Does the STR DN1080 have Dolby Vision and/ or HLG pass through?

Do the new 1080s have Dolby Vision and/ or HLG pass through?

Memphis3,

Not to question your integrity but did you actually test this? According to Sony, Dolby Vision will come to the STR DN 1080 via firmware update in the near future. The STR-DN1070 doesn't have a Dolby Vision update planned and isn't compatible.

If you did an actual test, please share with us the source material, source device, and TV you used to support your claim.

Re: Does the STR DN1080 have Dolby Vision and/ or HLG pass through?

wmunn07,

You're welcome. I hear Sony reported Autumn 2017 as the time frame for the Dolby Vision and HLG firmware update release for STR-DN1080.

I doubt the response that Memphis3 has given because like him, I have a STR-DN1070. I also have the means to test his claim with a DV enabled Blu-ray player (Oppo UDP-203), DV enabled TV (LG OLED C6) and DV disk (Fate of the Furious). I had tested with a demo file on a USB stick on the Oppo feeding the LG thru the reciever previously and the STR-DN1070 wasn't compatible. I replaced the 1070 with a 2017 Marantz NR-1608 and DV passthru worked.

Now I don't know if Memphis3 made a mistake or is misinformed but I can tell you he isn't viewing Dolby Vision pass thru with a 1070. You can bypass the video signal around the 1070 but that doesn't make it compatible.

If you haven't bought yet, you can find recievers in stores today comparable to the 1080 that already have DV and avoid the wait. I'd recommend that since Sony doesn't do a good job supporting thier old recievers once a new model shows up. Marantz, Yamaha, Denon, and Onkyo annouced that they would support 2016 models with DV and HLG updates. Marantz later extended that upgrade back to 2015 models. Sony won't touch thier 2016 models with DV upgrades. They say its hardware while Dolby says that any HDR10 compatible reciever is upgradable to DV. I believe Dolby before Sony because they created HDR10 and DV.

I just bought an STR-DN1080. Other 4K HDR A/V Receivers (from Denon, Marantz) are already supporting Dolby Vision.

 

***Support for Dolby Vision is a deal breaker for me. Fortunately I still have 30 days to return this unit. 

 

Dear Sony can you provide your customers with an ETA on when the STR-DN1080 will support Dolby Vision assuming this is indeed just a firmware update??

lussda,

You're late. Sony has provided the DV update for the STR-DN1080 at least in the U.S.

Shouldn't take very long. You can connect your unit to the internet or download it to a USB stick and manually update it.
