Wrong bit depth reported

I noticed that on my 4K non-HDR Roku TV (model NS-50DR710NA17), getVideoMode ( ... VideoMode()asString) is returning 2160p60b10 and on my 4K HDR Roku TV (model 55P605) it is returning 2160p60.

Shouldn't it be the other way around? I thought HDR had a bit depth of 10 and non-HDR had a bit depth of 8.

Re: Wrong bit depth reported

I am surprised but it may be that getVideoMode() returns the "current" resolution of the video plane, i.e. switching that as media player requires.

Check what's in devInfo.getDisplayProperties() though
