Good question, will it be 1080p HDR or 4k HDR, Sky hasn't really been forthcoming on what type.My box is no different ? I'm running a manual update and its taking forever ?
Also is Disney + gonna be in 4k too
I guess the HDR for Disney +update is gonna be HLG so my box is not compatable ?
Yes correct, there just seems to be some suggestion that because sky are using HLG for their own on demand material and live broadcasts that it will be HLG for everything. I was just pointing out that a competitors box handles both, my enigma 2 sat receiver from 2016 can also handle both, so I cannot see why the newer Q boxes cannot as they have all the required prerequisite‘s such as appropriate hdmi port, codec support and bit depth outputV6 is Virgin Media.
Doesn't Settings/Audio visual/Preferences/“On demand default download format” UHD take care of that?I personally set recordings for programs in case there are any issues and then download the UltraHD versions to actually watch. I also sometimes set a first program to record so as not to forget about it then will download the rest straight away. The Mrs recorded the first couple of episodes of Mrs America last night and i've come to download the rest of the series for her just now and there's no way to select what quality it downloads programs as..... It is just downloading the rest of the series in SD. (Confirmed by the time taken to download an episode plus the size of each episode). Where as the old menu had the option to select from all versions
I'm not sure of the detail, but I think the HDMI cable passes a signal about what the TV supports. It's all seamless as long as all the hardware in the chain supports HDR.There is one caveat with the Disney+ 4K HDR support, and I assume will be the same with the Netflix app when it is updated to support HDR.
You must have a TV that supports HLG otherwise you won't get HDR with the app. Apparently the Q box has to check the TV supports HLG to enable HDR10 output.
