    A few words about...™ HDR and the new Panasonic 9000 -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Robert Zahn, is the 820 going to drop $100 at your store. It is available on other sites at $399 but not yours. I'd rather deal with Value Electronics, than all the rest. Thanks.

    There has to be a service menu that can be activated through a sequence of button codes or something. There is no way that "auto off" cannot be canceled. I'm not sure why the solution hasn't been exploited yet, but I know it is there somewhere.

    My only issue with this player, and it is a doozy is that a lot of my old DVD titles don’t have the time display info in either screen status, or on unit display window. I’m talking a ton of my TV on DVD titles. Just a blank lines in the on screen status, and “play” on the unit window itself...

    The "new toy" is a big part of it. So fun finding fiddling with features on a new player. The 9000 will be my last player for a looong time. I have three 4K players. that is quite enough. No more. I think.:unsure:

    It is sad that whenever I get a new player my older models just seem to sit unused. Since I got my 9000, I haven't touched my UB900, or my Oppo 205.

    Indeed. He has gone above, and beyond in answering questions for me, and his customer service is second to none. I am a lifelong customer now. I live in Michigan, and I love that there is no tax, or shipping charge.

    I saw that but Pioneer is now the same as Onkyo, so I'm staying away from it. Bad experiences.

    That sucks man. The player is great, but the complexities in the deep feature set can cause problematic "handshake" issues with other hardware. I had a few issues with the model before the 820, the UB900, but my 9000 is perfect....so far. Knock on wood.

    Weird! All the Studio Canal Region B titles I have tried worked perfectly. I thought the 820 was basically the same player as the 9000-minus the analog features. I just tried it on "Escape from New York", and The Fog. I get the message saying it won't play, hit stop, and then press "top...

    I'm surprised more people don't talk about this. It worked on my UB900, and now my 9000. It is fantastic. So far it has worked on every region "B" BD I have thrown at it, I have not tried any region locked DVD titles though.

    Yes, absolutely. But why bother? To me it is just much more simplified to have two HDMI to two direct sources audio, and video.

    Get the 820 if you can, it is a beautiful thing Tino. The HDR optimizer and options for video/audio are other worldly. I get lost sometimes fiddling with video settings. And the picture quality is better than anything on the market according to reviews--I think the video quality is better...

    The Dynamic Range Conversion is also fantastic if you don't like the "look" of the HDR presentation on a certain movie represented on a 4K display. I watched "The Unforgiven" a few weeks ago, and was very disappointed with the look of film in HDR (way too dark). without it the film looked...

    And trust me, "As soon as possible" being the key phrase here. They are pretty limited allotments anyway, but once the last batch of them sells, they are gone that is it.
