One annoying thing about the 700 for me is that the Dolby Vision doesn’t switch on automatically. Need to manually set it on before you play a Dolby Vision disc.

On Amazon UK now:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-UBP-X800M2-Ultra-Blu-ray-Player/dp/B07MCY9P4Z
Looks promising and might be a good choice as a transport for music and also as a solid 4k player for much less than the premium offerings from other brands.

Lovely, you can get one when it comes out and tell us if it has a universal voltage :)

Hi all.

My X800 US set stop reading discs with "no disc inserted" shown.

Tried multiple discs and also did the unplugged and re-plugged.

Resetting to factory also failed to resolve the issue.

Any bros have any solution?

happened to me on the X700 too. unplug power and wait longer. put in a BR that always works then back to the problematic disc.
it works for me to clear glitch.

I recalled mkv file cannot be played. M2TS files can...as I sold my X700 one month ago, unable to confirm at this stage. But I'm pretty certain it cannot play back HD lossless audio and Dolby Atmos sound mix on mkv.

Somewhat related

Does Sony sell their AVR here ? Can’t find anything on their site.

Sony AVR only thru parallel importers in Lazada. Seems to be Aussie models.
