Amazon Prime has two feeds of Bosch and otter titles. Be sure you're accessing the 4K UHD feed and not the 1080p HD feed.

I will also concur that my LG 65EF9500 does a better job upscaling to 4K than the Samsung. A few days ago I switched the resolution to Auto and I noticed the improvement in PQ. It's not dramatic, but...

I did some further experimenting with the K8500 and my Lg EF9500. I also seem to get a better picture when the LG does the final upscaling. However, I have the K8500 resolution set to Auto.

I disagree. I had the Oppo 103 and I think think the Samsung does a better job with 1080p blurays. My .02.

Agreed. I'm not sure what UHD color does for Samsung TVs, but as far as I'm can see, UHD does nothing for the UHD discs. Also, the UHD deep color setting on my LG doesn't work well with the Samsung....

I own both. With my eyes, using an LG 65EF9500 I believe the Samsung does a better job with processing 4K and rendering color than the Oppo 103 does upconverting 1080p to 4K. On a 65" screen it is...
