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.
If this bug was ubiquitous (affected everyone, essentially making the slideshow feature approximately useless to all), why is it just now getting fixed? Or did it only affect some users I wonder (that was my previous assumption).
Now I just need to decide if I want to ween myself from ShowBiz .
Thanks be to Adobe regardless...
PS - the release note mentions one other slideshow bug that was fixed - were there more which escaped the doc?

Warning... LR5.4 slideshow colour is still buggy.
I have been waiting and waiting for Adobe to fix this, so I was thrilled to see this news.
I've downloaded and installed 5.4 and the slideshow is better, but it is NOT fixed enough for production use.
I have just finished editing a shoot and watched the slideshow. Any images that are still RAW it displayed perfectly with the correct colour, but most images that I edited in Photoshop it displayed incorrectly (the same way that 5.3 and previous 5.x versions would display the weird colour). Some it displayed correctly, but most it didn't.
The ones it displayed incorrectly looked wrong in the Slideshow module BEFORE watching the slideshow, but if I viewed the image in the Slideshow module (without the slideshow playing), then switch to Develop module and back to Slideshow, that image suddenly shows the correct colour and then if I play, it shows correctly in the Slideshow. If I do the same for the other images that displayed incorrectly (view image in slideshow module, switch to develop and switch back to slideshow) then they also displayed correctly.
Almost there Adobe... please get these bugs out! Back to exporting to JPEG and using Photo Mechanic for the slideshow...
Windows 7 x64
The photos are being edited in CC in Prophoto RGB, 16bit TIFF, no compression
