Black Screen/Dolby Vision bugs on UHD TVs
★★★★ Novice

Product: Anthem
Platform:PC
Please specify your platform model. PC
AMD or Nvidia Model Number NVIDIA GTX 1080
Enter RAM memory size in GB 8GB
Please select your region North America
Were you on an Expedition when the issue occurred? No
Where did this issue occur? Please include menu name or in game location. Game cannot even properly start or if I am able to I can only do so in borderless windowed with a very big hit to performance. Fullscreen only gives me a pink/purple screen
When did this happen? (dd.mm.yy hh:mm) 15.02.19 14:00
Summarize your bug My game cannot start. I get the Dolby Vision pop up and it goes to a black screen until I force shutdown my PC. Nothing works. Not alt+ctrl+del, not Alt+f4, not Alt+Tab. It forces me to have to shutdown my PC by force. It happens 100% of the time until I turn off the HDMI Deep Color UHD settings on my TV which I have never have to do so for any game or movie before. If I am able to force the config file to be on borderless windowed the game sometimes starts, about 80% of the time the black screen comes back, but when it doesn't the game play badly. Trying to go fullscreen makes the screen purple and pink.
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Just use an UHD TV with the game. AS far as I know this happened and was never acknowledged/fixed after the demo. I have a LG b7a.
What happens when the bug occurs? BLACKS SCREEN! Locks my computer. Even when I go back to borderless windowed and I get it to play a pink/purple screen I am forced to do a shutdown even after hours of having closed the game because it just messes with the HDR settings of my pc/tv.
What should be happening instead? I should be able to at least have an option to turn dolby vision/hdr off for the GAME not my TV or PC because it is causing harm to it with the multiple(20+) forced shutdowns. I should be able to see the game.

IS this really so stupid that you need to put text here but it doesn't tell you anywhere?
