Samsung TV only has 1 2.0 port that supports HDR?

Hello, I recently purchased a Samsung JS7000 55" TV, and after tinkering with the settings and a call to customer support later, I learned that only one port on the TV supports High Dynamic Range. I'd like to have both my media PC and my Xbox One S running at 4k@60hz while outputting YCbCr/RGB 4:4:4 on that one port. So far, the only thing that I've found that gets anywhere near to my request is a Blackbird 4k Pro HDMI Switch, but it only outputs YCbCr/RGB 4:4:4 at 30, or YCbCr 4:2:2 at 60. Does the 4:4:4 compared to 4:2:2 really make all that much of a difference? And is there anywhere that I can find something that outputs 4k@60 on 4:4:4? I need 2 inputs and 1 output for my setup. It'd be nice if I didn't have to splurge $300 on a receiver for that. Here's the link to the Blackbird.

its the way they keep costs down on TV's. with 4K and HDR tech out now this is just another way. i had to replace a tv a few weeks ago and ended up with a 49" 4KTV from LG just to get a TV with 3 HDMI ports and a component. it cost me $699.00CAD and all 3 HDMI ports support HDR

if you decide to buy a dirt cheap 4KTV then do not be surprised when you find things like this

Thanks for your reply, though the assumption is not appreciated. The TV I purchased does not sell for anywhere under $1000, and that is American currency.

As for HDR, this TV does support it. It was a firmware update rolled out that allows the HDR feature. I didnt realize the Xbox didnt support 444, but please dont reply to a thread if your response doesnt have a possible solution.
