I suspect it won't be much different. The grain is attributed to the film stock used. Unless they DNR it all to hell it will be most likely be very similar.

Thanks Ray for the update. I'm super-stoked to check out the Universal releases for myself. I'll grab them after work. Now if only all my stuff wasn't packed in storage at the moment... I hate...

Yeah, I actually just unplugged the Samsung and used the same HDMI for the One S just to verify it wasn't a settings issue in the TV. The difference is most notable with reds. As an example, in the...

Just got my One S hooked up last night and popped in a UHD BD and wow are the colors hot and blown out. I stuck the same disc in my Samsung player to make sure I wasn't crazy and the difference is...

Has Pioneer released the HDMI 2.0a firmware for the SC-95? While HDMI 2.0 should have zero issue with 10-bit color, it could be a handshake problem from the 2.0a -> 2.0 -> 2.0a chain.

I originally wasn't going to respond to this, but just have to say it. The PS4 or a regular blu-ray player being UHD capable is completely irrelevant to the discussion. The fact is, the Xbox One...

The logic that few people have it so therefore let's not support it does not hold much water in this case. The device should support bitstreaming of HD audio codecs. Period. A $40 blu-ray player...

That's a pretty BS excuse. IMO if they are advertising UHD BD playback then they should have followed through completely because they are clearly targeting a market segment that has a much more...

I think you missed the point. They are in UHD on VUDU. Looks like Universal is also on board.

Doesn't the Shield output 4K all the time when set to that resolution regardless of source content? It just scales everything accordingly or so I thought.

Do we have actual confirmation of that for the One S? I know that the current Xbox One can't, but maybe Microsoft will rectify that with the updated console.

Yeah, I had a hard time swallowing the $8k for the 940C last year. I love the TV though. I am sure the ZD9 will be fantastic, but I'm in too deep with a 940C and 930C in my house. Divorce...

Sorry Ralph, but I don't think there is enough HDR and Atmos in the world to compel me to sit through the film again. Glad to hear it is reference quality though. Thanks for the review.
