The LG CX 77" is up on for a small fee of $8500... I don't remember the C9 77' ever being that expensive. Via Greentoe I got an offer for $3749 for the 77" C9 which is super tempting but I think im going to wait for the Rtings review of the CX first..

Having a device between the PS4 and TV could certainly introduce issues. Who knows how exact the metadata pass-through of the receiver is or if it messes with the signal otherwise. I also have a Denon receiver and set all my color ranges manually to make sure there are no issues. Im glad to see setting it manually worked for you!

I would suggest not trusting the automatic settings. Set the PS4 to full or limited to match what the TV is set to. If you don't want any issues and set and forget, then go with the limited/high setting. Note that in HDR the color range does not apply as its always limited (The signal going to the TV from the console is in YUV which is limited by default. color range only applies when sending an RGB signal)

While the 4K60 S+ has no replay buffer on-device, the 4K Capture Utility which it comes with does. We call it Flashback. It has a time range of 4 hours down to 5 minutes. It’s always recording in the background and you can scrub back and start the recording at any point that you choose.

You can adjust the bit rate - resolution and FPS of the recording is based on the input. If the input is 1080p60, the recording will Be 1080p60. If the input is 4K60 HDR the recording is in 4K60 HDR. The SD card contains a file called settings.txt which lets you configure the standalone settings such as Bitrate, recording format, and the audio source (Line-in, HDMI)

No exactly...the encoder on the device encodes the incoming HDMI video so it can be transmitted via USB 3.0 or sent to the SD card. If you’re streaming, you still need to re-encode the video once you’re added your camera, overlays and other audio sources.

Due to the onboard encoder the latency is around 200ms. For comparison, our devices without an encoder have a latency of around 70-100ms.

Thread HDR games analysed
Yes, of course. the Xbox’s bit depth setting of 8, 10 or 12bit only works in SDR mode and seemingly has no effect on HDR. if a game is running in HDR the Xbox is sending 10bit. edit: to add to this: the bit depth settings in SDRare known to break the picture. You should never choose anything above 8bit. I’m not even sure why Microsoft includes those options.
