On Panasonic DMP 8000 4K Blu Ray player should it be on just when watching 4k content or older blu rays as well?
Thanks for the help. I'm trying to learn here.
Unfortunately, the problem with running everything through an AVR with only 1 HDMI cable going to the TV, although very convenient, is that you can't have separate settings for your different input devices.
The only device that you have connected right now that require the "HDMI UHD Color" setting to be ON all the time is your UHD Blu-ray player (it HAS to be ON for this one - although regular Blu-rays should still be fine with it OFF).
As for your other devices, it only needs to be ON for UHD HDR content.
As you've experienced yourself, having it ON all the time can sometimes cause video and audio issues with certain devices.
You basically have 2 choices:
1- Only turn it ON when viewing UHD HDR content and leave it OFF the rest of the time.
2- Connect some of you devices (e.g. your UHD Blu-ray player) to a separate input on the TV's OCB. Then it can have its own separate settings.
Hope this helps.
