My C6 just notified me that it's installing a new firmware. Looks like I went from 5.30.85 to 5.30.95
B6 owner. Same here. No HDR on Amazon Prime using the LG App. Just noticed this yesterday, but was watching The Tick in HDR last week. I deleted the app and reinstalled, no change. Anyone else having this issue.B6 owner... I have noticed for a couple of weeks now that the Amazon App no longer plays HDR content, even though the title specifically states HDR. The video looks to be 4K, but definitly not HDR (easily confirmed checking Picture Mode). I went ahead and upgraded to 5.31 to see if that would help, but no. I also noticed the Amazon App no longer displays the video quality (i.e. SD/HD/UHD). We had been watching HDR content without any issues in the past... if Amazon is no longer supporting HDR content for the B6's, that's a bummer.
BTW... where is the thread search function?
HDR gone here also with 55B6. Can we complain to Amazon Prime? It is on their side surely, because Netflix, and I believe, Vudu, are unaffected. Also very annoying that Amazon is now running commercials on old TV series; to avoid, one must pay $1.99 per episode for material that was included free with a Prime account. Ah, greed. Or maybe a pandemic byproduct?Same here. 65B6. Fleabag. No hdr.
65c6 same no hdr. Ironically the whole reason I was using the internal app for Amazon was because HDR was broken on the Apple TV 4K. Now I go back to the Apple TV 4K, in the Amazon app is processing HDR properly. That points that there is probably some setting in the new app update that is borkedSame here. 65B6. Fleabag. No hdr.
Fire TV 4K Stick is on sale now. It has the feature to use framerate of the original content that works with Prime. Still has HDR with Amazon content.Wow no HDR on my C6 Amazon app either. That's BS. I used the internal app because it was good for 24fps content playing back correctly. Chromecast does the ugly 60hz conversion. I do believe however that my Sony x700 player's Amazon app does do 24fps though so I might use that until this is hopefully fixed.
If Roku would support Google play movies in 4K and HDR (or at least through YouTube in 4K HDR*) then I might consider switching from my Chromecast to that, because I do like the frame rate matching option. But last I checked, it does not.Fire TV 4K Stick is on sale now. It has the feature to use framerate of the original content that works with Prime. Still has HDR with Amazon content.
The Roku Premiere Amazon Prime Video app is also working with HDR, as tested 2 days ago. The Roku also has a setting to display original content framerate if supported by the app. Not sure if it works with Prime Video though. The Fire TV actually flashes "adjusting video framerate" when Amazon content starts playing.
Not familiar with Google Play, but I believe you can sideload it on a Fire TV device from a source like apkmirror. You can also sideload other Android TV apps like HBO Max and Peacock. I haven't tried it myself, but have heard others with success.If Roku would support Google play movies in 4K and HDR (or at least through YouTube in 4K HDR*) then I might consider switching from my Chromecast to that, because I do like the frame rate matching option.

*Note that even if the YouTube app supports HDR for regular videos, purchases may still play without HDR or even in lower resolution, based on my experience with other devices.
By the way, if you want to check if something is outputting 24hz, use the arrow keys to go to the channel tuning menu option and press 11111 and it shows the refresh rate.

Yeah go into the TV options menu (the gear icon on the remote, hold it down or click once and press all settings in the corner) then there will be a channels menu with Channel Tuning as an optionAbout that refresh rate check, I do this with the LG TV remote? Not sure where this channel tuning menu is. I have CEC turned on, so those arrows bring up the Fire TV's menus.
