I think the Roku stick was on the list of supported devices on the Blue Planet trial - does anyone have one of these and able to confirm if this did play HLG through the HDMI/TV?


HLG was not supported on Roku Plus and 4k resolution unimpressive, according to @crashcrishttps://eu.community.samsung.com/t5/TV-Audio-Video/Blue-Planet-2-HLG-No-Samsung/m-p/374945#M6972  Page 78 of this thread,original full details on page 14.

My retailer has responded. Has said they have communicated directly with Samsung and now wish to connect me with them to resolve the situation. That does not  sound hopeful but  I will know more tomorrow. Sounds like a potential brush off as can't see how Samsung will wave a magic wand...and anyway would prefer to deal with retailer rather than Samsung. 

Ants - what is Samsungs intentions (and when) around this "list"?

I would reply you will listen but remind the retailer that under the Oct 2015 European Consumer regs they are responsible for the misrepresentation and if Samsungs resolution is a free Smart Things connect worth £50 that still will not enable the TV to be connected the IOT, I would say no thanks because it does not resolve the situation. If you look back another member  @daleski75 was offered the Hub from Samsung which he declined as a solution and was given £550 + in vouchers from Curry's. They again are trying their best to wiggle out of this. It seems that Richer Sounds and JL seem to be doing the right thing, Curry's just need a little bit more of a push. Thing to remember is they have not said no, but are saying they want to resolve it, which to me is they are admitting they are in the wrong. That's all we need. Is there any chance you could post their actual reply for us to see their wording as it may help to go forward.

Thanks

I don't have written response yet which I will insist upon. Retailer is JL. Yes I understand about the misrepresentation so won't   be letting JL off the hook. And yes, I suspect Samsung will offer me a free connect. If you can repoint me at limitations of the Smartthings connect that would help. I will share formal response from JL when I get it. I have only progressed this by phone  after chasing my initial (written) correspondence which was left unanswered

The Samsung Smart Things hub is a way to control the IOT with your smart phone. You are not able to connect your TV to the hub without the Smart Connect Dongle which Samsung are not now supplying. That means the ability to control the iOT from your TV as advertised is nill. So the hub is useless if you want to use the TV as the center of you smart IOT which their sites said you would be able to do with the free dongle.

It may be worth asking them the direct question, do they accept now that the web information is incorrect and therefore t. It would be interesting to ask them if they now accept that the information on the wep page was and still is incorrect and they misrepresented the product, as per the Oct 2015 European Consumer Regs. It will now be very interesting to see their response, and how they reply to that.

Hlg HEVC does not work on 2016 or 2015 Samsung TV's. It does work on LG and Panasonic 2016 models, full stop. That is why this thread is here!

I have tried with external player using HDMI 2.2 which passes through HDR10 which my  KS9500 recognises, but it will not recognise HLG HEVC samples.
