      Oh dear, where have I seen this before.
      A combination of a manufacturer and a studio pushing a format.
      Ah yes, HD-DVD.
      Same studio, different manufacturer. And we know how that turned out.

      However as long as things don't get silly again with movies just appearing in one format or the other, no biggie. Especially if it results in more HDR10, HDR10+ and DV combos.
      One disc to rule them all...;)

      You likely won't ever see a blu ray/4k blu ray disc with both Dolby Vision and HDR10+ on the same disc as it. The studio's aren't going to pay Dolby Vision licence for each disc then also put the rival HDR10+ format on it, and Dolby themselves wouldn't want it.

      The studio's will just go for either HDR10, HDR10+ (with the base HDR10 layer incoded for non HDR10+ tv's) or Dolby Vision (with the HDR10 base layer incoded for non Dolby Vision tv's) on discs.

      This may be a pointer that the only titles to have both formats are going to be ones you wouldn't want to watch. Saves reading the reviews :smashin:
      Got both DV and HDR10+ = one to pass on...;)

      Actually the film is meant to look very good PQ wise, just that it's a terrible movie...

      Man on a Ledge has both DV and HDR10+ metadata layers on top of base layer.

      Spec and adoption wise, DV is way ahead but norrmal.viewers should be happy wirh HDR10 as the differences are going to be subtle and mostly less noticeable.

      Anybody actually tried these? Has anybody actually got the discs and can verify that these titles play in both Dolby Vision and HDR10+. Lots of pointing to reviews (some of which don't even have the equipment to play DV) and photos of slip covers but no actual users. If so, which one is best?

      If your player and TV supports both which one will it play? OK, don't think it's possible yet but it will be very soon on the Panasonic OLEDs and high end Panasonic players 820/9000.
      Of course it your display only supports one but the player supports both I'd hope it picks the correct one and doesn't get confused and default to boring old HDR10 !!

      OK i was wrong :facepalm: still i doubt there will be many future discs with both Dolby Vision and HDR10+ the same as Robin Hood apart from maybe a few Lionsgate titles and a few other titles here and there. Most major film Studio's are using either default HDR10 or Dolby Vision for discs with only a few like Lionsgate and now Universal onboard with HDR10+ for discs.

      More than a couple of films don't mean its competition time.
