Dear all,
this is my first post, I bought new ATVK4 just one month ago and I downloaded Infuse 5 pro with lifetime update.
My intention was to play my 4K HDR .mkv files on my Loewe 55” UHD without HDR support.
Unfortunately when I play these files (i.e. The amazing Spider-man, RedSparrow, Logan, The Martian, Lucy, etc.) the colors appear too dark than the corresponding 1080p file.
The ATV4K is setted in the following mode:
Video output 4K sdr 24hz
Color profile RGG high (I tried the other options also)
I’d like to understand if ther’s some other parameters in order to obtain the correct color output.

Kind regards,

Perfect,
I already download and installed the beta version and I performed some test with a 1080p panel with Amazing Spider-Man 4K HDR version.
Tomorrow or the day after I’ll perform the test with 4K SDR panel.
Until this moment the color mapping seems correct.
Kind regards

Hello all,

James and dev team, thanks for improving our experience in the next release solving this issue.

Pikkholoh, mrrobotoplus, Would you be so kind as to share your impressions with us of the beta release? I'd appreciate it if you'd share some pics with the differences as well as James did in his previous message.

Thanks in advance.

I know you're anxious to see the new goodies (me too! Wink ) but James is the only one that can really talk about beta releases in the forum. That cuts down on the confusion when little differences and big changes happen during the beta process. Smile

Dear all,
during these days I performed some tests with new release of infuse comparing with the old one.
In my opinion the color manage is good.
I taken some pictures directly from my tv (sorry for the poor quality), where it's possible note the lighter color of the new release.
Kind regards,

Thanks for these pictures! I agree with you that there's an improvement with the colour management with the new version. I appreciate your work testing for all of us the beta version.

James-

Is the new hdr to sdr tone mapping output wide color gamut? In other words bt2020/sdr for original hdr content? Or does it down convert to rec709/sdr?

As a projector owner, I’d love to be able to keep the wider color (of uhd), while keeping the standard gamma.

Thanks,
Jeremy

Hi James,

I have upgrade to 5.8.1 and I have tested 4K HDR content again on both my SDR TV and projector.
The blacks are still showing no detail and the image is still much too dark (I have the same source in SDR to compare).
ATV 4K is configured inRGB High, but YCbCr is the same.

Any idea what could be wrong ?

Thank you !

Thought so, but the screenshots above led me to think otherwise, and James mentionned the 5.8.2 fix was for HDR displays.

"5.8.1 includes an improved HDR > SDR tone mapping curve, so you would see an improvement if you were playing HDR on an SDR screen.
The changes we now have in progress apply to 'near black' levels when playing HDR video on an HDR screen."

Any idea when the beta for 5.8.2 will be released? I really appreciate all the effort going into improving the app.

As far as I’m concerned, ATV with Infuse makes it the best retail streamer on the market (and I believe I’ve had just about everything out there).

5.8.2 also includes some fixes and improvements for iOS/tvOS 12, so we expect to have this available within the next 1-2 weeks...prior to Apple's public release of course. Wink
