And as for the red comment, If my screen is indeed switching to HDR mode properly, then I agree, I tried watching The Amazing Spiderman 2 and felt like all the colors were way oversaturated and red was being pushed like crazy. But again I have no way of knowing if it was in HDR, the only sign is that if i press the menu buttont he screen goes blank and then the menu pops up, basically seems like the TV automatically jumps out of HDR mode whenever the menu is brought up.
1 - Launch the Amazon app
2 - using the ACTION MENU on the remote select "Picture adjustments" after the "Picture adjustments" menu opens you should see at the top, below "Picture adjustments" the term "Apps (video), this means this setting will be applied to streaming content.
3 - set the "Picture mode" to "Vivid" (this is just to provide the greatest contrast between Vivid and HDR modes)
4 - change the color setting to "Min" this will make it so non-HDR content will use the ""Vivid" picture mode and the content will be black and white.
5 - Play several non-HDR videos and you should see that they will all play in Black and White.
6 - Play the HDR version of "Red Oaks" and "Mozart In The Jungle" please note that it is not Black and White, it will use the HDR picture mode settings.
Or just change the HDR setting to have Color Min and if it is using HDR the TV will be using HDR mode and the video will be in Black and White.
