So, I’m still trying to make UHD pop on the 800m2.
I have the HD blueray version of Cap America and the 4k UHD version. The Oppo 105 plays the HD Blueray directly into hdmi4 on the Sony 900e; the 800m2 plays the UHD version directly into hdmi2. Both inputs have the same settings (including enhanced hdmi). Both pictures are just amazing.
Picked the final scene when Cap America wakes up in modern Times Square. Switch between the hdmi inputs. Cannot tell a difference. TV display says both are 4k inputs (Oppo upscales). I had assumed UHD colors would really come alive. Looks the same as HD blueray. Still a great picture, just not noticeably better.
Tried the same test with Jumanji. Great picture, not noticeably better.
Unless I can find the magic setting not sure why I’m keeping the 800m2.
