Just received the Nvidia Shield. Same setup as my Roku. No problem streaming Netflix or Amazon Ultra HDR to my LG OLED. No connectivity issues. I can tell it's HDR mode by the logo that appears in the upper right corner of the LG OLED when the program starts. So much for Roku support telling me it's my TV and not their box.

The specific problem I am having regarding HDR is that when I go to the Roku Display Menu and change the setting to 4K Ultra HDR the screen goes black and about 10 seconds later I get the notice that I didn't accept that setting so it reverts back to 4k Ultra (not HDR) only. What this means is it didn't display the accept for that mode so it reverts back to prevent an inability to see anything. If the Roku had a proper HDR handshake with the LG I would have been able to accept that display mode. So, it's not a Netflix or Amazon thing but the Roku not going into HDR mode with the LG.
Now to answer your question. Absolutely, I actually sat last evening looking at some scenes from "Good Girls Revolt" on Amazon Prime at the stunning images. The depth and nuances of color are stunning. I have already seen that show so I was just looking technically at the images and they are amazing. I have made several feature films, had a 35 MM screening room in my home and can tell that 4K Ultra with HDR invoked and the LG OLED blows everything else away.
