You're correct: turning off range match setting, most streaming media will revert to the native resolution the ATV4k has; and it my case it is 4k HDR.
What I don't get is how LLDV as implemented by ATV4k and Sony produces somewhat a lackluster result. Given the DV specs, it should win hands down given its addition of dynamic metadata to the core HDR image package and the 12-bit colour mastering
. In other words, the DV metadata should instruct the TV to change its brightness and colour gamut on a scene-by-scene and frame-by-frame basis.
I think some 940E owners here also have LG OLEDs TV sets...can you please comment if the LGs also have this issue whereby DV is slightly dimmer than their HDR counterparts? In my setup, the delta isn't significant like night vs. day, but it is noticeable enough that my family mentioned it...
Also, as another data point, Narcos Mexico, which Netflix streams it in DV, was completely unwatchable via the native streaming app when it came out last year...ATV4k improved upon that, but it still doesn't seem to surpass HDR (at least in my opinion and setup).
