Backstory: I have a Samsung TV the does not handle HDR well (screen way too dark). Since Netflix etc do not allow for 4K without HDR and the TV doesn’t allow you to turn hDR off I bought a Roku which does.
I notice that the HBO Max app playback on the Roku is significantly less sharp than the one loaded on the TV. Streamstick + straight into TV. Bandwidth plenty. Big Bang Theory is especially noticeable.
Any ideas? For now I’ll just play it off the TV but what a shame. The quality difference is so noticeable even my non-picky gf noticed it.
