I have checked and I have Auto for the HDMI video and Audio Only for the HDMI audio. I confirmed the port is fine for the AVR as I swapped another device into that port and get audio as part of my troubleshooting.

I understood the point of the additional HDMI port was for this exact situation.

Any ideas what is going on?

I have the latest firmware and an odd annoyance is that the sub menus exit you without doing anything and you can't change things easily or you think you did it and can't. I think this is a bug with this firmware. (I think it is 1.55 IIRC, so perhaps I can downgrade?)

Maybe I have to call Panasonic Canada on Monday.

I only noticed this when I unplugged the optical cable from the TV going to the AVR on my "TV" input set to optical 1 on the AVR and then no audio on HDMI1.

Not really getting much help from this document.

Help would be gladly appreciated. Bought box around mid-May so my 30 days be close but perhaps they will do something considering I've only played with the player briefly to check out video but this is weird.
By any chance are you using ARC/eARC between your Denon AVR and Samsung display? This has been known to cause other audio streaming issues from the UB820/9000.

JVC NX7, Yamaha RX-A3080 (7.2.4 speaker layouts: Dolby Atmos & DTS:X), Panasonic UB820, Oppo 103D, ATV4K, Roku Ultra, TiVo Bolt Vox, Vandersteen Model 3 Signatures & VCC-1 Signature, SVS SB-2000 (2), Clark Synthesis Tactile Bass Transducers (2), Polk PSW-12

I believe on the Samsung, the ARC/eARC is on the HDMI4 which I'm not using. I have also disabled CEC on all the the devices and use my Harmony remote to turn the devices to the specified inputs.

I just tried a Microprocessor reset on my AVR and resetup all the inputs. I cannot get an audio except if the optical from the TV is being fed to the AVR; but what's weird is that if I try turning the volume up on the TV there's no audio so it seems like Video/Audio goes from the player to the TV, the audio goes via the optical link to the receiver and I get audio input to the receiver but if I go player to receiver on HDMI I get no audio and do a source selection to TV where optical input is I get sound.

also not sure why I'm experiencing weird problems with the menus exiting out - seems like a bug - like the menu times out and goes back even though I just went into the menu seconds before.

I have the same issue with my Marantz AV7702. I have the Panny going directly to the projector and sound to the Pre/Processor. I have the processor also connected to the projector. To get sound from the Panny, I have to disconnect the HDMI from the Pre/Processor to the projector. When it is disconnected, the sound from the Panny comes through. I cannot figure out why either. I have to do this every time. PIA.

Guys: Thanks so much for all your help. I have figured out the switching back to Gamma D problem with Netflix. It actually wasn't happening spontaneously. It happens if I change an Otimizer setting or toggle it on or off. If I leave the optimizer set to a fixed position, the JVC leaves the gamma, once I switch out of Gamma D.

I still have some things about which I'm confused though:

1.When playing a UHD disc with the 820 set to SDR/2020, I see a "Dynamic Range Conversion" banner; the JVC is only showing 8bit color, and when pressing the HDR Settings button, I don't have full access to all the HDR settings. I can't choose display type, or the environment settings: "Standard, Bright", etc. I can turn the Optimizer on or off through Options menu, or by holding the HDR Settings button, but I lose the full array of HDR options. Is this correct, or do I have something set wrong?

2.When streaming HDR (the 820 set to HDR/2020), the JVC input info is showing Deep Color greyed out with no bit info at all. Is this correct?

3.With a UHD disc or Netflix HDR, in every scene I have watched on the JVC, toggling the optimizer makes only the subtlest of differences. Is this normal?

4. and finally, the settings below the Optimzer: I'm assuming luminance, color, bandwidth and NR should be left at default, but what about the "Dynamic Range Adjustment"? With the JVC should that be left at default, or are there good reasons to adjust?

Thanks you so much,

Pip

Unlike custom curves, the UB820 does not know the luminance you’re getting on your screen, so you will need to use the Dynamic Range Adjustment control to adjust the overall brightness.

I'm wondering if it is due to my receiver being HDMI 1.3a or something like that although I'm only dumping audio to it not video.

Perhaps ARC will actually be a solution for me if end up going Panasonic DP-UB820 -> Samsung KS8000 -> Denon AVR-4310 to pick up the audio via ARC for now (as much as one of the previous posters said it could be the source of the problem) but it means I use up my 4th port on my TV for now. I currently have AVR->TV on HDMI1, Oppo 103 -> TV on HDMI2, Panasonic 820 -> TV on HDMI3 and then would have to go TV -> AVR on HDMI4

My plan was to upgrade to an HDMI2.1 based receiver in 2020 such as Denon AVR-X4600H by that time (and a BestBuy gift card burning to use on it) since the AVR will be the workhorse for a while and that would free up TV ports.


So do you have a useable solution as you say PIA? I only got this in the last month from Panasonic Canada directly so I will be asking on Monday if I don't have a solution by then and maybe asking for a refund as it doesn't work as advertised

looks like my AVR doesn't support ARC/eARC it seems as I looked online and saw a video describing plugging into the monitor port labelled ARC. The audio directly from the Panasonic player to the AVR should be working though as it should be able to decode DTS-HD, Dolby HD audio, etc. Perhaps they are not supporting the HDMI1.3a chipset.

Damn, I have to buy a new receiver to truly take advantage of this player perhaps but was going to wait for a HDMI2.1 receiver for more future proofing. I guess I can live with using the optical from the TV to the receiver for now and change my harmony program to use this input but I want to get an answer from Panasonic or someone on this forum before I rule this out.

Anyone what would cause no audio in the Netflix app? Sound works everywhere else even Amazon. It was working the other day but apparently stopped?

Sorry. PIA - Pain in the A#$. I have not found a solution other than to unplug the line from the Pre/Procesoor to the projector when watching the UB820.

Talking

I'm not sure if this will help any of the other posters up to this point but I found my solution where I'm doing the following:

Panasonic DP-UB820 (HDMI Audio Out) ------> Denon AVR4310CI (HDMI3)
Panasonic DP-UB820 (HDMI Video Out) ------> Samsung KS8000 (HDMI3 - no ARC port (would be HDMI4 but my receiver doesn't have ARC support)

Wait for it............







......Disable VIERA Link (a form of HDMI-CEC) on the Panasonic DP-UB820 (and I turned off HDMI-CEC on the Samsung KS8000 as well (I think it was off originally))


The Panasonic DP-UB820 user manual actually states this (I'm the type that hardly reads manuals but started to read because of this and came across this):

On Page 11:
≥ The HDMI AUDIO OUT terminal is not compatible with 4K output and the VIERA Link (> 25)

which refers to page 25 that didn't have much, but the instructions are on page 34:

System --> Display Settings --> Viera Link --> OFF

≥VIERA Link
Set to use “VIERA Link” function when
connected via HDMI cable to a device that
supports “VIERA Link”.
≥ Select “Off” when you do not want to use
“VIERA Link”


Perhaps my Samsung KS8000 TV supports VIERA Link (HDMI-CEC) but my Denon AVR4310CI likely doesn't. Maybe I'll buy a new AVR with HDMI 2.1 once I make the jump to buy a 4K faux or real projector as part of my dream for a home theatre not just a TV in my basement as part of our goal of finishing our basement and I can put active HDMI cables in the ceiling, etc.


This likely is the same issue with Netflix and other apps on the player that people mentioned above in the thread but that doesn't make sense that some people reported that Amazon worked but not Netflix but I'd likely use something else for the apps.


Hope this helps out other people






Panasonic should really put this in the FAQ and highlight this. Also the software should prevent HDMI Audio out from being activated if VIERA Link is enabled or at least put up a warning about this before you turn on either option (HDMI Audio OUT or VIERA Link).

My 820 is connected to my Yamaha RX-A 1080 Receiver with a proper 4K HDMI Cable, (receive 4K and HDR fine). Since I set it up in my movie room last month i keep having audio and video dropouts. At least 1 per movie. Happens on Ultra HD Blu Rays and regular. Very annoying. I believe I have everything setup correctly. I'm using a 75" Samsung Q6FN. All the HDMI Control stuff, (CEC, etc...) is off on TV, Receiver and 820 but it is hooked into the ARC HDMI Slot of the receiver. Anyone else have audio/video dropouts on their 820?

Nice gear.

I get no dropouts. Are you using certified premium cables? You need not spend a fortune on them (Monoprice, Mediabridge, others). It might be worth the purchase, as an experiment.

With your C8 that has Dynamic Tone Mapping I don't think you will see much difference using the UB820 instead of the Oppo.

Since you have the UB820 you may as well try its primary feature, the HDR Optimizer.

In HDMI settings,

Set 4K60 Output to 4K60 4:4:4 so you can watch Netflix HDR.
Set HDR Display Type to OLED.

When playing an HDR10 disc, press the HDR button on the remote. It will bring up a menu where you turn the Optimizer ON (or OFF).

The Optimizer will tone map to 1000 nits. Your C8 will see 1000 nit HDR content. I would still leave Dynamic Tone Mapping turned on in the C8.

Thanks

Should I assume that the lowest brightness I find acceptable gives me the best HDR effect?

I don't believe it's the cable. I didn't spend a ton of $ for it but it's an Audioquest 3ft Cinnamon HDMI Cable. One thing I did notice this morning after testing some movies out was on my PS4 when I play the 1st Star Trek Movie (2009), (Regular Blu Ray), it plays seamlessly into the Paramount Mountain Logo with the moving stars. On my 820 the video drops out for a second and abruptly starts on the Paramount Logo. It also says on the front 820 Display "High Clarity Sound On" when the disc starts. Firmware was updated last week. I've also noticed when the video/audio drops out the 820's front display still shows the movie time counting up. So the movie seems to be continually playing during the dropouts. I assume it's the blu ray player because I haven't noticed anything on my PS4 or Cable Box which are all connected to the receiver.

Change out the Audioquest Cinnamon cables. They have been problematic with UHD players. DO a search through the Oppo thread. Once they were changed out, everything worked fine. I use both Monoprice and Mediabridge and have 0 issues with dropouts.

Panasonic DP-UB820 -> Yamaha CX-A5100 -> Sony XBR-75X940C; Mediabridge 6' and 15' HDMI cables.

On my 820 the video drops out for a second and abruptly starts on the Paramount Logo. It also says on the front 820 Display "High Clarity Sound On" when the disc starts. Firmware was updated last week. I've also noticed when the video/audio drops out the 820's front display still shows the movie time counting up. So the movie seems to be continually playing during the dropouts. I assume it's the blu ray player because I haven't noticed anything on my PS4 or Cable Box which are all connected to the receiver.
I'd hope that an $80 cable (Amazon price) could match a $10 certified one.

Maybe you need to swap ends; Audioquest claims that the cable is directional. (That's a little, er, unusual for a passive cable. I'm desperately trying to be polite, here.)

Do you get similar glitches on other discs? I've had good luck with my 820 so far, but others have claimed that other players (like a Sony X800) are more reliable with slightly defective discs.

As I stated above I have an AudioQuest Pearl Cable from Receiver to TV. Is that ok. Or should I change both? The Cinnamon is easy but the Pearl is in my wall.

Gamma D sucks and you need to figure out what the real issue is (you should eventually at least load a premade curve but this is not the time since it isn’t the problem)

You are the only person I have heard having Gamma D issues on the 820. In fact, that was one of the reasons I bought one and I sold my HD Fury shortly afterward. I wonder why this is happening, it would be quite ironic if it was indeed an HDMI cable issue.

You said earlier your cable couldn’t do 4:4:4 so perhaps that’s an indication it is flaky with full bandwidth signals? I exclusively recommend this cable and I really wouldn’t screw around in this area. As soon as I went 4K my old “4K compatible” cable started causing issues. I replaced ALL my HDMI cables with the ones I recommended and haven’t had a single issue since. At least they are cheap. [IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/smilies/cool.gif[/IMG]
Actually Monoprice makes that cable in the slimline version also which I find better only because that cable is too thick imo for making tighter turns where it doesn’t make a solid connection and can work itself out of the port! Same performance!

I would change them all out imo AQ is so overpriced and overrated it’s not even funny. Go with the monoprice ones or something else, you get the same performance.

The Pearl seems to be very similar to the Cinnamon.

I'm surprised that those (relatively) expensive cables could be bad actors, but I'm unfamiliar with them. (I'm cheap.)

If you can do a temporary out-of-wall replacement for the Pearl, it may be worth a try.

Since you have the UB820 you may as well try its primary feature, the HDR Optimizer.

In HDMI settings,

Set 4K60 Output to 4K60 4:4:4 so you can watch Netflix HDR.
Set HDR Display Type to OLED.

When playing an HDR10 disc, press the HDR button on the remote. It will bring up a menu where you turn the Optimizer ON (or OFF).

The Optimizer will tone map to 1000 nits. Your C8 will see 1000 nit HDR content. I would still leave Dynamic Tone Mapping turned on in the C8.
Thanks for the help! I will try it tonight

I usually buy the cheaper cables. I don't buy into the Monster/AQ hoopla but my local Home Theater Shop gave me a discount on the Cinnamon and Pearl Cables because I was returning a scratched TV Stand and buying another. Long story short, I got three AQ cables for $35, total. I just ordered a 3ft Monoprice 4K Certified cable. I'll swap it out when it comes. Hopefully that does the trick.
The Pearl Cable I'll leave for now. The 820 is just sending the info to my receiver. Everything else works like it's supposed to.

I believe you turn off “ dynamic tone mapping” in the C8 when using the Panny HDR optimizer as recommended by Vincent of HDTVtest.

Can somebody who owns this player please confirm if it can play Dolby Atmos tracks contained in mkv files?

And does this automatically recognize and switch to Dolby Vision?
