    Powering on the OneX now. OMG, the old consoles take forever to power up, just to get into an update screen, which takes even longer. Everything about it feels like forever. I've definitely been spoiled by the SeriesX.

    Still no Purchase Pilot stuff showing up for me on the OneX. I guess Niece/Nephew will need to keep waiting.

    Yeah, that's what I was checking on the OneX, but the Insider Hub didn't have anything additional available to me.

    not sure if people care:


    ehh =P if you can't see a resolution difference, I'm unsure of you'll have any chance seeing a difference between HDR10 and DV. Probably close to 0 imo except for videophiles who have perfectly calibrated setups etc.

    Think evilboris got a look at an early preview/leak of this before.

    If I remember correctly it was basically wrapping the hdr image into DV. So don't think there was anything like dynamic tone mapping from metadata.

    So yea, I wouldn't expect to see any difference unless tv only supported DV of cause.

    wait, shouldn't this only work with DV TVs?

    Why would someone want to wrap HDR10 into DV? I thought this was support for native DV games

    Yeah, not a biggie, as I'm sure once they move beyond a certain point they'll open it up further. It's just such a horrible experience to see availability only from scalpers at ~50-100% higher costs and see stories predicting it to continue into 2022.

    It took me quite a while to find a place with the new Xbox Wireless Headset available too. When I did, I ordered a set because of scarcity. Normally I would have waited a month or two for more reviews and updates. This is certainly a different market all around than with the last-gen and last-mid-gen releases. It almost feels like the X360/PS3 launch era.

    Yea this will only work on DV tv's.
    Isn't there tv's that are DV only, not HDR10? Truth is can't remember, I was thinking of someone had one of those, but probably more likely to be only HDR10 than DV?

    Basically unless it's using things like dynamic tone mapping I wouldn't expect to see much if any difference.
    Don't think theres any DV games, so probably just takes the output and sends it as DV.
    When I heard his impressions what it was doing I scrubbed it from my mind, so I'm probably wrong.

    all HDR TVs support HDR10 as it does not require a special silicon to support it.
    Not all TVs support DV necessarily though, I'm lucky enough to have my TV be updated to support DV though, frankly I didn't think that was going to happen.

    Be interesting if there is any difference apart from the DV logo coming on.
    Not holding my breath to be honest, hopefully it will be one of those things that need to be there for devs to start to make use of.

    I thought I read something about that this new support for Dolby Vision is more than just HDR. It will automatically adjust all your display setting for optimal viewing?

    its just a different encoding (more bits than 10), and I believe it doesn't alter the tone mapping.

    But you still need to calibrate your display settings for DV I believe. I could be wrong.

    I think you are right. DV will support any XS HDR game by using a wrapper around HDR10 content but for games that actually support DV, you will get dynamic tone mapping.

    DV just lets you flip a switch without worrying about the content

    really.. that is intriguing. I'm surprised that it will set all of this up for you because some people may want it custom depending on the lighting the room, but most interesting. I will definitely be doing some comparisons of my DV setup vs my custom calibration
