I have chosen for a non NUC-alike solution with an HDMI 1.4 port but actually using the available DisplayPort with a converter to HDMI 2.0a. I don't think 3D can be any better displayed then what one is getting on a passive 4k Oled TV, this is my opinion, period. Up till now I don't regret my choice, but maybe later on, when the W10 Creators Update has been released, that could be different regarding displaying HDR with my HTPC. Time will tell.

Is there a reason you will connect the HTPC directly to the TV and not trough your receiver?

I receiver does not seem to do HDR very well. In this case I could connect it through the receiver (as 3D does not involve HDR). I have noticed that the 3D looks amazing (best I have ever seen) if I play the disc on the Xbox One S. However I do not want to keep changing discs and wanted to rip them to a NAS and then play them from there. I tried interlaced on a older Kodi build and the results were not that spectacular (the 3D was not 3D enough).

I am now planning to build a HTPC using Kaby Lake Pentium G4600 with a AsRock Z270 board with HDMI 1.4

My question is should I use hardware mode or interlaced mode ?
I saw the receiver has HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 support, but missing the "a" specification on HDMI? In that case, HDR isn't a option, you're correct.

In relation to displaying 3D. If the motherboard has HDMI 1.4 only, then you could go for a 1080p/60Hz resolution and the "hardware" choice or for a 4k/30Hz solution and choose Interlace. I would prefer the 1080p option with HDMI 1.4 only as a available connection.
