I wonder if it's just some incompatibility involving Dolby Vision.

I seem to recall there was some such issue at least between LG displays and Sony players a while back when it came to Dolby Vision, but hadn't heard anything about that for Vizio displays.

The Fire stick probably doesn't do Dolby Vision at all, right? OR maybe you haven't streamed anything w/ DV perhaps?

I would try playing some 4K discs w/out Dolby Vision (both discs don't use DV and then also discs that have DV, but w/ the player's DV disabled) to test that out...

The Fire Stick should play Dolby Vision but I doubt I've watched anything on it that takes advantage.

Note you might actually need to turn off the player's DV setting even for non-DV discs. I forget about the X700 now, but some Sony players (at least w/ older firmware) need to have it turned off manually to not generate fake DV for non-DV 4K discs.
