Silly me sold the Mac mini in 2011, before moving to Thailand. :bonk: Made no sense, as it could have easily fit to my bag. Brains were busy with other things... I have not used a Mac since then, I use Ubuntu for working and everything else, except when booting to Win 10 to play some games or doing large translation jobs that have to be done using MSWord, which I then rent for a month.

Used different Linux versions for 11 years at work, and have grown to like the idea. The desktop Linux for home users however is not still yet here. I can manage the quirks with the 11 years of experience of Googling help, though.

Edit: What about the one source I posted? It has this:

Great post. Only minor clarification — HDMI 2.0 can do 4:4:4 with HDR (10/12 bit) as long as it’s 4K 24/30fps.

It’s only with 4K 60fps that you have to choose between 8 bit + 4:4:4 or 10/12 bit + 4:2:2 (with the latter being the correct choice for most content as you’ve explained well).


Edit 2: Seems the source I used about RU8000 being a 8 bits + FRC TV was wrong, as Samsung itself advertises 'Dynamic Crystal Colour masters your image using 10-bit processing to help you see extra detail':


Model being 10 bit confirmed:


Edit 3: So put in shortly, I upgraded Sony 8 bits + FRC TV to Samsung 10 bit TV. Hence the colour support requirements became more stringent. And my Onkyo receiver lists only 4:2:0 in 10 bit mode. In addition the poster above says, that HMDI 2.0 supports only 4K 60fps 4:4:4 at 8 bit. Not sure why she/he claims 10/12 bit + 4:2:2, since Onkyo gives the values RGB/YCbCr4:4:4 (8 bit), YCbCr4:2:2 (12 bit), YCbCr4:2:0 (8/10/12 bit), which I assume should represent the HDMI 2.0 specs.
