Default PowerDVD 21 help

So I upgraded to PowerDVD 21 from PowerDVD 12 (way behind I know). I have a Windows 7 desktop (never messed with monitor or picture settings since Iíve had it). And I'm watching the remastered Middle-earth films from the new box set and noticed the color difference right away isn't what it should look like. Say I put it in my PS4 and watch it on my TV on standard settings that I've never messed with, the color and everything looks great and pops and looks like the 4K versions even though it is Blu-ray. I'm currently on FotR extended disc 2 after watching The Hobbit films and FotR disc 1, and I noticed on PowerDVD 21 the color looks much more dark and with a blue tint to it. I went to the TruTheater setting and disabled the "video" option which was at default in the halfway mark, and noticed it looked less blue/dark, but still not on par with watching it on my TV. So I was wondering what settings I should do to get the standard picture the Blu-ray offer without PowerDVD making it look different? Any suggestions on what settings I should change or if I have to enable TruTheater video to change the color settings? It's just irritating me because I even brought up the film on my iPad on Movies Anywhere where I redeemed the codes for the remastered/4K films and the color and such looks amazing and matches my TV, but not on PowerDVD... I took pictures of the TruTheater settings if anyone needs to know the settings.

A quick search brought up this possible fix:
Quote:
1. Go to settings

--BluRay settings

----Advanced BluRay settings


2. Disable the Windows Aero option. From the website, this does the following:
Windows Aero

When playing Blu-ray Discs on a Windows 7/Vista computer, select the Windows Aero tab and then select Allow PowerDVD to automatically disable Windows Aero to optimize Blu-ray Disc playback to improve performance. Once playback is stopped, CyberLink PowerDVD re-enables Windows Aero.
