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

...

Moderator edit: Original thread title was "Blue Planet 2 HLG - No Samsung". With the OP's permission, the title was changed on 12/03/2018 to accurately reflect the dominant theme of the thread as it has progressed. If the reader would like to know more about the HLG format, please check out the BBC's page and FAQ's on it here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/rd/projects/high-dynamic-range Thank you, AntS.

.  It may show solved,  which it is not as there  is still iPlayer hlg,  but the thread would still be public. Do you want this erased? 

We've known for the best part of a year the TV is not capable of delivering HLG via the internal iplayer app - this isn't news, and nor even with the best will in the world is it ever going to change.

 

I'd be happier for a fresh start in a new thread and also a plea for the official release of the firmware to be accelerated as you have forum members doing the job of Samsung with distributing it!!!!

But you said I was demanding and you can say what you like but others cannot unless they agree with you?  You don't get it do you?  And this is why I'm asking (not demanding) for the thread to be closed.


You said you would only start a new thread if this one was closed. If that is not demanding then I do not know what is. 

Another member on this thread just asked this morning for a link so it is still being used by others.

Please don't close the thread.  It has proved extremely useful to me.

I am still waiting for my USB stick from Samsung UK so if Blenky could

be so kind could he please PM the link to me. It will be much appreciated.

I would also like to thank our friends in Italy who have rescued us all with

HLG via HDMI.

Both folders on the USB untouched.

 

I wish Samsung had just put the firmware on the site in the first place.

Apology for the off topic.  HLG over HDMI works great ( with ROKU Streaming stick ).   I have been paying both Amazon prime and Netflix HDR content through ROKU and I am finding the picture quality is worst than 4K content ( very Dim and grainy ) and have 60mbps wifi network connection  so its not Network issue.  My TV ks9500.   Is this because this TV does not support HDR10+?  Does anyone else have this same issue?

@AntS Whilst I am getting a little fed up with recieveing post full of pointless bickering, as far as I am concerned this isnt solved. The title says J and K series and it has only been solved for the K series. There are a lot of p***off J series owners who have spent a lot of money with Samsung.

For J series no new firmware for HLG. This says ERCOLINO.

What is the picture like with the on board Netflix app. 

When using the Roku does the TV kick into HDR mode full backlight. 

There is no HDR 10+ anywhere that I know off.

on board Netflix app quality is slightly worst than ROKU .  

Yes on ROKU HDR does kick in.  

I thought i read somewhere that Amzon prime and Netflix converted all the HDR content to HDR10+.  Perhaps misunderstood.  But regarless of HDR10+ , the HDR content looks worst than 4K content.
