Same here. HDR10 engaged on my display, but no Atmos. My AVR stays at 2.0.Has anyone noticed that vudu now supports 4k and hdr on the chromecast but the sound coming out is only 2 channel pcm? It doesn't matter if it's in hd or 4k, so no atmos or 5.1.
the first post in the thread does quote a post from someone who sounds like they know what they're doing, that says hdr10 has incorrect black levels. that's why I've been super hesitant to buy one, and now you have the same TV series I do and are seeing just that. I have no clue what to get though :-/I’m aware the Tv input needs to be set to UHD. I’ve done this already on all ports. The output for this device is dull, no matter what I try. i was hoping there would be at least another person on here seeing the same thing as me. Nothing wrong with the Google tv either, so I don’t know what it is. Might return it then.
That is what both of my CCGTVs send at 2160P60. 12 bit at 422.I had to return my CCGTV. There is no color space control setting.. so setting device to 4K60 only sent 8 bit color. Even with HDR content. My signal chain supports hdmi 2.0b and HDCP 2.2. The CGTV should be smart enough to send YUV 4:2:2 12-bit at 4K60.
Yeah, so I did return one of my CCGTV because at the time it was not registering anything more than 8 bit. So then, in the Nvidia shield thread that I think you we're are a part of, I learned something valuable. And then that is the Chromecast with Google TV may have been sending 12-bit and it's just that my Onkyo and JVC projector were still indicating 8 bit.That is what both of mine send at 2160P60. 12 bit at 422.

My TV is a Samsung JS9500; one year earlier than yours. No washed out HDR here. I've used ATV4K, CCGTV and Roku Ultra 4660 and they all look the same to me for HDR10.We have a Samsung KS8000 and match content turned on, but the HDR output just looks terribly washed out. Is there anyone out there who has the same issue or had the same issue and found a way to fix it? Match content doesn’t fix it...
I don't know if was necessary but I did create another Apple ID. I only had it locked once and Apple support wasn't much help understanding why ATV4K wasn't very user friendly, always asking for my pin to update it download free apps when the setting isn't enabled. I factory reset the ATV4Ks I own and used the new Apple ID and setup family share and it's been much better. In fact, I didn't know this earlier but not having an iOS device, I can set 2 factor authentication using an Android device. But out of abundance of caution, I don't want iOS devices syncing with my ATV4Ks anymore. The ATV4K has some dislikes with framerate users that have noted it cannot properly framerate match integer framerate 24.000 content but uses 23.97 refresh and drops frames. Not everyone can spot this; I've struggled to see it but rarely do.I'm suuuuuper glad you posted since I'm being driven nuts trying to figure out what to buy, you have the same TV series I do (and HDR10 looks fantastic on the few games that support it well on my PS4 Pro also), and early in this thread someone said that the black levels were washed out with the Chromecast with Google TV on HDR10.
maybe it is a settings issue, but I'm not sure what, and if you can't get it figured out then I'm going to avoid this. (getting my PS4 Pro to support hdr10 correctly wasn't very hard, and you already said you had that working fine previously, so presumably could get this working too).
I'm not sure what to buy though...the Fire TV Cube 2019 thread says that it only outputs 8-bit instead of 10 bit color, so if that's true that's out. Not sure about the Fire TV stick 4K. maybe the Roku Ultra.... I might try the Apple TV 4K, except my Apple account keeps getting locked multiple times a week so I'm kind of iffy on buying any more Apple Hardware. Why the frak is this all so complicated?!?
Many devices erroneously report 8 bit with 422. But with HDMi 2.0 and 2160P, 12 bit is all the HDMI spec allows at 422. Every device that follows the HDMi spec has to send 12 bit at 422.@aaronwt I have my CCWGTV connected to my Oppo 203 and when I request information about the content I'm streaming, it's all 8-bit.
As a result you may see some Banding on some content. The device will not go beyond 8-bit, but HDR is still engaged on some content.
Someone gave a good explanation about this on the Kodi forums.

You wouldn't I happen to know if there are any other devices that fail that test, would you? Like the Fire TV Cube 2019 thread acts like it only sends 8-bit color with HDR10? (hopefully nothing else has that issue)Many devices erroneously report 8 bit with 422. But with HDMi 2.0 and 2160P, 12 bit is all the HDMI spec allows at 422. Every device that follows the HDMi spec has to send 12 bit at 422.
And a good way to test is with a quantization test pattern. Find one that shows 8 bit and 10 bit. Any device that is sending 8 bit will have banding in the pattern. But if its sending 10 bit or 12 bit, the pattern is nice and smooth. And my CCGTVs pass this test which means it is not sending 8 bit at 2160P with 422.

It's only 5.1 DD with the built-in app. But if you cast to it, you get Atmos.When it debuts on HBO Max on Christmas Day, Wonder Woman 1984 will lack support for Dolby Atmos specifically on Chromecast with Google TV.9to5google.com
my Roku stick+ has Atmos. Not sure how accurate that article is.When it debuts on HBO Max on Christmas Day, Wonder Woman 1984 will lack support for Dolby Atmos specifically on Chromecast with Google TV.9to5google.com
I had no issues when I checked my Fire Tv 4K sticks in the past. They passed the 10 bit test. But I have not checked them recently. I don't own a FireTV Cube though.You wouldn't I happen to know if there are any other devices that fail that test, would you?
