  • [NVIDIA Image Scaling][DirectX 11 video apps]: With Image Scaling enabled, video playback is corrupted or results in a system hang after performing an HDR transition.

Disable HDR in case it’s enabled from the Microsoft Control Panel, then enable Image Scaling, apply the Image Scaling resolution on the desktop and revert back to native resolution. b. If the previous instructions do not work, then disable HDR in case it’s enabled from the Microsoft Control Panel, enable Image Scaling and apply the Image Scaling resolution on the desktop and then reboot the system.
