Oh actually it's only Sky that's non hdr so I definitely can't watch it on the V6. I still don't understand why the bbc claims its hdr streams contain an sdr 4k stream when it only ever plays hdr.

The UHD broadcasts do ordinarily include SDR as well as HDR. The same video including the HLG HDR can be viewed on a non HLG compliant display using SDR.


I know that's the theory. In reality these streams are only offered to bt 2020 tv's. Rec 709 4k tv's are more than capable of playing these streams but the BBC just won't allow it.

This link is also quite interesting as it discusses the darkness which many of us found, when watching the UHD stream:

I like the test card idea, that will be great for properly setting up 4K.
