Kodi free? OK I'll give that a shot for the .mkv playback via HDMI to my AVR. Thanks Coxy.

There seems to be a PC solution to this issue, but so far I have not found a way to do so in the Apple/Mac universe. The good new is that with projectors at least, the tone mapping in the 820 does make the switch a significant upgrade for playing 4K UHD DVDs.
So true in every regard here SHS.

You try the Kodi solution suggested by Coxy above?

I tried 5 different media players with no luck, but not kodi. When I have time I'll give it a try. I had the impression that Apple was blocking certain formats as a matter of policy, and that may or may not be true.

SONY VPL-VW385ES, Da-Lite 92" 0.9 HD progressive 16x9 screen, Apple TV 4K, HDFury Integral 2, Oppo UDP 203, Panasonic DP-UB820, Anthem AVM 60, D-Sonic 4000 (800x3, 400x4) for bed layer, 2 Crown XLS 1002 (225x4) for Atmos; Speakers: Polk LSiM 705s, 703 front, 4 702F/X surround, 4 Polk TL3 (Atmos), Dual Velodyne DD15 Subwoofers.

Selling the Oppo is enough to pay for a UB820 + nVidia SHIELD and still have money left over. I still maintain that unless there is some very specific esoteric Oppo feature that you need, it is best to get rid of it.

If you are a person who uses their Oppo for movie disc playback only, there is definitely zero reason to keep it.

I still use the Oppo as my main player for movie disc playback and it's awesome, why would there be zero reason to keep it for that?

Because for movie discs the UB820 is better and cheaper.

Not to my eyes. I owned the 820 for a while and kept the Oppo. PQ differences are minimal at best between the two players and the Optimizer did not make much of a difference at least not on my Sony Oled. I don't need Panny's tone mapping to bring out a slight change in some bright scenes. But I guess owners of Projectors and below AVG HDR tv's would probably benefit more from the Panny's tone mapping. My Oppo is still an awesome player and IMO If you have a higher end TV with good HDR and you won't notice much of a difference using the Panny player.

A quick review.

I have had my 820 for 3 weeks now.

I have a JVC RS500 calibrated by ChadB two years ago. I have a 170" screen in a cave theater. I typically run 4k through my Roku Ultra and occasionally through Amazon Fire stick. All wired ethernet. I had a Philips 4k player for discs.

I so wish the Panasonic 820 had a Vudu App but otherwise it is absolutely my go to device now for streaming Amazon or Netflix. I have started watching discs again as well.

The increased brightness for 4k HDR is like having a new projector. I am comfortable planning to wait a few years for my next projector upgrade now. I had the burns for the new JVC projectors because of the Tone Mapping. Now, I'm fine with what I have. Sure I'd like a true 4k projector, but the added brightness in HDR with the Panasonic and the excellent blacks with the JVC make me very happy.

I want to simply ask whether the Panasonic tone mapping optimization works equally well with Amazon and Netfiix streams, as it does with BR and UHD discs?

Hoping that Panasonic will port a Plex app into their library.

The tone mapping on the 820 does work for 4k HDR streams from Netflix and Amazon. Makes a very impressive, easily noticed difference before and after. I need all of the light I can get with my setup and the perceived brightness improvement for HDR streamed movies/shows using the 820 is fantastic.

I’ve read it’s a fantastic player for discs but can not play MKV files with audio.


I was thinking about upgrading to the 820, but if it can’t play standard mkv files then it’s a no go. I a have DLNA setup with 1080p/Dolly Digital content. Both my Sony BD players work flawlessly with DLNA content. Probably wait for Sony to release the 1100ES.

That’s good to hear. Does the 820 play 4K HDR and Atmos content from Netflix ok?

Am I understanding correctly that the 820 seems to display HDR content better due to the optimizedr? I have a C8 and am wondering if HDR content on Netflix looks better with the 820 versus the built in TV app?

Is there anyone who uses Amazon with UB-820 that does NOT have an issue with it stuttering (or/frame skipping?). It's kind of frustrating because it's one of the few ways to watch some MoviesAnywhere 4K titles with the tone mapping capabilities of the 820.. but it's sorta wasted if it's going to continue to have issues...



Also... exactly how does the dynamic slider work? Obviously if you go into the +, it makes the image brighter, but what exactly is it doing.. is it lowering the peak nits setting as you move up? If so, what target is "0" going to be at? What about +6 or +12? (or even negative)

I agree with you.
For the projectors i have the 9000 as well as the 820 and the low luminance projector setting is highly recommended. The tone mapping itself is worth the price.

I was an owner of three oppo 203 players for me once i saw the 9000 in action i knew the 9000 was the one to keep.

I understand your point but my dual Oppo/Panny 820 combo will coexist in my home theater for a while. I have found that Infuse with ATV 4k just about replaces the Oppo 203 as a media player which is my prime reason for holding onto the Oppo. My Oppo remains the Swiss Army knife of my HT and I have complete confidence in it working should I encounter playback issues with other disc players or media players.

Has any UB820 owner been able to get Dolby Atmos in the Amazon Prime Video app for those appropriate UHD titles which are linked through the Movies Anywhere account? If so, what AVR are you using? Thanks!

My 820 looks fantastic. Until dynamic tone mapping arrives, it won't move.
What is the 'other PJ setting on the 9000' that differentiates it from the 820??

Thanks! (trying to find differences between the two players besides the analog outs, build quality, etc).

Goodbye to a great audio and video genius and writer... JOHN GANNON. I enjoyed your friendship, wit and a nice long run we took around Indianapolis at CEDIA years back... and for buying my Runco 980 Ultra years back... you saved my ass! Rest in peace.

There are two luminance settings for projectors on the 9000. One is for 350 nits and one is for 500. These were apparently designed for the new JVC projectors filters, but I haven't read of any great difference of them. I could be wrong.

For my rs620, the 820 is working just great. In fact, the 900 I had before was, too.

That 9000 will cost you $500 more for that simple setting, plus a more rugged build and a better remote. I still have the 900 remote, which is the same, so I'm good.

Is there a way to select no HDR settings in the player if you prefer to have PJ do it?

Thanks for the info!

Turn off the hdr optimizer...that will tell the player not to use its own tone mapping...

None yet but have a Sony 5000 mounted and ready to go. Hard to justify the extra $500 for the Panny 9000 but am still mulling it all over.

A 5000?! Well alrighty then. I'd say go for the UB9000. Or if your not likely to use the optimizer, maybe an Oppo or Cambridge UHD player.

Ha! Maybe.

I plan on using an anamorphic lens. I assume the 820 has aspect ratio options for that?

Thanks.

Unfortunately the Panasonic's do not . Seems like no single player offers everything these days.

Proper Method to use Masciola Disc for Projectors with the UB820?

I just moved to the UB820 to use with my RS400. I have Custom Curves on my JVC for HDR, and while they're decent, they're not ideal, and then there is still the disc to disc variation. My thinking is that I could get more consistent results with the UB820.

I have not rigorously compared HDR (using my custom curve) vs SDR-2020 (using Gamma 2.4) output to my Projector, but my initial impressions were that there wasn't an obvious difference, with the edge going perhaps towards HDR.

I am now interested in using the Masciola UHD patterns to tweak my Projector settings for greater accuracy. There are obviously a number of settings that can be chosen within the UB820 that would likely impact these adjustments.

Is there a defined protocol of sorts for how to correctly set up the UB-820 for optimal results with the Masciola Disc?
Which patterns would be used, and which adjustments need to be made - mainly brightness and contrast setting, or others as well?

Any information or links appreciated.

Does anybody have an Samsung Q9FN setup with this player? If so what settings are you using?

I apologize in advance if this has been covered before but is there a way to stream my 3D Vudu content on this player? I recently switched from a Sony player which supports Vudu.

Thanks
