Damn.... So all my movies need to do this.
I’ll pass on DV..... 
Thanks.

Yep !
Only for the Ultra Hardcore DV Bluray Rip - Nerds / lovers Love

I will stick with regular HDR10 and Premium 4K HDR TV Picture Processing & Dynamic Tone Mapping - thank you to avoid all that stuffing around.

With same movie on LG 65B8, the DV version looks much better than the HDR10 version + DTM.

Yes - all DV players and DV displays need to pay Dolby a licence to use their technology (even if the SoC or GPU already has compatibility, you have to license it to enable it). It's not an open standard, nor is it royalty free to implement. It's a premium solution, and Dolby make money from that aspect of it.

DV isn't alone in being a licensable solution though - lots of audio and video codecs are covered by patents and have to be licensed (h.264, h.265 are both covered by licences for instance, and Dolby Digital was too until its patents lapsed) in commercial products.

My guess is that you will only see official DV support on devices that also support Netflix or Prime Video in DV (so official players like the Apple TV 4K, nVidia Shield TV 2019 etc., and some personal computer solutions. Recent Macs now apparently support 4K DV in Netlifx on Safari?).

Properly DV licensed chipsets are slowly trickling on to the wider market for Low Latency DolbyVision (LLDV) video playback.

And with Kodi (from 05:17): [link]

Though that's not playing within Kodi is it, Kodi is firing up an external player (a bit like many people do within Windows)? If my German is correct, Kodi is using Google's Android TV Video Player rather than the built-in Kodi player?

"Googles Android TV Video Player" - can u link to which one you mean? thx

@wrxtasy :

Just info to update first post Intel x86_64 section:
Second fork mentioned (https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=349861) has been merged into master branch and kodi 19 nightly already supports HDR10 passthrough.

Also master branch has full BluRay menus support.
