Help with HDR
I am looking for some help.
I just bought an UN65NU8000 and an QN82Q8FN. Both are having the exact same problem(s) and right now my frustration level with Samsung is through the roof.
They cannot display HDR content unless I manually intervene.
On the UN65NU8000 I have a Pioneer Elite VSX-LX301 receiver
and the QN82Q8FN has an Onkyo TX-RZ720 receiver
They each have a Sony UBX-P700 UHD Player, Roku Ultra and DirecTV HR24-500 DVR . When I change the A/V receiver to one of those UHD devices, HDR does not show. Only UHD. IF, I turn the TV off and then back on, I can get HDR. Just the turning the TV off/on, nothing else.
In addition, if I have HDMI UHD Color turned ON, I get no sound from my DirecTV receiver. I was able to get around this on the Pioneer receiver as it has some HDMI inputs which are not HDCP2.2. If I plug my DirecTV receiver into one of those NON-HDCP2.2 inputs, I can get sound with HDMI UHD Color turned on. My Onkyo receiver has HDCP2.2 on all of its inputs, so if I want sound I must turn off HDMI UHD Color. Gggrrrrr!!!! What is this setting anyways?
Also, at some point both of those A/V receivers (Pioneer Elite and Onkyo) were connected to a 2 year old LG 75UH8500. I had exactly zero issues with that set and HDR. It just worked.
Is anyone else having issues? Is there a fix? I can't imagine I am alone as this is happening on both of my new Samsung sets.
