Hey guys, Just a quick question. I have a 2015 model Samsung JU7500 tv, and was made aware that the 2015 range of UHD 4K tv's received a firmware update which enabled HDMI 2.0a to enable HDR to be received from external sources. My Tv model was not HDR ready when I bought it though, and was wondering if this firmware update actually allows HDR playback? For example, I have a Bluray player which can provide HDR, and was wondering if my tv and that firmware update would allow the HDR to work on my to? Thanks :)
 
The only description I can find on the latest firmware update to your TV is this
http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/TV-HDTV-Projectors/Samsung/Samsung-UN78JS8600F-LED-TV-Firmware-14604.shtml
which doesn't mention HDMI 2.0a or HDR,
The HDMI 2.0a update would only allow automatic switching to HDR mode when the TV detects the HDR information on the disc. You would still be able to switch manually with HDMI 2.0 if the set were HDR capable.
HDR isn't just a firmware issue. If requires the set to have more maximum brightness and greater color range which are hardware not software.
Only a 4k blueray player will support HDR.
