Other monitors will require an injector to make the monitor do the "auto switching" correctly.
Steve and Jerry, I took your advice and ditched the LG TV for an Eizo monitor. I bought the CG319X model which lets me manually select HLG mode.

I don't yet have Edius 9 so am still using Resolve for HDR, with my IP4K connected directly to the Eizo it looks excellent.

Grading completed I export using the GV QT HQX codec which includes the HLG information as seen here, using MediaInfo...

Format : Canopus HQX
Codec ID : CHQX
Duration : 3 min 0 s
Bit rate mode : Variable
Bit rate : 333 Mb/s
Width : 3 840 pixels
Height : 2 160 pixels
Display aspect ratio : 16:9
Frame rate mode : Constant
Frame rate : 25.000 FPS
Scan type : Progressive
Bits/(Pixel*Frame) : 1.605
Stream size : 7.01 GiB (100%)
Language : English
Color primaries : BT.2020
Transfer characteristics : HLG
Matrix coefficients : BT.2020 non-constant

This is accepted by Handbrake from which I make HEVC x265 files. Put on a USB drive they play nicely on my 55" LG OLED in the lounge. Oh and it also shows the HDR HLG logo. I am now wondering if Edius 9 in HDR mode would accept these GV QT HQX files and recognise the HDR data? Maybe someone could test?
