    HDR works with me on my one cable channel that offers it. Netflix and a YouTube Dolby vision isn’t supported on the Mini Vox. Just HDR10 and HLG

    don’t use Vudu to be able to test

    So that means that content with HDR will also have issues with brightness (ie the TV needs to be calibrated)?

    No The content itself would be mapped correctly to display correctly on your TV.. The issue can be menus and text that can appear overblown from a GUI

    TiVo_Ted... Thank you for your excellent explanation of what is happening with HDR on the TiVo Edge. My question is, is "fake" HDR still better than no HDR? In other words, if I only use my TiVo for broadcast television (no apps), might I be better off turning the HDR setting off? Also, if an app (like Netflix), does broadcast true HDR, will the TiVo send "true" HDR or "fake" HDR to the television? And, does the Edge support HLG? If not, what happens when broadcast TV starts to use HLG? Will the TiVo continue to put out "fake" HDR? Finally, you mentioned recommending the the Edge be modifed to act more like the Bolt in terms of HDR. Could this be accomplished through a firmware update, or would one need to purchase a newer Edge? Thank you!!

    The Edge and Bolt both support HDR

    Does the Edge also do Low Latency Dolby Vision (LLDV, Profile 5) for the Sony OLEDs, like the AppleTV can?

    Not currently, needs an SW update to support. Ted mentioned it in another thread.

    Thanks Joe! I threw the proverbial rock at that pigeon to get him to move by tagging him!

    Let’s hope it works.

    Thanks Jeff! Do you have a link by chance?

    Edit: Never mind. I found it.

    Hi Ted,

    Do you have an update on this and whether or not the engineers are planning an update around this? I have a professionally calibrated TV and the colors are off when the TV thinks it is playing HDR content when I am just playing basic cable HD content.

    Can you confirm that a fix is still on the radar? I am debating on whether to return the Edge based on the Sony DV issue and this auto-HDR issue but would be comforted to know that this is being addressed.

    Thanks,

    Ditto. I picked up an Edge for cable about a week ago and it’s not worth the extra monthly costs for cable and tivo if this isn’t resolved. If not I’ll be doing a return within the 30 days myself.

    Note that @TiVo_Ted has been away from posting in these parts for 2+ months, now (although, while not posting, he will check in at the forum).

    Maybe call or do chat with Tivo support and ask them what the status is of issue BZK-745 [Edge] Dolby Vision not working on Sony TVs.
