OBS colors messed up

Hi everyone,
When I record or stream in OBS colors are messed up, in particular, blacks are too black.
I made a photo of what I see vs what OBS sees (https://imgur.com/a/pjQDRwP)... It doesn't seem a problem of the source (preview in OBS is fine) but the problem comes up in the final video...
I'm sorry for my bad English, but I'm Italian and I'm not so fluent.

Here is my log: https://obsproject.com/logs/RoOamUQi9eFzOYdA

there will be always a different between what you see and what you record because of the conversion from RGB to YUV 4:2:0, beside that you need to set your color range to partial.

ah. I'm sorry for wating your time, setting color range to partial just solved the "problem"... I thought full color range would have made OBS better, but that's clearly not the case... So, I have a question, what is the utility of that? Maybe for recording HDR?

TVs operate in partial range and computer in full range, but the support in players and editors for full color range is most of the time lacking which causes problems like they always asume that footage is partial color range which causes problems like you experienced. With HDR that has nothing to do. HDR is the color space which would be rec.2020 instead of the rec.709 which obs uses with a 10 or 12 bit pipeline instead of 8.
