I really don't watch movies on Amazon prime much, but a few weeks ago I viewed the Protege. It was listed as UHD HDR. It looked great.

A few days ago I watched A Quiet Place part 2. I couldn't find any mention of UHD, but it did say HDR. But when I watched it, it didn't trigger HDR mode on my TV. Same thing with No Time to Die tonight.

Has Amazon dropped 4k prime movies? Or are they using an HDR other than HDR-10?

I checked Outer Range, and it played properly in UHD and HDR so it's not my TV or my Roku.

So I just checked on the prime video app on my phone, which I would never watch a movie on, and no time to die shows 4k UHD and HDR. Could it be a Roku issue?

Amazon Prime is showing older films supposedly in UHD but most are in actuality in SD. LORD LOVE A DUCK is an example of this.

Amazon Prime is a mess right now. They have a ton of movies ID'd as "UHD" but they're not.
