Then I closed the tray and it resumed where I left off and sound a picture were back in sync. The rest of the movie played without any issue.

Has anyone seen phenomena such as this with the X800?
The exact same thing happened this evening watching The DaVinci Code!! I just paused playback and then hit play and things synced back up. So far it hasn't reoccurred.

You're spouting nonsense. Nobody knows. However...

"Sony UBP-X800 4K UHD Blu-ray player :: Dolby Vision (confirmed - today)

(this information may not widely be known)


today (yesterday it was not so) :: Sony rep confirmed forthcoming support for Dolby vision

he confirmed the following:
- 1 - this player has the required hardware chip to support Dolby Vision
- 2 - it does not support Dolby Vision (out of the box)
- 3 - it will (as LG - Philips - Oppo) support Dolby Vision via a later (eventual)
firmware update (when exactly is unknown)
- 4 - licensing agreements are now worked out
- 5 - Dolby Vision supported televisions are as already known (X930E - X940E - Z9D)
- 6 - the remarkable X900E does not have neither the required hardware chip or processor power to support Dolby Vision, seemingly impossible, so it will not

needless to say, i immediately purchased and will have it in a few days (nice day today - indeed)

i was both expecting & hoping this would eventually be announced, as i would not purchase without Dolby Vision

my purchase was immediate (literally seconds) once that i was informed and subsequently (real time) confirmed via the Sony rep (seemingly, there is no possibility of error in this regard, as he was contacted several times as i waited for further confirmation that there was no misunderstanding)"

Why did you surround your post text in quotation marks? Are you passing along information second-hand?

If the above info is accurate and DV is coming to the X800/X1000ES, then all these 4K players need now is HDR Strip ---> WCG 2020. How can this be omitted when Sony has such an extensive projector line?

Most projectors benefit from this feature unless one has a small screen. Even my 5000es benefits from it when using an Oppo 203. Strange. Only explanation... hopefully it's in the works.

I've had the purple screen, it saying no disc inserted, not opening, or powering off issues. That and still no 4k for Netflix SMH.

Yikes, i hope it works out for this poster on bluray dot com. These "Sony Reps" seem very informed indeed ;-)

To the guy having better luck with his TV than his pj, suggest an ISF calibration for your projector. Not cheap (~$300 for 2k and ~$400 for HDR) but totally worth it.

For all having issues/glitches, suggest confirming your cables are "premium certified." Just "premium," or just "certified" doesn't get it. Monoprice and Bluejeans are recommended. It really does make a difference.

...fwiw

The chances this gets DV, according to what Sony has said so far, = the chances it won't at this point.

Not sure why anyone thinks they are more right.

I wouldn't necessarily discount this scenario. I, myself, have 'a guy' on the inside who gives me info on a specific TV line within Sony that is Spot-On. My source has even, on occasion, provided non-mass-released 'fixes' for firmware.


Just because you don't have a reliable source, doesn't mean that others don't. I think aaronwt could back me on this...


Of course, it could just be fake news...

Why don't you all independently verify by contacting Sony support (and/or your internal contacts) and discuss what you hear in this thread, as this info seems recent? At the least Sony will be hearing loud and clear on the demand for DV from existing customers.

I've been waiting for the weekend to watch Fantastic Beasts as well! Probably watch it tomorrow night. How are you enjoying Panet Earth 2? I initially saw it through the Amazon video app and this 4K blu ray is just next level stuff. The colors are so beautiful and the images very crisp, it's a very enjoyable experience.

Since connecting my X800 directly to my XBR65X850C for video and my STR-DN860 for audio using Certified Premium HDMI cables from Monoprice, I've had no issues. Well I take that back. I watched the 1080P version of The Martian (FOX) and got that weird macro blocking glitch mentioned above. Other than that, everything is great.

I also bought a Logitech Harmony 650. Programming was incredibly easy. Now when I want to watch a movie, my TV switches to HDMI 1, my receiver switches to the proper input and the home screen of the player appears on the screen awaiting my next move. Couldn't be any easier!

Hmm...I still have to manually switch the TV to HDMI...2...actually...maybe I have something not quite right yet... Other than that...all seems good. I'll have to watch 'The Martian' to see if I experience the blocking...

Are you using a universal remote? The 650 does it all. One remote instead of 4!

Not yet. I just ordered a Sony Universal, though...I don't really need all the bells/whistles/expense of the Logitech. If my AVR remote had a eject button on it, I could have just used it, but it doesn't.


Anyway - I'll see what happens and if it doesn't do the trick, i'm only out $12...and I will get a Logitech.

I like the X800 remote better(which is model RMT-VB310U). Since it is longer and the buttons aren't placed as close together. Plus the transport buttons are layed out better.


Thank you.

Anyone know the best place to mount and IT sensor on this thing?

Look in the manual, or go to Sony support site. They have picture that shows where the sensor is located.

No offense intended, but are you serious about wanting a remote eject button? (It is April 1, after all.)

I've always thought remote eject buttons were a joke. (You have to walk over to the player to insert or remove a disk, after all. The remote might save you the few seconds it'd take for the tray to open after pressing the button on the player.) I admit that I keep my player in a cabinet with windowed doors, so the tray couldn't open unless I pushed the player 'way back on the shelf.

Ha! Point taken…but yep…I’m fairly serious – my room is sorta not well lit, and my eyes aren’t all that young anymore, so rather than feeling my way around, I’d rather just have the eject button. Guess I could just have my better-half change discs…lol… I’m not blind…but yeah…

Yeah, there is that.

I admit that I sometimes have a problem with the stylish black-on-black control markings on modern electronic devices. I have sometimes have had to train myself to find the buttons by their position rather than by actually seeing them. So much for ergonomics.

Then I closed the tray and it resumed where I left off and sound a picture were back in sync. The rest of the movie played without any issue.

Has anyone seen phenomena such as this with the X800?
Got my X800 3 days ago. Hooked up HDMI1 to the Samsung JU7100 with a certified premium 4K cable and the audio HDMI2 to a Pioneer VSX-820-K with a HDMI 1.4 cable. I've only played 2 BD disks so far (not 4K) and on the second one, Patriots Day, the sound went out of sync about half way through the movie. Sound was ahead of the video just like yours. I hit pause, waited a minute, restarted and the sound was synced. Then about 5-10 minutes later the sound went out of sync again. I stopped the movie and restarted. Fast forwarded to the place I left off and the rest played OK.


This is really bugging me. Only 3 days in and audio sync problems. I'm going to get 2 matching 4K HDMI cables to connect with but I don't think the cables are the problem. I'm going to watch Passengers tonight and if the audio sync problem happens again I might just return this thing.

I've only gotten through "islands" so far on Planet Earth II and am so impressed with the image. It doesn't hurt that they film this series with the intention to capture nature in unprecedented ways. I'm looking forward to watching more this weekend!

So, regarding Fantastic Beasts, I tried a little experiment and turned HDR off on the player. While the picture was clear, crisp, and looked beautiful, It seemed subdued, dimmer (of course) and less alive. Turning HDR back on revealed such a different result! The gleaming sunshine and its light cast on the actors and the scene. The way the colors just popped, so dynamic and different. HDR brought new life into the viewing experience!

This may seem like a 'well, duh!' scenario, but for anyone who is interested in an a/b comparison to answer the question of 'What does HDR add to the experience?' and 'What more could you want than amazing 4K picture quality?' This movie shows off HDR's improvements incredibly. The difference is not subtle in the least.

Overview of X800 from Eric Kingdon (Sony Europe) : YouTube
I received my X800 yesterday 3/31/17. Let me mention the face plate has NO LIGHTS whatsoever...Exception: a tiny winny green pinpoint green light that let's you know it's "ON."

Other than that, it's very sturdy...and as like it's predecessors. Welcome screen not so cool. Nothing as good as the S5000es.

Picture looks good and the tray does make a small plastic "Slam"as the Samsung K8500 does when closing the tray, but not as loud.

I've always thought remote eject buttons were a joke. (You have to walk over to the player to insert or remove a disk, after all. The remote might save you the few seconds it'd take for the tray to open after pressing the button on the player.) I admit that I keep my player in a cabinet with windowed doors, so the tray couldn't open unless I pushed the player 'way back on the shelf.

I like having one on the remote like the one you get with the player. Sometimes, you have to eject and re-insert the disc to clear up an odd quirk. It's nice to be able to have the tray already ejected by the time you walk across the room to grab the disc when you're putting it away. Every now and then, it doesn't insert correctly or at all and you don't know until you're back in your chair - having a button to draw the tray would be nice.

It isn't a deal breaker, but it's a "nice-to-have" that sometimes is missed when you go to a more universal remote that doesn't have it.
