HDR BRIGHT Flicker issue - weird finding today
I have been in touch with both Roku and Amazon for a couple weeks trying to resolve the HDR Bright flicker problem. For me, this problem has always only happened in the Amazon Prime app. VUDU, Netflix, etc...work without issue on this setting (I have the 65r625). A few week ago, 4K UHD shows on Prime completely stopped streaming in UHD. Even though I would choose, say the show, Hanna's UHD seasons, the TCL would default to non-UHD streams. This has been happening for every single show/movie on Prime that has 4K and Atmos content.
Oddly, today I tried Jack Ryan Season 1 just to see if the UHD was working again and BOOM! IT WAS! Not only was it working, but the HDR Bright setting has absolutely no flicker issue!! Same with season 2. Now for the weird part. Jack Ryan seasons 1 and 2 are the only show that is working like this. Hanna, Bosch, Hunters, My Spy, 7500, The Boys - you name it - all are resorting back to the SDR settings.
What all of this means, I have no clue. I've always thought the HDR BRIGHT flicker issue needed a Roku Update to resolve it, but now with this finding, I wonder if it is an Amazon Prime App issue? No idea, just wanted to share my findings.
I have read every page of this thread btw, and I am happy to have found it!
