    You mean reporting directv is using HLG HDR for programs

    some of them - HDR, while other - HLG HDR (what is looks like a bug of TV's FW), to be precise ;)

    Watched part of Mountain Express or whatever it was called (some train show) on 104 and it looked fantastic.
    Definitely HDR.

    Oh nice! Looks like they're early on their timeline. Will have to check it out.

    Your TV indicated it was receiving a HDR signal?

    Ever since the latest firmware update (1151 for the Samsung MU9000 series) I've noticed that the tv does, in fact, switch to HDR automatically. It always does it when I'm on the 4K channel but I don't know if that particular show is being broadcast in HDR. It doesn't always look so great. Also, it doesn't matter if I have the picture profile set to HDR or not. Not sure if I should leave HDR unchecked in the picture profile menu.

    I would get test files from Internet with HDR/HLG/DV/Advanced Technicolor/WGC/etc and play them on the TV (does it had USB to play ?)
