is it me or the HDR improved watching Netflix HDR content? At least for the newest videos. Usually, with Netflix, I could notice immediately it was an HDR video because it felt like the brightness was spread all over the screen. This time instead I noticed it only because raising the AVR volume in "A Series of Unfortunate Events" the white of the AVR's volume level spread. While season 1 is in SDR (actually I see now that Netflix before playing says the TV show is UHD 4K - while in the menu while playing it says 4K Dolby Vision) and moving (on the fly) from season 1 to season 2 didn't feel like the picture deteriorated (on the contrary!).

Anyway, the HDR vision in my Sony Bravia XD80 of that and some other HDR shows is very pleasant, now. Was that improved in the video recording, tvOS or my TV? All of the above?

Ok, thanks. It must have been "A Series of Unfortunate Events" anyway, because "Atypical" doesn't look that good with some lights in the scenes.
