I use my Samsung 4K television with HDR enabled in my tv settings and enabled in Windows but when I start up Retroarch,RA disables it on my tv. When I exit RA, it is enabled again. Retroarch is the only program I use that does this. I guess RA does not really need HDR enabled but when RA exe is starting I get some strange artifacts on the screen for a few seconds which I guess is when RA disables HDR and then the game loads up and plays normally. When I exit RA, HDR is enabled again. I was just wondering if there is a way around this because I worry about constantly having HDR enabled and disabled when loading and exiting games might cause some damage long term? Of course I can just disable HDR in windows or my television but then I would lose it when watching HDR movies or playing HDR games as well.
HDR requires a few things that RetroArch does not / cannot currently provide, so yes, it will switch away to non-HDR. This won’t cause any damage to your TV, as it’s something they have to be able to do constantly anyway to suit mixed ranges among different content.
Gotcha,thanks for the quick reply.
