Info about HDR needed

I watch a lot of .mkv remux files made from UHD discs. As you cannot remux DV as far as I know and my TV doesn’t handle HDR10+ I have to be satisfied with HDR10 or HLG.

However, I am not sure about how to find out what type of HDR a 4K remux has. For instance:

Do I read the above correctly when I say this file contains a HDR10 image?

Are their settings in my Vero 4K+ that need to be set to get the most out of this file? I read somewhere one can change stuff that relates to the chroma subsampling, but I do not understand how that works or effects play.

Yes, HDR10+ would report as
HDR format : SMPTE ST 2094 App 4, Version 1, HDR10+ Profile A compatible

Thank you. I am thinking of joining the 4.9 kernel test because of this:

  • Added support for full HDR10 metadata output (MaxFALL/MaxCLL metadata is now passed through)

Am I correct that this file I posted above would benefit from that opposed the current 3.14 kernel? Would the Vero 4K+ create a better HDR image than it does now in this particular case?

Yes – you’d have a better experience with 4.9 playing this file.
