What do you think about Panasonic ub 820 setup?

In my view? Panasonic ub820 is not far off to oppo 203 settings compare to very basic setup settings on sony ubp x700, LG up970 and LG ubk90!

There is more settings when put 4k or blu ray disk put in player next message soon!

I'm afraid there is no Netflix or Amazon Prime apps at this minutes, till next update from panasonic! I see their website say Netflix and Amazon will be update? But when no idea? Sorry can't show you!

I have watch 2 4k and 1 blu ray films? No freeze or blur or judder? Everything run smooth with beautiful clear HDR films with 4 different brightness setting by HDR SETTING button. No noise from drive as it quite where I'm sitting is 3 metre away!
I'm keeping it as I'm happy with panasonic ub820? Look forward dolby vision and HDR10+ update

After 2 days off work and testing panasonic ub820 and sony x700? Watching 4 4k and 5 blu ray on both players! On sony x700 with update dolby vision, 3 off 4k freeze half way though films and 1 blu ray too. That not good at all! With sony bug in dolby vision always on in settings screen and blu ray on dolby vision and don't look right at all make them too dark! So turn dolby vision off in settings and it back to normal? As far I say sony had made a big cock up in their software and hardware? Why x700 when x800 is better and it a shame no dolby vision? I can't tell the difference in either HDR or Dolby vision as both look the same? I have see LG ubk90 and I can tell the difference in HDR and Dolby vision! Make no sense with sony! In my views sony made bad decisions doing this down grade to x700 compare good x800?

Panasonic ub820. No.problem so far no freeze at all or noise or any other problem in hardware or software at all? Colour and black is far better compare to sony x700. Just have to wait for update on dolby vision? The way I have see on YouTube in ub9000 can see difference in HDR and dolby vision? Im sure the same way to ub820. So far I'm happy with panasonic ub820.

I see lot of reviews forums as lot people not happy with sony x700 and some say it okay? Okay? How can it be okay? It not, as far I concerned that sony had let lot of people down with their promises? Yes sony do make brilliant 4k tv! How many people had complain about android that are so slow and put up with it? Sony had not done nothing about it? Seem sony not listen to people at all? It really sad the way sony doing at the moment making bad decisions!

I have now return back sony x700 and keep panasonic ub820! Ub9000 is too much money for £900 just 4k blu ray players?

The 820 autoplays a disc when you close the tray
is there any way to disable autoplay?

Don't have a disc in when you close the tray unless you want it to play...;)
It will also autoplay at power on. Both cannot be disabled AFAIK.

I power on using eject for this reason unless I know I want to watch whatever disc may be in the player.

That's a bit of a bugger then
I also power on using eject
Just remember as I'm at work! It will autoplay if put disc in the tray! But to stop autoplay? Just press home on remote control and this will take to home screen.

You leave discs in your player... :eek::rotfl:

Why not, I like to live dangerously. I thought it took at least a week of them being out of their secure sterile case before they caught disc rot. Please don't tell me I'm wrong :eek:
Next you'll be telling me that playing discs all the way through on FF, if you've left them in the player for too long, so that the laser can burn off all the disc rot bugs doesn't work either...:(

Never have, never will, unless I fall asleep and the AV shuts down on timer, it's fine to FF to aid disc rot though, just don't RW as it reverses the process o_O

micope21: TKS for ALL the GREAT info on the 820, it is now a Candidate to replace my older Panny BD Player......PLEASE....tell me something concerning what you shared on the HDR Settings Screen, I believe the options for the owner to choose were, are you using an OLED, or some form of LCD....I would be using, at least until I can buy a 4K, my 2014 Samsung Plasma 64F8400....do you know what I would select that that would be "kosher"? TKS

Hi. You need 4k HDR TV in order to work to select oled or super high luminance LCD or middle & high luminance LCD or basic luminance LCD and projector? Panasonic manual book say if LCD recommendations middle & high luminance LCD? But it depend how your tv look right? No HDR TV? Won't need select setting cos it will automatic straight to SDR bt 709!

The Panasonic can convert UHD discs to output SDR/BT2020 if your display can accept that signal.

Otherwise, it will do SDR/Rec709 easily. Upscaled to 4k or in 1080p.

Could I ask a favour? Could anyone with either a UB820 or a UBK90 please measure as accurately as possible the width of the box? The spec sheet for the UBK90 says 'approx' 430mm. I am literally short of about 3mm to accommodate this - my Marantz AVR is 435mm and I have 862 width to play with (no, I can't stack!). Sadly my choice of player might depend on this, or I might have to go for the UB420 and forego DV! I won't go for the Sony, as it seems to be a bit of muddle when it comes to DV. Thanks.

For the UB820 I make it 428mm.
There might be another 1mm less with the thickness of the clip on the end of the measuring tape (and a tiny bit of a gap between the clip and the tape itself). So could be 427mm. But even with that you would be doing case to case contact to force it into the space.

You're gonna need a bigger boat or put your AVR on a diet...;)

Although this probably should be asked in the owners thread, both the Panasonic website and the manual for the player state the width as 430mm.

Fair point - I'll move it over.
I've checked what the specs say, but never sure whether this is actual, nominal, approximate, or the dimension that it will comfortably fit into, hence the question.
