I’ve been using a Shield TV for more than a year now, which had it’s fair share of issues with colour space conversion and horrible upscaling.
Though some of it is better now (colour space conversion) or fixed (resolution switching) I just bought an Apple TV 4K because of some few other annoyances with the shield.
I’ve been trying out Infuse and MrMC, but both have the same issue where red / blue colors don’t look as vivid as on the Shield.
Using the same settings (4k 4:2:0), Colour space set to “Auto” on the TV. The attached screenshots (Blade Runner 2049) are from MrMC, but looks the same on Infuse too.
When I set Colour space no “Native” the colors look closer to the shield, but way more oversaturated, so I don’t think that’s correct.
I tried 1080p on ATV, disabling resolution switching on the Shield, the differences are always visible.
Any ideas which player is actually correct, or what could be different? (I have a feeling that the Shield oversaturates colors…)
This only happens for my 1080 bluray rip sources, ranging from 10-30 gigs.
4k HDR movies look the same on all players (Kodi, MrMC / Infuse, MrMC)
TV: Samsung KS7000, same settings on both sources.
Shield TV: Shield Experience 7.0.2 (4k, 4:2:0)
Apple TV: tvOS 12 beta (4k, 4:2:0)
