BTW, all my viewing is in a dark room (with controlled lighting).
I agree. When I first saw UHD HDR I watched it in a normally lighted room and was underwhelmed. Over time, though, I have learned what to look for and really love it now. Over the weekend I saw Sully in the theater and really appreciated the combination of inky blacks and brightness that film provides. Since then, I have been watching a bunch of stuff in UHD HDR on Amazon, primarily Season 2 of Bosch and Season 1 of The Man in the High Castle. My overall impression was one of gratitude for how film like good UHD HDR is. I couldn't have asked more from my 940D in this regard.

I also agree that the best way to get the most out of UHD HDR is to watch it in movie theater-like darkness.

Hello, I'm trying to find Austin Jerry's custom settings to dial in my 940D. I've gone through this thread and can't seem to find them. Are the still on here?

Thanks again for all of the great advice (everybody), Mike

For the DirecTV users, which rear input are you using for video?

Glad you got it. The movie choices are pretty limited but free is free. I did verify that HDR mode is being switched to by the ULTRA app so all is good.

He USED TO have them in his Signature, but I see they've been removed. Jerry has been AWOL for the last couple of days...perhaps when he returns he'll tell us why he removed them.

I was somewhat disappointed initially too, but never to the degree where it looked "dim" or "washed-out" as was mentioned by that one member.

I've seen the trailer several times for Sully and I can't wait for it to come out on either UHD or 1080P (hopefully UHD/HDR). The black levels in the trailer look spectacular along with fantastic details, depth and clarity.

My TV (ISF calibration by Chad) didn't switch so I did it manually.
All 4 of the HDMI inputs of Chads calibrations are saved, I assume the other ways need to be customized as well.
We used antenna input for local coverage, Hurricane Mathew, and the picture was too bright and over saturated.
I was lucky , no damage, and my old in attic antenna did its job.

Yes, I do.

Looking forward to GoW4 when I get home from work tonight. I am curious though on if I'll see the benefits of HDR in the Gaming mode since that is required to keep the input lag at a minimum.

You don't need to switch the TV to HDR manually with the ULTRA app. It doesn't look like it's doing it automatically if you use the Action Menu to check the mode during playback. This is because the video actually stops when you open the Action Menu (unlike Netflix or Amazon that just pause the video) and the TV switches back to whatever mode you normally have set since the HDR signal is gone. As soon as you start the video again the TV WILL switch to HDR mode, but you'll never be able to verify it by looking at the menus.

I found this on the Sony forum and it was applicable back when the Amazon app stopped video instead of pausing. Since the ULTRA app works this way it was an easy way to verify that HDR was indeed auto enabling. Just follow the instructions below using the ULTRA app instead of Amazon:

When playing HDR content in the Amazon app, if I open the Action menu and look at Picture mode, HDR picture mode isn't selected. Does that mean HDR mode is not engaging automatically?

Short answer: No. When you select the Action menu when playing HDR content in the Amazon Instant Video app, the HDR video stops playing. As soon as that happens the TV changes the Picture Mode back to your standard picture mode. So by the time you select Picture Adjustments on the Action menu to display the Picture mode menu, HDR mode has been replaced by your normail picture mode as the current selection. (For your Physics geeks this is kind of like Heisenberg's uncertainty principle - the act of looking at something changes it.) HDR mode is automatically engaged when the Amazon HDR content is playing in the Amazon app, you just can't see the HDR picture mode selected in the Picture mode menu, since the HDR video stops when you go to the menu. AVS forum members have tested and confirmed this multiple times with a delightfully simple test that member 400Mhz Man provided:

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.

To further convince yourself you can set Color to "Min" for your normail Picture mode for Apps (Video) (e.g., Cinema Pro) and then play HDR content in Amazon and you will see that the TV is using the HDR settings and you have normal HDR color.

^^^ Sluffo- Thanks a million for your tutorial on how to confirm that a film really is being streamed in 4K HDR on Ultra. I needed the help. Although I have had my 940D since August 1, I had not got around to exploring its built in Ultra app until last night. I discovered to my delight that Ultra allows me to link to my rather large Ultraviolet library and watch films I have there on the Ultra app at no additional charge. Further, I can upgrade a number of the BD films in my UV library to UHD in my Ultra library for a small charge.

Can you or anybody tell me how I can identify which of the 4K films collected on the Ultra site also have HDR? Is there a list of the Ultra films that have HDR anywhere? My research of the issue provided no answers.

HT setup: Sony 75XBR X940D UHD HDR TV; Kaleidescape Strato Movie Server 6 TB and Terra Server 24 TB; Yamaha RX-A3060 AV receiver; Sonamp 2-1 2channel 100W power amp; Crestron Control System; 2 Rythmik FV18 subwoofers, 6 Hsu HB-1 Bookshelf speakers, 1 Hsu HC-1 Center speaker, 4 Focal ICW8 in-ceiling Atmos speakers; Oppo UDP-203 4K HDR BD player.

Question. Has Sony fixed HDR gaming on the ps4 and xbox one on the 940D? Is there still a large increase in input lag when playing HDR games?

I spent more time exploring the Ultra site this morning and concluded with reasonable certainty that a bunch of the UHD films there do not have HDR but had read somewhere that the 4k Ghostbusters did have HDR. Sure enough, when I checked the Ghostbusters description page, I saw that it explicitly said, "HDR." I didn't find any other 4K title information page that said "HDR" but confess I didn't check the information page for every film on the site.

The main down side of Ultra to me, though, is that the films there not only do not have lossless audio, the limitations of Sony's ARC implementation of the 940D means that they don't even have Dolby Digital audio. Too bad, but there it is.

I chose to use an optical audio cable out to my Denon receiver because I experienced some problems when I set up ARC and then tried to play some programming recorded on my Dish DVR the next morning. It essentially said something in the chain was not HDCP-compliant. I undid the ARC settings, and everything worked fine. I concluded that in my set-up, I would either have to do that every time in the same situation, or I could run an optical out.

I haven't tried to play any of the 4 titles I got, but I'll report what happens with the audio when I do.

I can confirm The Shallows and Fury have HDR on Ultra.

I have a Yamaha RX-A3060 HT receiver and love it. It has a new DSP, called "Enhanced" that matrixes any signal it receives to 7.1.4. Obviously, that's not nearly as good as having lossless audio, nor quite as good as Dolby Digital, but it's quite good nonetheless.

The limitations of audio via streaming is the main reason I bought a Kaleidescape Strato. I buy and download film files from the Kscape store in either BD or UHD quality with lossless audio, including on some titles TrueHD Atmos or Dolby DTS:X. Not cheap but it works very well and is a lot more convenient that physical discs. That said, every title is not available from the Kscape store, so I know I will have to buy a UHD HDR player. I plan to get an Oppo UDP-203 when it is released later this year.

Finally have my system complete hook up. But I seems to have trouble streaming 4k. Because, with the roku 4 connected, everything from Amazon prime 4k to Youtube 4k demo, the tv only show 1080p, when "display" is press. When Sony ultra tv is played from the tv app., no resolution is show, when "display" is selected. I do not have a uhd player yet, still waiting for the availability of the oppo 203.
Can down load speed affect the 4k streaming. If so, what is the require average speed. My present speed is about 21 mbps ( down ), 2 mbps ( up ).

In the mean time, what would be the best way to see 4k demo.

Thanks, wil1688

I'm really waiting for Battlefield One to test this. I played Gears of War 4 last night and it looks phenomenal. Bright lights in dark scenes, I'm impressed.

My issue is that when the TV detects an HDR signal you can't change off of that mode. I went into the HDR settings and turned off all the motion flow settings. It seems ok for lag but gears isn't exactly a twitch type of game.

Your post on the Kaleidescape just reminded me of what I read yesterday in my current issue of Sound & Vision. It was an "Editor's Note" on page 14 and reads as follows:

"Our October issue featured a review by John Sciacca of Kaleidescape's new 4K-compatible movie player, the Strato, including a discussion of the Kaleidescapte online movie store from which it downloads its content. As we went to press for the November issue in late August, Kaleidescape, a company that was founded in 2001 and essentially invented the video movie server, was laying off its employees and shutting its door after running out of cast. By the time you read this, the company may or may not have secured a bailout or a new owner, but as of our deadline, the Strato was no longer available for sale, and the firm's ultimate fate was unknown. Readers should be aware" (End of Quote).

So, did the company secure a bailout or a new owner?

LG OLED 77C8...Denon X4300H 9.2 AVR...LG UHD UBK90 (Dolby Vision BDP)...Philips UHD BDP-7501...Toshiba HD-A30...Dish Hopper 3...Roku Premiere Plus...Harmony One

5.2.4 Set-up: SVS Prime Bookshelf Speakers (4)...SVS Prime Center...SVS Prime Elevation (4)...SVS PC-2000 & PC12-NSD Subs

I just checked on whether Fury is available in 4K HDR on Ultra and concluded that it does not have HDR. First, the info page for Fury does not list HDR, nor does the information displayed by pressing the down arrow while the film is running. In both cases it just says "4K." Second, I compared the Ultra version with the version on my Strato, which I know to be 4K only, and saw no difference whatever between it and the version available on the Ultra site.

Did you notice that while you can turn motion flow in HDR gaming off, cinemotion can't be changed from high? I can change it fine watching hdr movies or streaming so that's weird
