Using HDR plus on direct tv looks great one some channels, seeing that banding issue another mentioned on some programming, but on the movie channels the up conversion works really well. I honestly don't see much Flash lighting and for the most part my t.v. gets very dark. I notice some picture fade on the right half of the screen near the edge extending upwards about half of the screen while watching non hd shows on direct tv when there's black bars. One thing for the life of me I can't seem to figure out is sports the motion is pretty bad and I have amp off. I'm noticing almost like a micro stutter and then the weird glitchy movements when people run or move their arms like it's 56k internet so I'll need help figuring out some blur judder settings that have minimal soap opera effect. ultimately I'm mixed on the t.v. but given that I paid around 1600 or so for it I know I couldn't have gotten a better set for that price and I'm a Samsung lover admittedly. Hopefully with you guys help I can get these things lockedin
You say HDR looked beautiful, but Direct TV is all over the place. I would say your problem may lie with Direct TV. Do you have banding or these other problems described on your HDR source? If not, sounds like Direct TV may be your problem? Do you have a UHD Bluray player to test HDR? Is your HDR source the TV apps? I have minimal motion problems. Never from TV apps, Oppo 203, Dune HD, or Nvidia Shield. The only motion problem I have experienced is on ABC programing - not on the other networks. It seldom happens. I have Fios for cable. You may need a new satellite box from Direct TV. If all your sources have this problem, unfortunately, you may have a bad TV. You should make sure your TV is working properly in SDR mode, be it Movie, Standard or CalNight. HDR Plus may hide defects in the TV or accentuate them. Myself, I don't care for HDR Plus. Good luck.
