Granted, it's a shame for a player not to have exact 24/1.0001, but it'a barely an issue.
As for HDR, I compared the output to my Oppo 203, and frankly, I don't see any difference.
So yes, these 2 issues should be fixed, but they are mostly invisible on regular material. I'm sure though that one can find test patterns that will show then.
I think there's definitely a sensitivity issue with repeated frames (The 4K repeats frames rather than drops them - dropped frames usually indicate throughput issues rather than bad playback) as has been said many times, it bothers some people and not others.
And it's only noticeable on moving scenes, notably pans, so a lot of the time it can go unnoticed, but for those of us that see it, it can't be unseen and takes you right out the movie.
I also suspect that a lot of people, either knowingly or unknowingly, have some form of frame interpolation/smoothing set on their TVs - the work of the devil as far as I'm concerned
It's a real deal breaker for me but after Zidoo solved it on the X9S I'm hopeful Dune will come through also. It'd be a shame if they didn't.
The meta data issue is very much dependent on your display and how it handles HDR, in other words, how it sets the gamma in relation to the content light levels. I set mine manually using custom curves, so I can decide whether or not to use CLL or whether to use a more generic "one curve fits all" but it's better with correct metadata, particularly for highlights.
I don't think any of the 1295 boxes spit out correct metadata yet, but Zidoo have managed it on the 1296 so maybe it's possible for the 1295 players too...
(by the way - you did it again
- it's 24/1.001 not 24/1.0001, conventionally written 24000/1001)
