Set Resolution to less than 2160p, or feed a display that doesn't support HDR.

is there an official UBD-M9700 thread here? i've searched and can't find it. i have an issue where the BDP doesn't output any video signal when i set my Marantz SR6014 receiver 4K Signal Format setting to Enhanced from Standard. the BDP's startup screen/menus don't pass through the receiver. setting it to Enhanced allows all my other sources (Apple TV4K, PS PS4 Pro, Samsung Q9NF QLED) to display full 4K HDR content. well, the BDP does display 4K (non-HDR) during playback when the receiver's 4K Signal Format is set to Standard, but when i set it to Enhanced during playback, the video doesn't pass through (audio does, though). i've already performed a factory reset on all components. even when it's set to Enhanced, i can set up the BDP, but as soon as i play a disc, the video signal disappears. both HDMI Color Format and Deep Color are set to AUTO.

Just googling it, Enhanced looks like it supports chroma 4:4:4 as well as 10 bit color vs chroma 4:2:0 at 8 bit on Standard. Try replacing your HDMI cables with cables that are Premium Certified, any bandwidth issues on the cables will cause issues like this.

Beyond that I have no idea, if the cables are good then you may need to contact Marantz or find a Marantz thread.

thanks. i'm already on the Marantz thread for my particular receiver and had already read that post on the Marantz site. with Monoprice certified 4K 18Gbps HDMI cables, i had no 4K HDR resolution issues with the Sony STR-DN1080 receiver that cost half as much as the Marantz. (i replaced it to due to general failing.) i just received an order of new Monoprice certified 8K 48Gbps HDMI cables, but that didn't fix it, so i'm highly doubting it's a bandwidth issue, but rather an EDID "handshake" issue, so i'm considering an EDID emulator.

I was just curious if you two were still experiencing playback errors with the new firmware? I’ve been thinking about using GeekSquad protection to trade up to a Panasonic 820.

@UnfoldingSquid The new firmware released last week has corrected the problem. Hopefully this will never reoccur and we'll get years of usage from these machines. But, that said, if I had the option to upgrade to the 820 I'd take advantage, especially with the great 820 reviews and Samsung leaving the blu-ray market.

Best, Steve

Thanks for the response, it’s good to know they fixed it. I probably will go to the Panasonic, just not 100% sure yet.

Has anyone had issues where during BluRay playback the screensaver kicks in? The screen goes black with the Samsung logo appearing but audio still present. Hitting the back button on remote goes back to video

Seems to happen sporadically sometimes a lot and other times not for a few weeks. Doesn't make much sense as to why it would appear?

Am on latest firmware

Sorry I’m new here...
Is there anyway to turn my region B locked player region free at all?
There used to be hacks for DVD players back in the day but not sure if that sort of thing still works?
I have UBD-M9500 running the latest firmware.
Thanks in advance for any and all help
