I have my UBP-X800 set to output 1080P......to a PRO 111FD through a Marantz 7004. Since I did the X800 update to 0238 last month, everything seems to work correctly....except I cannot seem to get a good HDMI handshake from the Marantz Zone 2 output that is sent off to a Yamaha RX A1030.
It is no real problem as I only do this connection to be able to check the Dial norm values on UHD / Blu ray discs. Zone 2 works fine using a BDP - S790 player through the Yamaha to the 111FD and I get a solid lock if I route the X800 directly to the Yamaha bypassing the Marantz, it is just the Marantz Zone 2 output does not seem to lock in. It is not cable related as the same cables are just joined with a coupler to bypass the Marantz. I have seen reports of handshake problems for some people since the update, so something strange must have been changed with this update. Maybe the next update will get it back to normal.
This comment is just to add extra info if anyone else is having strange problems with the 0238 update.......
