Re: BBC iPlayer - HDR/HLG material

So I have a V6 box dcx960 with a Sony 4K projector, but I can’t seem to get my iPlayer to play uhd material. I assume it shows in the app if the show is available in uhd?

Re: BBC iPlayer - HDR/HLG material

Is your projector capable?

What’s its model number?

Hi clegsr,

Compatible TV's for IPlayer 4K are listed here  uhd-connected-tv   (the list doesn't contain projectors)

Have you gone into the IPlayer settings and switched to IPlayer Beta which shows the UHD content? You can play a UHD test loop from there.

Searching UHD at present shows His Dark Materials, Dracula and Dynasties which are labelled UHD. It also brings up Seven Worlds, One Planet and Blue Planet 11 which although not labelled as UHD do play in UHD.

Doctor Who on New Years day will be in 4K HDR on the IPlayer. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/ 

The BBC have just provided the following shows in 4K HDR over Christmas on the IPlayer

  • the Queen's Christmas Broadcast
  • the drama series Black Narcissus
  • the natural history documentaries Meerkat: A Dynasties Special, and A Perfect Planet
