One thing I have yet to try is the SHARK codecs so I will do that tonight.

Re: Can you get HDR on windows 7 4K UHD MKV playback ?

Thank you for trying to work through this with me doozah, it's very much appreciated. I also have been scouring the internet for answers and I will look at the links you posted.

Here is another guide I found, so far three guides and they all use quite different settings and approaches, it's hard to know which ones will work for me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5rmXHymmnk

Re: Can you get HDR on windows 7 4K UHD MKV playback ?

Loaded up the HTPC last night, and tried both methods described the in videos you posted with mixed results. The good news is that I WAS able to force my television into HDR mode - so that answers my question on if it is possible in Win 7. The bad news is that it was either extremely laggy and/or my...

Re: Can you get HDR on windows 7 4K UHD MKV playback ?

Thanks dooz, you've been a ton of help. Have you yourself been able to play 4K UHD MKV using the method you are suggesting or is this a best guess to get it working ?

If I use the Shark codecs (advanced I imagine ?) How will I know what settings to use ? Which boxes to check and uncheck so to speak, it sounds easy to install Shark and then MPC-BE but certainly there is more to it than that. Will I have to modify everything to my specific hardware setup ? If so, I...

Can you get HDR on windows 7 4K UHD MKV playback ?

Hi everyone, I have a Win7 HTPC that I have used for a few years to playback ripped BD (via MakeMKV) using EMBY as my media manager, and WMC as my player. I recently purchased a 'UHD friendly' optical drive to try ripping some of my 4K UHD. Will I need to upgrade to Win 10 to get HDR capability for ...
