Hello, I recently got home from working abroad, so when I came, I made my pc again to do the usual stuff like gaming and watching some stuff. Everything was like usual, set up my pc, keyboard, mouse, 2 monitors and TV. Monitors are connected through display port and tv - hdmi port. Everything is fine, works as it should like playing games, watching youtube, nothing changed. The problem starts on TV.

Whenever I watch some movies or animes through mpc-hc it stutters pretty often. For example, if the picture goes from down to up (like scenery, I guess) it starts to stutter or flicker, I dont know right terminology, but essentially its like cut, and video is like too slow to catch.

I tried different players like vlc, windows player and built in windows players, but nothing helped, although interesting part was that flickering was little bit different, could say it was even less, but not non-existent. I am trying to use mpc-hc, because it has better quality thanks to madvr plugin.

Other thing that I had in mind that I could test on some 4k hdr movie like Joker. It was even worse flickering and it didn't give me hdr at all and then I checked hdr setting in windows and it says that my tv doesn't support hdr which is completely not true, because it's hdr10.

Tried switching sockets of hdmi to different ones and it didn't help at all. As well tried to play with refresh rate to see if it help and it didn't. Another interesting fact is that when I was switching refresh rate, the flickers started to be different like on 23 hertz it was different from 50 hertz. Did reset on tv itself like set up from scratch and it didn't help as well. Tried with settings in mpc-hc madvr plugin, but it had 0 reaction whatsoever.

When I watch like something on youtube or twitch on TV it's not a problem, there's no flickering or anything, works as it should.
I asked in other forum about this problem and they suggested to try changing video decoder to none, but it didn't help. I think it shouldn't help because when I watch through player on my gaming monitor, it works perfectly fine, so the problem should be something with playing on a player on TV specifically.

I have ran out of options what to do, I don't know any people that could help me with this kind of a problem, that's why I'm coming here to ask for help.
I can provide photos or video if needed to help resolving this problem, because it's really annoying to watch anything on player, doesn't matter what is it.
My pc is:

i7 8700k
Gigabyte 1080 ti
tridentZ Royal 3600mhz 32gb
msi m5 z370
Corsair cs850m
Samsung evo 850 250gb
TV Samsung NU 7 series 65 inch

Appreciated any help that you could provide. Thank you!

Yeah, I tried to put the settings to Nvidia control, but unsuccessful.

About the hdr thing, thanks, I figured out what was wrong there, mpc-hc usually puts automatically hdr content on hdr itself if LAV filters are installed properly and I didn't have them installed before, but when I did, it went back to how it used to be.

Another thing is that I checked is to put another GPU and test it. I have Gigabyte 970 and tried to figure out maybe it's the GPU issue, but not really. New thing that suddenly appeared is that when I have Wallpaper engine running from steam which makes like .gif wallpapers my programms are lagging like if I move them around it feels like I have 30 hz monitor, but when I turn it off everything goes to normal, but not 100%. Like if I minimize and put back up something like discord or anything it is still laggy. But when I tested 970 this exact problem wasn't occurring with Wallpaper engine although the issue with minimizing and maximizing was still there.

I can add that If I watch like anything on mpc-hc and I hover my mouse over playboard where you control time, volume, etc., the picture is just perfect, like it should have been. So I guess it goes like it should when it's not in full windowed. And again, as I said before, the problem is only on TV, but not my gaming monitor. For example, if I play Warzone everything works fine like temperature, power delivery, GPU clock. Talking about my monitor though. So it shouldn't be that my GPU is dying or something like that, right?

If reinstalling windows could solve my problem I would do that without hesitation, but I've noticed when problems like these happen, it doesn't help at all, because issue wasn't windows, but something with hardware itself or maybe BIOS.

Could it be maybe motherboard is doing something wrong or cables are loose though I checked and was fine I guess. There was one time that I had issue with loose cables on my pci-e that it was working on x2 3.0 not x16 3.0 like it should and it didn't deliver enough power for Warzone. Could the issue be in this nature? If I could I would just made a new system, but don't have enough money as well as you know the shortages of GPUs are tough.

Thanks for any help or any ideas!
