I have the 940C and do get Netflix to display in HDR and output in DD, but have never tried the Amazon app. Is this a known limitation of the Amazon app that is included with the 940C?

Thanks.

Well, after a week of ownership with flawless performance, my UB900 decided to freak out.

I turned it on in the same fashion as the previous 6 days, but after it loaded a UHD disc, a message came...

I have the Sony 940C and have not seen any problems with the pciture quality of this player. The only problem / quirk is that my Denon has no bit depth information for the signal when it is playing.

Yes, you may be on to something here. While the actual picture seems good, I wonder what else is causing that confusion in the chain.

Well, the problem with that test is that the Sony TV does not seem to display the pixel depth. It only shows the resolution (and goes into HDR picture mode when HDR is sent).

I had this problem when I had the resolution set to 2160p. When I switched the resolution setting on the k8500 to auto, the problem went away.

Was one of the 1004 issues a loss of picture when using the 2160p setting for the resolution and going through an AVR? I had that problem and had to switch the resolution setting to "Auto".

Sorry for the confusion. I was using the UBD-K8500 with the VW-500/600ES. What I swapped out was the projector for a UHD TV. The Samsung player remained the same.

Hello.

Does anyone know of a way to get this player to output the high resolution audio from .m2ts files on a drive connected thru the USB port? All I get is lossy audio.

Thanks.

Hello,

What do you guys make of the Info page on my AVR that shows the incoming video signal from the K8500 is 12-bit color depth and BT.2020? Should it be 10-bit instead?

Thanks

Yes, it was the HDCP warning and that movie (unlike the Fox UHD titles) did NOT play in 2160p. The TV proudly displayed that the resolution was 1080p. :(

I had the same problem with the Last Witchhunter UHD disc from Lionsgate. I'm using an X7200WA with the DTS:X and HDR update. So, the update is not what is needed here apparently.
