THE DEER HUNTER UHD BD [DVD][Region 2]


Recommended Posts

If I play THE DEER HUNTER UHD BD [DVD][Region 2] either on my S790 or BDP450 will my OledC9pta be able to show it as 4k?

 

The cover of the box is given as 4k Ultra HD.

How come your box got such MIXUP identities?

While Region 2 is right for most UK releases, that's only for DVD. Not UHDBD.

Typically 4k UHD discs comes in package of:

Single disc release of UHDBD, or

Dual disc release of one UHDBD+ one 2k BD of extra features and documentaries, or

Dual disc release of the same movie where one disc is 4k transfer, another transfer in 2k, or

Dual disc release of one FHDBD of the movie, plus another in DVD format.

 

So, yours is which?

Ok, back to your question, if you put in a FHDBD aka 2k BD, depending on your disc player advance settings, if it's by default set to upscale 2k to 4k, yeah... it'll displayed as 4k.

However, if from source output, video signal is in 2k, your TV will likely to detect as 2k video signal, then upscale automatically to "4k" just to fill up the screen.

Both your Sony and Pioneer are normal 1080p Blu Ray players.

 

The advertised disc in eBay is a 4K UHD Blu Ray that will not play with any of your players.  All 4K UHD disc are not region locked so they will playback on all 4K UIHD players.  The DVD [Region 2] warning is probably a default precautionary eBay warning inserted for all disc shipping from that region.

Your TV is LG OLED that is 4K, HDR and DV ready.

 

You just need to pick up a 4K UHD Blu Ray player which are selling at $200+ to $300+ brand new.   I donated my Sony X800 to a HK colleague last year, and sold my Panasonic and Samsung at  Carousell at $220 and $120 respectively.

I would prefer a reliable brand like Pioneer/Panasonic with support in case of need which has to be better in PQ than my S790 & Pioneer 450 for Dvd/Bd for a change.

 

YANG mentioned a Panasonic UB820.

 

Just wonder what is the going price for a used set.

That is just a WANT btw.

 

As I know and my info may be outdated; 4K titles are few and far between besides they are very costly .

 

Given a choice I would prefer to rip dvd/bd and save in Zidoo9 but right now I have less than 150 including 30 bd while rest are dvd. I only rip those which I often rewatch and I also have some classic MIC dvds from quite reliable source like CCTV for serials like 4 kingdoms, Red Chamber, Water Margin and some classic stage plays but I do not know wether they can be ripped.

 

But as has been mentioned the procedures are easily friendly to the young who have been exposed to a generation or 2 of the cullture of binary devices and gadgets while seniors approachthem with trepidation.

 

Franklly I am inclined to try as the ripping and storage devices are affordable just that it is a mission with challenges.

The UB820, if ordered and imported from UK without warranty, will cost you roughly $800 inclusive of shipping charges.

If you choose to get from US where there are listings in eBay instead, it will cost you slightly less, but you'll need a step down voltage converter as an addition. All that adds up, will still comes close to what UK seller may offer with addition of multi-region play capable on both BD and DVD format. 

 

So... coming close to 1k and you don't get warranty insurance. Local sets is the only way to go.

Sony's local x700 is now going on sale @ $3++, while parallel imported x800 offered by Anson Audio comes with warranty by seller, yet x700 warrantied by Sony.

Only parallel imported set is multi-region friendly on both BD and DVD. Sony's x700 is totally locked in opposite @ region A/3.

UB820 from overseas no need to consider.

 

Write up of UB820 looks good except it is not multi region for dvd/bd.

 

Not cheap though.

 

Thanks bro. Wang.
