iPlayer HLG/UHD HDR on Samsung’s J and K Series TVs

Explorer

Still waiting on my USB stick. How long did everyone's take?

I got mine today, oh wait there was no usb pen in the package just a letter saying what to do. Typical Samsung can't even get posting a simple usb pen right!

I applied on 28th Nov and I'm still waiting.

I contacted them yesterday and they said

their records say "Sent on 28th" . They also

said that it is done within UK by a third party.

They confirmed address was correct. Guy

on phone was apologetic and said he would

chase it up.

Maybe I missed something, but what USB is everyone talking about?

 

I have a KS8000 and would love to enable HLG over HDMI for my camera, which is recording that standard.

 

Thanks!

Think you need to go back a few pages and read.

So, if I understand it correctly, the USB is to update the firmware to 1239 which will enable HLG over HDMI on the KS series from 2018?

 

Why did Samsung only just release 1231 officially? Will the 1239 be pushed at a later time for everyone?

What about 1240? I read that there were some issues with HLG which were only fixed for some in 1240.

Good news for fans of the BBC Dynasties series. Originally, the BBC website stated that the UHD Iplayer streams were to be stopped on the 11/12/2018, which would have been tomorrow. However I just checked again and they now say "Each episode will be available to watch in Ultra HD after the programme is shown on BBC One until Tuesday 8 January. After this date, only the HD and SD versions will be available on BBC iPlayer." https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/help/latest-news/dynasties-uhd

 

So at least all of you awaiting the USB with the update for your KS tellies will still have plenty of time to watch the beautiful series in all its UHD HDR glory.

Still no USB stick for 1239.1   I applied on 28 Nov. It is now 11 Dec.

I have phoned them a few days ago and they said it was sent on 28th.

I'll try phoning again tomorrow.
