The ub820 can be forced to output DV with a DV title when spoofed with a Sony or LG EDID, but not with SDR or HDR content, only DV content.
It is worth noting, if you're XBOX is one of the newer S/X models, it can be forced to output DV. I believe one of the EDIDs is the LG C8. You're XBOX might be doing what it has been designed to do with the C8 DV content, but is also mistakenly doing it with SDR content, which would look affected. This should not happen with the ub820 based on my testing.
I took delivery of a UB820 and tested this, and so far its behavior is mirroring the Xbox, which is what I was concerned about. I've perused the settings and tried turning off everything that seemed like it could affect it, but so far, no luck.
Here is what I'm seeing with Netflix specifically...
With Dolby Vision turned ON in the UB820 settings:
ALL of Netflix forces my LG C8 into its DV preset. Obviously for DV content, this is fabulous, but for SDR content, this is not at all desirable.
With Dolby Vision turned OFF in the UB820 settings:
Netflix displays SDR content properly, however, DV content reverts to being displayed in HDR.
How can I resolve this so that I don't need to toggle DV on / off each time I'm changing content?
