When considering cheaper TVs, you must keep HDR disabled on the console to not get problems, as long as you do that, gaming will be fine on the Philips.

HDR is a bit of problem nowadays with other sources, if you use the TV to watch HDR on Netflix for example with a premium plan, you won't be able to turn it off and you'll get issues with the picture. For streaming football and YouTube which is mainly SDR, it shouldn't be too much of a problem.

For a bedroom TV I'd go as cheap as you can whilst retaining a decent manufacturer. As long as it's Philips, Samsung, Sony, LG, TCL or Hisense you should be ok.

Thanks for the reply and advice I've been looking at this and a Samsung au9000. Think I will go with the Phillips tv.
