Did they also commit to fixing the HLG gamma curve by the end of August as well?

regardless of the gamma it has got to be better than ITV's current effort, luckily there are plenty of 4k offerings via other countries on sat, including in HLG

 

cheers

If there is a fix in August then I think this thread may have done it's job for some owners. Still gutted about iplayer but if l can get it cheaply from other sources then i will have to live with that. Funny thing as to @AntS  saying it would not be able to fix Hlg over HDMI !!! Any comments ?

As to your comment about ITV yes I agree they are years behind bbc. No DD5.1 and their ITV hub is still SD.  Very poor,  and I did ask them about it and was told 'we have no plans' heard that before. 

Might be worth starting a focus group to put pressure on them? ??

Doesn't BBC say their World Cup streams will be in stereo audio?

August, eh? Sure, why not. At this point, it's far enough in the future to keep us all quiet and they can hope we've got bored and bought new sets by then.

 

I'll believe it only when I have the cash receipts in my grubby hands.

 

PS: the ITV HD sat quality on the Russia game was woeful, an engineer at work was speculating it might have been 720p/50.

Yes, I have a comment. As I said on that day, and quoted him verbatim. I'll repeat it again.

He did not say that the edid fix will definitely not happen.

His message was to not get our hopes up.

This is not the same thing. If the fix never arrives, then it will be the same result, but the two phrases are not the same.

 

Think of it as the difference between these two answers when the ice-cream van chimes and a small child asks their parents for a Mr Whippy:

"NO!"

"Don't get your hopes up"

 

The first is an absolute; a statement without any restriction or condition.

The second is not.

He said the second. He did not say the first.

There is nothing to be gained from misrepresenting him.

I am sure @AntS can answer for himself and get off you high horse!!! !!

Just over a week ago on page 337 of this thread AntS wrote -

“2016 SUHD TV’s support UHD HDR HLG via Broadcast, Satellite & Terrestrial & from USB, not any other source. They do support UHD HDR via HDMI, just not when encoded using HLG.”

 

was the response I received when I asked the engineers about EDID and other ways of delivering HLG on a KS Series TV. I’d be very much inclined to interpret the above as no action will be forthcoming for enabling further means of HLG support on KS Series TV's."

 

Meanwhile 10 hours ago today @Stormed...reported this message from Sansung- "Upon checking, your TV supports HDR (High Dynamic Range) and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) from 4K contents via external devices connected through HDMI cable."

 

Which directly contradicts what @AntS wrote.

 

I think, however that Samsung in their statement to @Stormed wrote HDMI instead of USB. I think it was a slip of the mind and finger.

 

I hope I'm wrong otherwise how else can you explain such differing statements both coming from Samsung?

So was anyone able to watch the Russia/Saudi Arabia game in HDR?
