In the windows display options,although i havent checked if it works like i said with HDR but i do use it to keep both my TV and monitor hooked to my GPU but display only on my monitor and unplug it when i want to use my TV.

Soon as I unplug the monitor, the TV can do HDR 4K @ 60hz.

Game looks BEAUTIFUL, however, my RTX2080 can only produce about 45-50fps even with DLSS which is kinda sad.

It's playable though, and doesn't distract me too much. Was worth the wait
It's not surprising,if you are using extended mode. You can save yourself the hassle of unplugging the monitor by choosing to display only in the TV when you want to use HDR.

Yeah, i've read that long HDMI cables limit the bandwidth of the signal.
I'll confirm my findings tonight. Find it hard to believe adding 3ft to a cable to not allow it HDR. 4K works fine without it, kinda strange.

Interesting, I'm not having issues running a non-HDR monitor alongside HDR TV, extended mode, the TV works in HDR just fine.
Had a 25ft + wall coupler + 3ft cable. Directly plugged it into the 25ft and it works. Cable is kinda tight which was why I got the 3ft cable. Going to do more testing. Wouldn't load HDR next time I turned it on. Ended up shortening my HDMI cable so I think it's a length related issue?

HDR is so beautiful. I'm also playing on ultra with 4K textures.

For whatever reason even 40-50fps feels SUPER choppy and slow. Once I hit that cap it's butter smooth. Will playing at 30hz 30fps feel smoother than 30fps at 60hz?

I'll try and see if 30hz works with HDR then. If it does, that would be a clue that the cable is indeed too long and can't properly get the signal.
I run FFXV capped at 30fps because that's all I can really do. I know when I set my tv to 30Hz, it looks like a slide show, but when I play FFXV with the fps locked at 30 and the tv at 60 Hz, it looks fine to me. That's how it runs on consoles. Doesn't hurt to see if it looks smoother with other settings though.

Did you enable the full color setting for the hdmi ports? If you did, then it could be the cable.
