The biggest bummer is that doesn't sync with Dolby vision or HRD10+ on top of not being able to sync when using the built-in apps.

thanks for that note. i bought the hue play for PC but wanted to move it over to console/tv - but if it wont work for HDR then i guess i wont bother

From what I read if you have a modern receiver like I do with multiple HDMI outputs can run one to tv and other to this device and all will be good. No worry about HDR

This product while good in theory needs a drastic revamp. The fact t hat its not compatible with built in streams apps is absolutely ridiculous. too many features that dont work to even bother with it.

It's supposed to get all info through hdmi. How do you want it to support native apps, it's just impossible
I agree that they should support Dolby and HDR 10+ that's a lack but for native apps it's just not designed for it, I don't think it will ever be possible unless tv brands starts making ambilight like Philips tvs which I'm sure won't happen
