    That’s the only streaming service I have with HDR.

    I don't know who to blame for that.

    I confirm exactly what you are seeing. Episodes 1 and 3 of Mad Dogs have HDR and episode 2 does not. Something is screwy somewhere and I don’t know if the fault lies with Amazon, the Prime app, or Apple TV. All I can say is several months ago I watched Jack Ryan and Mrs. Maisel in full HDR and now they are SDR only.

    Heck, go back two weeks ago to my post #805 and I was definitely getting HDR on Jack Ryan and The Widow, but now nothing...

    I'm surprise this issue hasn't been talked about more on the internet or on Youtube and such. It seems like only a few of us have recognized this problem and/or willing to discuss it. I confirmed that only two episodes of "Mad Dogs" has HDR which are #1 & #3, the other episodes are non-HDR. Again, this issue with Amazon Prime shows really bugs me as most of the Netflix shows don't exhibit the same HDR/DV issues.

    For me, the one good thing to come from this is having a better understanding of ATV4K settings, but I'm still puzzled by these HDR issues.

    At least now I know it isn't something screwy with my system.

    Actually, it was your comments that cause me to remember prior problems by Tony that gave me cause to look into this issue a little deeper.

    I can't recall anyone ever having a positive comment about Amazon Prime streaming on any device. It's always looked noticeably worse than competitors like iTunes and Vudu and the navigation can be nightmarish. If it's the only place that has a thing you want, you're kinda stuck, but that service has performed so poorly for me over the years that I can no longer give it the benefit of the doubt whenever an issue occurs.

    I don’t have issue with the pq.

    Sometimes it takes 3-5 seconds at the start To fully load to top pq though.

    My issue is with the inability to pause and ff and rw in a normal way.

    What is different about it? All the apps use the same controls that are native to tvOS...

    It’s definitely exactly the same with the ATV 4K. Hit to pause, then swipe right for ff and left for rew.

    Looks and sounds as good as a Netflix no problems on the 10” or 120” screens.

    AFAIK it works for me - but so far as HDR is concerned I’m more of a Netflix/iTunes HDR guy, than Amazon Prime.

    When I was trying HDR on Amazon I remember it being really badly designed- you could end up with either a non-HDR or HDR version of the exact same show, depending on where exactly you selected it from on their show/movie menu

    I wouldn't assume it's because of the ATV, but perhaps there is something with Amazon. You should read my prior posts in which I spent hours on this non-HDR issue.
