Just like soaring used car prices.

One of my needs is quiet playback.

Thanks
To specifically address your quiet concern, the 820 and 9000 both have internal fans, and some users in this thread have had fan noise comments. More so the 820 over the 9000. Others have replied they don’t have noise issues with their 820’s. (I have no horse in this race as I got an Oppo early on.) There doesn’t seem to be a consensus on if ‘noisy’ units are a defect and not the norm.

Some thoughts. Make sure the player is on a noise dampened surface like wood or such. Some glass shelves can be problematic. 4K discs spin much faster than HD discs, and then some could be sensitive to certain fan sound frequencies. Noise dampening feet or a dampening panel can lower noise in certain applications.

I guess it also depends on how loud the volume is on the movies you watch.
Many members here feel the 820 is the better player for the price point that includes Dolby Vision and the HDR10 optimizing tone mapper. Good luck.

Aye, my 820 rattled my glass tv stand something chronic until I got an “isolation platform” for it (a piece of slate with some rubber balls cut in half for feet).

The player is not “complete junk” as your issue sounds quite unique (and maybe your player is a lemon or maybe it’s your LG). Have you ever successfully sent DV to your LG with a different player? Can you factory reset the player? Is your LG professionally calibrated? If not try restoring it to its original state and go from there. Are you able to try your player on another DV capable TV (a friend, an electronics store, etc). And just in case, try a different HDMI cable.

Default 820 movie image is too wide

Need your help please.

I installed a Panasonic DP-UB820P Blu Ray player and connected it to a Denon AVR 3700 via 4K HDMI cable. The Denon connects to a Samsung LSP9T via 4K HDMI.

Panasonic home settings image fills the screen perfectly. The infamous FBI warning screen shows perfectly before the movie. However, when the movie starts (4K Blu Ray, Blu Ray or DVD) the image is several inches wider than the screen.

When I play the same 4k Blu Ray, Blu Ray or DVD on my PS5 the image fits the screen perfectly. I also have no problems when streaming from my 4K Firestick.

Panasonic 820 settings:

Resolution: Auto
4K60P Output: 4K/60p(4:4:4)
24P Output: Off
HDMI Video: Auto
HDMO Audio: Audio Only
Dolby Vision: Off (My Samsung projector doesn't support it)
HDR10+: On


I am sure there is a setting on the 820 to fix this but I've yet to figure it out.

Suggestions? Your help is greatly appreciated!

This should work

My sub is placed on top of these to minimise vibration thanks to poor insulation of my walls.

Managed to get BestBuy to price match this yesterday when it was still in stock.

This will hopefully be a good upgrade to my Sony X800 since that machine seems to constantly freeze on me, forcing me to crouch under my console unit to unplug it and restart.

The Panny player literally has no aspect ratio controls/settings. At all. But are you talking about black letterbox bars or something else?

Try changing the resolution to straight 4K. That might help. Or it's possible it's in your Denon's Settings. As Geoff said, there is no aspect ratio setting on the Panny Player. It's either an issue with the Denon's settings or your Samsung's TV settings.

I would also try plugging your player straight into your TV to see if it changes the image. If it does, you know it's your TV. If it doesn't, you know it's probably something to deal with the receiver.

Hello, not much to add, but I just want to thank those who monitor and reply off this thread. I read through many many pages before I bought my UB820 and was happy I did not need to ask a single question since they were all answered by people here.

WOW! Great price. Too bad I missed it. I had to return my 820 because it was defective. Stupid Walmart would not send me a replacement.

My 820 was annoyingly loud and ran constantly. I posted a video on here and the majority said it was defective so I sent it back. I plan to pick up a 9000 before the price increase.

I say go for the 820 if you can find it on sale. If you want the better construction then go 9000 which should be a lot quieter.

Fan on UB9000 is just about completely silent. So is the transport.

For any Canadians on here, Visions has open box ub9000 for $988 cad, shipped. Given these are not available in store I am guessing they are from the distributor. They also have open box ub820 for $398 cad, but in store only (and oddly with an end date of June 30).

Just have to say, I got my player yesterday and found it a breeze to set up and use.
Slightly zippier than my Sony X800 and played every disc I threw at it so far.

I even think it looks sharper and has slightly more pop than the Sony.

Used HDR optimizer and noticed it did wonders to soften the brightness of Close Encounters.

Hope it doesn't develop any freezing issues as time goes on.

Had the first Quasar VHS HiFi and the player’s spinning heads would cause the glass tabletop to buzz like crazy.
