If I set it to 1080p how will that affect 2160p content? Will it downscale/downconvert it or have no effect at all?

From what I've pieced together it will downscale 4K content - you don't want to do that.

That is why it is a pain in the a** - you have to keep adjusting the setting depending on the source material.

I've ended up running a dedicated BD player for 1080p BDs - just so I can leave the Samsung at 2160p and not have to remember to change/check it every time I put a disk in.

Finally, for me I think my display does a better job up upconverting 1080p than the player - I can see a difference - that is why I do this. You may not have that issue and can leave the Samsung on 2160p.

LoDD, I think I remember you as an early adopter back during the format war. I jumped in too, but only after a dual-format player was released. Anyways, I'll buy again, but will wait and see what other 4K hardware providers come up with.

Ok, so it would do me no good since my Samsung UHD player is connected to an LG OLED TV.

There was an update last night on my K8500. Anyone know what it was for? Vidity from FandangoNow still doesn't work.

As mentioned it may be setting the stage in the player to get it ready for the Netflix HDR update. Personally, I wish they would add a bitrate meter.

Listen up, studios! Dolby Atmos Lite™ print-outs must stop!!

I just got the Samsung UHD player back from the shop and just testing FandangoNow and not getting HDR. Is it no longer coming from them or do I need to change some settings such as:

HDMI Color Format or
HDMI Deep Color

Leave Deep Color on the player off. HDMI at component 4:4:4 out (not RGB).

Standard user video setting.

Some apps are still not updated to HDR. Amazon is, but not Netflix and a few others.

Done, but it didn't make a difference as far as HDR and FandangoNow. It's probably an issue with them since HDR is not ever consistent with them.

No discussion on this player on this thread for over a year but I just got a new update last night. Glad to see they're still sending us updates on this player which will be 2 years old in February 2018.
