I also have the Oppo and the P65 and frankly I'm not noticing a difference between 4:4:4 and 4:2:2.

The biggest change from 2.0a to 2.0b is the addition of dynamic HDMI metadata. (HDR10 uses static while HLG and DV use...

I'm on a ski trip but headed home today with my Shield waiting for me to setup when I get home. Do you still happen to have a link to "the fix" with the Hub? Thanks in advance.
