      Answer

      If your TV has HDMI 2.0a with HDCP 2.2 then yes, this will be worth it. Your TV may be 4K, and it may be able to upscale images to 4K, but the player will allow 4K PLUS UHD to be seen on your TV. Right now many apps will not stream UHD to your TV. The player will allow you to watch 4K UHD disks AND UHD from certain apps.

        Yes need to upgrade your subscription for Netflix to the 11.99 per month and for Amazon you have to be a prime member. The Amazon series ‘Alpha House’, BBC America’s ‘Orphan Black’, ‘Transparent’, and children’s series ‘Gortimer Gibbon’s Life On Normal Street’, while ‘Hand of God’, ‘Red Oaks’, ‘Mozart In The Jungle’, ‘Bosch’, and ‘The After’ are in 4k.

          Answer

          You should still be getting the full 4K potential from your tv. Make sure to go in and customize it so that you have the highest resolution as the default and, just as important, turn off the 24fps option on both machines. This way, you should get either 50 or 60fps with your 4K, which is optimal. Hope this helps.

              Yes it plays the real 4K discs but I couldn't tell any difference between a 4K disc on this player and a regular blu-ray upscaled.

                  Answer

                  You can turn the HDR on and off for your HDMI inputs. Using your tv remote press menu, select picture, and then picture options. In this sub listing you'll select the title "HDMI UHD Color". This is where you can turn the HDR on and off. You'll need to unplug your HDMI cable from the tv for the reset required to implement this change.

                  I have an older receiver, will the optical audio output of this player provide full 5.1 surround sound?   (5 Answers)

                    Answer

                    It should, although if your receiver is older, your best bet is to not use the optical output but instead use the second HDMI output that the player has, which is specifically designed for older receivers that cannot process 4K HDR video signals. (I am an audiophile and have tried both; I actually prefer using a hi-fi HDMI cable dedicated to sound as opposed to the optical cable in this situation.) Hope this has been of some help.

                    Will it work without hdr?   (7 Answers)

                    My TV does not have hdr. It's a Vizio m60. So does that mean it's pointless to buy this player? Will it work without it and still play 4k movies?

                      Answer

                      If you are planning on upgrading your television in the future, you will most likely purchase a television with HDR and the player will then be able to show-off all of its bells and whistles. In the meantime, I have tested mine on several monitors, some HDR compatible, some not, and it definitely improves the look and quality of discs regardless. If you have a 4K television, the player will play and display the new format (4K HDR) of Blu Rays...you just won't see the added HDR element on your television. It will look stunning, but it won't be the 'full potential.' If you are looking for a step up in disc quality and may upgrade your tv within a year or so, this player is definitely not pointless. You'll be impressed.

                        Yes, it will output 4k just not HDR. In all honesty without HDR it is not worth the purchase yet. You can't really see the 4K difference if your more than 6 ft away. The true upgrade is the HDR. It is a nice player but Blue rays look just as good.
