I'm counting driver slots, and we'll have at least 7 driver changes for next year, and perhaps as many as 10 (if both Manor's are different, and someone under contract goes to Merc). Have there ever...

Not sure, but Keke Rosberg won the '82 championship with one whole win. No driver had more than two that year.

Edit: 1984. Lauda won with just 5 wins, to Prost's 7.

To answer your 2nd question:

For non-HDR The Crown on Netflix (2160p) is the best looking show out there, beats any 1080p bluray IMO. I was watching it 2 nights ago and thinking to myself: man...

I'm on nearly the same setup as you, except a 2016 Vizio M-series, and it was in HDR. Make sure you are not using HDMI port 5. Have you tested any other Amazon shows for HDR? Red Oaks or Bosch for...

BTW the m-series definitely supports 2160p video at 60fps. I tried casting Netflix' test pattern (just search for "test pattern" in netflix), and the Vizio app showed the TV was playing at 60fps.

I can confirm it works on Samsung's UHD BD player.

I'm nearly certain the TV supports 2160p@ 60fps in HDR. At least the rtings.com review measured the input lag in that format.
