Pretty much that,
If you have another device to test with to determine if its the display or not would help. TCL is the cheaper line of displays and may yield more issues than normal. Would suck if you moved to a new unit and had the same issue. An Android tv box with 9.0 or newer for about 50$ supports HDR content as a cheap testbed.

It works fine with a desktop RX 560.

10-series desktop cards can definitely do 4K 60Hz 4:4:4 8-bit HDR. Or 4:2:2 10-bit.

That's what everything I've read seems to say. I'm thinking it's the mobile aspect that's not playing nice in the sandbox,

https://www.reddit.com/r/bravia/comments/eocjnc That may shed a bit of light and be the answer,

"You can't just use the HDMI port on your laptop. Most people are probably not aware of the fact that the HDMI outputs on almost all laptops are limited. They are NOT HDMI 2.0/a/b-compatible. This is because even the best laptop graphics chips (such as nVidia RTX) are routed through the Intel integrated GPU, before they reach the HDMI port (this is necessary so that the HDMI port can optionally be driven by the integrated GPU instead of just the dedicated one). This design choice limits the HDMI port to the bandwidth of the Intel GPU."

Well, that explains it. If you have an intel based laptop, usb-c (need thunderbolt) or dp to hdmi is needed for 4k hdr.

As thunderbolt is optional on the Dell G3 3579, sswilson, don't lose more time if you don't have it on yours.
