Whats the best way to pass information along to Linus?

I watched Linus's video from a few weeks ago "How bad are these cheap HDR monitors?" and his testing methodology is really flawed.  He used the PMP version of Plex which does not support HDR.  So all of his Plex based HDR comparisons were in SDR....Plex does not support HDR AT ALL on PC.  It will display HDR videos, but they are tone mapped to SDR before they are displayed.  There is not a single version of Plex on PC that displays HDR.  Not the web version, not PMP, not the new PMP and not the windows store version.

 

Also, to note, even if you plug a pc into a regular HDR tv and see "HDR" tag light up on the tv, its not actually displaying HDR.  It is just first tone mapping, then sending a signal saying that the tone mapped video is HDR to the display.  Which is even worse than displaying straight SDR.

 

So TLDR, the entire time he thought he was reviewing HDR but he wasn't looking at HDR at all.  Except the Shadow of the Tomb Raider parts.

I think it's best to post that in the specific video forum thread: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1185010-how-bad-is-the-cheapest-hdr-monitor/

By the way, I see James is actually the writer for this video, so it could be that both don't know about this.
