[KS OWNERS ONLY] Sky to introduce HDR content on Sky Q from March

I've just updated to 1239 firmware on my KS9500.  I have a Roku+ and wonder if there is any way to test the HLG, given we don't have Sky HLG yet in the UK?


Use a websocket client to see if the Sky Q box sees an HLG enabled TV.  In a websocket client, type ws://192.168.0.xx:9006/as/system/status    where 192.168.0.xx is the IP address of the Sky Q box

 

Should see an HDMI section like this - so just check if "SinkHLG is true.

 

"hdmi": {
"2160p10bitCapable": true,
"authenticatedHDCP": "2.2",
"sinkHDCP": "2.2",
"sinkHLG": true,
"sinkUHD": true,
"state": "available",
"uhdConfigured": true
},

if on google chrome there is a websocket client extension you can add

if on android there is a good websocket client app

Too much over my head so not bothering.   I have no doubts about my Sky Q  box not working properly now,  as and when they start to transmit HDR / HLG

So i've just installed FW1239 on my KS7000 and checked the Sky Q box using the websocket client and I can confirm:

 

"sinkHLG": true,

 

We finally got the fix! Just need Sky to launch HDR now!

Just ask samsung helpdesk to send it out to you. I did it via webchat.
