I'll take the contrarian position on this one and say that I prefer HDR10 to Dolby Vision on my Sony OLED. I find the Dolby image a little too dim for my taste. I'm also using a Panasonic player, so maybe I just prefer the way it tone maps the image over Dolby.I haven’t seen either myself, just drinking the Kool-Aid and assuming DV does look better than HDR10 when both are done correctly.

So I guess your desired purchase price was much lower than what I thought it would be in your first post. I know you didn't want to spend a $1000 on a player, but I thought the Panasonic player was your best choice in that regard.I appreciate everyone’s input, but I am leaning towards just getting by with 4K streams and hoping Sony and/or Microsoft sort out DV on UHD Blu-ray by the time I’m ready to buy one of those systems, which probably won’t happen until holiday 2022. I have seen an LG player at Walmart at a steep discount for only ~$125 that has DV. I am sort of temped to just get that one to get me by, but reviews of its reliability aren’t great, and why piss away $125?
Oh, no problem, I have just decided, as excited as I am to get such a nice new TV, I’ll hold off on my want of DV UHD playback, and roll the dice on whether one of the game consoles implements it. If they do, great! No extra expenditure. If they don’t, then I buy what I have to buy at that point, which will probably be the Panasonic.I should have paid closer attention to your post about always having a gaming console.
Looking back at my initial post, I didn’t make it real clear. My complaint was since PS5 didn’t have DV, and was so hard to buy anyway, what is the best player to get right now to watch DV UHD discs. But you are right, I didn’t make it clear in that first post that I would still wind up with a PS5 eventually. Hell, if Xbox Series X winds up being the console that does DV UHD playback, I may skip the Panasonic and have 2 consoles. I’d be willing to spend the bit extra and have an entire gaming system as well as DV UHD playback. $500 PS5 + $500 Series X > than $500 PS5 + $350-$450 Panasonic that only plays movies (for me at least). Ideally, PS5 will be able to do everything I want. I have a PC, so anything coming to Xbox I can just play there. Crap, now I’m thinking why not save a bit of $ and just do the PS5 and Panasonic if PS5 never does DV, because I do have a way to play any Xbox games, play them on my PC. Ah decisions decisions! LOLI should have paid closer attention to your post about always having a gaming console.
Is that just DV in games? Or UHD disc playback as well? Timed exclusive? Or for the life of this generation of systems? Do you have a link for that?Microsoft has exclusive rights to Dolby Vision on current generation gaming consoles, specifically the current iteration on XBOX. That is why you won't find DV on a PS5.
