Every Oppo Blu-ray player (-83, -93, -103) has played MKV files, including HD audio tracks.

FWIW, I had some time so I brought up the Roku 4 from the basement (7.5.0 Build 4099). Plex is transcoding everything that's HD audio (TrueHD or DTS-MA) to Dolby Digital (AC3) on the Roku 4.

It does seem odd. Unfortunately local playback has never really seemed a priority for Roku, IMHO.

It's been a while since I ditched the Sony 550 but I'm fairly confident this is correct.

Yes.

(FWIW, I have 7.5 on my older Roku 4 but Roku specifically mentioned that the HDR units would be the last to receive 7.5 on the rollout.)

I'm seeing the same update here. FWIW, the Roku is auto selecting 4K HDR @ 60 with my particular configuration.

The downside: it appears that the Amazon app is now sending everything @ 60...

If it's not the cable then its something else in your chain (display, receiver, switch, etc).

I would start with swapping the HDMI cable. It's the easiest fix, and IMHO the most likely suspect.

FWIW, I had some similar HDCP 2.2 errors with my P65 and a Roku Ultra that went away when I...

I tried it. Briefly.

In an very unscientific test (my eyes) our 4K TV does a better job of de-interlacing and scaling.

YMMV.

Ditto.


Also note that ".mp4" is a container (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MPEG-4_Part_14) and the codecs used for the actual video and audio tracks stored within can vary.

Probably best to ask this question on the Roku thread but I can confirm Amazon and Netflix with a P65 and Roku Ultra. Have not tried Youtube.

Yup.

In my case with the Ultra the exact cause of my problem was a brand new "18Gbps" cable that really wasn't. Once replaced all is well.
