The only thing that should be an issue is 10-bit (or higher) 2160p60 with RGB/4:4:4 chroma.
Does "Auto" allow output of 4:2:0 or does it just automatically switch between 4:4:4, RGB standard, and RGB enhanced?
Currently, I do not know the answer to you question, but I will test it tomorrow with a 10-bit pattern. Id imaging it can easily output 2160p 24p 10-bit 4:4:4. Not to get into the HDMI topic of discussion but HDMI 2.0 will be fine for 24p material. Trying to output 60fps is a different story. Currently I'm assuming the K8500 takes the 4:2:0 and decompress it to 4:4:4. No matter what, currently its all theories and assumption till we get some UHD BR testing done.
