The ghosting and banding can only be noticed when the TV is in "white out" mode

Or when there is an outdoor scene with clouds and the camera pans. You know? Like in every single movie in the world.

I've been watching Game of Thrones on Blu-Ray and any scene where there is snow (of which there are many) the bars are so noticeable that I just want to turn it off.

Quite frankly, I want my tax money back. I would gladly return the set. 4K is a joke (there's just no bandwidth to stream 4K and there are no 4K players). Netflix 4K won't even work on this TV because it doesn't support the codec. So stupid.

thanks for the info everyone. Another bullet dodged.  It looks like Panasonic is a different company now.

OK, I just purchased the Samsung BD-F7500/ZA 4K Upscaling Blu-ray Player to pair with this Panasonic 4K TV. I am using a high speed HDMI cable and plugging it into HDMI 4 on the Panasonic. I have tried two different 2D 1080p Blu-Rays and the I can't get the TV to display it in 4K.

Do any of ya'll have a 1080p to 4K upscaling Blu-Ray player hooked up to this TV? If so, is it displaying a 4K image (even if upscaled)? If so, when you press the "Info" button on your panasonic remote, does it display "4K" or "1080p/24"?

Samsung "technical support" in India blames it on the Panasonic TV (anything to get me off of the phone). Panasonic is blaming it on the Samsung Blu-Ray player (of course).

I would appreciate confirmation that 4K can be sent to this TV using the HDMI 4 port.

Thanks!

Has anybody been able to hook up a 4K source device to this TV's HDMI port (HDMI #4 ) and able to display 4K content?

Is this thread dead? I have now received SEVERAL responses that the Samsung BD-F7500 has absolutely no problem up converting 1080p24fps to 4K (UHD). It's the WT600 that isn't compatible with this 4K source.

Why the #@$!% would Panasonic sell a "4K TV" that won't accept 4K sources and won't play 4K Netflix content? My dislike for this TV continues to grow. What a waste of technology and outright LIE from the company selling this product!

Wow, very surprising considering this was supposed to be the only set in 2013 that shipped with HDMI 2.0 out of the box and seemed so future proof. I guess in this industry there is no such thing a future proof. I wonder why it won't accept the 2160p24 signal from your BD player, you don't even need HDMI 2.0 for that. As for Netflix, I'm sure there will be more devices soon that will be capable of 4K netflix, but if it can't accept a standard 4K24p input you may be SOL. You sure the Sammy isn't doing something weird where it's only compatible with Samsung TV's? That seems very odd to me...

4k content

I am new to this thread. I purchased my WT600 from Best Buy on March 9th, 2014 for $3499.99 brand new. I am bummed that the Netflix will not play since it doesnt have the HEVC codec. I am wondering how to get more 4K content besides just the Panasonic 4K youtube channel. Has anyone tried one of the new panasonic blu-rays that upscale (bdt460 or bdt330)? I just read that someone tried the samsung 7500 and it did not show 2160P when pressing info. Also, has anyone tried the Nuvola NP-1?

Thanks,
Bejoy

I think I am going to return the Samsung 7500 and get the Panasonic 4K upconverting player. I will report back my findings.

I have reached out to Nuvola to find out if we are able to use the NP-1 ($299 streaming box) to get 4K Netflix with our 2013 Panasonic WT600. It seems that will PROBABLY will be able to, just not yet. Here is the response from NUVOLA, along with answers to some of my questions:

The NP-1 has HEVC, however, we are waiting for Netflix to update their Android app to support 4K. The NP-1 works with any 4K TV.>>Is there other 4k content to view on the NP-1 without paying monthly fees?


Some UltraFlix content is free, some is pay.



>>I am already paying monthly fees for Netflix, so i was hoping to stream 4k on netflix with the NP-1…any idea on eTA >>on the netflix update for the android app?

Netflix only has two shows in 4K. We haven’t got an ETA from them yet.




>>What else is viewable on the np-1 in 4k? I think it said ultraflix on the website, but doesn't that require a monthly >>fee? (if so, how much is it?)

UltraFlix does not require a monthly fee, the content is split between PPV and free.

Exclamation Nuvola np-1

Please let me know your experience with the Panasonic 4k upscaling blu-ray players (BDT 360, BDT 460). I am waiting to hear back, and also I am considering getting the Nuvola NP-1 box as well. I just posted my responses from the company. Does anyone with the WT600 tried using the Nuvola NP-1? If so, please let me know the feedback, before I spend $300 on the unit, dont know if it is worth it!!

Bejoy (WT600 owner since 3-9-2014- bought for $4000, at Best BUy, they price matched for $3499.99, but I also purchaed the 5 year warranty, installation, wall mounting, delivery, and professional calibration, so out the door cost was over $5000 in March 2014 for a 2013 tv retailing at $5999. I am just looking for 4k content (the only current content is youtube Panasonic channel since WT600 does NOT have H265 or HEVC for the 4k Netflix streaming!!) I would hate to think it was a waste of $5000!!! Today, the $7000 SONY is on sale for $2399 for the 65 inch. Back in March when I bought the WT600 at $3499, the SONY was $3999 since it was the 2013 model with no Netflix support. Today, it is $2399 brand new for 65 inch , model is 900A SONY. I still like the specs of my WT600, I just wish I had 4K content!!

Thanks!

4K!!!

I bought two TC-L65WT600s for $5399 at Best Buy when they first came out last year. A few months later they dropped the price by $1000 and would not even make up the difference for me. I got screwed. But it was all worth it because I would soon enough be watching 4K content on my brand new UHD TVs with HDMI 2.0 inputs. Futureproof I thought. WRONG. Still no 4K content and Netflix is not compatible with the TC-L65WT600 as of now. I have been feeling like Panasonic really s**t the bed and screwed over their customers with this product, marketing something as future proof when in fact it was obsolete to begin with. The only good news I have is that I just chatted with a rep at Netflix who was very optimistic and helpful and here is what she said:

Hey there! I just did some digging on this one from my end. I'm seeing here where your television is not quite yet supported as we have just recently launched out on supporting 4K streaming. Netflix is always expanding to support popular devices so I wouldn't be surprised to see yours added to the list of 4K TVs that are currently supported by Netflix. You can also to see the current models that support streaming. What I am going to do for you is that I am going to send this information over to my guys stating that you'd like to see your device become one that is certified Netflix compatible, sound good? I can understand the anxiety I will ensure that I send this information across to our Engineers for you as I have all the faith in the world that my guys will take drastic steps in making this possible.

Sorry to give you more bad news, but they are just telling you what you want to hear. They told me the same thing when they first launched 4K. It ain't gonna happen.

Has anyone tested if this TV will do 1080p@120Hz? Since it supports active 3d I would think this might be the case? Not sure if anyone has tested it though. This appears to be one of the few TV's that can actually do 60Hz with 4:4:4 chroma.
