We have subtitles. When you have subtitles you don’t need CC. In EU, CC is an optional feature; in NA, CC (subtitle) is mandated since (approx) 20+ years ago as part of the Disabilities Act.

NA receive quick start because you know patient we are. We are also not really into taking responsibility for our own fault, thus auto shut off becomes a feature.

If you pause the 9000 does a screen saving feature comes automatically after few minutes, like Oppo? I think Oppo uses the screen saving feature after only a minute. I never timed them, but I know it's pretty quick...good thing too, best.

* The Sony 800 remains in pause; bad for OLED displays.

You are a North American (Canadian citizen), so you have Closed Caption Settings, Quick Start Settings, and nobody has Gracenote Settings anymore with the latest 338 firmware.

MEB must be from another continent, a better one because he has Auto Standby.

Screen Saver only kicks in after 5 minutes from home menu or if you’re playing audio only. Pause does not kick in the screen saver. Another reason they shut it off as they are a major OLED seller.

Yup. We north Americans canít wait for an extra 5 seconds, thatís why we need quick start. I donít use it because Iím also a Chinese Dutch. I do everything to penny pinch as quickstart consumes more electricity.

I too don't use the Quickstart, because I'm French and Irish.

* The 9000 does it have a Quickstart function?

New Yorkers use and like Quick Start, we're adapted to our environment.

And by the way, with the latest firmware update (Sony X800) the Gracenote Settings feature is gone.

And you don't have Closed Caption Settings, but we do.
So the features are slightly different depending of the country.

* I use my 205 more often so I don't have that issue.
With the X800 used occasionally, it shuts down automatically when on standby after roughly fifteen/twenty minutes or so; I've never chronometered it.
Only once I panicked in life; the first day I came up.
Am I glad I own the EU models for my Sony players.

Disabilities Act; do you have a spare copy hanging around?

* The Quick Start feature can create more problems than it can solve.
The Vikings never used that tool, and over the years won more battles without it, by using big swing hammers and swords made of chrome steel.

** It sometimes wrecks havoc with the Internet connection and the apps.

RE disabilities act regarding CC/subtitles. In the mid 90s it started with TVs 20Ē or larger should have CC decoder and all video materials to have CC. The it follows ith ALL tvs should have CC decoder.

Thank you for being "green" and reducing your carbon footprint so I can use your carbon to allow my UB9000 to spin aimlessly for hours (as soon as Panasonic fixes the auto shut-off).

For those interested in the alliance between JVC and Panasonic to develop special custom modes for JVC's NX5, NX7 and the NX9 when connected to Panasonic's UB9000 here's JVC's press release.

The questions that remains unanswered are:

1. Which colour profiles on the JVC
2. How to set the player and the projector to make this happen?

I’ve had that pdf since 2 weeks ago. When you mentioned you’ll disclose something I thought it will answer those two questions

Expanding the HDR color gamut is just one of the new features of the two new Custom Modes 5 and 6 that is now available for upgrading all JVC NX5, NX7 and NX9 projectors. From what I was told it's the BT2020 and or P3 color gamuts that are encoded on the 4K HDR and now they can near perfectly map the color gamut at every luminance level and display 100% of the P3 gamut.

this is just one of the new studio mastered image reconstruction advancements that we are now able to openly discuss on the collaboration between these two great companies.

Robert, still unclear here. That press release is also IMO pointless.

So customers have to update their projector’s firmware update first? Which preset does what? What settings need to be setup on the ub9000? Will the switching be done automatically?

So it's basically yet another HDR remapping mode that preserves the P3 gamut at all brightness levels, specifically for this projector range.

Here's the scoop.

1st, yes, you will need to download the new firmware version 2.10 from JVC's site and save it to a USB stick. Here's the link to JVC's projector update firmware.

Here's how the two Custom Profile Modes will work:

In Panasonic's UB9000 HDR Optimizer menu when you select "High Luminance Projector" the player will tone map all streamed and disc content perfectly following the PQ EOTF at every luminance level throughout the HDR dynamic tonal range. So 1,000Nit, 4,000Nit and even 10,000Nit content will be perfectly tone mapped to 500Nits.

The same happens when you set your UB9000 HDR Optimizer to "Basic Luminance Projector" and the player outputs 350Nit peak luminance.

Now here's where you can choose the best picture element(s) you want for your room's environment, your personal preference or even a particular preference for one title or type of film, like action and adventure films or restored classic B&W or color films. So here's what you can expect to see in your JVC projector fed by Panasonic's UB9000:

When you select High Luminance Projector, 500Nit max you will see improvement in the overall image brightness. Well matched for rooms that have some ambient light and for video content viewing, and also Hollywood movies with a lot of high contrast scenes.

The Basic Luminance Projector 350Nit max prioritizes every element of color reproducibility. You will see all of the color detail that's in the wide color gamut unique to HDR.

Happy to see us get into some of the details behind this very cool and exciting*collaboration between two premium companies’ engineers to bring us closer to how the creator finished the master HDR image.

Thanks Robert, JVC finally sent me the info too.

The final mystery is whether we have to switch modes manually or it will switch automatically after the initial set up

This will also be annoying because the projector perhaps will automatically switch to HDR and then the user needs to go to the menu and change the colour profile to one of those two profiles.
