Dolby don't get any money at all from discs sold. Their revenue comes from licensing their technology to hardware manufacturers.

The case of vinyl records is a good one, but it demonstrates the opposite of your intent ;) Vinyl is far, far more niche than Blu-ray, yet there is still a thriving, profitable market for it. So...

Have you assigned the front panel port in Input Assign, Jerry? IIRC on my 5200 the default was that it was unassigned for some reason.

And no HD Fury Integral needed? So the player is downrezzing the 4K to 1080p AND downconverting HDCP 2.2 to HDCP 1.4? Just for the avoidance of doubt. Thx.

Agreed. And at least the cross-codec upmixer issue has a simple and effective workaround. Not to mention I knew I’d have that issue even before I bought my 7010, so can’t complain there.
