Either ask the mfr for a certificate of compliance or a spec sheet on the cable you are interested in, or maybe somebody here has purchased the same cable and has a way to verify HDR or not.

That would seem reasonable. The mfr should spec that out, and put that in writing. If they don't, then it appears that they are misleading you on purpose just to make a sale. These cables are not...

ARC currently only supports 5.1 audio and Atmos. HD audio will not be possible until the introduction of HDMI 2.0, and then you will more than likely be limited to a "special cable" for HDMI 2.0 that...
