Default What features would you like to see in an HDMI 2.1 TV

Thread title says it all, but Ill go first:
1. More full bandwidth HDMI ports and one extra port that is used for eARC. 4 ports is no longer enough for those of us with a cable box, streaming stick (when the TV itself is inadequate), 4K player and multiple game consoles.

2. Consider adopting the box model that Samsung uses and you as a consumer have options in terms of band width, number of HDMI ports and allows for a limited TV upgrade path.

3. Offer a limited edition gaming enhanced TV that has all the features of the normal TV, but also offer a display port input. This could have a downside in that it could lead to normal TVs getting their game features stripped out.

Those are a few of my suggestions.

All I care about right now is bringing back 3D capability- it's ridiculous that it was completely dropped just because not EVERYONE bought into it- now those of us who did are faced with having movies we won't be able to watch on future displays!

Aside from that, more adjustable and customizable user settings, assuming they don't make the CORRECT settings the default for once. And don't sacrifice picture quality just to make the unit thinner! As long as it's slimmer than my old CRT, I'm fine!

Auto calibration using an external optical device. Like every AVR has for self calibration...

3D is now exclusive to projectors. To play your 3D titles either a ceiling mounted projector or a short throw table top projector is needed.

That’s what I’ll be getting for my next display, assuming they don’t drop that capability! Passive glasses on my LCD are great though, and seems it’s impossible to do that with a home projector.

Getting a 4k 3d projector is the best item I've ever purchased. And building my home theater the best investment. I've been on holidays the coast 2.5 weeks, and I've watched 65 movies so far. And my to watch and rewatch list keeps getting bigger... It is insane.

I can't say 3D was what crossed my mind, but I want to make sure there is a clear distinction between 48Gbps full bandwidth HDMI 2.1 as opposed to some features being adopted and being labelled as HDMI 2.1

That's a big deal if you ask me.
