It hasn't been done yet. MS added it for Netflix at the moment and UHD in the future. It was a highly requested feature and they are trying to be more of the console of the people since sales haven't gone their way this generation.

TVs supporting the latest version of Dolby Vision HDR on Xbox?

This ^ post contains a link to the currently supported TVs.

At least this time Dolby is trying to provide current information to its customers.

The Sony sets with DV on that list is probably the way to go if your wanting to use your Xbox to play everything. Not sure if any of those TV's is within your budget.

If you want DV for 4K UHD movies the Sony UBP-X700 is probably the most affordable.

If you can still return the TCL set and get one of those Sony sets on that list it would probably be the best choice to make here.

This sound like a mess. I have a Xbox One X currently, but sounds like l'll wait to purchase a DV capable TV until they get this figured out.

I thought the SOny X700 only supported the Low latency DV profile? Otherwise I could have picked one up for only $72 when BestBuy screwed up an order. I needed a DV for the TCL 6 Series I ordered. So I got the Philips for $72 and just plan to use it for DV discs. And continue using my Sony X800 for HDR10 only discs..

Because you can't do everything on the Xbox. Heck there is no device out there that you can do everything on. And any device that even tries to come close, Makes compromises leading to some mediocre things.

Vizio support says that the issue is that Microsoft is running a beta version of Dolby Vision. Once they roll out the real version, the issue should be taken care of and all TV's with Dolby Vision should play just fine.

See Will Samsung and Panasonic succumb to the Dark Side thread created by Staying Salty

IMHO its more to the point that Samsung wants exclusive advantages to draw more customers to them. Problem is that HDR10+ is too late to the party.

Thank you for the reply. Like I had said before, I love my tv but some 4K movies seem a bit dark a mb d I think DV would help give a brighter picture. Maybe some time down the road they will change their mind and go with it.

I had just noticed that My One X was saying my TV was not Dolby Vision capable due to the software on my Vizio. So I went out and bought a Sony UBX700 player for $150 at Best Buy... so much better than the X. I was having studdering, skipping, blackouts, and other issues when playing movies on the X. Used the new player all weekend and wow was that awesome! Plus watched The Last Jedi in DV and it looked amazing!

From what I hear many people have issues with the Xbox as a 4k player. Glad you upgraded to a dedicated player! Sounds like its working out for you nicely.

Right now the X can only run DV in streaming apps anyway, which I just do straight from the TV (I have a 2016 OLED). It would be a minor annoyance if the X adds DV support for UHD Blu-Ray playback, as I wouldn't be able to make use of it. That being said, the difference between standard HDR and DV isn't too big of deal to me, so I'm fine with that until I inevitably have to upgrade my equipment again somewhere down the line in the future.

You should be good to buy a new TV. Everything I've read/seen, and from what I can tell from the list linked a few posts up, it looks like it's mostly 2016 models, with some 2017 models from certain makers that have issues. From what I can see on said list, most 2018 and 2019 makes/models should be fine (though I'd still suggest checking said list for whatever models you were considering).

I'm starting to believe that's never going to happen since the industry seems to be moving away from optical disc. It's almost half way through 2019 and there's still no DV update for UHD blu rays on Xbox X.

Also, the Xbox X Dolby Vision app on Netflix doesn't work that well as it converts all content to DV, even content that's not mastered in DV. When that happens, my TV applies Dolby Vision settings to SDR content, which means to OLED at 100 on non-DV. The Amazon Firestick 4K does that same thing. The Netflix app on the TV seems to work properly.
