Thanks for info. I got the same set. Q950R but with box model 2003RS. Got it swapped. Do you know what the difference is? Two support engineers on two different occasions told me it supports HDMI 2.1 on port 1. As they claim that this model has been fully HDMI 2.1 certified, shouldn't it be able to support all it's features if so? For example, 8k@60hz being one of them.
Unfortunately, I do not what the difference is, sorry. But I actually have another 55 TV set from 2019 with 1005R, so I'm going to extract the EDID and see the difference.
Also, I was wrong about the 2020 model, Vincent from HDTVTest confirms that even the 8K 2020 flagship model Q950TS supports 40Gbps only (10Gbps per lane), but apparently DSC is supported at 6Gbps per lane = 24Gbps https://imgur.com/a/2Orgsv6

Hey Christian, thank you so much for doing this EDID bump. Your efforts are really appreciated ! If this VESA DSC 1.2 or DSC is not fixed in the One Connect Box, might it be fixed by an external device through any of the different ports ?
Thanks. Not sure if DSC can be fixed by another device. I tried to use the 3DClub DisplayPort 1.4 to HDMI 2.1 and I could not even get 4K @ 120Hz 8-bit 4:2:0 working properly (that's about 16Gbps, so that's not even the full HDMI 2.0b bandwidth). I believe the adapter is entirely DSC-driven (so it compress DP to HDMI), so TV must be able to decompress it.
I'll post the EDID results for my 55 8K 2019 model later.

Not sure if someone is still figuring out if the 2019 Model supports HDMI. I did a EDID dump and here are my findings, I currently have the QLED82Q900RB (82" 2019) model:
One Connect Box (Original): SOC1007R TV Firmware model: 1361 It looks like the 2019 model indeed supports HDMI 2.1 but only with 40Gbps bandwidth. This pretty much matches what the official manual specifies.
Here are the EDID findings: TAG=3, Length=10, OUI=D85DC4 Version=1 SCDC Present=Yes, RR Capable=No, CCBPI=No LTE 340M Scramble=No, Dual View=No, Independent View=No, 3D OSD Disparity=No DC 48bit 420=No, DC 36bit 420=No, DC 30bit 420=Yes Mdelta=No, Cinema VRR=No, CNMVRR=No, FVA=No, ALLM=Yes, FAPA Start Location=No DSC_1p2=No, DSC_Native_420=No DSC_All_bpp=No, DSC_16bpc=No, DSC_12bpc=No, DSC_10bpc=No Max TMDS Character Rate = 600 MHz Max Variable Refresh Rate = 120 Hz Min Variable Refresh Rate = 48 Hz Max FRL Rate = 5 3 & 6 Gbps on (0,1,2), 6, 8 & 10 Gbps on (0,1,2,3) per lane DSC Max Slices = 0 VESA DSC 1.2a is not supported DSC Max FRL Slices = 0 no support for Compressed Video Transport DSC Total Chunk kBytes = 0
Based on FRL speeds, it supports 10 Gbps on 0,1,2,3 lanes, that means 40Gbps total (10Gbps per lane x 4), that's the same bandwidth for 2020 LG models for example.
Unfortunately it does not support VESA DSC 1.2. So in order to play 8K content using HDMI 2.1, TV is limited to 7680x4320 @ 60Hz 8-bit 4:2:0 which is 32.768Gbps, so without DSC, TV can't go higher.
This matches what the 2019 manual says: https://imgur.com/a/Q7X7Aq5 Here are the screenshots using the EDID binary reader (in case you're curious): https://imgur.com/H2T1ZEG
Based on the manual seems that the 2020 models higher than the Q700T support the HDMI 2.1 bandwidth (48Gbps) and they seem to support DSC as well, allowing 8K (7680x4320) @ 60Hz 10-bit RGB/YCbCr 4:4:4. https://imgur.com/a/EwhJJ95
I uploaded the full EDID dump and the report if anyone if curious: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1LnROgRc0GvIBf-uutcRqDQKxuLusSicE
Not sure if the 40Gbps limit and DSC can be fixed in a One Box Connect revision later in the future. I'll ask Samsung
TLDR: Based on my findings, 2019 supports HDMI 2.1 but with limited Bandwidth (40Gbps only).
