4:4:4 (18 Gbps), similar to the issue with main menu screen on the Samsung 8500 UHD player. If posters on this thread are unable/unwilling to upgrade to "premium certified" HDMI cables, then the ATV4K (as well as others) will certainly suffice to provide Netflix HDR & Atmos, albeit without the advantage of the Panasonic's Optimizer.
I have ZERO problems with the video streaming or ability to decode Netflix Atmos via the UB820/9000 app now that I have the Yamaha RX-A3080 AVR (also true for several generations Denon/Marantz AVRs). As a former owner of the JVC RS500 projector, I realize that the slow sync times of some display devices can wreak havoc in getting the settings of sources to be properly confirmed. There really isn't a significant lag in the new JVC projectors, so setting the UB820/9000 was much less frustrating.
