iPlayer HLG/UHD HDR on Samsung’s J and K Series TVs

Navigator

Yes I believe the gamma curve that was wrong on the hd fury and also a roku was also parent on 2018 TVs as well

 

i hope they fixed this at the same time probably on the 2018 TVs and it was a case of using this on the 2016 TVs 

 

no no doubt sky who wer testing the update would have spotted if the gamma curve was incorrect

Sorry but wha does this mean? Are all our worries about the KS series over and we can look forward to receiving hlg over hdmi and our apps gettin refreshed? Perhaps not iPlayer but is there a chance of this happening? I’m confused as people are a saying this is good news and whole reason for this thread is regarding our KS TVS not being updated for hlg.so we have finally got what we wanted?

It appears that Samsung has been working with Sky Italia to fix HLG over HDMI to allow the KS (and others?) range work with Sky Q HLG HDR.  From what I can ascertain the knock on effect would be a general fix HLG over HDMI for all conncted devices.  This would mean that, for example, the Virgin Media V6 would be able to send HLG to the KS whenever the BBC continue with there UHD HDR trials.  Apps would not need to be refreshed as HLG is already supported in apps such as YouTube but will never work on the internal iPlayer app.

I am assuming you are talking 55inch?  If so then you will struggle, closest of the 2018 TVs would probably be the Sony xf9005 which is £1200ish and even then I expect the upgrade to be marginal at best. You may get lucky though and find a store which still has stock of some 2017 oleds. These will be a decent upgrade, again you are talking approx £1200 

 

 

 

cheers

My current is only 43 inch, so I've got a bit of wiggle room

Have you looked on the ks owners refund more info thread?  Might give you some options.

I'll take another look! Managed to get offered £540 off Curry's, but I want to try and push for a full £700 then get a new TV. Going to post all my material on their too, fed up of Curry's
