    Hi folks,

    I'm in the process of purchasing a new TV. Obviously it will have 4k and HDR and I'd like to continue using my current Ambilight-setup for Full-HD. I guess it's the default setup: some HDMI-splitter, a HDMI-to-analoge converter, a analoge-to-USB grabber and that then feeds the Raspi. See image here: http://powerpi.de/wp-content/upload...ss_ambilight_hdmi_externe_quellen_powerpi.jpg

    From what I get of the forum, I need to make sure the HDMI-to-analoge converter gets a FullHD SDR image. Hence the downscaling resolution-wise as well as HDR-to-SDR.

    Is there any good hardware (available in Germany) that you can recommend?

    While researching myself, I stumbled across this nifty piece of hardware: FeinTech VSP01202 HDMI 2.0 Splitter 1x2 mit 4K HDR Down-Scaler
    https://www.amazon.de/FeinTech-VSP01202-Splitter-Down-Scaler-Audio-EDID-Schwarz/dp/B07K5RKQB7/
    It should be available soon and solve the problem of down-scaling and converting to SDR. What do you think?

    Cheers :)

    I do not see HDR to SDR conversion mentioned anywhere.

    Hm... good catch.

    To be clear: HDR is not just a feature for 4k, but it is also possible to send 1080p in HDR?
