    I have an LG B6 OLED, which is supposed to be able to display hdr.

    However, when I toggle hdr on in Apple TV settings, the Apple tv doesn’t like it and the screen goes black.

    I’ve tried two different hdmi ports, both on the side of the tv, neither likes hdr.

    Does anyone else have this issue, either with LG or another TV set?

    Did you change your TV to Ultra HD Deep Color for that particular HDMI port?

    I did not.. thank you for your reply. I assume the setting should be toggled on? I’ll give this a go when I’m home later.

    Yes, it should be turned on for any port that has a HDR abled device on the other end. if ARC is the only TV HDMI port you're using, only turn it on for HDMI 2, which is the port for ARC. Also I would recommend against turning it on for ports that aren't in use or doesn't have an HDR abled device on the other end though. Your TV will restart when you change this setting so don't be alarmed.

    This can be found in your TV setting under "General".

    Hi-

    When I set the tv to deep color mode, it won’t read the tv. The same thing happens when I try to set to hdr in the Apple TV interface. When I try doing
    Both at the same time it also doesn’t work. I’ve tried turning the setting off and on several times. Any ideas? Thank you so much

    Do you have a premium certified HDMI cable? Normal HDMI cable won't pass HDR.

    This may be the bottleneck.. any particular brand you recommend? I’ll order on amazon.

    I have those exact same cables. You’ll be all set with those.
