For all your apparent jubilation, I just don't see why you seem to have made it your mission to rubbish something you have not tried. Or why you care so much that you spend all this time trying to disprove things, when all you need to do is say how you have set yours up and accept that others will do as they please regardless of your sensibilities towards total accuracy. Which, by the way, you will never get on a consumer display.
As I said before, I personally don't care how it is doing what it does, but the image is A-MAZE-ING. And as it is a thing that can be changed very easily, I can try all sorts of different permutations to my hearts content.
As it is a Dolby Vision output that is going into the Fury, then dynamic something or other is happening at some stage.
Whether it truly outputs a 10,000nit signal or not (not sure how one would actually tell anyway as a Dolby signal doesn't display any metadata on the disc), the affect, on screen, in my room, where I and my family watch our content, is frankly superb!! Love it.
So I don't really mind about your derision, I love what I have found.
Take care all.
