Please post a log so we can see if your TV is advertising HDR support.

Actually vero4k is connected to a home cinema maybe its the reason TV doesn’t detect hdr content?

Your TV may do HDR but your AVR does not. Check by plugging vero direct into the TV instead of through the Onkyo.

There is a way round this but it needs some work with the commandline as it’s experimental. Let us know if you are up for that and we can post instructions.

You need to update to ‘staging’. To test this update:

  1. Login via the command line
  2. Edit the file /etc/apt/sources.list
  3. Add the following line: deb http://apt.osmc.tv stretch-devel main
  4. Run the following commands to update: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade && reboot
  5. Your system should have have received the update.

Login again and type echo 1 | sudo tee /sys/class/amhdmitx/amhdmitx0/force_hdr

Play some HDR material and see if your TV reports that it’s receiving HDR (it should say HDR or PQ).

I also recommend you edit /etc/apt/sources.list again and remove the line that you added after updating. This will return you to the normal update channel.

Thanks!

Yes, save the file and exit the editor. Then do step 4.

If you’re using nano as a text editor, press Ctrl + O to save the file after you’ve edited it. The commands available via Ctrl are displayed at the bottom:

Also make sure you open the file with sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list, else you won’t be able to save your edit.
