Good and bad.
I watched the 2 Star Trek UHD movies in succession. HDR with high lamp and Auto Iris at -5.
HDR was more obvious in the first with all the bright white light explosions and the whites of the bridge. In the second HDR was more subtle. The longer I watched the more I started to notice.
I don't have an Atmos capable system but the True HD 7.1 audio on Into Darkness was pretty amazing. I can only imagine what it might sound like in Atmos.
The Bad: The lamp in my RS500 may have died at 5 minutes before the end of Into Darkness. I first thought it was a HDMI cable dropout. But then I noticed the red Standby button flashing and amber Lamp button flashing. Shut off the Samsung player and shortly after I heard the fan slow down. The Standby button eventually stopped flashing. Now I have the Warning light and Standby light with the Lamp light flashing still. Not sure if I should pull the power plug or just let it cool down a bit first.
I had 481 hours on the lamp before tonight's session.
