    I have an hs17 with 2 mini receivers and a Samsung UN658000 tv. My problem is when I turn on the receiver and tv to channel 104 in the upper right corner it shows my resulution to be 3840X2160. When the picure comes on my picture mode say it's is standard not hdr+. Let the program continue the picture starts to fade and is definitly not 4k. Directv came out he did a few things where my picture mode said hdr+ needless to say after he left the fading of the picture started again. I went on the internet and people were saying it's a software problem. Does anybody have experience with this problem?

    Thank You Bob H.

    Check the settings on your Samsung UN658000.

    HDR+ is a Samsung Feature.. Nothing to do with DirecTV. Directv Outputs HLG HDR

    It's off. When I turn the tv on to channel 104 the picture is bright, the longer I keep the TV on the picture starts dimming.

    Sure sounds like a TV issue.

    I have the same TV set he does. Don't like it all that much but what's happening to his is something I've never seen. Kinda hard to believe a year old set could go bad that fast but I don't see any other answer to this puzzle.

    Doesn't happen on any other channel?

    Wait a minute...how do we blame the TV set for this happening on one channel? Selective failure? Why wouldn't it happen on other channels? If the problem is the TV.

    Can't blame the One Connect Box, this set does not have that feature.

    Since HDR content blasts to full brightness the TV may be having issues keeping it up

    It would help id the thread starter gives us the "full" model number of his Samsung TV.

    And that happens on only one channel? That doesn't make sense. I bought an NU8000 a year ago and I do think Samsung took a step back on the 8000s that year what with the OCBs being phased out for that model but it's still a good set. Doesn't mean I think you're wrong, I just don't see why it's only on one channel. Tell me it's on several channels and I'll agree about it being caused by the set itself.

    Yes it makes perfect sense.. lol Regular Directv channels dont have HDR so they are not going to trigger the TV to full brightness Only the Directv 4K channels support HDR which makes sense then he sees it on channel 104

    Since I haven’t heard anyone else report having a similar problem, we could easily conclude that this is an issue unique to the OP’s equipment. Typically, one would swap out components to try an isolate the problem. If the OP has a second TV capable of 4K HDR, moving the DTV receiver to that TV would be a good first step.
