No, the TV doesn't have the hardware for it. Also they would never do it for free.

Don't have access to it myself but others are posting that you can adjust HDR peak brightness and other adjustments on the system level.
Great news. So stupid that games would be mapped at 10000 nits or whatever.

Im gonna wait a few days to see if it settles down first.
Good to see that your Yammy is working as it should.
Just as a counter anecdote, ARC/CEC works almost perfectly with my Pioneer VSX-1131. It turns the amp on with the TV and starts with the last-used input. Works great.
Probably once a month it starts with the AVR on the wrong input but not a big deal.
It's worth a try for the people having problems with ARC/CEC to try powering everything off at the power point and reconnecting all the HDMI cables, I've read about this solving ARC problems for people.
Also I have read about people using Apple TV needing a special HDMI cable for that that has the CEC pins disconnected, because the AppleTV is very aggressive about stealing input and turning everything on/off.

If you're on Windows, use the program "mediainfo" to see exactly what the audio codec of the file is, and report back here.
In Kodi there's settings
for what audio formats are supported:
- Dolby Digital (AC3) capable receiver.
- Enable Dolby Digital Transcoding: To be selected in case the audio output device only supports multichannel audio.
- Dolby Digital Plus (E-AC3) capable receiver.
- DTS capable receiver.
- TrueHD capable receiver.
- DTS-HD capable receiver.
What program are you using to play? Kodi?
