Once you see the difference, you will be able to see it in other sources, such as Netflix.
Hopefully it is just a bug in DV LL.
If you are happy with what you are watching today, then I would advice against looking at the HDR montage. You have been warned!
Here is the montage menu with all of the flavors of the HDR montage:
I appreciate your post. If I could indulge you for a minute, would you please advise if my assimilation of this information is correct? I want to add it to my notes.
The base layer contains only the HDR10 video signal information at 10-bit YcBcR 4:2:0 and 1000 Nits maximum luminance. The enhancement layer carries the Dolby Vision information to allow source devices or displays to reconstruct the signal. In this linked post
, Stacey Spears (sspears on AVS Forum) described Dolby Vision’s various enhancement layer versions.
Minimal Enhancement Layer (MEL)
The MEL contains only the basic Dolby Vision metadata, and when combined with the base layer, provides a 10-bit YcBcR 4:2:0 (1000 Nit maximum luminance) video signal. The MEL was first to debut in the initial SDK.
Full Enhancement Layer (FEL)
FEL contains both the basic Dolby Vision metadata, as well as extra information, and when combined with the base layer provides a 12-bit RGB (4000 Nit maximum luminance) video signal. FEL was not supported in the initial SDK but is now supported.
Most Dolby Vision content today uses MEL, not FEL, even though the SDK now supports both MEL and FEL. Perhaps this is a result of the initial SDK only supporting MEL.
