How do you manually switch zones with this mod installed? It says the zone switch is automatic for DVDs.
So to answer my own question, I was able to reach them by phone:

While the player is in standby you press 1, 2 or 3 on the remote to set the respective BR region.

They also told me that for the LX500 and certain other players they currently don't offer a DIY kit — you need to send the player in to them to perform the mod. It takes a fairly advanced tech/soldering skill level to install the mod, and they've had a lot of cases of customers having to send various players to them to undo damage they've done and install a mod properly.

So now they *don't* offer a DIY kit for the LX500? That page was changed from the last time I viewed it.

Question....
This may be late, moot, or just dumb, but are they still producing the lx800?
I only recently learned about it, and it's not on Pioneer's website, Best Buy doesn't carry it...does it exist??
Thanks.

There are a lot of items that don’t get released in the US. Panasonic still makes TVs but they don’t sell them in the US anymore.

I’d confirm the power on any LX800’s listed on eBay before you buy as they might be European models.

Vincent's review is up. Are Dolby Vision's HDMI issues ever going to be fixed? I can't imagine spending this much on a UHD player to only get incorrect picture levels/clipping with Dolby Vision.

BTW, Vincent's review shows the LX500's abysmal (un-watchable) HDR-to-SDR conversion, and compares it to the Panasonic UB9000, which does it properly.

Lastly, is there any difference between audio/video quality while running a single HDMI cable connection compared to running 2 HDMI (Pioneer main and sub HDMI outs) cables from the Pioneer to the AVR and TV? Thank you

Yes, there’s just a small difference in the treble region when you do the split method. It sounds a dash warmer. But I decided to go with the single cable route. I prefer to be able to have access to the receiver’s onscreen displays than to switch inputs at the TV.

If you have a Pioneer Elite receiver with PQLS, the difference will be imperceptible because jitter is kept way low.

Onkyo & Pioneer Corp. regrets to inform its customers that a firmware update adding HDR10+ support to the UDP-LX800 and UDP-LX500 Universal Disc Players, which was first announced in December 2018, will be postponed until Autumn 2019 due to an unavoidable development delay.
We would like to sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused to customers that are currently using or are considering using these products.
We will post the firmware update information on product page of UDP-LX800 and 500 when development has been finished. We deeply appreciate your ongoing patience, understanding, and support.

Disappointing to say the least!!!!! Got/bought my first HDR 10+ blu ray, "Bohemian Rhapsody" the other day.
Glad to finally hear something though, rather than being left hanging, as we have been for so long now.
Thanks lebellium to post this.
I hope Autumn 2019 means Autumn.
God Bless,
Wayne

Question Zero Signal

On the rear panel (LX500), there’s a socket labelled Zero Signal, which is designed to ground audio and video signals and help maintain signal quality as it passes through the player into your AV receiver. I was told: "Simply connect one end of a standard analogue interconnect to the Zero Signal socket on the player and attach the other to an analogue audio or video socket on the rear of your home cinema amp." Question is, where do I connect it on my Yamaha RX-A3070 and do I need to change any settings? Thank you

Also, is a standard analogue interconnect cable the same as Monolith's by Monoprice digital audio coaxial cable?

^^^^^^^^^ Hi Purplerain, I am not sure I know exactly the answer to your questions, but will give it a shot as I hate to see anybody left hanging out there to dry.
Your instruction manual is the place to find the answers I reckon, but I "think" all you are looking for is an electrical connection between your Pioneer and your receiver to get them sharing a common ground. Any unused RCA jack on the receiver can be plugged into, with an old interconnect laying around. Is this the same as the Mono, Mono cable you describe? No, not exactly, had to look it up on Amazon to know what you were talking about for sure, not all of us are Monoprice knowledgeable. But in the description there, Amazon, of the cable it describes what it is made for, 'digitalness', and then says "it can also be used for composite video and other line level RCA signals".
So I reckon that is a YES to your question.
I hope that helps,
God Bless,
Wayne

Hi - I connected the Zero Signal port on the LX500 to a spare analogue input on my NAD. I just used a standard RCA cable similar to the cables I have used with connecting the LX500 for my CD connection. Hard to tell if it has made a significant difference although playing CDs the sound is great and I had a spare RCA cable - so why not - George

I am pretty enthusiastic about the audio quality of the 500. Particularly SACD. Not missing the oppo at all.

Thank you to Nick at Audio Advice.

If I remember correctly, that option is best utilized if you have a Pioneer Elite AVR or Pre.

"Zero Signal Terminal
The Zero Signal Terminal is a Pioneer-original feature dedicated to tuning audio and video quality without signal transmission. By connecting the Zero Signal Terminal with the audio/video input terminal of an AV receiver etc., the reference level (GND) of the audio/video signals is aligned between the two devices, and the potential difference is suppressed, allowing a precise and high-quality signal transmission."

The image used on the website of an Elite AVR, but who knows, could be used with another brand AVR?

Hi folks been very interested in the 500 so much so that I put my much loved Panasonic ub9000 up for sale.love it so much I pulled it from sale and ordered the lx-500 anyway. You can never have to many lol. Thought they might be a great backup for each other. Looking forward to comparing. Unfortunately I am using a Samsung n950 soundbar which is not terrible but no way can it do justice to both players audio. But always a big pioneer fan.

After watching Vincent’s review I’m glad I’m using source direct.
As most tv’s in my case have better upscaling compared to the LX-500

Set up the new 500 today. Love it so far. Tried a few bd and hdr movies after several adjustments I see very little if any difference in pq. I think even though I am using a soundbar the audio on the 500 seemed a little warmer and detailed over the panny. I played around with about 6 discs only one slight issue so far a short audio drop out on a Blu ray Dolby vision. I replay the same part and same drop cleaned the disc no drop. Other than that all is well I think I am covered for a while.
