  1. Unfortunately area coding on discs still exists (though not for UHD BD discs). Many DVD and BD players do already come with multi region DVD capability already enabled (or at least can be enabled with a sequence of button pressings - specific to the brand/model of the player itself). Note, usually for DVDs only, not BD discs as well. However, the Sony UBP-X800 is not one of those that can be simply enabled (as far as I know) - but can be hardware modified...... at a cost. An options is to get a second player that is already (or can be turned on) multi region enabled. One I recommend is the Laser brand BLU-BD3000 player. It is already multi region DVD enabled as well as multi region BD. (Will not play UHD BD discs and is not a "smart" device with apps etc. but will play media files and connect home network as well as to internet for software updates etc.) DVDs from any region will play automatically. BDs from various regions will have to be manually selected per region per disc - but can be toggled back and forth an unlimited number of times. Their BD3000 player is less than $100, but can often be on sale for 30% less from Good Guys, BIG W, JB etc. However, it does mean an extra device and remote control etc. They also have a cheaper multi region DVD only player (as do other brands). Hope this helps and you find a suitable solution. Cheers.
  2. Hi Tweaky, thanks for your response and info. Yes, it is a crazy situation. I had read elsewhere other messages about the HDMI HDR setting options including Dynamic, Static and Off as options available after their HDR10+ update but I am thinking ("hoping") that via handshaking this depends on the HDMI device actually being capable of outputting the data (to trigger these options). As my (Sony X800) player is not capable of dynamic data (neither Dolby Vision nor HDR10+) the options may be restricted to only Off and On (as currently shown on my TV after the update). If, however, the options are independent of whatever device is connected (or not) to HDMI input then, unfortunately, it seems our TVs are not yet HDR10+ capable. Perhaps if someone with an HDR10+ capable player AND has updated their TV software AND has an HDR10+ disc (not necessarily easy to tell if disc has it or not from what I have read) can verify if our TV will have these setting options and thus display HDR10+ or not would be appreciated. PS. Hopefully your eye problem (not related to head butting ladders?) is resolved soon and you can see clearly now/soon to fully enjoy your home theatre.
  3. Hi Wags. New software update for our TVs just released. Are you able to verify if HDR10+ is included ? (I don't have an HDR10+ player to confirm it myself). Cheers.
  4. My EX780 updated itself to latest software 4.232 today. Can anyone verify this includes the HDR10+ upgrade? The Panasonic site release info, as usual, just says improve network applications. I don't currently have a device to play HDR10+ content to double check. Much appreciated.
