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

...

So without the 1239 update those with an updated Roku + will no longer be able to watch HLG via the iPlayer app, without an Integral or equivalent

 


Ok,  so I update my Roku+ and am getting HDR HLG - job done!

Haven't a clue about Websocket stuff but cannot see my Sky Box not getting HLG when they start to transmit

Look that way.  I updated my Roku+ and with new 1239 firmware HLG works fine!

Updated mine this evening and tried Dynasties on iPlayer on my Virgin V6 box. This is what this TV was made for, the picture was stunning.

Thanks to @blenky I have the update. Before installing I did update the Roku+ software and as someone else reported, the HDR was then not engaged on Dynasties. It was back working though with this 1239.1 update so all good - it works! 

Christ, it’s been a journey!

I have messaged @blenky for a copy of the firmware.

I'm really looking forward to trying it out, anyone able to pm a link?

HLG HDR seems a waste for this programme though surely.

Got the USB disk from Samsung today.  So hopefully those who also went down that route should be getting theirs soon as well.
