Thread Destiny 2 Next-Gen version for PS5 and XBOX Series X|S out now (With FOV slider!)
Quick info for people playing on PS5: You need to enable HDR in game manually for true HDR. Even though PS5 will run system wide in HDR, the game launches in SDR, meaning you see an SDR image upconverted to HDR.

Thread Marvel’s Avengers PC performance thread
Performance is interesting. My 6700K is locked at 100% usage almost the entire time, while my 2080ti sits at 30-40% on all high/ultra settings at 1440p. FPS is around 80. Been a long time since CPU was the limiting factor in a game.

Thread Elgato Game Capture HD60 S question
1 - The HD60 S can record from the Switch but NOT the PS3. The PS3, being the first blu-ray capable device had HDCP always turned on with no way to turn it off. 2 - Yes, it comes with its own software that makes recording super simple. The software has a feature called Flashback which is like a DVR that is always recording and once you have a clip you want to save you can hit record. My suggestion is always have our capture software running so you never miss a moment. If you have any other questions im happy to answer them!

Thread HDR gaming on PC - What settings are you using?
Yep...This is why on my TV I don't keep this setting enabled. Windows is doing its best trying to convert all SDR things, like the Desktop, programs, basically all of Windows to HDR, and its not good at it. HDR material like games, movies and videos on YouTube will look fine as those are properly mapped but anything in SDR being upconverted will not look great. You can try messing with the brightness slider which adjusts the mapping but I've never found a value that works well for me. Here's

Thread HDR gaming on PC - What settings are you using?
That is correct. Some games won't turn on HDR or show the HDR toggle unless HDR is also toggled 'on' system wide - Shadow Of The Tomb Raider requires the system wide toggle to be on for the game to detect that it can run in HDR. Same with Borderlands 3.

Thread Capture card question - is the color SUPPOSED to be off?
Hey OP! I actually saw one of my old guides mentioned here What capture card are you using? Is the issue the banding in the color or the color difference between the PS4 screenshot and the capture card screenshot? Im also happy to provide recommendations on products if you let me know what you want do to (Keep in mind I do work at Elgato)

Thread HDR gaming on PC - What settings are you using?
For YouTube to play HDR videos the HDR toggle in the Windows 10 settings needs to be set to on. This will turn on HDR system wide, and a browser like Chrome will detect that HDR is supported and let YouTube play in HDR. Its really annoying to have to do this and I hope it changes in the future. The reason games can turn on HDR is because they take over the entire display pipeline when launched in fullscreen - A browser can't do this currently afaik so if Windows is running in SDR and Chrome launches a HDR video Chrome has no way to tell Windows/the attached display to switch to HDR.

Thread HDR gaming on PC - What settings are you using?
Copy pasting something I wrote some time ago. You’ve probably been playing games or watching content in HDR via your PC, while missing a critical component – 10bit video. Windows 10, unlike game consoles does not auto-switch the bit depth of the outgoing video when launching HDR games. By default, both NVIDIA and AMD GPUs are configured to output RGB 8bit. You might be wondering “But my TV turns on its HDR modes and games look better” this is indeed true – HDR is a collection of different pieces that when working together create the HDR effect. Your PC is sending the WCG(Wide Color Gamut)/BT.2020 metadata as well as other information to the TV which triggers its HDR mode, but the PC is still only sending an 8bit signal. NVIDIA GPUs have some quirks when it comes to what bit depths can be output with formats. The list is as follows:What does this mean for you? Not much – 12-bit has the same bandwidth requirements as 10-bit. If you do require RGB/YUV444, and send a 12-bit signal to the TV, that signal still only is contains a 10-bit signal being sent in a 12-bit container. The TV will convert the signal back down to 10-bit. However, if you want to output true 10-bit, then you’ll need to step down to YUV422 signal. Again, not the end of the world. At normal TV viewing distances (and even in 4K monitors) it is very difficult to tell the difference between 4:4:4 and 4:2:2. This will make the switch seamless and does not require you to do any extra work. How to configure NVIDA GPUsThats it. Your GPU is now outputting YUV422 10-bit video to your TV or monitor. Now launch an HDR game and you’ll see the full 10-bit color depth!

Thread I might start streaming - advice needed
Thanks! The team worked really hard on this to bring something new and exciting to a rather stale market of microphones. The value of the mic itself is clear but once Wave Link is added to the mix its unbeatable. Let me know what you think of it and how its working for you once it arrives.

Thread LG announces new line-up of OLED TVs at CES 2020 (G-Sync compatible)
HDR/DV - Yes. Press the ok button on the remote, then press on the icon that pops up and it will read out the current signal as well as resolution. For FPS you need to go into the HDMI diagnostics menu. This is fairly easily done. 1. Open the channel menu 2. Highlight the top option 3. Press 1 five times in a row quickly The HDMI diagnostics overlay will come up. Here’s what it looks like on my CX 77.

The LG CX 77" is up on for a small fee of $8500... I don't remember the C9 77' ever being that expensive. Via Greentoe I got an offer for $3749 for the 77" C9 which is super tempting but I think im going to wait for the Rtings review of the CX first..

Having a device between the PS4 and TV could certainly introduce issues. Who knows how exact the metadata pass-through of the receiver is or if it messes with the signal otherwise. I also have a Denon receiver and set all my color ranges manually to make sure there are no issues. Im glad to see setting it manually worked for you!

I would suggest not trusting the automatic settings. Set the PS4 to full or limited to match what the TV is set to. If you don't want any issues and set and forget, then go with the limited/high setting. Note that in HDR the color range does not apply as its always limited (The signal going to the TV from the console is in YUV which is limited by default. color range only applies when sending an RGB signal)

Thread Elgato 4K60 S+ announced (PC-free recording at 4K 60FPS HDR, $399 USD, releases January 2020)
While the 4K60 S+ has no replay buffer on-device, the 4K Capture Utility which it comes with does. We call it Flashback. It has a time range of 4 hours down to 5 minutes. It’s always recording in the background and you can scrub back and start the recording at any point that you choose.

You can adjust the bit rate - resolution and FPS of the recording is based on the input. If the input is 1080p60, the recording will Be 1080p60. If the input is 4K60 HDR the recording is in 4K60 HDR. The SD card contains a file called settings.txt which lets you configure the standalone settings such as Bitrate, recording format, and the audio source (Line-in, HDMI)

No exactly...the encoder on the device encodes the incoming HDMI video so it can be transmitted via USB 3.0 or sent to the SD card. If you’re streaming, you still need to re-encode the video once you’re added your camera, overlays and other audio sources.

Due to the onboard encoder the latency is around 200ms. For comparison, our devices without an encoder have a latency of around 70-100ms.

Thread HDR games analysed
Yes, of course. the Xbox’s bit depth setting of 8, 10 or 12bit only works in SDR mode and seemingly has no effect on HDR. if a game is running in HDR the Xbox is sending 10bit. edit: to add to this: the bit depth settings in SDRare known to break the picture. You should never choose anything above 8bit. I’m not even sure why Microsoft includes those options.
