Just got a new CCgTV (in addition to my AT4k+Infuse) because it seemed to be the only streaming player to play proper FEL. I’m testing but on Plex most titles play as HDR10. I think happens if the video has an HDR10 base layer.
You can check by turning off the “force Dolby Vision” in the CCgTV settings to off. Else everything will “seem” to play back as Dolby Vision even if it’s not actually.
Because infuse though they should fall back to HDR10 as they though those is fake Dolby Vision as paper not mentioned those should be support. Required HLG layer? Haha! Which source actually have HLG. Faint…
If want HDR10, just set the device as HDR10 instead of DV.
I doubt the developer had DV TV and never check with his own eyes the differences.
Doing this in latest version better just take out DV support because latest version is totally break it instead of better support.
Very wrong decision. Infuse keep weaker and weaker and not user friendly. For example no A B C scroll bar. This is very simple and basic should have option but infuse developer decide not having it, I think they only have 10 title in the database.
I am done with it.
Plex is my default now. Actually the only good of infuse is better support and customize in subtitle. Other than that, I don’t see the greatest of infuse anymore beside keep destroying the DV support from time to time. This is not first time Infuse break the DV support, how dare you highlight as better DV support but instead you break nearly all of it.
Looks like some people want ATV+Infuse to work like some sort of device that plays things incorrectly as long as it plays them. That’s not how it should work, and the ATV limitations as a DV streamer are what they are and must be accepted. If anyone wants that kind of behavior from a streamer, it’s simple, go to the market and buy something else (and meanwhile stop whining about it here).
Please keep ATV+Infuse tidy and not misleading. Keep doing a good job Firecore!
The goal we have with Infuse is to play things in most accurate way possible. With Dolby Vision, this often means falling back to the HDR10 layer as some Dolby Vision enhancement layers are not supported on Apple devices.
There are some other apps (discussed earlier in this thread) which are enabling Dolby Vision output for videos which are actually playing in HDR. This may give the appearance that Dolby Vision is working, but it is very much not the case. I don’t necessarily believe this is being done intentionally to try and fool users, but instead is just the result of a misunderstanding of the structure of Dolby Vision files and the playback capabilities available on the Apple TV.
With all that said, if you would like to have Dolby Vision output enabled for these videos (or any videos for that matter) you can simply enable Dolby Vision in the Apple TV’s Video and Audio settings menu, and then disable Match Dynamic Range. Doing this will give you Dolby Vision output for all videos. Dolby Vision output tends to have a slightly warmer feel to it, which some people prefer.
Just the one user as far as I can see.
Plex will be the ideal choice for him though.
Based purely on nothing more than the fact he sees that Plex plays them incorrectly then anything that doesn’t play them incorrectly is broken.
