Amazon Prime Dolby Vision


Standard Member
I have a Sony KD55XH81 tv that supports Dolby Vision. I have noticed that when playing content that is supposed to have DV from Amazon Prime (e.g, Jack Ryan), when using the TV Amazon App this is not transmitted in Dolby Vision (I do get Atmos), yet if I stream the same program via a Fire Cube 4K box connected directly into a JBL Bar 1 soundbar then to the TV via ARC, the TV does show Dolby Vision.

Any idea why I would be getting the difference between the TV app and the Fire Cube?

Normally, the content provider (i.e. Amazon) will need to whitelist the respective content types per device ID / device range. At first glance, I would suspect that this is not (yet?) the case for this model / platform, while it is the case for the FireTV device.
