The Sony UBP-X700 manually toggles Dolby Vision On/Off. With DV on, it forces the output of disks and USB media files in Dolby Vision regardless of whether they were HDR 10 or even SDR. I think it applies to streaming apps too, but as I never used it for streaming when I had it, I cannot confirm that.
I personally didn't like how it looked, some said they saw no difference, others said they liked it. It's subjective I guess. I no longer have it as I swapped to the auto detecting Panasonic UB820.
ATV4K can force a DV output if you Enable Dolby Vision and Disable Range Matching. Non DV content looks absolutely terrible to me when doing this though.
HD Fury devices have a way of injecting DV metadata for calibration purposes. It is finicky, but it works for its use case. I have no idea if it would work for normal content, in fact I highly doubt it will. But if you have a HD Fury device it might be something worth experimenting with, if only to see if it's possible.
