Auto HDR Issue?

I'm noticing that when I close out a game that normally would be pre-hdr support, that my desktop HDR is turned off and I have to go in and manually turn it back on each time. Is anyone else noticing this? Is this an auto-HDR issue?

*edit* This was moved to the "devices and drivers" forum, but I don't think it has do with devices or drivers.

Well, lets have a look.

Which graphics card are you currently using? Nvidia or AMD? If you are using Nvidia, check the Nvidia control panel for a "HDR and Advanced Color" setting. When your screen reverts to HDR off, what is this setting in the Nvidia control panel?

Also try the screen at a lower resolution, either in game or on the desktop. Report back with your findings.

another thing to look at, would be to run the game in compatibility mode by choosing an older version of the Operating System. The following article advice is written for Windows 10, but similar for Windows 11:

I have an nvidia card... I don't see any "HDR and advanced color" settings in the nvidia control panel. My HDR is set in the Windows "display" settings, and when exiting these games is automatically set to off.

My question is... would this be related to the auto HDR feature that was recently added to Windows... anyone else have experience with this same problem?

Il be honest, i had this issue once upon first install, I actually just went into the nvidia control panel and changed my colors manually there and it then reflected so in the windows hdr settings, hasnt auto turned off or anything since

Thanks for the reply. It's weird that I'm not seeing the HDR settings in the nvidia control panel.

image_2021-07-08_040236.pngoption 3 i believe, use nvidia colour settings, make sure its set to the same as the ones that are greyed out on mine, Once i saved it there and went back to windows settings and re-enabled it, i didnt have the issue again

Yeah, I had those set, but for some reason I don't have the 10bit option, only 8. I can definitely set the HDR on, and it's in effect in movies, games that support it and the desktop, etc... but when I exit those games that are pre-HDR (the ones auto-HDR promises to give support), it is turned off.

Thanks. A Turing card like that ought to be capable.

It's an HDMI 2.1. I think I have a DP to HDMI I might try just to see what happens. I mean, the HDR is working fine, it just has that problem with shutting off after a non-HDR compliant game. Not the end of the world, but something I would like to fix if it's possible... I'm sure you guys know what I mean.

Yeah your hdmi 2.1 isnt the issue for sure, doubt the cables bugged to only using 8 bit lol, It is really strange that that happens, ive actually tried to replicate it by turning on and off all my settings etc to see if i can get it to do the same and it just wont. In the nvidia control panel where it says RGB just under 8 BIT, change that to different options within there and see if it gives you the option to change to 10 bit on the colour depth

I guess it must be my monitor, which is actually a Samsung tv... but it is supposed to have HDR10 support.

I'm finding that if I change the resolution to 4k 60, it offers me 10bit color in the nvidia control panel... but I don't like to run the desktop at 4k, because of the ocean of scaling issues (such as mouse looks all messed up at 250% scaling, just one example), etc...

Run it at 150% that should be the recommended and it should fix the problem

I run an Asus PA329C (32" PC monitor) at 3840X2160 @ 60 Hz. The screen is maybe 2' (60cm) from my face. Scale 150%, mouse pointer "magnified, system scheme". I'm happy with those settings. I rarely turn on HDR, although it's available. Radeon RX 6900 XT. (I miss the nVidia control panel. The AMD "adrenaline" software is baroque, by comparison.)
