Got mine from Fry's it was the only one they had in stock.
How do you check the firmware ? So you have to send it back to update firmware ?
Doing some more testing last night, now the picture controls work with HDR On and Off !
I must have been doing something wrong before. Checked the CD and the manual is there. Did see a couple picture adjustments on the manual that I don't have. At least so far !
I finally got everything in its permanent resting place last night on my rack, projector, A lens, amps, Oppo 203. Bottom line.... It's not going back !!
After getting everything adjusted, brought the family in for a viewing of Mad Max and Revenant 4K Blu-Rays and results Ta Da........ : JAWS ON THE FLOOR !!!!
We ended up watching both movies end to end ! Now that's what I'm talking about ! Detail and Color amazing ! Soundtracks whoa !!
The whole notion of lacking contrast and color on the HK2288 is wrong, I was wrong. It does have it and I don't need measurements to prove it. It's more than enough for me.
At least for watching 4K BluRay HD HDR10 encoded movies I don't see how it can get much better than this for the money I paid, for less than $2K its ridiculously good.
As a side note the Oppo 203 performs beautifully as a Pre-Amp. Running 7.1 analog output to input on the Earthquake Cinenova Grand Amps and then to Monitor Audio Gold Reference speakers with the Oppo doing the DTS-HD 7.1 decoding works great. It was without a doubt the best sound I ever had in my theater. The Soundtrack on both Revenant and Mad Max are awesome on their own.
If you can't tell I am thoroughly enjoying my new system !
