So, of the nigh on 400 TVs supported in BBC iplayer for the Blue Planet II  HLG episodes none are from Samsung. Oh joy.

If you've used it, can you tell me which HDMI ports worked on the adapter? All of them? Or only a specific one?

The new firmware quoted is T-JZL6DEUC-1239.1  which appears to be for European Samsung KU series as the lastest for that range is T-JZL6DEUC_1230.5

Like a 4K blu ray player with BBC Iplayer app that sends a HLG signal out. The problem is as we know is that the KS cannot receicve a HLG source except it seems fury and ruko, but not virgin

I am not talking about just sky but any device that could send a HLG source via HDMI. At the moment the KS can not recieve HLG over HDMI unlike the Q series. We have been waiting for this update for ages and I found it hard to understand why it would take a company the size of Samsung to sort it. More like they just want us to buy new tellies. That is why the ks owners refund thread is quite popular.

I'm merely interested in Sky - like it or not,  they provide best entertainment packages in UK.   And my 65" KS9500  is as good as anything out there

If they fix it for Sky then they fix it for everyone,  but we keep are getting rumors,  but nothing,  that it's just around the corner then nothing,  so I will not believe anything until the mods here say something or someone here says it is working. I have been on this forum from the beginning and heard to many times that a fix is near, especially from our Italian friend. As I have said I will not be holding my breath.

Hi guys. Just to let you know that I received a request to remove the anti-spambot filter stuff for digital-forum.it - which I've duly done out of respect for their forum's security and good upkeep.

Hi AntS. Please advise whether the Italian firmware is coming to the UK? What it does and the timeline? Thanks Chris
