That would explain it. I tried pressing it twice slowly, pressing it twice quickly, pressing it and holding it, and tried these on two separate occasions. It was in Vincent Teogh's video that I saw him do this, but he was using the UB9000.

Yes, the metadata information is a 9000 feature.

Hi all,

As an UB900 owner, is it a good idea to buy UB820 for the HDR optimizer function?

@chhanthony , If you own a projector, then yes. I have an Oppo 203, but just recently purchased the 820 to go with my JVC RS420, and am very impressed with the 820.

Sorry for all the questions... I am slowly making my through all 120 pages of this thread.
No, the HDR Optimizer settings are only available in SDR/BT2020 output mode when playing a UHD disc that contains HDR.

The Optimizer settings are only available for Netflix and Amazon when the player is in HDR output mode and playing an HDR title.

I did some testing with the Dynamic Range Conversion Adj. slider and it appears to me that the setting value configured during HDR output mode is completely ignored when playing Amazon HDR content in SDR/BT2020 output mode. This was disappointing. My guess, and this is only a guess, is that in SDR/BT2020 output mode a default tone map is used to map Amazon HDR to SDR/BT2020 and the Optimizer may not be utilized.
Can you tell by the meta data that it is even doing tone mapping at all? This was my concern that the unit was not tone mapping any of it's streaming apps.

Do we know for sure if it tone maps the internal Netflix and YouTube app for HDR/UHD content?

I was doing A/B switching between streaming content with Roku and then the Panasonic apps... Exact same content and there was no appreciable difference when I would think the stuff streamed from th panasonic should look noticeably better.

I watch a lot more of DVDs & Blu-rays than the Newer 4K Disc.

Here is the bottom-line on the above.

If it's really a CRAPPY DVD and or Blu-ray then guess what your going to see ???

On the other hand if the Blu-ray is actually a quality done movie it can look darn close to a 4K Disc.
Example, AVATAR is an excellent Blu-ray and looks like a 4K.
(I'm not saying the Blu-rays look exactly like a 4K, I'm saying they look GREAT)
Keep in mind I'm viewing these on a Custom Calibrated JVC RS4500 Laser projector.

BTW,
All 4K disc don't necessarily look Fantastic just like all Blu-ray DVDs don't.

I have an HDfury device connected after my UB820. The HDfury reports the HDR metadata received.

As an example, let's say the UB820 is set to HDR output with the Optimizer turned ON and HDR Display Type is set to OLED which represents 1000 nits. The HDR Optimizer will tone map the highlights that exceed 1000 nits in the content down to inside of 1000 nits. Before outputting the result, the Optimizer then replaces the original metadata with new values. MaxDML (Maximum Display Monitor Luminance) would be modfied to 1000 nits. MaxCLL (Maximum Content Luminance Level) would be set to a value less than or equal to 1000 nits depending upon the original MaxCLL value of the content.

When playing content from Netflix or Amazon with the UB820 in HDR output mode with the Optimizer turned ON, my HDfury reports that the original content metadata has been changed. So it leads me to believe that the Optimizer is indeed tone mapping. Otherwise, changing the metadata values alone without tone mapping could result in the HDR TV clipping highlights when it performed its tone mapping. This is my opinion, right or wrong.

When the UB820 is set to SDR/BT2020 output, I believe that the Optimizer is not used to tone map Amazon HDR to SDR/BT2020. For one, you can't access the Opimizer settings. They can only be accessed when playing a UHD disc. In addition, I came to this conclusion because I found that no matter what value I set the Dynamic Range Conversion Adj. slider when playing a UHD disc, it appears to have no effect on the brightness of Amazon content. Setting the slider to its maximum position makes UHD disc content too bright and washed out. Setting the slider to the minimum position makes UHD disc content too dark. But subsequent viewing of Amazon video HDR content after changing the slider value while playing a UHD disc looks the same in either case. So I believe the Optimizer is not used, and a default tone map is used to map Amazon HDR to SDR/BT2020. Again, my opinion only.

The reason you may not see a difference is so much of Amazon and Netflix content is mastered at 1000 nits and sometimes contains no metadata at all in which case a default 1000 nit tone map would be used by the Optimizer.. The Optimizer will perform less tone mapping in these cases than it would if MaxDML and MaxCLL metadata values were higher. If you set HDR Display Type to OLED (1000 nits) the Optimizer would probably not perform any tone mapping for 1000 nit content or content with missing metadata values.

One Netflix show that was mastered at high nits is Altered Carbon. I can easily see clipped highlights. Maybe @matpal can test that to see if the UB820 makes a difference.
And Marco Polo looks really dim in some scenes.

Yes the visuals are great, too bad can't say the same for the show itself

I don't see where he mentioned what HDR display he has. If it is a Basic Luminance TV (500 nits) then I would expect to see the Optimizer make a more obvious difference with Amazon/Netflix content than if he has a High Luminance TV (1500 nits).

it has been a while since I watched Marco Polo but I recall that the metadata data values were very high.

All bets are off if it is a projector with a fixed HDR gamma curve. And besides, most projector owners will set the UB820 to SDR/BT2020 mode in which case I have now come to believe that the Optimizer is not used at all for Amazon and Netflix.

I was considering getting a UB820, but I watch streaming far more than discs. Would I benefit from the Optimizer at all, if I set it to output 500 nits and construct a custom curve on the projector accordingly?

As you may have read, the apps through the UB820 are not the best

The comments seem to be mixed. If I remember correctly, most of the streaming issues are with SDR2020. In any case, my JVC eshift projector doesn't read metadata and I'm trying to see if the Optimizer helps.

I am very hesitant to answer since the last time I did I got beat down for it.

But I will say that I experimented with setting the UB820 to Projector (500 nits) and whatever the middle luminance LCD setting is called (1000 nits). I thought I got better results with the LCD 1000 nit setting combined with my 1000 nit custom curve in my JVC RS500 than I did with the 500 nit Projector setting and my 1000 nit curve. I did not try to build a 500 nit custom curve.

I now watch UHD discs in SDR/BT2020 mode on my JVC RS500. I watch Netflix and Amazon using my LG OLED where the HDR Optimizer and the LG tone mapping seem to work well together.

Anyone using the player with both hdmi outs( one to tv and one to reciever)? I am still not having any luck getting sound from my reciever. There has got to be some setting that is keeping the sound off from the hdmi audio out. It plays fine when the reciever’s hdmi out is disconnected from the tv but wont play when it is connected. It is a yahmaha reciever and had no problem outputting audio only the oppo 203. Also, the display flashes that the high clarity sound is on. Is that normal or something that should be turned off?

Try this:


Set the following items in the setup menu
  • Set “HDMI(VIDEO) Output Mode” to “Auto ( Video Only / Video+Audio )”.
  • Set “HDMI(AUDIO) Output Mode” to “Audio Only”.

I’m using both. No issues here. I don’t even remember having to set anything up to get it to work. Might have though.

Picked this up today. With my b7a i tried a/b testing of the first fantastic beasts movie. It wasn’t as drastic as the pictures earlier in this thread (my b7a with it off still shows details on the wand blasts) BUT it does look a lot more detailed with it on with both still shots and in real time. Definitely worth the money to get the best hdr possible. Will be interesting to see if it’s helpful with the new 2019 oleds as well.

TV: Sony A9G 77" Oled & LG B7A 65" Oled
AVR: Denon AVRX4300H
F/L: Emotiva Airmotiv T2, Center: Emotiva Airmotiv C2, Surround: Emotiva Airmotiv B1 x4, Atmos: Elac A4 x4, Subwoofer: PSA V1811, Actuator: Crowson x2
4k Player: Panasonic UB 820

Thanks guys. i have the settings adjusted as suggested but no dice. It is something to do with both the player and reciever connected to the tv at same time. I didn’t have to do anything with oppo either.

Is your reciever connected to your tv as well as your player?
