    Windows 10 HDR bug - Pink pixelation and Banding

    Video - Windows 10 HDR bug - Pink pixelation and Banding in bright areas of the video - YouTube

    Pink Pixelation and banding in HDR Videos on my HDR TV (Even the preview video included in recent insiders build). Facing this on stable build also. I'm on latest Insider build, still the HDR playback isn't fixed since the Fall creators stable update. I experience all types pink pixelation on ground, sky and water which are moderately bright areas in a HDR video. TV completely supports HDR and it's a 10 bit panel. There's a lot of banding in sky. Tried various custom settings in Nvidia panel too but that doesn't help. In Netflix, pink moving pixilation goes on the face of Actors. For gods sake, demo video inbuilt for HDR in windows 10 also looks awful with banding and pink moving pixels in sky. Attached some screenshots and a video for reference. ***I played the same files on TV natively and it looks gorgeous with true HDR.

    Laptop - Acer Predator Helios 300
    Processor - Intel 7700HQ
    Graphics card - Nvidia 1050ti
