I'll def have to try some of these! Will any of these allow auto switching to/from Dolby Vision? The FireTV 4k stick was delivered set to all DV all the time, but was able to be changed to only engage DV for DV content.

In general I'm disappointed in the lack of access to the native Android TV settings - so many of them show up on the Stream, but are grayed out in the menu :-( Guess I'm spoiled by my Shield TV, which is almost pure native Android TV...
i remember having to return my first FireTV 4k stick since it wasn't close to ready for prime time. But a couple months later they had fixed many things. Now I own three of the Fire Tv 4K sticks. I hope TiVo doesn't take that long because the price is a promotion. And will go up to $70. With the FireTv Stick 4K I actually paid less when I bought them a few months later.

I'm starting to think the same thing. I just got my TS4Ks today finally. After hooking one up and it detecting my Dolby Vision capable display, it shows that it's on, but when I compare it to my AppleTV forced to Dolby Vision it's not even close to the quality I get with that. It doesn't even look like what it's supposed to being converted to DV. It looks like a horrible rendition of SDR. No wonder you guys don't like it being forced on. With the AppleTV it's a completely different story.
My two ATV 4K boxes look just as bad with forced DV or HDR10. Plus it's still way too bright.
I don't like any device using forced HDR. i was so glad when apple fixed their forced HDr issue. I then bought a second one. But with all my other streaming devices, my ATV 4K boxes are my least used streamers. But then I'm not an Apple person anyway. But some things have only been in HDR or Atmos on the ATv 4K. Which is the reason I first purchased one.

I can turn off Dolby Vision but the setting doesn't stick. Any way to make sure that it does?
I've not run into this. When I set it for Always on HDR10, it stays at that setting. And when I set it for Always on DV , that stays too. Of course there should never be always on HDR, but that was a borked decision TiVo made.

But their worst decision is the HDMI-CEC issue. I am able to avoid it because I have other devices that have settings I can turn off. But your average person has absolutely no clue about HDMI_CEC.
