Help with 4K (Best Quality)

Hey all, I have a question regarding getting the best picture quality out of movies, 4K to be exact.
Currently I use an AMD R9 280X, which I know doesnt output HDR, but does output 4k.
I have a Samsung Q6FN, which does 4K @ 60, 10bit HDR.
I would like to output my movies, which are on the drive to the TV but my video card doesnt do HDR.
So I end up using Plex on my Xbox One X to stream the movies to the TV, which gives me 4k HDR but it shows 24P as the signal.
Does this mean I'm losing quality or frames? Or both? Movies play fine and do look awesome but I do feel like it should probably look better.

Is this fine? Am I losing quality by letting the Xbox One X and Plex stream the movies? or should I invest in a 4k HDR gpu?
I was considering getting a RX 580 or something similar that outputs at 4K, HDR 4:4:4.
btw, I'm using a display port to HDMI 2.0 adapter.

Any help or suggestions would be awesome.
Thanks all

Dumb question but are you sure the movie wasn't a 24P movie?

What is 24p? You mean 24hz? As in 24fps? Movies are all 24 fps so if that's what 24p means then that would make sense.

oh I didnt know that. So the 4K HDR 60hz is referring to gaming, not movies right?
My signal resolution on the TV while playing a 4K HDR 10 bit file, shows 4K UHD/HDR 24P.
So I'm assuming this is correct and the movie is playing at the best quality etc with 10bit?
I don't know what 24P is, I just thought it was 24hz, but the movie plays fine, no stutter so it cant be 24hz.

Thanks

Yeah 24P would mean 24fps. It's playing fine.

If you have The Hobbit it should show 48P, think that's the only one not in 24fps

24p means 24 Hz progressive (as opposed to interlaced), it is 24 Hz but since the movie is also 24 fps (probably 23.976 fps actually) there is no stutter. Your TV's OSD does not tell you the bit depth so it could be either.

You are losing potential quality compared to using madVR with a new GPU but you are not losing quality by using 24p, in fact 24p is better than 60p for movies; you always want to use the same refresh rate as the movie's frame rate. When using madVR on a PC it would be better to switch to 24p too, in fact madVR has a feature to switch the display to the same refresh rate as the source.

How would I know if its playing with 10bit 4:4:4 though? I wouldnt? I know on PC it would show it under display settings. I should look into that madvr.
