There are different types of non-movie content. There's the material created at 50p from the UK, that created at 60p from the US, and that created by Netflix/Amazon as their 'originals' which is often at 24p. Plus other stuff.
You won't get HDR on the material greater then 30 due to bandwidth unless it is 1080p which is highly unlikely. The key is to have a player that can use the original frame rate, as soon as the player is forcing 60p then most options are off the table. There's plenty of 24p content that works fine in HDR (given the brightness limitations of the PJ anyway). Most players/apps will simply show you the SDR version of material if HDR isn't possible.
The Sky Q box for example forces eveything to 50 so UHD can only be shown if the bit-depth is reduced to 8 (which it can do), Then you'll get banding, and it doesn't yet have HDR. When it gets it they will probably use HLG, which is another three-letter-abbreviation that you'll need to consider.
All told it is a minefield, and much of the trouble is caused by the 10.2 Gbps issue. If you can stretch to a 9400/5050/6050 or wait for another one that does 18 Gbps then most of those problems go away. Then you can play stuff at 50p/60p, you'll get HDR and support for HLG, and you'll get much better out of the box HDR viewing since the PJ is much improved in that area. Of course your AV amp and cables will need to be compatible, it never ends but you might consider trying to future-proof it for a while at least.
Your post over on the UK site seemed to get lost in the noise, I saw both but replied to this one.
