Lightroom Classic: - R5 files Edit in PS colors incorrect with Color Fidelity profiles

In LRClassic 2020, when i "edit in Photoshop" any R5 files with a Color Fidelity Profile, the colors are incorrect and desaturated in Photoshop. If however I export to hard drive first, the file is correctly exported and the colors are also correct. It's almost as if no profile is applied if i "edit in Photoshop"

What do you have set for Color Settings in Photoshop with respect to RGB Working Space and Policies?

@andrew_rodney 

working space is ProPhoto, and preserve for all. To be clear, this only happens with R5 files with CF profiles in LR, does not happen with Adobe Color, or any other file/profile combination.

Desaturated with ProPhoto RGB sounds like at least in PS, color management is off and maybe it's your display profile. 

First, try disabling GPU in the preferences (Preformance tab). Any better?
If not, recalibrate and build a new ICC display profile, the old one might be corrupted.
If you are using software/hardware for this task, be sure the software is set to build a matrix not LUT profile, Version 2 not Version 4 profile.
If turning OFF GPU works, it's a GPU bug and you need to contact the manufacturer or find out if there's an updated driver for it.

Hi Andrew, thanks for your comments, but unfortunately i'm way ahead of these first steps. Tried all of the above, disabling the GPU on both LR and PS, verifying, remaking v2 profiles (v4 doesnt really play nicely in all circumstances) etc, etc. 

It is indeed a bug in LR. You can solve/test the issue by ENABLING auto write changes to xmp files. That somehow solves the issue for the time being. The maker of the Color Fidelity Profiles got back to me that another user figured out the workaround.

Best to export a DNG with all edits AND profile so other's can test. I don't have such a document on this end to see what might be going on. 

Why do you not have auto-write XMP on?

The reason i don't have autowrite on is because i frequently select 10's or 100's of images and then repeatedly make batch corrections on a set, and i find that with autowrite on, it slows down my process. I prefer to select all and CMD+S at the completion of a project to generate and then move all of the small xmp's to my servers.

From the Color Fidelity maker Colin, It's his understanding that Adobe is aware of this issue and it will be fixed in the next update.
