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.

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!

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.
