That's a good question and one I'm not sure is easily answered at this time. My hope would be that the HDR metadata would pass through and not be blocked, but the fact that the HDMI ports on the...

I was trying to address the "double dipping" and "changing the level twice" that didn't make sense to you, while you indicated that "either or" did.
