I got a Shield which can do HDR but I find image quality not as good as Linux NUC.
 So what now? Who is behind then?
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.

Linux x68 is behind Arm CPUs which can do HDR and Windows which can do HDR.

 So, you want HDR on the shield with worse image quality than Linux ... I have an understanding problem here :-). And: ARM CPUs have nothing to do with that.

lol
No I want Linux to have HDR so I dont need to keep both devices. I need to switch to shield when I watch HDR.
Yes not often as not much content but still annoying to have 2 devices for different media.

 Okay. With proper tone-mapping that we have now - I miss absolutely nothing when comparing to what my TV directly plays. When HDR infrastructure is available we will for sure have it on Linux, too. Btw. Shield's HDR has massive issues - in e.g. 24p mode when you have 4k mode it's not properly mapped ... In comparison to that I highly prefer the GL control we have.

 There seems to be some issues with the resolution/refresh rate. It boots up half the time in 4096x2160_30 or 1920x1080_30. When I try use the gui or xrandr to set it to 1920x1080_60 it results in a "no signal" most of the time and I have to restart kodi. On the times I've been able to get the 1920x1080_60 to stick, I then play a video and when I stop it, it will get anoher "no signal". I'm also not seeing any of the 4k/60hz resolutions available at all, but I'm not worried about that just yet.

I just did a clean reboot, it came up in 3840x2160_30, so I used the gui to set it to 1920x1080_30 and that went fine, I then tried to change the refresh to 60 and it went to a "no signal", i then used xrandr to set it to 4096x2160_30 and the gui came back and then i uploaded the logs -here

Let me know if there's anything other testing I can do. Thanks.
Anyone having problems with DVDs again? Started about half a dozen builds back and does not seem to be every disc but seems to be getting more frequent. Tried internal drive and external drive with same results. Debug log was with Going in Style rented from Netflix. Disk looks okay. I try going to the disc menu and it just hangs I have to physically eject the disc to get it to let me do anything. Last disc I remember having problems with was Your a good man Charlie Brown, also from Netflix. My copy of Voyage of the Dawn trader played fine.

Only when playing MPEG2 SD there are many artifacts on both platforms.
 You can disable mpeg2 for VAAPI. So then post a Debug Log / screenshot?     
Log: http://ix.io/12Aq

Looks more a "feature" of the AMD drivers with low quality mpeg streams than a bug. The artifacts are there with VPAU too, but less visible: https://imgur.com/a/2nBNO

 Yeah, sadly. bugs.freedesktop.org is then the next place.

@Milhouse  any ideas on this? It's constantly losing signal when I try to set the gui to 1920x1080_60. Even though I have my Denon AVR set to passthrough all video, I took that out of the loop and ran the hdmi straight to the tv and the signal is still dropping.

Here's a trace from dmesg - Dmesg log

Not particularly, I'm not an expert on anything and certainly not Intel video hardware. This kind of thing does seem to be more of an issue with Intel than say Nvidia or AMD, though, and the prevailing thought is that it is a kernel bug.
