Bro,

I am trying to confirm whether the LG C7 is actually displaying video in HDR mode.

From the A10 I play Youtube 4K HDR video from the Youtube App (ver 2.03.06).
On the LG C7, it says 2160p but NO HDR indicator.

When I play back from a 4K HDR disc Oppo 203. The C7 will display a HDR10 info on the screen

What'e your experience?

Hi WIM, it's confirmed that HDR mode does not kick in with this beta firmware.

WARNING: Too many bugs...not ready for prime time release! Not recommended to members to upgrade to the latest Nougat firmware (7.1.1)

There has been a lot of bugs that need to be ironed out and now I know why Egreat was reluctant to jump from the stable lollipop firmware (5.1.1) over to the Nougat (7.1.1). It affects the most important thing which I simply cannot stand...the overall video quality on my movies and the screw up by Nougat on the video signal levels (RGB Vs Limited) amongst other bugs I have discovered along the way.

I have decided to revert to the last beta firmware using lollipop firmware and everything worked smoothly as before. The only gripe for the last firmware is the broken Google play services affecting the Play Store. But that is something I can live with.

Yes. Support up to 8TB hard disk capacity.

Any sata hdd with 7200 rpm will do just fine.

It took quite a long time to update via the OTA option. The only difference or rather new implementation is the movie wall poster aggregation and the presentation layers becomes more robust and faster in this latest firmware update. Apart from that, I don’t see any changes.

It's terribly slow to update the firmware. I still cannot get it updated.

You can choose to update via the USB update...

I'm quite pissed with Egreat development team at this moment. But that aside, I think the new Egreat A13 does indeed looked very well-polished. And as always, the Egreat team are very good with their hardware and build but when it comes to software updates...Sigh.

Looks like Egreat is still listed as a terminated HDMI adopter by HDMI.org. Based on this reason itself I would not consider this brand.
