Parasite HDR not playable?


Well-known member
I just purchased Parasite from the store to my Strato player which is allegedly 4K HDR. The download started but I noticed it was downloading an HD copy. I went to the listing and saw that the 4K download was unchecked. I checked it and got a message saying something like "you're about to download an item that may not be playable on your system." I haven't completed the download yet so I don't know if it is playable or not. I assume that this is an error and the store thinks I'm downloading to a Premiere server. Is that right or is there actually an issue with Parasite? I'm worried as there's no 4K disk version so maybe the store is wrong and it's HD only?

The warning is being displayed because the store believes -- based on the EDID information reported by your Strato -- that your Strato is connected to a display device that is incapable of displaying HDR content. When this is the case, downloads will default to UHD or HD quality.
