    Sony Introduces Exciting new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Where I think DV makes more sense is the HDR is worked on each frame independently, instead of saying the movie has a high nit of X, and a low nit of Y, and applying that to the entire movie in a static form.

    If you don't need Dolby Vision, the X800 is great.

    Sony Introduces Exciting new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    I can live without the HDR on Amazon for now, I just dont think the Roku Premier + PQ is as good as the Sony. Plus all the other bugs I have with it.

    Sony Introduces Exciting new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Sometimes the apps also jump when they make a resolution bitrate change, Amazon does that sometimes. I ended up with using the Sony player for everything, its the best all around player IMO if you use Netflix, Amazon and discs. Plus the 800 is cheap. I gave up on the Roku...

    Sony Introduces Exciting new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Been happy with the X800, especially the streaming of Amazon and Netflix. Streaming PQ is good and the 24hz works well (many devices only stream 60hz). I am going to move the X800 to another room when I get the 1000ES in.

    Sony Introduces Exciting new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Yeah, Sony said they would eval the demand and the market. Sounds like BS speak to me, more like we can enable it and may later in the year... DV is not high on my list right now, because the E6 does not have cal control for DV. My HDR10 mode is calibrated, so that may be the mode to stick with...

    Sony Introduces Exciting new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Well, after some time with the 800, and the new LG UHD player coming from Value Electronics, I sold my Panny 900. Nothing wrong with the Panny at all, its just the 800 works fine too and I made a good price on the sell :) So far the 800 has shown to be snappy in menus and apps, the 24hz UHD...

    Sony Introduces Exciting new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    I got my two freebies in yesterday (Shallows and Underworld). I bought Labyrinth UHD on release and enjoyed it. Some of the fx show their age, but it still looks great. I streamed 3 hours of content from Amazon last night (1080p) and PQ is very good. Real happy with the device streaming...

    Sony Introduces Exciting new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Watched several hours of Amazon 1080p and UHD today, PQ is great. Watching an episode of Luke Cage in HDR right now, also looks good and I def like that the apps put out 24hz. Going to try out Inferno UHD tonight.

    Sony Introduces Exciting new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Checked out Amazon UHD with the new FW, it works well and is 2160p/24hz output. Still wonder why Sony is one of the few that gives you 24hz on Netflix and Amazon. At this point it is basically on par app wise for me with the Panny 900, just offers 24hz instead. If the Blu-ray playback keeps up...

    Sony Introduces Exciting new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    I chose Underworld because I love that movie and did not grab it in UHD. I also when with the Shallows for eye candy, and since I have not seen it. If anything, grab two with high resale values on ebay and sell them ;) Update of FW today seems to have activated Amazon UHD, but not HDR yet. I...

    Sony Introduces Exciting new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Is there any type of video processing the Pioneer is doing, or scaling, that you could turn off as a test? I just wonder if something in the Elite settings is messing with the handshake. I may have missed, but maybe a full reset and hard boot could help with the Sony. My Marantz AV7702II was...

    Sony Introduces Exciting new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Thats all I can think. I have not seen anyone else report to having handshake issues yet with the audio port. If new cables dont change the situation, Id swap it for another one.

    Sony Introduces Exciting new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Im at a loss there since he said he tried all the configurations in the sony menu for the dual hdmi ports. That was my first guess, I find it odd that it would be a bad cable, but anything is possible I guess. If the receiver is not even showing getting an audio signal, I wonder if the player...

    I just got back from vacation and my movie code came in yesterday, but Sonys site is jacked up. Code i 12 digits and the site only allows 10 digits LOL. Also not update still for Amazon that I have seen.

    Sony Introduces Exciting new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    LOL. I ain't shy! Im looking for streaming apps, if they don't have Netflix and Amazon in HDR, Ill return it and keep my Panny 900. It's been bullet proof so far other than not having Amazon HDR.

    Sony Introduces Exciting new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player

    Looks like you will be able to get TWO free UHD movies with this from Sony, so makes a $299 price even better.

    800 is up for preorder on Bbuy with a 2/23 release. I have it preordered now, as well as the new LG UHD player with Dolby Vision from Value Electronics, which should ship end of month. I generally try several players every year, trying to find one that plays back reliably and offers HDR from...
