No, I don't have the blu-ray, and I have JS9000, not JS9500. In your comparison, I suppose you must have somehow controlled for the HDR setting change of Backlight and Contrast?

I just tried switching to "RGB Enhanced" with rather odd results. On my JS9000 TV I have HDMI Black Level set to "Auto" -- I left it there for now. Playing my UHD disk, with the change to "RGB...

This is similar to my experience. I have only one HDR disc, so far (The Martian), and two HDR movies on USB drive (Exodus, Maze Runner), and they look very good, but all the goodness seems to come...

I also have a VSX-90 with input on HDMI BD from the K8500 main HDMI output, and the VSX-90 output from its second HDMI output to my JS9000's HDMI 4 input. That is to say, the player's second (audio)...

Pretty sure. It's a Pioneer VSX-90, and early last fall I installed an update which the notes on Pioneer's website said was for HDMI 2.0a (and other purposes).

There is some wrong information in...

I don't have a theory. I asked for the reasoning behind yours. What if the Samsung guy confirms that the HU sets are 8 bit? What will you do then?

Perhaps you're confusing color gamut with bit depth? Higher bit depth should increase the size of a LUT for remapping color gamut. What does that have to do with dithering to reduce bit depth?

I don't see why you think an 8 bit panel can't do 12 bits. If an 8 bit panel can display a 10 bit signal by dithering 2 bits, why can't an 8 bit panel display a 12 bit signal by dithering 4 bits? ...

I don't see what all this research on part descriptions proves. An 8-bit panel could be mistakenly described as 10-bit by a parts supplier, and even if that very panel can be used in a 10-bit TV...

It's the sound. Going through the TV means going through a bottleneck that doesn't allow anything better than DD 5.1 to pass. If the UHD player is connected directly to your AVR, you should be able...

Respectively (imho): the preferred setting is high; yes it gets more aggressive; high is best despite artifacts.

I would never grind through all the possibilities. It's not the effort -- it's inelegant. But, say, this has been an issue for me, so thanks for all the discussion. I'm going to use the "no input"...

I suppose it depends on what you mean by a "5.1 setup". If that means you've set up your AVR to play a 5.1 source only through the usual 5.1 speakers, then of course that's what will happen -- but...

Neither of these things is true. Dependent on other settings, the DSU will play both DD 5.1 and DD 2.0 through all your speakers.

I've used several previous models of Pioneer AVR, but not the one you mention. Currently, I have a VSX-90 ($700) hooked up to a JS9000, and I'm also expecting a VSX-1130 ($400) to arrive in a couple...
