Yesterday I played this movie (see spoiler) in a Sony KD-55AG9:

This smart TV supports H.265 video codec natively (see specifications: https://www.sony.co..../specifications).
Why Emby transcode it?

Hi.  Did you press the "i" button on that tile to find out why it was transcoding?

 

Also, I don't see many specifics in their support list (which is actually labeled as support from USB drive).  Specifically, I do not see 10-bit HEVC HDR listed which is  what you were trying to play.

"support from USB drive" means that this TV can play this movie directly from a USB stick. In fact, I copied the film in a USB stick and could play it directly on the TV.

EDIT

I played the movie back just now to see the "i" button information and it played it directly. I don't understand anything. 

If I play another movie with the same specifications, I'll see if it plays directly.
