So, in summary. If you adjust the backlight down to something like 10 (or whatever you use for SDR viewing), then you’ll get a better picture, in 4K, with a wider colour gamut, but unfortunately without the higher dynamic range. And also about 75 seconds behind the live BBC1 channel.


Mkae sure dynamic contrats is off.  To me its not too bright.

Totally agree.  Portugals red kit look fine.  Ok the colour space may be off but it still looks great.

The colour space looks okay, it’s the gamma curve that’s off.

Please don't speak for everyone - turning the back light down,  reduces the quality here,  significantly.   In fact I'd say the PQ so far tonight is better even than this afternoon.

So can I confirm 4K HDR is working fine for iPlayer through this Roku stick?

 

Not ideal to have to go and spend £60 on another device but better than having to go and shell out for a new TV I suppose.

 

Certainly won’t be going Samsung again when it comes time to upgrade. Between this and the issue with switching between HDR and non HDR content in Game Mode their support/customer service has been an absolute scandal for £1000+ models of TV!

I agree it looks great running on the Roku SS+ on my 49” KS7000. I’ve left backlight on 20 and it doesn’t look too bright even in a dark room, dynamic contrast is off for all my HDR settings.

 

Just flicked between this and regular BBC One HD and it’s a huge improvement, even on my 25mb connection.

Changing colour to warm 1 looks better

Only issue I'm having with the Roku is that every few minutes the screen goes black for a few seconds - just picture not the sound.  Not sure if its the Roku or my AV amp.  At half time will attach to OCB.
