Dolby Vision on Netflix

Hello, apologies if a similar thread exists.

I've just got a 4K Tv and when i watch Netflix via the TV App i get the Dolby Vision logo next to some shows, but when i watch through the V6 I don't. Am I missing something? Or does the V6 not have Dolby Vision capability yet.

I am running my V6 though a Yamaha YSP2700 if that makes a difference but as far as I am aware that has HDR Passthrough.

Many Thanks

Hello

You are correct currently the V6 box doesn't support Dolby Vision, I found this article :- https://www.express.co.uk/life-style/science-technology/1186576/Virgin-Media-TV-V6-Upgrade

Re: Dolby Vision on Netflix

Ah Thank you very much!!

I can stop pulling my hair out now. Bit irritating to have to switch devices, but i guess that is the definition of a first world problem

Thanks again!

Re: Dolby Vision on Netflix

I won't read too much into the introduction of the TiVo Edge as it's for the north American market and has a 2TB hard drive - which isn't what VM needs for the cloud storage coming our way.

Re: Dolby Vision on Netflix

I’ve got HDR through the V6 now but I still can’t get HDR pass through via my sound bar. Sigh.

Re: Dolby Vision on Netflix

If you mean HDMI ARC you won't get HDR due to limited bandwidth.

Oh ok. Yamaha claim the ysp2700 allows hdr passthrough. But I can’t get it to work.

Re: Dolby Vision on Netflix

Oh, you mean that the Yamaha is between the V6 and the TV, so nothing to do with HDMI ARC. Can you confirm with Yamaha UK that the latest firmware supports DV passthrough?

Re: Dolby Vision on Netflix

We have no date for VM to provide the update which enables the V6 to support DV. In the meantime can you get Netflix HDR10 from the V6?
