Your screenshot reminds me of a question I have as well. I was trying to figure out if the Philips can pass native resolution, so that I can test the upscaling of my AVR vs my TV. I have the Philips video setting at "auto" instead of 4K which I would expect means it is passing native resolution. However when I play a 1080P Bluray disc, I get the same onscreen info as posted here: Output 4K/24Hz/SDR. Am I missing something?
i think in your case, auto means automatically match the displays highest resolution. so when watching 1080p disc, it will output it to the highest resolution of your display either 4K or 1080p.
if you set the video to 1080p, then play a 1080p video, that is what the player will output. so if you want true 1080p, that's what you must output, manually. if you set it to auto, and you have a 4K tv, the player will output 4K. i just tested those settings on my player. my tv now says it's getting 1080p/24/SDR as i tested the 1080p disc and set the player video to 1080p not auto.
as for my issue with the 4K disc, i did try the other (disc 2) UHD disc of Castle Rock and got the same thing as shown in the included picture from the previous post.
as to the receiver showing ATMOS during the Warner Bros splash screen, it happened again and someone told me that the splash screen segment is mastered with ATMOS/Dolby TrueHD so it will play in ATMOS/Dolby TrueHD for the 2-3 seconds it's on. so, that answers that part.
someone in another forum told me that their Oppo 203 listed the disc as HDR10, while i'm sure it is an HDR10 disc, just interesting that for whatever reason or another Philips sees the disc as DV.
oh well, i was just curious if anyone else's philips player gave them the same info with this disc. again, the disc plays just fine, looks great (HDR10) and sounds just fine DTS-HD-MA. thanks for responding.
