If Richer Sounds come through with an exchange, what are the best options LGB7?

pmeae forgive the slightly off-topic but I’ve been following the HLG/EDID/HDR10+ issues for a year and I’ve finally had enough holding out for some customer service from Samsung. RIcher Sounds seems to be honouring the mis-selling, hats off to them, they will get some depreciation and an upgrade cost from me sonit’s In their interests too. Any advice gratefully received.

1. That's the present tense, not a statement of their plans. 

2. It's factually wrong in that we know the KS TVs DO support HLG when the connected device doesn't check the EDID!

 


But that is the issue in that state that the ks will not be able to receive Hlg over HDMI. 


 

Yes and I'm saying it's not news, and it's not a statement that "they will not fix the EDID", so please stop saying that they said they wouldn't fix the EDID. We don't need to introduce any more misunderstandings where there are none.

Eh? We know for certain that it does (present tense), but it's a very expensive work-around that I would not go for.

 

but does it not leave a sour taste that they will not update the edid? 

IF, IF, IF they do not update the EDID which we do not yet know and they did not say that they would not, yes of course. The whole fiasco does.

 

Let's just take a breath. We have a statement that we could have had 6 months ago, it's taken 6 months, but it doesn't affect the world-wide EDID bug and it doesn't even refer to it.

 

 


i am not sure if we read the de thing,  but that statement was clear in it saying that all ks TVs would not be able to receive Hlg over HDMI!

Ok,  I'll settle down a bit.

May I ask what the absolute current state of play is with regards Sky Italia?   Are Italian Sky users reverting to using HD Furys to watch Sky HDR on their KS sets?  Anyone know?

I believe not much has changed since HDR launched there. People who have an integral are using that and people who don’t are having to make do with SDR.

 

although multiple sources in Italy and America have said they have been told Samsung is working on a fix, one contact referred to somebody at DirecTV engineering discussing the issue with Samsung.

Thanks.   And what's the exact score with Virgin,  have they started HDR transmissions yet?

I agree that it say's it does not support Hlg over HDMI. I can not see where they are saying they are still working on a fix. It says to me,  that is it and don't expect anymore. So that just leaves devices that don't ask for edid info or the fury and has anyone here actually got one and can say it does actually work.

If that was the case why did @AntS not say that. We keep hearing rumors but unless its official I would take it with a pinch of salt. @AntS said that the ks would not be able to receive Hlg via HDMI. No we are working on it but you will not be able to. I think that is quite clear

How do we test,  what with?  I'm on the cusp of getting one.
