Can I use hdmi 2-4 with this player and take full advantage of Dolby Vision once the firmware is updated on the player or would this require hdmi 1?
Philips BDP7502/F7 4K Ultra HD Wifi Blu-ray Player, Dolby Vision Ready
My answer was in reference to the line in your OP referring to "take full advantage of Dolby Vision". The choice is yours and "post #639
" was pretty clear....use HDMi 1 if you want 4K
with HDR/DV or use HDMi 2-4 for either [email protected]
with HDR or [email protected]
If you take a look at the manual for your UHD player ::https://www.download.p4c.philips.com...f7_dfu_aen.pdf
On page 14 there is a chart outlining all of the different output options/specs.
and then on page 27 there is this note:
• If this unit is connected to a non-HDCP 2.2 compatible device, HDR signals will be dynamically converted and
output in 2K resolution. Some discs may not be played correctly.
• If this unit is connected to a non-4K/60p (Color space 4:2:0) compatible device, and a 60p video is played, HDR
signals will be dynamically converted and output.
• If this unit is connected to a non-4K/60p compatible device, HDR signals will be dynamically converted.
• If this unit is connected to a non-HDR compatible device, HDR signals will be dynamically converted and output.
Some discs may output images in 2K resolution or may not be played correctly
Your particular player may require you to manually select some output settings to ensure you get HDR/DV delivered through Hdmi 2-4. You may have to go into the video settings on your player ( hit the "home" button, then select "Setup" and select "video") and under HDR output, specifically select Dolby Vision. If you leave it on auto, your player may just try to send the 4k SDR signal. Likely you should set the "Color Space" setting to YCbCr 4:2:2. Also make sure that both "Hdmi video" and "24p output" are set to auto.
That should allow you to have 4k playback with HDR (Dolby Vision) while connected to HDMI ports 2-4.
