You should get HDR from all services. Why bother with fake HDR?
Limitation of my 2016 LG UHDTV and/or it's HDMI ports. I can only get DD via CCGTV from HBOMax (not Netflix or Prime), presumably b/c it's std DD and not DD+. But HBOMax is still 1080P and no HDR.You should get HDR from all services. Why bother with fake HDR?
Our 5 y.o. "Smart TV" Panny was obsolete in "smartness" in 3 years. We got a Roku about that same time. Except for missing HBO MAX - has stayed current.This is Google's answer to FireStick and esp FireStick4K (which everyone has forgotten about as its 2yrs old now but remains the most capable) - streaming dongle that has a remote.
Most people want a cheap box to watch the multiple streaming services they pay for. In fact most people can do this via any tv in the last 5 years.
The goal is to sell people a new dongle every few years and market it by adding extra features.
Forced HDR always looks worse than just plain SDR on any device, even the much more expensive ATV 4k or Shield. I would not use any fake HDR ever. I don't know what's the relationship between no DD+ and HDR with your setup. As long as you can output 4K and allow HDR, you should get HDR from the services even if you don't get 5.1 audio.Limitation of my 2016 LG UHDTV and/or it's HDMI ports.

I do get DD from the same 3 internal apps. I get HDR from internal app for Prime and Disney+, but not Netflix.
I do get DD from all CCGTV apps if I plug it into soundbar directly, but my current soundbar doesn't pass 4K/HDR through. So I think my best option short of replacing TV is new soundbar w/4K passthrough but then either no HDR from Netflix or I let CCGTV upscale to HDR.
just got my email shipped today and will get it by 14th or 15th.When did you guys order the GTV, did anyone order from Google Store? I placed my order when it launched and it has yet to ship but it also doesnt show cancelled. I got the bundle with Netflix as it works out much cheaper.
But it’s not tho- when I Airplay it from my iPad to my Vizio its DD+, but when I cast it it’s DD standard, so the streams are definitely encoded in DD+. It was DD+ through the app and casted on the hbo apps up until approx a year ago. HBO just doesn’t seem to care enough to fix it.Yea HBO Max is still Dolby Digital.
