That was the dilemma I faced and for me the better option was to sell my 3050 and get a 3070.
If you’re just looking to play Dolby Vision via physical disk then I’d make sure I got a player with 2 hdmi outputs and stick with the 2050. The internal apps for Netflix etc are a good option so no real need to worry about that. If you have an Apple TV and have lots of iTunes movies then that’s a different story.

My problem with using two HDMI outputs, one to the TV for video and the other to the AVR for audio only is that you lose the AVR's information display on the TV. For me, anyway, that is important.
