These are the SDR… although it is present in the HDR as well, just not as blatant. Turning up the VividPixel all the way in the OSD hides it quite a bit and so does HDR.
My only other experience with anything like it was on the Guest-mini and it seemed mask related. It also seems that way here because some combination of mask and TVL fixes it in all cases.
This is not really a solution though because changing theses essentially violates the intent of the preset.
It is not exactly the same issue I was having with Guest-mini. Here it stops at the bezel, in Guest-mini it went to the edge of the screen.
Guset-mini before the mask fix.
In this shot there aren’t really any highlights in the screen image so that confuses things.
I’m positive it is hardware related since it doesn’t show up on a screenshot, but I am loath to spend $1000 on new monitors without some proof that it will fix the issue. (It also seems more fiscally responsible to just not use these shaders.)
I wish at least one other user was reporting the issue.
It would be less frustrating if there was something unique about these displays… like some of the OLEDs with 4 sub pixels, but they are just standard RGB IPS monitors.
