Please note that by default the Graphics Controller will take care of all functions in the system unless you have a switchable graphics computer.
Under the Graphics Control panel you can set different settings but it when opening the PowerDvD the settings must be set under the program directly.
Thanks for the reply Kevin, but I'm not following you.
- What do you mean by a "switchable graphics computer"?
- I did associate the PowerDVD app with a specific profile that contained the settings I wanted the display to switch to (24Hz 1080p). when in the graphics properties I see the settings follow the profile as it should, but when launching PowerDVD the properties do not change as they should to match the profile.
Here you can find information about the Hybrid Graphics systems:
Can you please tell me step by step the way you configured the Graphics Control Panel to keep the settings for PowerDVD.
Here's the process I used to try to create a profile that does the following:
- Set refresh rate to 24Hz (1080p 60Hz are default resolution and refresh rates)
- Launch PowerDVDCinema.exe with the above profile
- Enter Intel HD Graphics Control Panel>Profiles
- Under "Select Trigger" I choose "Application" from the drop-down field
- Under "Applicatons" I browse to the PowerDVDCinema.exe file (c:\Program Files (x86\Cyberlink\PowerDVD15\Movie\PowerDVD Cinema\PowerDVDCinema.exe
- Under Settings I select ALL options (Display became unselected when I chose Application as the trigger)
- I click "Save" and name the profile "24Hz"
- Exit to Home page saving settings
- Enter Intel HD Graphics Control Panel>Display
- Under "Select Profile" I choose my "24Hz" profile
- Under "Refresh Rate" I select "24p Hz" and click Apply.
I try to test this profile by launching PowerDVDCinema, but the refresh rate does not change, as if the profile is ignored.
Thank you for providing me with this information. I will set this lab and I will be back soon with more information.
Can you please attach here your graphics report?
How to get it?
Graphics Report: Right click on desktop> Graphics Properties> Options> Drop Down Menu> Information Center> Save> Attach using Advanced Editor Options.
I have been testing this NUC and I am able to set up the profile as you did. When I open the Display Tab to select the profile it is selecting it and applying the settings.
I tested this with the latest graphics driver version 4222 and version 4170 and it was working fine. I think you should contact our email or chat support for further Graphics assistance.
Manually creating and selecting a custom profile wasn't an issue. What I expected to happen is when assigning the profile to an application, the profile would be activated when the application is executed. Did this occur for you?
No, this did not happen but let me check internally if it should have applied all changes and I will be back with more information.
