Oh the irony. I have been fighting HDR issues on my Shield (I have a non HDR 4K TV and playback of all my 4k HDR titles have muted colors because tone mapping doesn't work). 4k HDR titles play back perfectly on my HTPC running win 10 so tone mapping of HDR titles to SDR works perfectly fine there.
Sunday the Xbox One X went on sale for $399, so I picked one up. Got home, unplugged the Shield and connected the One X in its place and installed ET. Tried a regular BRD title, worked perfectly, tried a 4K HDR title and it was completely unwatchable and the video was very pixelated and moving at about 5 fps but audio was fine.
My Emby server (in sig) does not support HVEC transcode since it is Xeon based and there is no GPU in it (it sits headless in a server rack).
I guess I'll go back to using my HTPC for 4K movie playback. Is this issue likely to be addressed at some point in the future?
