    You are not alone. See this thread. 4K resolution keeps unchecking!

    I have this issue too. It didn’t use to happen when I had a 4k non-hdr tv hooked up to it. However, after hooking up an LG 4K OLED with HLG, I find that on channels 104 and 106 the screen and sound will occasionally go blank and take a couple seconds to come back. Very frustrating and not sure what can be done.

    I've had my C61K-700 since June 16. After it was updated to 0x0fba in December 17 I began to experience the video going black and audio loss issue on the 4K channels. My C61K-700 was updated to 0x0fbf in April 17 but the issue continues.

    I'll just put my $.02 cents here....I'm having the same issue as you with 4K unchecking itself, and it no longer recognizes my Onkyo 4K receiver either to my Vizio P65-E1. This occurred when my HR54 went to the national x1037 while my C61K is on the same x0fbf. I have two C61K setups with the same type of TV's- one connected directly to the TV, the other setup going thru a 4K compatible tuner. However, while I was able to still run x0d8f on my HR54 a couple weeks ago, I had ZERO issue of 4K unchecking itself, and it also recognized my Onkyo NR838 as a 4K compatible passthru tuner. This occurred from December until a couple of weeks ago when x1037 went primetime completely. I'm thinking it has to do more with the x1037 release on the Genie than anything else. Just my experience.

    it's possible, as DTV have Broadcom support for SW developers to program HDMI interface's parameters

    Not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but here goes:

    Just got all the DirecTV 4K equipment installed on Monday and was watching a little of channel 104 last night. Are those programs on ch. 104 in HLG? I was watching something on the history of the US Caribbean islands and another on the Panamanian rain forest (sorry I forgot the exact names) and my Vizio said they were 2160 but not in any form of HDR - it said 2160/Normal.
    I know DirecTV said the 4K World Cup games would be in HDR (HLG specifically, I guess) so I want to make sure that everything is working correctly on my end!

    I’m not sure if everything on 104 is hlg but I did notice a concert was on and my lg showed hlg. Believe it was Mumford and sons concert

    Edit: just checked and shows will have a hdr tag in guide if it supports it

    Yep - My LG displays "HLG HDR" on 104, 105, and 106.

    Mine does, too, but I randomly get dropped 4k signals and all those displays is "HLG HDR" on the screen's upper right corner until the 4k programming comes back for a second, then drops again, back again, drops again, and then comes back on for a while. I changed HDMI cables to a 4k cable.. the issue remains. Seems like D* should go back to the drawing board due to these issues.. random loss of 4k signal, the "All Channels" recording fiasco, the 4k resolution repeatedly unchecking, etc.

    There is no such thing as a 4k cable. Make sure that the HDMI cable that you are using is "Certified Premium".
