Does the XG1v4 box support Youtube HDR?

I recently switched to the 4k XG1v4 and know it is working properly because I can get 4k HDR on Amazon Video to the TV.   But when viewing Youtube 4k HDR content, my TV does not show that it is receiving HDR.  The picture looks pretty good anyway, but just not HDR according to the TV.    It is not that important since the TV has it's own app for Youtube (that also didn't do HDR until a recent update), but I'm curious about whether it is supposed to work or not.

Doubt tv has Dolby vision since the logo doesn’t appear on 4K VUDU titles with Dolby Vision. It’s most likely a budget HDR 10 tv that upconverts to 10 bit

Per this article, doesn’t mention Youtube app supporting HDR. I always thought it was just Netflix and Prime

The link @Comcast_Support posted above also doesn’t mention HDR on YouTube app just Netflix and Prime

Changing the coax and trying all hdmi cables I have the 2160p hdr setting is still pink on HDR content from the box unless the resolution is set at 1080p 60. Ordered compliant hdmi 2.3 cable hopefully that fixes the 2160 hdr issue.

This indeed confirms 4K content on YouTube is not in HDR or I would have encountered a pink screen such as a 4K program on Amazon/Netflix

YouTube HDR is not currently supported on the XG1v4.  YouTube HDR is supported on the Xi6.
