Vero 4K h265 HDR movies banding / pixelated

Edit: this is now fixed in the latest software.

Hey guys,

I’ve been researching this a lot to try to find answers and a solution but I can’t seem to find a fix. Some of my h265 movies in HDR have this crazy banding / pixelation problem. They play fine when directly plugged into my LG C7 so I know it is not the files themselves, these are remux’s, not compressed. But it occurs on the compressed files too. It occurs mainly in skies.

I have the HDR autoswitching on, but it feels like it isn’t switching correctly. I also have the adjust refresh rate to always.

Does anyone have any ideas? I’m reading that maybe the LG TV itself is the problem which would suck…
I’ve enclosed a screenshot.

You can manually set 10-bit output until HDR autoswitching is improved.
This fixes banding and flickering on LG OLED sets.

Thanks for confirming. This won’t be necessary in the very near future (next couple of weeks).
