    It's not going to do dynamic tone mapping because that's not what LLDV (Profile5) is - as a stream it's basically preprocessed with a static ST.2084 curve but VS10 is pretty good I have to say - great thing is, depending what EDID you feed it, VS10 spits out in full time SDR, HDR or LLDV for any input of SDR, HDR or DV. Conversion is very good and certainly the most stable as far as black clipping goes.

    I haven't sussed out the full list of DV profiles and levels yet - for example I'm not entirely sure what's going on when you give it a Profile 7 MEL stream yet - it spits out LLDV (assuming you have an LLDV EDID) but I assume that's by way of the HDR10 base layer, but because it's Dolby's engine, it may take into account the RPU.

    VS10 HDR to SDR is excellent, and so is HDR to LLDV so we have a lot of options. I haven't had this in the cinema yet since it's far easier to test on a TV, especially near a PC, but it'll be interesting to see how it performs in there once we get a bit more closer to a release.

    I think once the major bugs are ironed out, and they're dropping like flies, it'll be very interesting to see if VS10 can be made to do full time SDR.2020.

    @mirror, what do you reckon ;)

    I think I have seen 2.0b only with Dune (just verified). Strange using the same SOC?

    HLG is supported by the RTD1619 chipset in general and used by some (Cable/Satellite) streaming services:

    HLG is defined in ATSC 3.0, Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) UHD-1 Phase 2, and International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Rec. 2100. HLG is supported by HDMI 2.0b, HEVC, VP9, and H. 264/MPEG-4 AVC, and is used by video services such as BBC iPlayer, DirecTV, Freeview Play, and YouTube.

    By the way I can't login to Youtube?

    There is no substantial difference between them. Don't worry about it.
    The support of HLG depends on the processing capability of the chip
