Does anyone know if I connect the 75UH8500 to a non-HDR capable, 2015 era 4k UHD Marantz receiver via the TV's HDMI 2(ARC) input, would that connection's EDID somehow disable the internal TV apps like Amazon Prime video and Netflix from playing in HDR/Dolby Vision?
In other words: I know I can't pass an ATV 4K or other HDR/DV capable device via HDMI inputs thru the receiver and retain HDR, but if I just want to use the internal TV apps at highest quality w/ HDR and the HDMI ARC passes audio back to the receiver for sound playback, is that viable?
Also I noticed the Apple TV 4K only can go to 30Hz on Dolby Vision, but 60 on HDR. Is that true of other media players too? Is 30 fps w/ DV (considering the programming/sources of Dolby Vision that is easily available) worth it or is HDR/60 a better experience for most?
Was debating an Nvidia Shield 4k but lack of DV had me considering elsewhere, but if the TV would be limited to 30Hz on most any HDMI connected Dolby Vision media player, not sure if worth worrying about? Do the internal apps that can do DV support 60Hz? Is the DV content out there even made at 60Hz?
