You're not alone. I had a decent Sony TV (the Sony 940D) and the Panasonic UB900, when I foolishly decided to "go for DV". So, after only 8 MONTHS of owning the 940D I bought a shiny 940E due to the "wonderful" X1 Extreme processor that would solve all my problems, allow me to see DV, and bring world peace. A couple of months later (December 2017) I got the Oppo 203, since it was capable of DV already.
So, now I have spent all this money on new equipment and still have NO DV, still have problems, and no world peace
. I'm throwing my vote for the blame on Dolby. They could have told Sony to pound sand and get the standard DV profile to work on their "wonderful" X1 Extreme processor. But, I'm sure some shady deals took place and now we have this mess, involving player manufacturers that were left out of the meetings.
Can't wait to see what the next mess will be.....perhaps HDR10+
