Re: X1 Yoga 3rd gen HDR display not HDR capable

Hi,

 

So I've realised that playing HDR videos on YouTube via Edge is only possible when my X1 Carbon with DV screen is plugged into external USB-C power. As soon as I run it on the internal battery, HDR disappears from the list of resolutions.


Why does this happen?

 

 

Thanks.


The Windows default is to "optimize for battery life" when playing videos on battery power.  You will need to change this setting in the video playback settings to "optimize for video quality."  This should solve your issue when on battery power.   


Hello,

 

Yes that's right I've found this out a few weeks ago. Thank you.

Hi Guys, allow me to shed some light on this issue.  I dont claim to have all the answers but, will track them down for you.  

 

To take full advantage of your display, you will need a few things.

 

1. The monitor .inf refrenced earlier in this thread.  This includes the wide color gamut and High Dynamic Range structures required by Windows 10 1803 to enable HDR displays.  It also includes the Dolby Vision whitelisting and color calibration parameters (more on this below).

 

2. The Dolby Vision App will be released very soon.  We will push an update through Lenovo Vantage which will allow you to download the app and take full advantage of your display.

 

I hope this helps explain a few things and I will report back when I can provide a firm date on the App release.

 

Thank you for your understnading and being a loyal customer!


Hi Jon_P,

 

It has been more than a month since you mentioned that the Dolby Vision App will be released "very soon". As far as I know, it is still not available either through Lenovo Vantage or through Lenovo support website. Do you have any update for this issue? Thanks

Additionally, can you explain why Windows still claims it's SDR only after installing it?

Re: X1 Yoga 3rd gen HDR display not HDR capable

Why great news? Will not change the situation that the Display cant display correct HDR content. (no BT.2020 no 10bit output from Host). This app will also only adapt HDR Content to SDR.

 

Its still false advertised. The Display is still no HDR Display.

What are you going to do about it other than repeating yourself over and over again? What do you get by repeating it? (Honest question. I really dont get why people do what you are doing.)

Re: X1 Yoga 3rd gen HDR display not HDR capable

Unsatisfied and product not as expected maybe. But this is hardly false advertising. HDR is the abbreviation for “High Dynamic Range”. It is not a specification but a general term for high contrast image (like high fidelity sound lol). Any implementation that yield improved dynamic range can be called HDR. It doesn’t have to meet any quantifiable standard. If Lenovo advertised it as “HDR10”, which is a published specification, it will be false advertising.

 

Enhance SDR content to HDR is widely accepted among manufactures. Heck, my Acer XR382CQK ultra wide monitor only has 300 nits / 1000 ANSI and still being advertised as HDR capable. Not to mention, it even show up as HDR capable monitor under Win10’s display setting.

I agree. I’d be happy enough if this laptop’s DV screen shows up as HDR in Win10. 

 

Put it this way, I like the HDR YouTube videos in Edge so much more than the same being played in SDR.

Re: X1 Yoga 3rd gen HDR display not HDR capable

Yes, iam disappointed. And by the way, the Display cant display HDR content, no matter how you explain it. The Display doesnt have the ability for advanced Colorspace (BT.2020) and, i think many here still dont understand... yes, the panel is only 8bit, but its necessary that the hostsystem do output at least in 10bit . If not you dont have the needed advanced HDR color.

 

Iam just frigthened how many here just accept this from Lenovo. You will never use HDR with this display. (even windows gives you not the option.) And if someone selling a device with big word (HDR) and then after i bought it i see its no HDR display and cant display HDR iam really furious. Its a very good display, but its NO HDR. Thats why iam pissed off.

 

Why do you accept and even defend that you were decieved related to the display. So sorry, i cant accept that i bought a normal SDR Display that is advertised as HDR.
