to work well with vids.

    The 1050ti is the one I got and I am very satisfied for HEVC/HDR content.
