That’s a shame was hoping dv would be auto. Looks pretty much like the x800 with the 700 dv toggle. The only issue I have with my panny 820 is with dv on everything is dv but all else is auto
Sorry my error this happens only on netflicks on the 820 but evidently on everything on the Sony m2 just as the X700’s. I love the panny but wanted a good backup still might go for one of the Sony’s.Are you saying that the 820 will output DV even for 4K titles that are HDR only? Mine sure didn't work that way.

I have the 820,the 9000 just more than I need but a great unit.I was initially going to go with a Sony 4K UHD blu-ray player but will go with the Panasonic UB9000 instead. Am also thinking of doing the same thing and pick up a Sony as a back up player. Maybe even use the Sony in my bedroom system.
Now available from bb. Not only is there no auto Dolby vision but very limited streaming apps just Netflix,amazon prime,and you tube. There are six reviews mentioning this. Everything else about this player they like. All considered I might pickup one as a backup.
There is a new firmware update for the Sony X-800:
Thank you. I just found this. My Sony locks up every once in a while. I hope the firmware update will solve the problem. I had never done an update like this, but the instructions were easy to follow (using flashdrive) and the update installed perfectly. Time will tell if the update will solve the lock-up problem. Previously when this happened, I unplugged the player, then plugged in again and that solved the problem. But it almost always happened when I had company and wanted to show off a disk.
I ended up going with the Panasonic 820 instead as a Dolby Vision upgrade to my original Sony X800. I couldn't get past Sony's decision for manually switching DV on/off, plus the reported lockups (my X800 occasionally does that). I bought it on sale for $450 from Value Electronics, with free shipping and no sales tax. With your $400 in Best Buy credits, the Panny wouldn't cost you very much for a better designed player.I had $400 of Best Buy gift cards to use, so I upgraded my UHD BluRay player to the Sony
UBP-X800M2. I hope it’s a good player that will hold up (it was $300 at the Lexington Hamburg store).
I still have my original Sony X800 in my main home theater. It doesn't get used much, as I use my Panny 820 for pretty much all movie discs. The Sony currently has a Rockford Files BD loaded, but I haven't been watching that series for awhile.Anyone still using the player this topic is originally for?
I am, but will be getting a 4K tv soon and will need to get aplayer that also has DV.
