I just got an update for the player, although the LG Website doesn't acknowledge there are any! Anybody else get this?

Me too, I'm surprised that after all this time we're still getting updates. I wonder what it does?

Updating as well. I hope it doesn't change my settings. I have it set to RGB and 16:9 Full.

It seems faster with slightly better PQ.

I've done several searches and have come up empty handed. Unit seem to function perfectly after the update with no change in anything. I have a few reference 4k discs that I am going to pull out and see if I notice anything different at all in the scenes I have watched and re-watched in the past as 100/100......

To Be Continued....(maybe).

Thanks for any advice.
Have you done a recent sync with your Harming remote to the MyHarmony program?

I lost functionality for powering on/off my AppleTV after a TvOS upgrade that was fixed with updating the remote with a sync.

Thanks. Yes, I had already done it a few times, and tried to re-program, but it didn't help either. Very weird.

Well, I re-positioned my gear and it worked. Probably I did something stupid. Thanks for the help, I will delete my original post.

Blimey - the UP970 has a firmware update out of the blue...
This takes us to SW version BD39.338.91219.C

Mine installed - not sure yet what it's fixed/changed as it was very late.
YouTube is doing HDR correctly - didn't get a chance to load NetFlix.

After some testing of several disc, on this player. RGB appears to be the proper color space to use. YCbCr seems to compress dynamic range and color. Dolby Vision looks exceptionally detailed, colorful, with lots depth and highlights that pop while the player is set to RGB.

HDR10 works fine under YCbCr and is actually the right color space, DV no. Atleast on my display.

What tv do you have?

So you manually go in each time in settings and change to RGB depending if the disc has Dolby Vision?

2016 Vizio P Series. The answer is yes, the difference in PQ is worth it and significant enough to change the setting. And most of my disc have DV encodes.

Great. Thanks. I have a 2017 Vizio M Series. I will give it a try.

Still own a UP970 and the thing is loud when playing a 4K disc. Watched Jaws 4K last night. Haven't done a firmware update in about 2 years once Dolby Vision worked. Didn't want to lose that since it had disappeared before for others. Guess I should download the latest firmware to see if it enhances anything on this unit.

Was there ever a fix for the noisiness?

This is down to the mounting of the drive, as the build of this unit is quite cheap. The early units were apparently mostly bad, the later UP970's were better. Some people opened up their unit & tinkered with the drive seating. I've found that light pressure on the top of my unit makes it quieter so I have my cable service box on top.

However, even so, some disks are always a little noisy for me.

I put a book on top yesterday which seemed to quiet it down. I think the disc matters too. Didn't notice the noise with Top Gun 4K but definitely did with Jaws 4K.

I also did the latest firmware update which went smoothly. Jaws hung up about 75% thru the movie and I had to restart that scene to get thru the movie on Monday. Hopefully the update fixed that little glitch.

Its a solid machine and relatively cheap. I think I paid $135 at Fry's a few years ago. Current players cost way more than that now.
