The bigger issue is content supporting it. Yeah sure for games it's supported, but if no one on the TV commerical provider side will support it, it really hurts the advancement. Games are the only things that are supporting it. Not much else is, it's going to take a long time. Which means prices are going to stay high for a long time too.

Honestly having seen HDR in the flesh I don't give 2 monkeys about it, 3440x1440 IPS 144Hz Freesync that has nice clean looks is on my dream wishlist though

Yeah, on 4K Blu-ray it is only supported on some titles. Then there is the whole HDR10 vs Dolby Vision thing.

It is also true that a TV can be advertised as HDR without actually supporting HDR10, which is a whole flustercluck. The standard needs time to mature, with higher quality panels becoming mainstream, a new HDMI hat supports full chroma at 60Hz 4K 10 or 12 bit and a range of HDR ready content.

You probably haven't seen a true HDR panel. Very very few they are

There needs to be one standard. Dolby needs to gtfo and stop slowing down technology. Adoption rates are so slow for this reason. Every company fights tooth and nail. There is a reason we have international standards for things. But still there's always that one company..

"We will need to wait for HDMI 2.1 or another future standard before we will get to play HDR content on at 4K with a full chroma colour sampling"

We all know that consumers would be better off without HDMI and just DP instead. But will it happen...

Monitor makers need to drop VGA (on the cheaper monitors) & DVI for a start and just keep HDMI and DP even tho i like DP way more for a computer.

I look at it as DP = computers & HDMI = TV's

Why on the cheaper monitors? Surely the whole point of a cheaper product is that its cheaper to use? From a business perspective, VGA is going to be around forever as everything supports it/can use it. You don't have all these multiple versions of it and you can convert any signal to output to it easily.

Get rid of it from more expensive screens/monitors though.
