If it's not a problem for you, you should go on enjoying it!

Thanks, I'm familiar with the importance of metadata for tonemapping when you rely on the metadata (which is often incorrect, even when the source sends it properly). I just didn't notice this metadata issue on the ATV because I have an Envy Extreme that does dynamic frame by frame tonemapping with HDR10 content and doesn't need metadata to do so, so I didn't even look at the metadata reported by the Envy or the Maestro while I was evaluating the ATV. At least you know that there is a solution for that issue if Apple doesn't fix it.
I wish I had spotted this HDR metadata issue even if it doesn't apply to me, I would have reported it too. The Dune HD 4K Pro has a similar issue, and that's one of the reasons why I have one in the family room but I use other sources in the cinema room for my disc content (Oppo 203 clone and HTPC with madVR).
I tried to look at the nVidia Shield TV Pro but my understanding is there is no automatic frame rate match, that nVidia has stopped developping it that beta feature and that you have to use an unsupported menu that could go at any time to manually specify the frame rate you think applies (your guess)? If that's the case, it's not acceptable to me.
Also I only need another box for streaming services with Atmos and Dolby Vision (the latter only to run some tests, I don't need DV with an Envy). There are many UK streaming services beyond Netflix and Amazon Prime that I need and I don't think they are all present in the Shield TV Pro (Apple TV+, NowTV, Britbox, Mubi, Disney+, BT Sport). Finally there is no integration that I can see in iRule (IP) or the universal remote of my Denon X8500H (IR. The ATV is supported in both. Lastly, there is no stock for it in the UK, so I can't get a unit to evaluate it. If you don't game and don't need Plex or Kodi, I'm not sure that the Shield Pro is a better option than the ATV, but I'm happy to revise this if any of the above is incorrect.

You are right, I meant 24p, 30p and 60p. I think 25p and 50p are OK. I only tested 24.00p anyway.
