I didn't watch the whole video but skipped through it. I question why they would choose to leave SDR colour that way. Colours are incorrect. Did they put it on the wrong setting?

Really? This TV (that I also own) is now several years old. Does the addition of consistent new firmware dictate the quality of the unit? I don't see it as abandoning. The TV, for the most part, is...

I'm not so sure if we'll ever see it. FYI, the planned evolution for UHD BD is to go to 12 bit, or HDR12 sooner rather than later. We might have a year or so of 10 bit releases but then it should be...
