Yes, it is running a modded ATV version of Netflix, and can be "killed" at anytime.........  But, I pay for Netflix, should be MY choice which device I choose to watch it on.  This device has all the copy protection, but Netflix is just greedy.
Apparently the Mecool KM6 has HDR which is always on. So for any content the HDR is enabled even if the video is SDR so this is a big problem because the image on SDR videos (the majority of videos in 2020) is not beautiful and is dull and Colors are washed out if HDR mode is left on.

This is the same bug as on the Nokia Streaming box 8000 and on the Tivo Stream 4K.

So are you sure it's Netflix HDR and not just because HDR is always on?

Do you not mind the permanently activated HDR?

Or else did you find an HDR switch button or a way to turn it off? As there is on the new Chromecast ...
I think that if there is HDR written in the Netflix navigation interface, it is because the application really works in HDR.

On the Shield you can turn off HDR so you can easily compare the image of SDR videos between the 2 devices. And you will see that on the Mecool the colors are not the right ones and unfortunately are not beautiful

In any case, thank you for sharing the application, hoping that it works over time ...
