Same here I just bought this tv on saturday, still playing around with it, one thing for sure though is I hate the android TV UI, it left like a incomplete product....Forza horizon 3 demo does not support HDR unfortunately, and PS4 is getting 4.0 update with HDR support tmr, maybe ND will surprise us and patch U4 with HDR! But doubt it, if anything they will save it for PS4pro release. I am not sure why you want to opt out of HDR mode when a HDR signal is being sent, if you want to view UHD bluray without HDR, you can simply uncheck HDR in the display setting on the player like Xbox one S. Its actually a good idea that they TV have a separate profile when HDR signal is being received, because the brightness and contrast setting will be very different than watch SDR source. So I emailed sony support (and they actually wrote back withing 12 hours!) asked them to pass my msg to their engineers and software team to optimized the "HDR video" picture mode more to reduce the input lag. As the 40+ millions of PS4 will be the main source of HDR contents (games) in the near future probably.

NOTHING is like a CRT...EVER! They don't make tv's like that anymore. That was a time when they cared more about the product than the profits.
digital edge enhancement is always off for me on any brand of tv, they are possibly the worse thing ever created in the world of television. I always use very bare bone setting on any TV set, always keep things as close to the original source as possible. As long as the TV panel is good and the manufacturer has a good upscaler , simply tweaking brightness, contrast and color are enough for me. For this TV, I max out the motionflow as rtings has stated, 0 increase in input lag and only dimmed the screen a little and clarity under the motion option enables lightboost, which is great for games. I notice the image remain sharp as has a minimal lost of detail as I pan the camera in most games compare to the TV I owned before.

Is that the upscaling option, and it can only be used in those two modes? Or is the upscaling just always on, all the time? That would suck if I can't use it while playing games.
I think all TV take whatever signal it receives and scale it to fill the screen, so yes it should be automatic. if you feed a 480p source, it will scale the fit the entire screen. Most tv will tell you which res is your source orignal material when you press in info button on the remote. rtings said mastered in 4K only work with Bluray that support it with the logo mastered in 4K, basically it does nothing.

very interesting info, because mine is made in Mexico, so I think there might be some truth behind his story. Guess you can ask the sales to check the box, if it should say made in mexico or not.
