Anybody play with that HDR to SDR slider yet? I don't really know how it works other than it makes the image appear brighter or darker on my non-HDR Sony 65X900A.

I got mine today. It is connected to my 2013 Sony 65X900A, a non-HDR 4K TV.

Wow, I've been waiting for something that could replace my venerable yet wonderful S790.

The Best Buy preorder price is hard to believe, Sony is undercutting Panasonic by a lot here.

Has anyone connected a Samsung UBD-K8500 4K UHD Blu-ray player to their X900A? How well does it work with out TVs? I realize our TVs don't have HDR, but do they otherwise work fine with 4K UHD BD's?

Sigh. So it might be my TV, and it might be my player, and who knows what else. I should see if it auto lip-sync works using my FMP-X10, the chain would be almost the same with X10 -> X4200W -> X900A...
