Hello, I came here because I have read and asked questions about MPV but I still don't quite get why people use it (Other than HDR tone mapping??). I would however, like to know more about whether or not it can help me. I don't have a solid grasp on the common terminality used to describe poor picture properties but I'll do my best to describe what I see. As I have said before quite a few of the cable channels we watch look pretty crappy. My main issues are that the picture always looks a little blurry, and some channels start to get blocky. Faces and skin tone in particular lack detail, the channel logo and text in the bottom right hand corner of the national geographic channel gets blocky or pixelated (Not the channel logo I get from emby but the overlay that is broadcast in the channel itself). Some channels are broadcast at 720 P while others are 1080i.
I have seen references to a mpv.conf file that sets the player's upscaling algorithms, and possibly other picture enhancing qualities. Is there some way that MPV can upscale my resolution to 1080P, and sharpen, and clean up my cable signal in Emby Theater? Does MPV do anything for users who are still watching 1080 SDR content? Right now I'm using JRiver Media Center with Mad VR, and it does a great job of this but the channel changes are a little weird, and I would just rather have one media center across each device to make my life that much easier. Thanks.
