    Unless you can get it really cheap, I'd suggest waiting for updated v2 of the X800 instead. The X80 seems to be same as x800, which is missing Dolby Vision support, but is otherwise a solid player -- probably better than X700, except for the missing DV support.

    Ok that’s what the Javs profile is doing too. This just makes it built in. Thanks

    Correct. The UB820 still has the 4 modes it had initially.
    Besides the metadata display (see pic further down from another forum), the latest firmware also added System Gamma Adjustment (pic from value electronics website).

    Yup!!! Thanks!!!
    Now I can put my worrying mind down when i'm going to bring back the Aussie set back from my trip!!!
    It's been not easy to source a region hacked set that can play all region DVDs... not to mention, players with remote control that let user to directly access top menu of regular FHD BDs...

    So my wife bought me the 820 for my birthday. Woo Hoo:)

    Question.

    It has two hdmi outs. One goes to receiver and one directly into my OLED input right?

    Or should I hook it up thru the receiver.?

    If your receiver passes 4K *and* Dolby Vision, passing it through is no problem.

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

    For me, it's because I have four HDMI source devices. It's much cleaner to run them all through my receiver and have a single HDMI cable going to the display. Works like a charm.

    Don't think my Yamaha does Dolby Vision unfortunately. Doesn’t matter which Input on my OLED I assume.

    It doesn't, but make sure you have the Deep Color setting enabled for the input you'll be using on the TV. I believe it's turned off by default.

    That is how I make my connections as having two HDMI outputs are essential to me for any player purchase.

    From the UB820 manual (page 31) -

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    To enjoy BD-Video that supports Dolby Atmos or DTS:X

    - Dolby Audio: Bitstream
    - DTS/DTS-HD: Bitstream
    - BD-Video Secondary Audio: Off

    Do you have Atmos speakers connected to your receiver or do you have a 5.1 setup? Atmos will decode to its TrueHD core if Atmos speakers are not present.
