This set does very good HDR, especially on Ultra Blu-ray Discs and Amazon Prime video from the app if you have service. No, you can't turn HDR off and I don't know why you would.

The only way to get the BD Wise to work is to connect the JU7100 directly to the main output of the K8500.

I meant upconvert. But sometimes I think the JU7100 up converts better on some Blu-ray Discs so I manually change the setting if the player is not on BD wise

Yes, I do. I have tried it both ways. Lately I use the K8500 to uncover the 1080p output from Blu-ray Discs setting it to 2160p so I don't forget to keep it that way for playing 4K discs. The BD Wise...

Yes I've used this player with my JU7100 successfully. I've tried it with and without the 2 HDMI hookups and BD Wise. It works quite well. Its apps come out with DD+ for audio, too.

That EXTRA is another Samsung "exclusive", it should go away, I've always had that pop up even before the "update". As far as HDR goes, the update was last year. If you mean an update for the Amazon...

If it's NOT Samsung's fault, only Netflix, what does it have against the Samsung UHD Blu-ray player? This ridiculous and it's obvious Netflix is ignoring us owners.

Thanks, I stand corrected.
But still, Netflix says they will offer 100-150 HOURS of 4K in HDR? Maybe they tried and can't, some marketing, indeed.:rolleyes:

I guess Netflix doesn't need my 4K subscription then, or I'll just cancel them altogether if there's no HDR10 for their app on this player by August.:(

Agreed, my JU7100 receives 1080p for Blu-rays and does an excellent job of up-converting to 4K by the TV itself, not the player.

In order to do that, my UBD-K8500 UHD Blu-ray player is connected...
