Robert, wanted your opinion on this. Do you think this (or an equivalent model) will still be available from Panasonic at some point next year, probably closer to the end of the year than the beginning?

I think this will be my player of choice when I’m ready to upgrade but I don’t anticipate being able to do so for some time.

Josh, can't say for sure, but Panasonic did tell me they have no successor planned for 2020 so the UB820 and UB9000 continue on as the current series for 2020.

Very nice Paul, you will love this BD player. FYI, they are on sale for $399 and no tax, brand new.
So far loving it, watched The Thin Red Line (Criterion) last night and the image was beautiful on my meager 46” HDTV.

Next for me is a 75” 4K TV and soundbar/subwoofer setup, just waiting to see what the 2020 models have to offer.

Excellent Paul! Once you select the new 75" 4K HDR TV we'll help you get your UB820 properly configured for your new a/v system so you can take full advantage of the UB820's priority HDR Optimizer tone mapping and full color volume feature.

When you time permits check out HTF's thread on LG's new 2020 NANO TVs. Best price/performance TVs for 2020.

We're considering opening up the offer to other HTF members with various names. Stand by for our list of eligible names.

BTW, clarification on the UB820 bundled with Spears & Munsil's 10 bit test disc. The UB820 is on the lowest sale ever at $399.98, which includes double boxed shipping Nationwide. Retail is $499. If you name gets on the list or for those who pose as John you are welcome to add the disc to your UB820 order for our net cost, which is $25, retail on the disc is $39.99.

IIRC you mentioned about getting with your Panasonic contacts about making the auto shut off user selectable with a firmware update. Did anything happen with that?

Thanks.
