I've just purchased a HDD so I can watch movies on my LG CX but I've encountered an issue where a DV file is playing in SDR and I'm not sure what the fix is. I would've thought the file would play in HDR if there was an issue with the dolby vision. Does anyone know how I can sort this out?

very few devices support DV profile 7 in an mkv container.

the native media player is probably unlikely to support HDR playback in mkv, more likely in mp4 container.

if you want DV in mkv you’ll need to use plex on a shield (or similar)

I use an Nvidia Shield Pro (2019) with my LG CX and I found through the latest Kodi DV mkv container videos wouldn't play correctly but mp4 ones were fine, I later found that using "Justplayer" app played DV mkv's fine, hope this helps. By the way check out Black Widow in DV if you can lovely picture.
