Xplay on LG 55b6v

I've just discovered Xplay because Plex won't play HDR movies. Xplay looks the answer, however...

Does Xplay switch the TV (LG 55b6v) to 2160p automatically. There seems no way I can tell what resolution Xplay is playing the movie at.

    Actually, if you have the LG OLED B6, you can use your remote, click the mouse scroll wheel, while playing a movie. Then your output HDMI will show a bar at the top of the tv. Click your output bar and it will list all modes.

    I.E PCM, BT2020, 2160P/1080P,HDR,DolbyVision etc.

    Hi, thanks but you can't do this for watching movies via Apps. What you described is only available if you're using a device plugged into an HDMI port.

    Bump: Anyone know if Xplay can switch a TV (LG 55b6v) to 2160p automatically?

    I always use xplay for 2160p HDR content. It works out of the box with LG E6V.
    The official Plex App wont play it without transcoding.
