Ah good to hear.hdr isn’t 100 percent? Meaning what exactly? Is it still a major improvement in this respect.

and thanks mate. Will give that a try.

Meaning the colour balance isn't quite right. I think by tinkering with the Expert settings this can be mitigated - I'm going to have a good play with that during the 4pm game although Tarbat's suggestions of

 

- Dynamic Contrast OFF

- Gamma -3

- Backlight knocked down from 20 (to a number of your preference)

 

Are a good starting position.

 

Any other tips from anyone else?

Fantastic picture from Sochi for Belgium v Panama on the Roku SS+

 

Going to Gamma -3 makes a big difference. I've settled on

 

Backlight 20

Brightness 45

Contrast 100

Sharpness 20

Colour 50

Tint 50/50

Digital Clean View: Auto

Auto Motion Plus: Auto

Smart LED: High

Dynamic Contast: Off

Colour Tone: Warm 1

Gamme -3

RGB Only: Off

Colour Space: Auto

 

 

All very subjective I know but I hope that helps others.

That's a very nice picture, thanks for sharing.

Thanks.  I differed from the AVF recommendations by preferring Warm1 over their Warm2 and also took the recommendation from someone a few pages back about bumping the Colour up from 50 to 70 to compensate for the colour space issues on this feed, but that was based off yesterday's GER-MEX game where the stadium was largely dressed in white and with bright sunshine so the colours seemed a bit washed-out. I may tweak again for tonight's game.

Switching back to BBC One HD is funny - it's almost unwatchable in comparison!

 

I've only had one stream drop-out in the games I've watched so far, but this is still very much a work in progress from the BBC:

I'm just very glad they chose to offer it for the World Cup. The future is very bright.

I've settled on 63 for the Colour as the reds were just a bit too vivid at 70. But it looks great so thanks again.

Anyone got a PS4 or Pro that have iPlayer  app installed on?

 

Seeing a tweet (just the one) that it's now UHD compatible.
