Re: Yoga C930 4K screen not detected as HDR in Windows 10

Yep, that's the nail in the false advertising head

Re: Yoga C930 4K screen not detected as HDR in Windows 10

Just went to BestBuy to check it out. In Settings > System > Display > Advanced display settings, it indeed only says standard dynamic range (SDR) and 8 bits color depth. And changing the three options in Dolby Vision software did nothing. What a false advertisement! Shame on you lenovo.

Re: Yoga C930 4K screen not detected as HDR in Windows 10

Hello, any update on this? What if I connect the laptop to a 4K HDR TV, will I see HDR contents regardless of whether the laptop's LCD is FHD or 4K?

I am fascinated by this thread -- on the brink tonight of ordering the C930 and now reading this. Thank you for bringing this up.

No idea @lenovotv. Seems like they are pretty much steering clear of this thread at this point.

Am I correct that if I have a large HDR 4K TV and want to watch HDR contents along with functionality of 2 in 1, I should go for X1 Yoga Gen3?

All right -- what is the answer here?

 

If the machine comes with Dolby Vision THAT IS HDR. Dolby Vision is just a brand name for HDR, 

like Kleenex is a brand name for tissue. 

Is the issue how to turn on HDR then? 

I am seeing two sets of instructions.

The first, from Windows, says here you need to do two things:
Go to System/Settings/Windows HD Color Settings/Turn on Play HDR games and apps.
And also to go to:
Display capabilities and check to make sure it says Yes next to Play HDR games and apps.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4040263/windows-10-hdr-advanced-color-settings

Are those in the setup for the C930?

The second set of instructions says something completely different:
Go to Display, and toggle the Night Light option that reads “HDR and WCG.”

Some clarity would be good before I purchase this machine, or not.

@winemuse I think the point lenovo team was trying to make is that this laptop supports Dolby Vision but you won't be able to see it on this Yoga C930, but you can view it on a HDR display. It's like saying the laptop supports 8k, 144hz, 100% adobe RGB, but only if you output and view the video on a 8k, 144hz, 100% adobe RGB moniter. It's just BS. You call that support? Really Lenovo??

I found one option for HDR setting. 

 

Type hdr in windows search bar and go to HDR Video Options, and make sure stream HDR video option is turned on. In battery options select optimize for video quality.

 

Thats it, now you can watch HDR content from Netflix, Youtube(on edge browser), etc.
