Seen this article just now https://www.ispreview.co.uk/index.php/2018/02/sky-uk-unveils-next-wave-sky-q-tv-feature-upgrades.htm... and it will be very interesting to see if our televisions get HDR content through Sky Q.
Not seen anything yet about the format but assuming its HLG.
Will keep this thread as up to date as I can.
This may sound like a stupid question and apologies if I've missed some of the background but why aren't you plugging all of your devices into the back of the Yamaha AVR and then just the Yamaha itself into the One Connect box?
Hi @dunwell , thank you for taking an interest in this. It is so we can watch, in particular Sky Q, without having to listen to our whole Surround Setup (HTS). When the Receiver is in Standby, it continues to pass the Video through to the TV and I have an Optical lead from the Sky Q box to a Sony Sounbar, which feeds a small sub. My better Half doesn't want full surround sound on all the time lol. But I have a Harmony Hub, setup with Activities, which she can execute on either the Harmony Remote or on her phone but has the benefit of using the Sky Remote too. I had hoped the Sky Q wouldn't suffer from this toggling necessity and I would just put up with it for my other 2 devices. But I've got the bit between my teeth now to try and ascertain what the problem is. I have known this has been an issue for the Roku and Amazon devices for well over a year now but I'm hoping there may be a solution.
Have you tried pressing the home button on your remote, move left to the settings cog and then up to sound output. You can cycle through the different sound outputs. I have all divices plugged in AVR and one HDMI to my one connect box. I tried this and it works the only issue I had was when I went from TV audio back to HDMI audio I had to re select cbl/sat on my receiver for the audio to play through my speakers. I'd imagine doing that would be less annoying than the HDR not auto switching. I think you've got a project for the weekend pencilled in!!
Hi did you go from your sky q box straight into your one connect box and if so which hdmi port did you use on your one connect as I can't get it working on mine but I know hdr works as it comes on when watching on my amazon firestick?
Hi Notty Unfortunately I am connecting to an AVR (Denon) which then goes in to HDMI 4 ARC on the one connect box. Check your HDMI UHD colour setting in you TV picture expert settings, make sure this is set to on for the HDMI port you are using. Also are you sure your Sky Q box is compatible as not all are.
