Thanks for your prompts responses.
If only life was so simple eh! As I mentioned in my earlier post I have mine hooked up using method 2
with HDMI 1 Video going to my TV and and HDMI 2 Audio going to my vintage Marantz Receiver (which is not HDCP 2.2 or 4K compliant) so you can rule that one out. You're probably glad you didn't bet on it now, ha, ha!
I have included my Wiring Diagram below and in an effort to add some additional input to assist you I have also included my Sound settings which are slightly different than
's but could pretty much be described as standard settings like his and many guys have copied my settings on this thread over the course of time.
But here is where it got interesting. Although I thought I was on Firmware 1014, when I went to take a picture of the Software Update screen I realized that I was still on 1013
so I thought "Should I update or shouldn't I ?". Always being willing to take one for the team I bit the bullet and went for it. I am pleased to report that after updating to FW 1014 and running my series of tests I am still able to output DTS Master Audio, Dolby True HD, Dolby Digital Plus, and whatever other audio formats I have tried just like the other day. Whew!
Since this issue seems to be only affecting a very small population of this thread (you and
) it might be useful to know what receiver he is using and how he has his wired up. Also, for what it's worth, if you guys haven't done so already, you might want to post on the thread applicable to your respective Receivers to see if you can find any other owners of the UBD-K8500 who are NOT exhibiting the same issues like yourselves.
It would be nice if one of you had a friend with an UBD-K8500 that wasn't experiencing any issues so you could plug yours into his system and see what gives. Then if he had issues with your
UBD-K8500 we could pretty much sum up that it is a faulty player as opposed to anything else in the chain.
Good luck and keep us posted.
