    ...even though HDR is only supposed to be for programs specifically encoded with HDR.

    This thing puts out HDR on EVERYTHING. Even on the Tivo home menu and Android TV home screen. Even on SD content from my Plex server (which obviously looks like crap).

    I don't see a setting to fix this. Am I just missing it? Thanks.

    There's a lot of stuff on here that they seemingly left out. You're not crazy...it's even already in the code, you just can't get to it by normal means.

    The option to disable Dolby Vision is there in the code. It works. Same with HDR crap...

    I'd like to add that on a non-Dolby Vision TV turning Dolby Vision "off" actually makes the picture better. I wonder if it's forced this way because they don't have proper detection code or something here, because it should NOT do that.

    No way to turn off always-on HDR? Or to make it automatic like it should be? Major deal breaker!

    Depends if you want to wait to see if it gets fixed. It took Apple a few months to fix it

    Somebody on the Tivo Owners Facebook group tells me the Edge DVR has the same problem, and to this date has not been fixed. If that's true, not a good sign for it getting fixed here.

    If a TV doesn't support HDR like mine then is the TiVo stream still in HDR mode?

    Mission...
    Would like to know the answer to that as well since none of my TVs support HDR.

    Just looked at the Tivo Edge Forum here, Edge definitely has the same problem and has not been fixed, even though it was first brought up last OCTOBER.
