HDMI 2.1 firmware update

I have a new Hisense 58inch 4K HDR UHD Roku TV Series R6. I’m trying to prepare myself for next generation gaming PlayStation 5 and wanting to know will there be a firmware update for the HDMI 2.1?

Re: HDMI 2.1 firmware update

HDMI 2.x is a hardware specification, not a software one. It cannot be updated with software.

The R6 supports HDMI 2.0a

2.1 will support higher refresh rates, but since the TV cannot, updating the HDMI spec would be pointless.
