Do you cut the player on last, after everything else is up and running?

All the components turn ON basically at the same time. I have a Harmony Elite remote and have a scene for Watching Movies with the X700. This issue is present only when the player have been off for several hours. If I turn the system OFF then wait 10 mins or so, turn the system ON then the VUDU app just works properly without the HDCP 2.2 warning.

Odd.

I got in a habit with HDMI 2.0 handshakes, I have my Harmony cut on my display and AVR, and then once they are up I cut the player on my self.

X700 streams 4K....

Well that would be a reason to update from the X800 then.

You're referring to VUDU, right ? Than yes Also, what TV do you have? I have a Sony Android TV and there's a VUDU 4k app that can be sideloaded and it works on mine. The only downside is that the audio track is stereo, no DD, DD+ or Atmos. If you have a Sony TV and you don't mind stereo audio, that might be a cheaper option than a $250 player.

Just purchased this player at Best Buy this afternoon. I’m getting HDR with my 4k discs, but cannot get HDR when streaming YouTube, Netflix, or amazon. Any ideas or suggestions? I’m streaming over WiFi.

Did you update the firmware?

How's your wifi connection? Maybe check with YouTube "Stats for nerds".

Here's what you should see:

If its streaming in 4K but only stereo than that would not be a reason to upgrade form an x800.

What app are you talking about? Stereo?

The firmware is updated, switched to a wired connection, tried the video you recommended, and HDR still didn’t trigger for that particular video. However, I tried a few other HDR videos, and those finally did work. Still no HDR Netflix or Amazon. My internet speed isn’t near as good as yours either, that may be why? I’m hovering in the 13,000 to 17,000 kbps range. Just doesn’t make sense to me why it would work with some HDR videos and not others.

No, I have asked about the x700 and if it streams 4K. I don't care about Android TV's.

The x800 does not.

I've not asked a single question about any TV Android or otherwise.

My guess would be the speed of your connection to be honest

The OP can answer most, if not all, of your questions about audio. However, I'm not aware of any of the apps being limited to stereo. The X700 is actually robust with features and when it's updated with Dolby Vision I suspect we'll get even better app features.

Kind of what I was thinking, but I can stream both Amazon and Netflix in HDR and DV on the built in apps. I have the Sony 940E. Just trying to figure out if I need to exchange this player. I’ll keep playing around with it. Thanks for the help!

So I’m noticing that many videos that claim to be an hdr video on you tube, don’t all play in hdr (through this player). Matter of fact, it seems only videos on The HDR Channel, are the only ones that work for me. Can anyone else check this and let me know if they are experiencing the same?

Youtube is not a trusted source for HDR, UHD or Atmos videos. Some videos claim been HDR and they are not. Trusted sources are Amazon Prime Video, Netflix and VUDU.

Please reference the post I made here:

https://www.avsforum.com/forum/149-bl...l#post55574766

Only profile version two of the YouTube codec will play HDR.

I have the European version and it doesn't have the Amazon video app (which is advertised on the box), I don't see any way to download it either. The player is up to date so I have no idea what to do.

A little disappointed that HDR isnt in for VUDU (yet?). I hope they can find a way to implement it and DV for VUDU, most of my collection is on VUDU.
