The reason I did that was the Harmony software had somehow lost the command in my main TV activity but not another. So I wanted to back it up and relearn it into the Harmony database before it totally got lost.
I have no idea how to share it. But it is somewhere in the Harmony database.

Edit:
Also I see when I watch an HDR video my menus glow a golden color, so I can see that it’s doing HDR.
Can you post a pic of the menu?

This is on my DirecTV. It’s hard to see but the text on the HDR screen is not white it has a mellow golden hue, channel 104. On the CNN screen it’s white, channel 202.

This came up before, about how do you know where we have HDR playing. I have the old firmware (1325) so it does not show me on my info when I'm playing at movie off my USB drive.

But "HDR " appears on the picture mode bubble. See attached.

Can Q80R output to optical out AND HDMI (Arc) simultaneously ? I would like to get a soundbar for just watching TV shows and already have my Sound system (Denon) for movies and such. I don't want to have to go into setup and switch each time i want to use it. Just power on Denon and go. Also just have soundbar to come on with TV. Did not find this specific issue anywhere on site. Thanks in advance.

I was looking at the Calibration white balance and color space settings on RTINGS does anyone know if the settings are for SDR content only or can they be used for HDR as well?


Thanks in advance.

It's been there for at least the past 2 versions. I bought mine in November last year and it was there. There has been at least one firmware update since then.

Thanks in advance.
You shouldn't use someone else's white balance settings, those will be different per panel. Not even sure why theh post them.

New Q80R owner here! My beloved ks8000 has some purple patches on the screen. My SquareTrade warranty came in handy - took some negotiating and 3 replacement offers but finally agreed on the Q80. Definitely miss the one connect box - spoiled. KS was thinner then Q80 - most likely due to full array. Well I’m still playing around with the settings, only had the set for couple of days. Looking forward to any tips on this forum. Will start to page through. Definitely want the best picture I can get - starting with rtings settings. Anyone try darko settings? I know you have to pay but is it that much better?
