    Gigablue ue 4k - connecting as SDR only not HDR?

    Have had this receiver for a few days now just, messing around with picture settings for a while now.

    Have to say Iím not very impressed with the picture quality and have just discovered itís not connecting to my TV in HDR quality, SDR only.

    When I flick between my Apple TV 4k and this (when on a 4k channel), there is quite a difference.

    Am I missing something here, or is there a way to make this receiver output in HDR or is simply not capable of doing so?

    If itís not Iím afraid itís being returned and replaced with a Vu+ 4k receiver .

    Using latest vix image btw, but Iím nearly sure it was the same when I tried Team Blue image when I first connected the receiver.

    Not even a Ultimo 4K outputs in HDR. No e2 4k receiver will out in HDR if watching HD.

    I've got GB and top end VU+, PQ is comparable, all good. If your not happy with the GB you won't be happy with a VU+. I'd suggest you look at your TV settings / enhancments etc....

    Thank you for your reply and that’s good to know. It was a 4k channel I was using it on though. I kept the same settings on TV for this HDMI port as I use for the Apple TV so direct comparison .

    I will try to adjust the settings to other settings again though and compare the picture quality. I’m thinking I might just send it back anyway though because I like the feel of the Vu receivers and have used them the last number of years.

    Can’t get the usb cable tuner working on this either (although I’m not sure if replacing with Vu receiver will solve this either).

    Just noticing on the Vu website though that Vu Uno Se 4k states it can output in HDR? Strange

    Just seen your post above too, thanks for trying that . I’m now wondering why it states that it does on the Vu website. Could this possibly refer to it being capable of displaying a movie from the HDD maybe in HDR as opposed to a live broadcast ?

    Why not buy single or twin hybrid tuner that fits internally? Much better than usb.

    Try openatv that might support that tuner.

    I tried it on openatv, receiver won’t boot with it connected. Openvix, i can see it in tuners but it makes Sat Tuner A become disabled.

    Tried it on Team Blue, let’s me scan full cable services but the likes of a free cable channel bbc1 etc won’t display

    No guarantee your usb tuner will work with the vu+. You might have to buy the vu usb tuner.

    Yeah I know that mate. Will wait and see. Guess I prefer the Vu receivers anyway after testing this one.

    No harm done

    Personally I like the Gb ultra ue 4K and the quad 4K, I think theyíre good versatile receivers.

    There is an issue with USB tuners. This has been reported to GigaBlue.
