Plex doesn't have a whole lot of settings available for DLNA. It's either off or on. The one thing that I believe is necessary is to restart the server after enabling DLNA so that it will show -something-.

I'd like to better understand what "shared folders" are being referred to.

New X8000 owner here with a few questions. I've done a search on the forum but can't find exactly what I'm looking for. Pairing the player with a Sony HT-NT5 and Hisense 65H8C with 4k HDR 10. I want the Sony to upscale so I set the output resolution to 4k. Looks good so far. Do I set the deep color to on or off? It's set to on now and looks pretty good. Hacksaw Ridge did show up as HDR. The audio is what is more confusing to me. The NT5 decodes just about everything except atmos. Do I set to auto or PCM? What about BD mix and the other settings? Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

Good point. Plex calls the content folders the "Library."

Deep Color needs to be set to On with the X800.
I know with UHD SDR content, it will fail the 10 bit test screens if Deep Color is set to off.

The You Tube app always uses 60 hz refresh rate, and I need to reduce that rate to 24 hz. Is there a way to limit the apps' refresh rate to 24 hz?

Nothing is what I want - a true Zen saying.

For example, if you are remixing audio from the player into the stream, then your final output would not be the original bitstream... but in that case Atmos wouldn't work.

Yes, I am using bitstream to my denon 7200wa atmos setup, and yes the sound quality (better described as detail I think) improvement was easily noticed on the first disc through it. I am no engineer so I have no idea why its better (but my guess is its just passing a cleaner bitstream signal or whatever to the receiver). To describe the sound detail improvement is easy though, bird chirps in the back ground, creaks in the floor (that type of thing) that were not even heard at all playing the same disc through the Samsung are now audible coming through the surround and height speakers. I didn't know what I was missing because I didn't know those sound details were there until replaying the same discs on the Sony.

Directly though the UBP-X800, I suspect it is not possible. But you can use your AVR to force a 24Hz. You won't like the heavy jitters, though.

Personally, I am not too knowledgeable on this topic, but if your display device is a multiple of 60Hz panel, which I believe it is, you are better off keeping the 60hz native. The North American displays do a rigorous 3:2 pull down to convert 24 hz movies to 30 bit and then multiply to reach 60 or 120 hz. A feed like YouTube, which is 60 hz native, when converted to 24 Hz, and then reconverted to 60 Hz for the display compatibility does not usually yield good results.

I wish my problem was that simple.

Yes, I have audio out selected on HDMI 2. No luck on getting audio from HDMI 2 while using discs. Only get audio using the internal apps. Need to do some more testing to figure out if I can narrow down the no audio problem to something specific. I am using certified Monoprice cables, but might try switching out the cables in the remote chance that is the issue.

It depends on which AVR you are talking about...

The problem is with the Epson 5040, which is what I now own. It has a hardware limitation which limits the HDMI input to 10.7 g/b/s - it should be 18 g/b/s... As a result, when I watch You Tube, which defaults to 60 hz, I lose HDR due to the need for a higher bandwidth HDMI input on the 5040. I could get HDR, but only if You Tube were limited to 24 hz (maybe 30 hz, I don't know). So I have 2 choices:

1. Watch You Tube videos at 60 hz SDR
or
2. Watch You Tube videos at 24 hz HDR

but I can't have both 60 hz and HDR at the same time. The 60 hz SDR looks fantastic, but I just wanted to compare it to 24 hz HDR to see which is the better compromise, and I was hoping that the X800 could be locked at 24 hz.

Nothing is what I want - a true Zen saying.

Player powers up when I do not want it too.....,

Sony 800 replaces a Pioneer blue ray player. Using my Directv remote it powers up Pioneer vsx lx101 receiver with 4k pass thru, 2016 0led tv, & Directv receiver. What it also powers up is the Sony 800 and changes the input on the av receiver which I do not want to happen. What is the best fix for this? Thanks.

Perhaps the Sony has better jitter reduction for HDMI along with an improved signal to noise ratio than your old player was capable of? Bitstream is bitstream and theoretically it should sound similar but not all players take full advantage of the HDMI signal. Usually when a difference is immediately noticed it sometimes due to a louder signal due to gain settings. My guess is the new unit has a lower distortion threshold and allows a quieter signal to pass thru than previously.

I have the 5040ub and x800 as well. Before getting the x800, I had Samsung k8500 for a month or so. It allowed 24Hz HDR you tube. So I don't know why the Sony doesn't.

Was wondering if anyone had some ideas for me here... I have the x800 going straight into my Vizio P65-C1. UHD looks fantastic, but regular blu-rays and Plex 1080p however does not to me. I think it has something to do with the upscaling, but the difference between how the x800 looks vs my PS4 Pro is pretty stark. Especially in camera movement, it just seems like more compressed or a slight film washes over the screen. Everything just looks more pixelated and strange compared to the smoothness my PS4 cranks out. But I don't have a 4K receiver, and like the uncompressed audio of the x800. Oh, and I tried turning the 4k upscaling off on the x800, vs everything set to Auto, but don't notice any difference in the problem. Any suggestions?

What if you already have a 2016 LG OLED already set to deep color?

Sony 800 Powers Up When I Do Not Want It Too......,

Set up: LG 2016 OLED, Pioneer vsx lx 101, Directv HR44 & new Sony x800.


Replaced Pioneer blu ray with the new X800. When system is powered up after the input was on cab/sat it turns on the 800 player & changes input to BD. Is there a setting on the 800 that I can change to keep it from powering up automatically? Thanks.

There is no DV update promised for the X800. Pretty sure that Oppo and LG are your options right now, and the LG hasn't received the update as of yet.

I picked up the Sony last Friday. It's a fabulous player. Built like a tank, and a stellar performer. I got a deal on it that I couldn't pass up, but the lack of DV has me contemplating an exchange for the LG even if the user reviews on that device have been less than glowing.

Disagree here totally. DD+ is a big upgrade from DD mostly because DD is such low quality.

Same problem with the X800 I just got. Tried splitting audio out of the second hdmi port but no dice. My 5 year old Panasonic plays DD+ from Netflix!

Any help would be much appreciated!

Make sure you go through all the settings. I am using hdmi 2 for audio and hdmi 1 for video.

I know how you feel nothing really wrong with my 8500 its just something. But id hate not to have dv so ill keep it for now and try the lg ill kick myself if sony down the road adds it. Even the pricey panny does not have it.

I thought you were having trouble with any audio from hdmi 2. The x800 does not support dd+ from Netflix right now. So no way to fix it.

I am thinking of picking up a X800 too. Does anyone know if the X800 will play Video Cds (VCD)? I am keeping my old Oppo around just for the vcd playback. I have read online that the X800 does play some vcd?. I went to a local Best buy to try a couple out, but thy don't have it on display for some reason. I am also considering the Sony because it does Netlfix and Amazon in 24fps (which is needed for my Epson projector to display HDR..)


Thanks!

Spoiler!

Replaced Pioneer blu ray with the new X800. When system is powered up after the input was on cab/sat it turns on the 800 player & changes input to BD. Is there a setting on the 800 that I can change to keep it from powering up automatically? Thanks.
Anyone?

Settings, System, HDMI, HDMI Control off.

The downloadable manual suggests (p. 24) that it's for use with Bravia (Sony) TV,s but it's more general than that.
