X1 Box HDR?


X1 Box HDR?

Does the X1 box broadcast in HDR? Want to know because just found out the Monster HDMI cable I am using from my box to my HDR tv is not HDR rated.None of their cables are for some reason.Wasted money on it.If the box does not broadcast in HDR I will just keep using the cable I have instead of getting another one.And yes I have the cable Comcast gave me but am not using it.

We don't know about Comcast and HDR. They haven't said. Comcast is not broadcasting anything in HDR now although they will someday. Also we don't know for sure which boxes have HDR capability. Personally I suspect only the new Xi5 and XG1V4 have HDR capability.

I would assume Comcast has not had 4K/HDR compliant HDMI cables to hand out yet. They just started passing 4K through the box for Netflix on streaming video.


I certainly hope the 4k HDMI cables will be properly labeled to tell them apart from past HDMI cables.
