Re: New Roku Ultra - Dolby Vision!

There are multiple profiles. DV created a separate profile for older Sony tvs that is a player-led profile, in which the device does the DV processing. Multiple devices do support multiple DV profiles, so there are some that will work with your tv.

Re: New Roku Ultra - Dolby Vision!

I did a search as you suggested, and holy cow, did Sony mess up. Claiming that everyone else has to update their products to with the a Sony TV. Sheesh. I had no idea they did something so messed up. 

I guess we'll just have to wait until someone actually tries the new Ultra on a Sony TV to see if it accepts a DV signal. Since the Sony problem is two years old now, hopefully the Roku engineers were aware of it and have tested it out.

Re: New Roku Ultra - Dolby Vision!

My TV is only a 2019 model, do you know which DV devices will work, and will the new Roku Ultra? I would hate to buy it and not have it work.

 

Thanks

Re: New Roku Ultra - Dolby Vision!

You have a newer tv. So the Apple TV 4K should work with it. The Panasonic 820 UHD player, The Sony UHD player, and many others. I can't see why the new Roku would not work with it.

Re: New Roku Ultra - Dolby Vision!

It's looking like it currently is only supported 4k 60hz dolby vision.
People with older tv's that only support 4k dolby vision at 30 hz or such are being forced to use 4k hdr or 1080p dolby vision. 
I have an older LG OLED for 3D support so have no plans on upgrading. 
Will be returning the ROKU.
