There is no 2 HDMI's on either unit. In some literature it says so but look at the models and pull up the spec and user manuals and you'll see they both have only one HDMI along with optical audio out.
Disappointing if you wanted 2 HDMI outputs.

Wow. I ordered a UP970 on Amazon black friday for an "amazing" price, or so I thought.
Just happened to be checking my orders and shipping and noticed it said "UP870".
I was like, wait, what? I didn't even know there was a UP870 or one coming out. I feel tricked just a bit, I saw the price and jumped on it, thinking LG only had one UHD player.

That said, I think I'll keep it instead of canceling before it ships.
I don't have a Dolby Vision set and likely won't for some time (years probably). And I don't need any streaming or anything, I have a ShieldTV for all of that. I literally only wanted a UHD disc capable player, and that's what this is. So, actually, its the right device at the right price for me.

I've been buying new titles in UHD since launch, just using the regular BD until players hit my breaking point, which the UP870 did. While I was at it, I took advantage of Amazon's 3 for 49.99 deal to bolster that collection, ended up saving over $50 on UHD blurays I've been watching since launch that haven't really gone on sale or dropped in price much.

(note, I have a 1080p plasma and a 1080p projector and don't expect to upgrade for some time, but still looking forward to improvements as both will accept 4:4:4 RGB so I look forward to color improvements, as well as higher bitrates, plus Atmos/DTS-X as soon as I can justify an AVR upgrade)

edit: LG really stealth-released this thing didn't they? I was Googling and there is NOTHING anywhere about this player, no one has reviewed it, there's not even a press announcement or anything. Weird.

edit2: the Spec Sheet and Manual have conflicting info on what is supported. The manual makes no mention of Atmos, I'm guessing its just an oversight, they tend to copy/paste manuals and just tweak them, I'm guessing they copy/pasted from a Bluray player instead of the UP970.

This is my first post, forgive any errors. I bought one of these (UP870) at Walmart the other day for next to nothing. This thing works great, no noise, no handshake problems. Plugged directly into HDMI port one on my Vizio M65 EO. Using optical out from tv to nine year old Integra receiver 5.1 good enough for me. Tired of waiting for affordable Dolby Vision player.

Atmos and DTSX = Yes

So I just want to confirm for everyone that Atmos and DTS-X is supported by this player (LG 875). I owned the 970 (March Version) and after many months of waiting for DV and dealing with random pauses in the middle of my 4k movies I decided to take it back (love those extended warranties). Dv does not seem to be in the future and the visual upgrade currently with the lack of support is not worth the OPPO upgrade to me.

This player does everything I need it to do. I have a 5.2.4 sound system and all I cared about was Atmos and DTS-X. And it works great.

The reason I bring this up is that on LG's page for the item someone posted under the Ask questions if it supports DTS-X and they stated "No" That is NOT correct. I played 4 DTS-X movies I own and they all worked (I have .4 ceiling speakers and my receiver and my ears heard it all day).

This player is more then worth the $99 price tag. Honestly until the developers/products get caught up over the next year, this is the only player I would recommend.

Only thing I notice different is it does not support Wifi or streaming. Since I use Amazon Fire TV for my streaming there is no need for it for me. No real need for Wifi if you are just up dating firmware once a year. Hope this helps.

My son gifted me one of the UP875's for Christmas. I have a 4K Samsung TV, and by springtime my NAD T758 receiver will be fully upgraded to the "v3" version for Atmos. I have a Cisco cable TV box (Charter Spectrum service) and that's it for input, so lack of multiple HDMI inputs is a non issue for me. The unit works fine with the TV that can stream my Netflix account via its own wireless.

First thing I noticed is that it boots up and reads a BluRay disk far faster than the Sony BDP-S480 it replaces. The upscaled picture is definitely better too. Huge win for the price point.

So do any of the owners run it on 1080p display (preferably projection)? How does the BR image (or downscaled 4K image) compare to your previous BR 1080p only player?

I don't plan to upgrade my current 1080p projector anytime soon, but wouldn't mind picking up one of these instead of a regular BR player to replace my current 6 year old BR player. Second, my current setup uses a 40' run of HDMI cable to the PJ - would that be a problem with this player for 1080p content?

Just picked up LG UP870 recently at a Walm-Mart in store. Really great price for LG product (way less than MSRP) considering the only other alternative near this price was a Magnavox one sold at Best Buy. I have a Samsung 4k Curved TV KS8500 with an Onkyo TX-NR555 receiver. Also do like all the various formats it cane play especially from USB drive, quickly tested out some converted mkvs to mp4.

Wanted to know if anyone here with the similar type Smasung TV and player could suggest any settings for best maximizing 4k HDR 10 picture quality set up?

I already watched 2 movies on it. One was Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 4k and then regular blu ray movie Straight Outta Compton.

Guardians looked fine to me, was hard to tell if it was on HDR 4k 10 because I did not see much difference from my previous player which was a reg 1080p Sony blu ray player (that one had a setting for deep 10bit color to it) but the info on the TV when playing the 4k movie from the LG did show HDR with 4K resolution and then I did change the settings that made the picture brighter. The scene were they go to the IGO planet for the first time with all the various colors looked really good.

Straight Outta Compton was fine since it was up scaled, there was just a tiny bit of distortion (really quick) between the shadows and light when the camera moved fast or it was fast cut. The only major issue I came across was audio but I had to change the audio settings on the LG to PCM instead of auto and the receiver did read it as DTS-HD.

Both movies did look super sharp and clean.

I do have a few other movies in 4k: Logan, Cars 3 and Wonder woman. I will watch those later on.

No need for any streaming apps on the player since I already get those through the TV.

I don't own GOTG2 4k but have seen samples in 4k.

One scene that should be very obvious HDR is when the sisters are fighting on Ego in front of the flaming, crashed spaceship.

Just an excellent use of HDR. I doubt the 1080p SDR version is in the same ballpark.

Does anyone know if the UP875 has LG's SmartShare feature? That's the service where you can browse for files on storage devices, including your network. Some posts seem to indicate yes, but there is nothing in the specs about it.

Blu-ray/4K Player General Settings

This isn't mentioned very much but generally speaking...what would be the correct or best settings for a Blu-ray player? There's a setting for "Picture"...like on a TV...that has option for Movie, Standard, Vivid and Dynamic but those settings aren't available unless you have a disk already playing.


Just got a Samsung 55inch 4K 6300 TV and the LG 875 4K player. Watched Passengers in 4K last night and some of the skin tones looked a bit chalky or to bright, it looks like glare from the lighting on the movie set possibly but everything else looked good. I called Samsung and they said as of 2017 the TV does have HDR 10. Anyway so I checked out all the settings on the TV and the player and noticed the player was set to the "Standard" mode so I switched it to "Movie" and that seemed to fixed it...I have the TV set to Movie also. I've heard that Normal or Standard is the better setting for players but the skin tones didn't look right...on that movie anyway. I could put it back to Standard and play with some other settings I guess if I need to and see if anything else might work instead. Any thoughts?

I have had the UP870 for about a week now. I've been noticing that anything I watch, whether it be BD or DVD, is reporting that the resolution is 2160p (according to my AVR). I have the output on the player set to Auto and not to one specific resolution. Has anyone else noticed this? Is there another setting I'm not thinking of?

Might need to turn something "on" in the TV settings...anything that says HDR. Sometimes those settings might be in a sub menu somewhere and also call tech support.

I have a question about these players and HDR.

My TV is a "niche" model, where it is a 4K TV but as far as I know NOT an HDR capable TV. It's a Samsung UN55JU6500F. What display should I get if I'm playing a 4K HDR BluRay disk? Will it ignore the 4K because I have no HDR capability? This is confusing, and I don't want to have to upgrade the TV after just 2 or (at most) 3 years of ownership.

EDIT: Looking at the specs it shows it does have "HDR10" capability. Is this what I need to have UHD output together with 4K resolution?

KEF R500, R200C, R100, R50, SVS SB2000 sub, NAD T758v3 AVR, Pro-Ject RPM1 TT w/ Ortofon 2M Red, Bluesound Vault2, LG UP875 4K BlueRay, Samsung UN55JU6500F 4K LED TV, KEF M500 headphones, Sony CDP-CE500 CD changer. Desktop: NAD M10, KEF LS50, KEF Kube 10b. Guest room: Hafler 200 L-R, KEF reference Model 100 center, KEF iQ10 surrounds, M&K V-90 sub.

I am using a optoma gt1080 projector, and the player works fine with it. I think there is improve picture.. to me.. seems more details. I had to play with the calibration settings to get it work just right. other then that. its fine.. its a very fast player. I am coming from the oppo 93 player.

Thanks Jacob. How long is the HDMI cable that you are using with this setup?

I meant the HDMI "going to the Projector" length (assuming its a longer run)

Thanks again. My concern is the 40' HDMI cable I currently have running to my ceiling mounted pj. Not sure if this player will handle that...

I have no idea. Its a great little player. its very fast..you can even adjust the subtitles for projectors.. I liked that on the oppo. for 100 bucks to get the dolby atmos and DTS from UHD titles. its an easy choice.

This is correct. This is true for most player barring few that has specific setting to stick to "source" resolution and not "display".
On any player "Auto" will use the maximum possible resolution that your display supports.

EDIT: Looking at the specs it shows it does have "HDR10" capability. Is this what I need to have UHD output together with 4K resolution?
4K and HDR are two different things.
You will be able to use this player with your current TV and you should get 4K (You will not get HDR as your TV does not support it).

Yes, I know they are two different things.

When I looked up specs on the TV, it shows having the "HDR10" spec. I realize it's nowhere near the capability of an OLED screen, but better than nothing.

The player has no "play" in how the cable will behave. It's the sheer length of the cable that is the troubling point you have.
Anyways to reduce that length or going optical would be the only solution. (Assuming you will be driving the UHD display. For 1080p you should still be good, most probably).
