    Going into the Dolby Vision menu on the OPPO and changing it from AUTO to TV Led fixed the problem.

    Why should forcing the TV to to the DV processing work? Doesn’t the Oppo handle DV?

    Yes, it does handle DV. Perhaps his TV doesn't do DV?

    If his TV isn't DV capable then the player and display should auto-negotiate HDR playback. However, I had a similar problem with 2001: A Space Odyssey on my 203. Contacted Oppo support and they gave me a beta firmware release that completely fixed the issue. My display, however, does support DV.

    Oh, so forcing the TV to handle DV gives it the option of ignoring it?

    I have an LG OLED. All other DV discs I have display DV just fine, as did the download from this set (via VUDU). Only the 3 4K discs mentioned (ASIB, and both 4K ANs) gave me a problem. I got the menu change tip on another thread, and have no idea why AUTO would turn everything crimson, but it's obviously an OPPO firmware problem.

    I'd never heard this commentary before for this section. The commentary really explains why FFC's preferred ending is actually more hopeful rather than almost nihilistic. I still wish this cut would be included to give the experience of how some of us experienced the movie forty years ago, but I respect his artistic choice to go in a more positive direction.

    Has anyone else experienced a glitch with the 4K iTunes version? I’m talking specifically about the 4K theatrical cut that is included as an extra on the Final Cut iTunes listing. The image freezes at 4 minutes 15 seconds and doesn’t recover until after the 9 minute mark. I got the same glitch on 2 separate Apple TV’s and on my iPhone. If you play back in HD it’s fine, but 4K playback does this.

    I have the same issue and the issue is even longer than you indicated during my playback of that 4K digital.
