Bt tv pro box not showing HDR.

According to Bt you have to set Pro box to UHD 10 BIT to show HDRcontent.When i do this and try to watch Netflix in HDR it sets the output to 1080p.When i watch a HDR film or show on the Nvidia shield or use apps in my tv,the tv shows a HDR detected message on screen,this never happens when using the Pro box.If i set box to UHD 8BIT it will play in UHD,but never in HDR.Hope this makes sense.

    Some TVs  eg some Samsung models  will enable HDR automatically for their native apps but for external devices require it to be enabled (eg in TV Settings , External Device Manager , HDMI UHD Color) .
    Could that be the cause ?
