    So, i have a sony kd65xe9005, a panasonic ubd300 4k player and a Yamaha Rx-v479 amp.

    It is all connected thru amp with 1 connection from the blu ray and 1 from the tv (amongst others)

    4k plays fine when watching Netflix or prime on tv and if i put a regular blu ray in also no prob, however if i stick a 4k disc in it moans about 2.2 problems and downscales to 1080 :(

    So do i have any practical options or am i looking at dropping another £400?

    I have regular 5.1 and am not interested in atmos

    The RX-V479 supports HDCP 2.2, as does your DMP-UB300 (and TV), so you should not need to drop £400 on any more electronics.

    Check the firmware levels on all devices. Also verify that you are using certified premium HDMI cables no longer than 3m.

    looks like I had plugged my 4k player into the wrong port on the Yammy, a legacy of my Blu Ray player being plugged there.

    So the resolution saved you £400 and you can take your wife out for dinner. :)
