Is there an iOS app that works with the player as a remote? My remote no longer works.

I can only find it used. What about this one?


It appears to do HDR10/UHD and 3D. I want to get a Sony X800M2 when I get a new TV that supports DV, but then I'd still want to keep the LG one with this TV. Will I use 3D again? Maybe not. Maybe once or twice. But if the LG player is decent at everything else (DVD, BD, UHD-BD) then why not?

Nope. The closest thing would be a Harmony remote. It has an iOS app that you can control things with.

I've personally not used it. But i do use a Harmony 750 which is just a universal remote and it works great.

Just about any Samsung BD remote will work. They're on ebay for pocket change.

BB carries the 420. If you get a Sony TV, that LG player will not support DV on a Sony display. If you want DV get the Sony or the Panasonic 820.

The Panasonic does *not* have DV, it has HD10 and HDR10+. That being said, it's cheaper than the LG, has Wi-Fi if for some reason I ever need it, and it supports HDR10 and HDR10+ so it's probably still the better buy. I am planning on keeping it with the Samsung TV. I am not looking to buy a Sony TV (even though they are very nice), just the Sony UHD BD player for a Vizio or TCL with HDR10/DV. The Panasonic is a nice looking player too, it's small and pretty square.

Correct. The 420 does not support DV. For a non DV display, like a Samsung, then it is probably the best player out there with its tone-mapping. The LG will work fine down the road with the Vizio or TCL. I brought up the 820 and Sony players because you said DV in the future. Trying to save you some heartbreak like others have found out when they tried to use the LG players with a Sony display.

Yeah, I figured, just didn't wanna have to wait to buy it etc. Thanks for the tip though. I went out and bought the Sony X700.

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.
