With the z9d I honestly am fine with hdr10. The DV looks different but not better (see more shadow, but more washed out).
Yeah, it "maps" I don't want that, I want the actual signal.
The CPU is unquestionably better on paper compared to Sony TV SoCs but in practice, "less annoying" because it is more responsive but at the sacrifice of accuracy due to mapping.
Siri is not *plain* broken at all, in fact it works really well and it searches across numerous platforms/apps when searching for media.
I also don't understand the "volume" complaint. What does that even mean? You want to hold down a button to speak to it and ask it to turn down the volume vs. just pressing the volume button to turn down your system?
Your issue with "washed out DV" seems to be limited to you. I have seen few, if any other results, of people with Sony DV enabled sets reporting any cases of Dolby Vision being "washed out". This is from my experience of watching many DV encoded movies/shows across my 3 Sony displays.
At the end of the day, all I am saying is that all the Shield brings is a more responsive UI and a 1Gbps NIC for those that have 4K BD backups and need the throughput. This is at the loss of better image accuracy and no Dolby Vision. It is and will remain a highly redundant device for Sony TV owners unless they are in a massive hurry to start the movie 2 second faster.
