    Hello Everyone! I need help if anyone knows why my Xbox X says my Samsung 55 inch 4K UHD doesnt support HDR10 for gaming. Games wont be shown in HDR? Model for my TV is
    UN55HU8550 its a smart tv, Also your tv setup doesn't support all HDR Modes. Some content may not display in HDR. Im on the Xbox X's settings in display and sound in the advanced video settings. Im asking how do i turn it on? The option to isnt even optional. I cant click it, I went to my TV's Settings picture options i clicked HDMI UHD Color. My Xbox X is plugged into HDMI1.. Its on, I was reading on the xbox X home screen the xbox assist and read the troubleshooting 4K and HDR and its says other names for HDR10 and one is UHD Color? So if my tv says its on and my XBOX X is plugged into the HDMI1 slot why is it saying its not capable. Whats is wrong? I unplugged the cable and restarted the tv and xbox and its still wont allow me to check the ALLOW HDR BOX? Any help would be appreciated. Very much. Thanks guys. I attached photos below of what the screen shows and xbox.. 20171116_005131_HDR. 20171116_005256_HDR. 20171116_004530_HDR. 20171116_004548_HDR. 20171116_004604_HDR.

    "UHD" means 4K resolution, not HDR support. I don't think that model supports HDR at all.

    Yeah you need the EVO kit.

    Guy at Reddit says it is great, FPHD had issues with it.

    2013 / 2014 edge lit TVs are not going to be super spectacular for HDR tho, I wouldn't get too excited about this. For the $400 price of the EVO kit you could be on your way to a 2017 black friday TV with built in support and better features... Just a thought.
