I used my Discover card for another price protection claim within 90 days. If it drops to $150 or lower, that's just gravy.

You can get it for under $120 if you buy it through Rakuten and use their BF20 coupon.

That may depend on what TV you have (presuming you plan to use Dolby Vision).

But they have different profiles support for DV. The LG OLED you have will work with either player. However, the LG player doesn't have a profile of DV that's compatible with Sony TVs. Hence my comment.

And what is your target price? It was brought to your attention back on 11/23 that you could get it for $118.40 (expired now). Apparently that wasn't good enough, but I doubt you can do better now.

its a little confusing. I was hoping a relative could buy it for a christmas exchange thing we do.. that web site was a little confusing. So i didnt want to bother



now it looks like I might just buy it on my own.

Could you explain why a Sony TV cant use an LG player for Dolby Vision?

My post more or less explained it already. Sony TV's require the low latency / Profile 5 version of Dolby Vision. The DV capable LG player can't output this type of Dolby Vision signal. So, even though both have Dolby Vision you won't get it when you combine the two.
