Yup, lots of us.

In my case I'm using an Ultimate and the Hub communicates with the Shield via Bluetooth.

If you need IR, folks are using a FLIRC.

The 5.1 Shield update combined with the...

Sounds like it.

That's the rub.

20' is on the edge of what can be pushed via current cables. Some folks have success at that length, some do not. Even with "certified" cables.

Virtually all content is encoded as 4:2:0/8 or 4:2:0/10.

For display it must ultimately be converted to 4:4:4/10 (the P65 is a 10-bit panel) and it's just a matter of where the...

Yes, that's the correct setup.

The pre-outs can be assigned for EITHER scenario but not both.

This.

In addition, I don't think Yamaha makes an integrated 11 amplifier AVR but from what I've read on other threads the Yamaha AVRs are doing much better with 4K HDMI compared to other makes.
