When you say 4K h265 no HDR - do you mean playing back SDR 10-bit files, or HDR 10-bit files but output to an SDR display with tone mapping ?

I've had zero issues playing 10-bit SDR h.265 1080p files (mastered myself from 10-bit AVCi100 4:2:2 1080i sources) on my N2 (I don't have an N2+)

I just mean 4k h265 that has HDR and one that does not have HDR but is still 4k etc..
and also running this on android TV with kodi.

Also is there any picture or performance issues if the TV is 4k but does not have HDR but playing a HDR file?

You tested with 1080p, but what about 4k?

Does android TV + kodi have comparable or worst performance than nvidia shield running android TV + kodi?
and how does the 4k h265 HDR and non HDR movies play on nvidia shield vs n2+?

Ah - you specified 10-bit non-HDR originally. I thought your question was particularly about 10-bit SDR content - which is pretty rare. I don't have access to 10-bit UHD SDR content to master from - so that's why I discussed 1080p SDR 10-bit which I mastered myself.

What sources of UHD h.265 SDR content do you have that you're interested in playing? In my experience pretty much all UHD h.265 stuff is HDR, though there are some Netflix series that are early UHD SDR that Netflix stream in h.265.

Most UHD SDR stuff, outside of OTT streaming, still seems to be h.264 (and 8-bit, as 10-bit h.264 is a niche format) - though I do have some early UHD DVB-T2 h.265 off-air test stuff that is SDR 8-bit.

Hi there,
i couldn't find an answer by searching the thread, so I'll just ask: 

Does the N2(+) "announce" itself to the TV/AVR via HDMI-Link or whatever its called? (on the PS4 it is)

For example, my FireStick4k and PS4 can be selected through the TVs input selection when they are turned on.
Selecting them will change the AVRs Input to that device's HDMI Port.

This is a fantastic feature, since I'm using the TV remote for everything (Sony 65XH9505, Bluetooth Remote), it allows changing the AVR input with 3 button presses.

Otherwise one has to go throught the AVR's "Now playing" menu which works, but is considerably slower.
AVR is a DENON X3500H, btw.

Thanks in advance!

Out of interest, when you say UHD do you just mean 4k or are you aware of content that's 4k WCG (BT2020) and SDR?  The existence of displays that handle that (but not full HDR10) suggests there is/was some about.

I was making more of an attempt at differentiating UHD (aka 4K) h.265 stuff from UHD h.264 stuff.

Most UHD h.265 stuff I see these days is also HDR (HDR10 Rec 2020 + ST.2084 PQ EOTF usually, though sometimes Rec 2020 + ARIB-B67 HLG EOTF) - though Netflix and Prime Video have some UHD SDR stuff that they encode in h.265 - though I think this is all Rec 709 gamut too (i.e. not Rec 2020 SDR)

However there is some UHD h.264 stuff kicking around - and that is almost universally Rec 709 SDR.
