I am running Lightroom 5 on Windows 8.1. I calibrate my monitor using the Xrite i1 display 2. When I am in the slideshow module the colors are way off i.e. colors are under staurated, dull and lacking constrast. The colors are good in both the library module and in development module. This happened when I recently upgraded from Lightroom 3 a few months ago. This makes the slideshow module basically unusable for me.
Anyone else have this problem and knows how to solve this? Is this a bug? If so, how do I report it?
Any advice or help appreciated.

Anyone else have this problem?
Yes - exactly as you've described, win7 - all versions of Lr5 starting with the beta.
know how to solve this?
No. - I use ShowBiz as work-around.
Is this a bug?
Perhaps somebody could rationalize it as a feature, but it's a bug as far as I'm concerned.
how do I report it?
I reported it during the Lr5 beta, but if you want to start a new one, here's where:
Yes, same as Paul and Rob describe. LR 5.3, Windows 7, monitor calibrated with Datacolor Spyder.
How could it be anything other than a bug when the images look so terrible during slideshow playback?
Exactly the same problem, LR 5.3 and monitor calibrated with Datacolor Spyder.
The problem started with LR 5.0.
As a temporary workaround, until Adobe solves the problem, I am viewing the pictures in full screen mode (F key) and jumping to the next/previous photo with arrow keys.
In "manual" fullscren mode colors are fine, but in slideshow mode colors are washed out. It sounds like a colorspace bug.
I also have this problem. LR 5.3, Windows 8.1, monitor calibrated with Datacolor Spyder. I agree with other posters - this is TERRIBLE and ruins the whole slideshow feature for me. In Develop and Library modules the pictures look good, but a HUGE difference in color and contrast on the slideshow view.
