Thanks.   And what's the exact score with Virgin,  have they started HDR transmissions yet?


I believe they have. But the edid is an issue.

There is nothing to test with yet, no connected devices send HLG that ask for EDID, that is until the World Cup starts as I’m sure the virgin box will ask.

I assume the boffins in Korea or wherever are working on the fix and AntS has got the previous generic answer from a lower tier operator

 

as I bought my tv in July 16 I from crampton and Moore I can’t see how I can get a refund as hlg was not even known then

I won’t be buying a new tv worse case is I will get a hd fury integral

All that’s  been proved is that the integral can be used to spoof the EDID so that the Sky Q box sends HDR, this was done by tarbat in the Sky HDR thread:

Yes it does ask.  I have a Virgin box.  It plays UHD HDR fine from Netflix (and 24 Hz) but the iPlayer UHD demo is SDR.

With the integral he said he injected an HLG infoframe into the signal so that the TV ‘thinks’ it’s receiving an HLG signal, obviously when sky actually launch HDR all the integral will need to do is alter the EDID.

Which makes sense as @AntS said that hdr over HDMI works which is does. But he also said Hlg over HDMI will not work so even if the iplayer on virgin is updated it still will not work on the ks as @AntS told us. 

It actually makes me smile when there some some say that hdr and Hlg were the same thing. How wrong they were.

Does it not say a lot about Samsung in that they will not do that and save there customers extra expense and inconvenience if figuring out how to use the fury. Think refund is the way to go if possible.

They are not really wrong as HLG is an HDR standard same as HDR10 and Dolby Vision :->  But I know what you mean!
