Q. What about devices for SDR 4K HEVC (H265) video playback over HDMI 2.0 to my SDR only capable 4K TV ?
Yes, it would have avoided me to take a Odroid C2 for nothing =/

2. Replay HDR UHD content for display on an SDR display. This will require the same as 1. but also additionally requires HDR to SDR EOTF (aka dynamic range) conversion, and probably Rec 2020 to Rec 709 colour gamut conversion. (This is often called Tonemapping)

The ODroid C2 (and other S905 boxes) can do 1., but can't do 2.
Thank you for this very comprehensive answer!

So, I see that Kodi 18 is making improvements:

Will the odroid be right?
I tried the alpha version of LibreElec, but could not start. If someone could try something, I'm interested.
