I have a Philips PUS 7805 which is connected to an Xbox series X using the Xbox hdmi cable.

I have noticed that when I play a game in HDR the tv doesn’t recognise it as a HDR signal and stays in normal ‘game’ mode. Making everyone look horribly washed out.

Even when I enter the Xbox calibrate HDR mode, the xbox says your tv is now in HDR mode please calibrate, I look at the TV settings and it says it’s in SDR game mode. I’ve tried changing SDR modes etc but still no joy.

The Xbox states my tv can take HDR & Dolby Vision Gaming but when I play the new Native adolby Vision games (F1 2021 or Dirt 5) or any standard HDR games my tv never recognises the HDR or Dolby Signal and remains in SDR mode.

The tv correctly identifies when Apple TV sends a Dolby vision signal and displays this correctly.

Anyone else experience this or know of a solution. Ive tried another tv and the HDR mode correctly switches on when the Xbox activated it.
I’ve been really excited to use Dolby vision for games

Thanks all

Did you try a different hdmi cable .. I bought a couple of 8k leads off amazon and perfect.. I believe that model of TV does not have HDMI 2.1 ..

Hi. So the new firmware for 7805/7855 in available to download OTA. Dolby Vision works now on Series X.
2 display modes appear: DV DARK and DV BRIGHT. No sign of DV game. Tv turns automatically to HDR game (and for me the display now is very vivid and have to change my settings) BUT whey you open the Info menu it says [email protected] DOLBY VISION. I do not knot how's the input lag.

finally it works I have been checking for updates weekly but your comment is what notified me of the update of course, I can confirm it works always now for games and for apps like disney plus and it looks really good, definitely better than HDR for me.

Unfortunately no DV support for Blu Rays with the Series X, but I guess you can’t have everything.
