HDR lookin more washed out than 90's jeans

My issue:

Was playing Re: Village and the hdr was initially looking absolutely beautiful with Ray tracing and other setting cranked as high as they could go. Then one day upon booting up my machine, I noticed some of the blacks on my desktop wallpaper were looking a bit washed out but thought nothing of it. Booted up Re: Village and noticed that literally all of the colors looked washed out most notably the dukes shop menu and the reds on the maps and could only fix this by turning hdr off which caused me to lose some depth. So took my journey over to YouTube and noticed the blacks here had almost a fuzzy sort of effect going on. I've tried toggling the settings in nvidia control panel and on my TV but to no avail so I'm really open to any suggestions and will post my build below:

 

Threadripper 3970x

EVGA RTX 3090 xc3 ultra

128 gb of 3200 Corsair vengeance pro

Aorus Trx40 pro mobo

1000 watt Thermaltake plus

TV is a Samsung 55in 4k series 6 UN50NU6900

HDR in Windows is buggy as hell. I've notice sometimes after logging in that the UI is way too dark. Disabling and then re-enabling HDR in the display settings fixes it. Maybe that's your issue.

The other thing I noticed is that it's only outputting 8bpc for some reason. Idk, I just feel like actual pc monitors also have an easier time with hdr

That may be all that's supported. That TV doesn't have wide gamut color, I don't think.

I have a Pentium Gold G6600 driving my 4K TV that has a cable card tuner (I have aGT 1030 GPU as the G6600 does not support 60 Hz refresh rates with HDMI).  I use this for streaming HBO, ESPN, etc with a current Win 10 install.  The HDR setting just does not work.  Everything is washed out.  It may be that something is not configured properly but I can't be bothered to trouble shoot things as keeping the setting off seems to give me a very good picture.
