It's not a problem - I am unsure if they pulled HDR support due to an issue with 10-bit signals or just Netflix HDR support, or ALL HDR support. Sometimes the answers we are given when we, as...

HDR support was added to the VSX-90 via firmware upgrade in 2015. Just to ask, did you make sure you set the IN for full 4k 4:4:4? If not, review the last few paragraphs of page 29 of the manual...

I sent the Sammy UHD player back due to cable failure. I only had a few hours with my buddy's Panny UHD unit, so we ran it direct to the TV rather than through the stereo. 13ft cable worked fine...

I have tried it with i.p. scaler off and i.p. scaler on. No go. Marantz tech in the past had me set to i.p. scaler off and use the HD tuner (and another input choice that escapes me right now), so...
