the way to go is an external player .. forget about QNAPs HDMI port .. even more so for HDR

Oh wow really? Especially since the HS-453DX is actually dedicated for multimedia playback.
Is the HDMI 2.0 (4K @60Hz) too little for proper 4K/HDR playback?

it's a nas ..not a video player ..qnap just threw the hdmi in there because they could lure some customers that way (and it was cheap to add as igpu was already in most intel consumer chips)

Oh I see. But along with the lastest KODI 19 it should be quite capable in playback?

apparently (only based on posts here) new HDStation version make KODI playback stutter...so people are using older versions

And you can't open a ticket with QNAP because they have publicly said they do not support KODI (licensing issues) .. you see where that goes?

All mitigated with an external player.

Oh I see - this is very sad to hear and causing major problems for users who relied on KODI and QNAP - especially for the advertised multimedia NAS products

Did someone manage to solve the issue with lack of HDR recognition by TV when playing from KODI on QNAP. I have an LG OLED TV and the TV doesn't discover automatically that the material is HDR. Is there an option to HDR passthrough or something? I play videos from QNAP 453D 2.0 HDMI 4k capable device. I've tried different version of KODI from QNAP Club store: 18.5 and 19
