Trying to save you some heartbreak like others have found out when they tried to use the LG players with a Sony display.
I'm happy with the UB420, I spent several hours last night removing excess cabling from my setup, I tested my Roku through my AVR yet again, and it still won't do 2160p60 HDR through the Denon X3400H, I adjusted levels for different inputs on the Denon, as HDMI, Optical (from Roku) and Spotify were all different levels, added another Ethernet switch so that I could hardwire everything, and did a few other improvements. I haven't had a chance to watch anything more than a couple minutes of Sicario on the UB420, but so far so good.
When I get a new TCL or Vizio TV, I am planning on getting the Sony X800M2 and keeping the UB420 with the Samsung TV, so that both TVs have an optical disc player. I was looking at the LG player for this TV, not the future new TV. I'd probably move most movie watching to the new TV, but I'd like to be able to handle any type of disc (UHD BD, BD, DVD) on the secondary TV as well.
One night this week I'm going to watch a movie or two to see how the UB420 is. Either that or one of the BBC documentary series that I have on disc.
