And you picked up an extra post!
Seriously, I think 50% of the problems with this player are cable related, and the other 50% are settings related. Obviously, there have been a few hardware failures--but nothing like some of the other UHD players. Overall, this player is pretty solid.

Later today, I will be connecting a new UB900 to my Vizio M75-C1 4K TV and new Pioneer SC-LX801 receiver. My original plan was to connect the UB900's main HDMI output to the receiver and then the receiver to HDMI port #5 on the Vizio TV. Port #5 on the Vizio is [email protected] 4:2:2. However, I think I've read that non 4K playback should go through a different port. The Vizio's HDMI ports 1 & 2 are [email protected] (not sure if they are also 4:2:2).

I purchased the receiver specifically to get a 4K compatible model. But now I'm thinking that I should run an HDMI cable directly from the UB900 to the Vizio's HDMI #5 ([email protected] 4:2:2) and run a second cable from the UB900 to the receiver.

I'm sure the answers are in this very long thread. I've done a bit of searching and can't find it immediately. If someone could throw me a bone, it would be appreciated...

Will my new Pioneer SC-LX801 do all of the necessary upscaling/conversion so that I can run EVERYTHING through the receiver and then to HDMI #5 ([email protected] 4:2:2) on the Vizio? I'll also have three standard HD sources (HD DVD player, Mac mini home theater PC, and Channel Master OTA DVR) connected to the receiver. Will all of that play okay through the receiver to HDMI #5 on the TV?

It would be better for me if I can put ALL sources through the receiver. On movie nights in the Booth Bijou Garage Theater, I used the same equipment. I simply connect the HDMI output of the A/V receiver to the projector in the garage. If I have to run a separate HDMI cable from the UB900 then it will defeat my ability to easily switch sources in the garage.

If running HD DVD, Mac mini, and Channel Master DVR through the receiver to the [email protected] port on the TV is a bad idea, then now much 4K Blu-ray quality will I lose if I simply use one of the TV's [email protected] ports?

Man, this stuff is very confusing!

You only get (1) video signal out of the UB900, so you should go to the AVR and let it scale as necessary...especially if you're going to be using the second output for a PJ. The caveat here is:
  • I don't know the scaling capabilities of your AVR
  • I don't know the limitations of the other TV ports
Theoretically, the HDMI signal chain/ports should handshake to the maximum capabilities of the link; alternatively, you could always "force" the AVR to scale to a certain resolution (I know my can...but my TV is UHD compatible on all ports).

audio dropping out on random movies

Hopefully someone can help point me in the right direction in correcting this annoying problem - I am only assuming it is the Panasonic player and not the TV? A couple Blu-ray movies - Rogue One and Zargoz come to mind immediately have had the audio drop out. Going back to the spot where it dropped and resuming sometimes corrects the issue, sometime I have to "rewind" more than once to get the audio to work. Then no other drop outs in the movie. My setup is simple Panasonic DMP-UB900 and an LG OLED65B6P. HDMI 4K capable cable interconnect. Both pieces have most recent firmware. Bad disks? Something else? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

No issues on the Australian release, though they likely all come out of the same plant. Maybe just a bad disc.

Panny and DTS 7.1

Panny connected with HDMI WireLogic cables to Dennon 7200WA to Sammy 85 inch 7100. Latest firmware everywhere. Having a problem - I do not see Panny outputting 7.1 only 5.1 on Arrival 4K and some other blu-rays. I think it is the issue of handshake between Panny and Denon. Interstellar stops on chapter where main character arrive to his daughters' Principal office in the school. I went to BestBuy and played my disc in their Panny (with much older firmware) - same hiccup. Anybody see something similar ?

Are you seeing 7.1 on any disc? Have you made sure of your audio settings in panny and Denon are set properly to receive 7.1?

Could you be more specific? 10-bit HDR support is a bit vague.

There was an option many asked for a long time : the possibility to display UHD movies in 10 bits instead of 12 bits. This is supposed to help those who have color banding.

I notice the Auto(10bit Priority) option and with explanation between both


this is very smart in my opinion as I know the oppo was having banding issues on auto and because of the chroma upsampling. this pana option still gives an auto option but can allow pegging to 12 or 10 bit which his native for UHD

Panasonic DMP-UB900 thread.

I wonder if this will also help with playing Billy Lynn's Long halftime walk at 60p 10 bit for those that have lesser cables that crap out at 12 bit like I think mine is doing to my JVC RS600.

I say that because the exact same set up was used when I had my Sony VW675 in place of the JVC and I had no issues at all. I think that was due to the 10 bit EDID limit on 60p rates on the Sony, so the ub900 never tried sending 12 bit.

Just loaded new Firmware 1.73. BINGO! All sound modes work correctly 7.1 Dolby True HD, DTS Master, ATMOS. Kudos to Panny for "being on top of things"! As a perk 12 bit and 10 bit processing. I still see a bit of "sky banding" in 10 bit mode as my Sammy is a 8 bit panel. I guess I can live with it - it is not too bad! Thanks everybody who tried to help!

Glad they fixed a few issues it seems (none of which I had) - still no Vudu though, for any that are interested in that.

I'm looking at this player and I'm wondering if any of you guys have ever used the SD card reader for playing 4K files from a 4K camera. That would be a great bonus for me as none of the other UHD BluRay players have this ability. But the fact that it has a card reader doesn't guarantee that it will play 4K files well.

How does the new HDR brightness adjustment look in the new firmware update? Wondering if it will help with dim looking HDR on my Epson 5040ub projector. Could someone with a projector post a video of how that new function looks on a dark UHD disc like Revenant or Batman V. Superman?

CURRENT SETUP:
Sony X940E / Denon AVR-S730h /
NVIDIA SHIELD TV 2017 / PANASONIC UB820 UHD PLAYER / MAudio BX8a front mains / Klipsch R‑15PM rear left/right / Emotiva C1 center / Polk Audio OWM3 height left/right.

The HDR adjustment is great! I tried it on the only UHD movie that was really too dim for me: Star Trek Beyond. I put it half way to max (+6) and it looks great; now I can change back-and-forth between "standard" and "Set 1" if I have a "dark" disc. I also changed the video output mode to 10 bit (instead of 12 bit) and checked the only movie I saw any banding on (The Martian) and it looks great.
This player rocks! It's nice to see a flagship player treated like a...flagship player.

Silly questions, with the new option should I now set it to 10 bit? Does 4K movies look better in 10 bit? With the new update...can someone please explain the best setting to maximize a great picture? I have a 5040UB Epson projector.
