Both TV and Roku also play Amazon's HDR10 titles.
I can unequivocally say that Netflix DV titles looks leaps better than HDR10.
You are in the unique position to be able to watch both the DV and HDR10 version of the same show/movie. I wish I could do the same!
Can you please explain what exactly it is about the DV picture that makes it unequivocally superior to the HDR10 picture from the Roku premier plus? Please try to be very specific.
Also are you aware of the recent firmware updates for the Roku that allows you to change from 4:2:2 to 4:2:0 via a secret menu (many people were experiencing banding issues using 4:2:2 that apparently is fixed by changing to 4:2:0)?
