I have an issue with the UBP-X800, the Sony VW600es, 18GB cables and x.v. colour.
As of two days ago, my setup ran through a Yamaha RX-V675 (hdmi v1.4) with a Monoprice 40ft Cabernet cable rated at 10GB/s.
The 4K player played the content and it looked fantastic except that when I clicked info/display on the 4k player remote, it showed that it was outputting in 1080p.
I switched the receiver and the cables to complete a HDMI 2.0 and 18GB chain. I now have the Yamaha RX-A670. Wow, the sound quality jump was incredible. However, the video looked worse. The display showed that it was indeed now outputting in 4K/24p but it looked radically less detailed. After playing with the settings, I noticed that the quality matched my old setup when I turned OFF x.v. colour on the projector.
So in essence, by reducing my settings, I matched the quality I was getting with HDMI 1.4 and 10Gb cables. Which looked incredible. I can't imagine my setup looking better than this. What on earth is wrong?
How does switching to HDMI 2.0 on all devices, and upgrading to monoprices installer grade active 40ft 18GB cable require me to turn off X.V colour which supposedly increases the number of available colours considerably?
