Does the A10 support Dolby Vision? Seems it was supposed to but didn't, waiting for licensing by Dolby?

Yes, the hardware is able to support DV BUT like all MIC products, licensing from Dolby requires $$$ and Dolby has so far been very stringent in the licensing of their proprietary IP and in this case Dolby Vision to media player manufacturers. Only a handful of brands supported. So no, Egreat will probably never able to playback DV on all their media players.

Hello exclusive,

Which firmware version are you using?

I'm on 1.3.1.6, don't have any issues with the wavy lines.

Maybe you want to play around with the color bit depth - select 10bit.

Huh? How does scaling cause wavy lines when engaging HDR?

Hi ALL, just got my A5 a few days ago and was exploring through it, overall I was happy with the performance in terms of the PQ and SQ but one thing that is annoying me is the wifi connection. I tried to stream video from my WD MYCLOUD and it keeps on loading and suddenly hang and a pop up message come out indicating egreat player not responding and asking me to wait or quit. My A5 is just sitting next to my router and was wondering could it be some configuring issue I need to do ?? Any advised will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Depending what you are trying to stream probably the WD is not powerful enough to allow the stream.
Than there is also the question of how you are streaming (wired/wireless),weather your router is gigabit?
All this plays an important role.

it may due to hdd issue. I encounter this issue with my a10 before. there were bad sectors.
