am I wrong ?

q10 connected to TV and HD audio via ARC is possible depending on TV model.

Sorry I guess it's not. Same limitations as optical out via arc

I see the contrast changed a bit but that's it, may be it is normal with 4K demo...
Several users have noticed this, and if I recall correctly, @looun reported it to HiMedia.

Hello everybody,

Important:
- I do not have a professional camera to film the TV. I use a camera in auto mode.
- The colors of the HDR videos is much nicer with my eyes then on video.
- I apologize for the bad view with the camera.


Here's a comparison video between, via beta f/w 1.03 that fixed HDR (official f/w due any day now) :

Nice work! Pretty dramatic difference in PQ... Kodi wrapper to external HiSilicon player is the way to go, unless Koying can leverage it from within SPMC at some point.

At least looks like SPMC is doing 10-bit through ffmpeg...

Today I learned that Dolby Vision on Q10pro is a total lie!!!

I saw a video podcast interview with one of the heads from Dolby. Dolby Vision is hardware based and the first chip to have Dolby Vision algorythms included will be a mediatek chip for 4K Blu-Ray Players. It can´t be integrated by Update!!! MAYBE it could become software based on gaming machines like PlayStation 4.5 or coming Microsoft box....however that will need a lot of horsepower to be done.

Since Dolby Vision is ontop of HDR10 Q10pro will be able to pick up the HDR10 information in DolbyVision videos. So we don´t need to worry about not being able to play DolbyVision "enabled" videos. At least that is what I heard.

Yeah, not sure how 'DolbyVision' is licensed in Q10 Pro, but based on what @wesk05 posted, may matter not if we're going to only see Dolby in premium streaming services. Chinese boxes like Q10 Pro can't even do HD w/Netflix and such.

Personally, I think Dolby Vision is a non-starter for Chinese boxes. Dolby Vision is now limited to VUDU & Netflix. The Chinese boxes are never going to get VUDU or Netflix HDR.
Personally I would trust what wesk05 has to say rather than relying on a set of Advertising tech specs on an Asian Android box. No matter what the company.

Futeko should amend their 'Dolby Vision' HiMedia advertising if this is the case.

You also need to know that both the source and sink should have Dolby Vision chip. What this means is no Samsung or Sony UHD HDR TVs will support Dolby Vision HDR this year (and likely for years to come).
HiSilicon is a Dolby Vision partner.

True, only the high-end Vizio support Dolby Vision.

Seems like DolbyVision will become like HDDVD. Nothing wrong w/it, just not getting overall studio and manufacturer support.
