When I moving powerDVD to SDR, it showing your display driver is mismatched.

I have Installed latest graphic driver for gtx970. still that error not going.

I already tested with other bluray media players,But they are playing fine with smooth and no washout image quality(off course down converted to SDR)
But why not powerDVD?

You need Windows 10 and your cpu is too old to have the proper graphics. See this FAQ for more info: https://www.cyberlink.com/support/faq-content.do?id=24170 and this recent post: https://forum.cyberlink.com/forum/posts/list/81087.page for the answer.

Alright! my CPU is old, my GPU is also old for support full 4K "HDR" format but those are not old enough to play in "SDR" format

Why I have to upgrade my pc in to windows 10 just for play 4k blu-ray in SRD format?
There are so many free blu-ray players out there(I don't want to mention those names here) which can play fine in SDR format at windows 7!

PowerDVD is shareware app,it must have much bigger advantage for users than other freeware, but for this case it looks like completely oppositeundecided
