OSMC announced new Vero4k, opinions?

So we are planning to switch when necessary and only if supported; as we have now decoupled colourspace and HDR since the March update (which was a limitation on AML before). 

MVC playback now works in TB or SBS. So users will get that at the least. 
We have added an option for full output, but doesn't seem to work on all displays with our testing.

 Yes - it's definitely important to be able to play SDR Rec 2020 content in Rec 2020, and not assume all Rec 2020 content is HDR10 and flag it as such.  (This will also help when playing HLG Rec 2020 HDR stuff if the S905X can't flag HLG over HDMI.  Outputting it as SDR and then manually switching your TV from SDR to HLG HDR will solve that problem, but it won't if the Rec 2020 is output flagged as Rec 709, or crudely converted to Rec 709). In other words, output the two different colour gamut formats as-is, or convert non-compatible sources if the display can't handle that colour gamut?

When it comes to bit-depth - presumably you need to have an automatic mode that choses the best based on EDID - and some manual over-rides? 

Because of the confusion inherent in the HDMI 2.0 specs (2160p 4:2:2 being 12-bit only, 4:2:0 and 4:4:4 offering 8-bit, 10-bit, 12-bit and 16-bit at different frame rates) it may be sensible to annotate the options. I can imagine lots of people thinking that selecting 4:2:2 12 bit output is 'wrong' for 10-bit content, but it is the only 4:2:2 bit-depth supported.  It may also be worth having options for <30p UHD and >30p UHD? (Or at least listing them?)
