Re: STR-DN1080 and Apple TV 4k

Hi Bob. Thanks, but Sony released a firmware update in early 2017 that enabled HDR. I see the “HDR” symbol displayed in the projector info menu when I’m playing content via my Oppo HD blu Ray player. I’m aware the original marketing brochures did not acknowledge the projector was HDR compatible, but with the firmware update it made the projector work with HDR content. How do you explain that the Apple TV is working with the setting of HDR @ 30hz if the projector wasn’t compatible with HDR? Thanks.

Re: STR-DN1080 and Apple TV 4k

I agree.  I have the exact same issue with my vpl-vw365es and Apple TV  4k with HDR.    I'm able to view AppleTV HDR only at 30hz but nothing higher.

Re: STR-DN1080 and Apple TV 4k

I, too, am having problems with Dolby Vision passthrough (Apple TV 4K to DN1080 to HDR 4K TV). The picture flickers and the sound drops out constantly. I haven't tried lowering the refresh rate on the Apple TV 4K from 60 Hz to 30 Hz. But frankly, that's a deal killer. If this AVR can't handle Dolby Vision passthrough at its native rate of 60 Hz, it's a fatally flawed receiver. 

 

Can someone from Sony let me know if this is a firmware issue that can be fixed? If not, I will have to return the receiver to the dealer for a refund.

Re: STR-DN1080 and Apple TV 4k

I forgot to mention that I am using Belkin ultra high speed hdmi cables rated for Dolby Vision (and recommended on the Apple website.) And when I connect the Apple TV 4K directly to the television (removing the DN1080 from the path), Dolby Vision works perfectly. So it is definitely the Sony AVR that is the problem.

Re: STR-DN1080 and Apple TV 4k

I have an Apple TV 4k. My projector is 4k but only supports 24Hz, not 60Hz. You can manually set the Apple TV 4k output under settings, Video and Audio. Find a setting that matches your TV, like 4k-hdr-60Hz or whatever it supports.
