Slightly off topic for the player, but I didn't realise every device "in the chain" had to be DV compatible....my 49UH850V is, and obviously the UP970 is, but my Onkyo AV receiver....?

Well, hurrah, as it turns out Onkyo are including my receiver (NR656) in the DV update, coming later this year :)

Onkyo | Light and colours as intense and vibrant as in nature: Dolby Vision – the new video standard on home cinema receivers from Pioneer and Onkyo
You can do what I do in the meantime and use HDMI double connection

Just now tested my third Dolby Vision title: Resident Evil Vendetta.
Blacks are as inky as they get on my oled tv, player runs quiet.

High all just purchased this player again, but was wondering what the output should read if you have it connected to a av receiver. Due to the limited display options RGB OR YCC on the setup was curious if anybody managed to get info stating it was a 4.4.4 signal. Have a denon avr-x3300w and on the info it states the input signal is BT 2020 YCC at 12 bit colour.

BT2020 at 12 bit colour indicates a 4K UHD source being played

Runing f/w version 70542C, thought the refresh rate was fixed to show 24/60 mine still shows only 24/50:facepalm: W.T.F is going on. Only bought this again as it was super cheap and it has a build date of June.

Think you will find only the US version shows 24/60. That is the last fimware prior to the DV firmware, LG's notes were "security fixes".

Mine shows 24/60 with DV firmware installed.
Is there any time when 60Hz should be selected? I keep mine at 24Hz all the time

Yes but you are based in the US, European versions don't get the 60Hz option with the DV or other firmware currently.

I prefer keeping my player at 24Hz either way
The 60hz option is for watching HDR content at 60f/p/s, when viewing content on you tube at any other framrate, motion produced is very choppy. Here in Europe because we dont have the 60hz option only 50hz, motion seen with long panning shots is terrible.

I thought the 24Hz/60Hz option only affects discs, not streaming content

It affects both disc and streaming content, this is one of the many flaws the player has. Unlike say the Panasonic which has a separate option for 60hz

Wonder Woman arrived so hope LG send fixed player back next week! This dv update saga has been bad for LG. If I had not paid 280 for mine then would've been more upset. Hopefully they don't cancel dv for player at all as it seems they can't seem to get it right.

This player also has a separate option for choosing either 24Hz or 60Hz

As you have already been informed not in Europe, we have 24Hz or 50Hz.

Exactly, so your player should give you an option to select either 24 or 50
As already explained it does, but no 60Hz option!
