I have an older JVC projector that does not switch modes automatically when fed a HDR signal.
I have two projector profiles setup and can trigger each one from HA via the JVCProjector custom component. - This work well!
My media player is an Nvidia Shield TV running Plex.
Since I have been unable to find any kind of data state that would identify “HDR” content…
My thought is to:
- create a playlist in Plex that has all the HDR movies
- export that as a text file
- setup a HA automation that is triggered by plex’s “playing” title and match it to the list of known HDR titles
- if there is a match, send the JVCProjector command to switch viewing mode to HDR settings
Is there a better way to accomplish this? Obviously, the playlist->file->automation will have to be updated each time a new HDR movie is added to plex.
