aiyoh。。。U comparing major marques against small makers like OPPO n Laser Australia mehh。。。where one can jailbreak thru firmware update,n the latter comes by default n not uhd as well?
BD play hack can be achieved thru “stop,top menu” method. DVD wise only Philips/Funai players can be achievable。Samsung wise is hit or misses。LG only with non U'h'd models。

From Mr. Zohn:

For projector owners the UB9000 will be a nice advantage in HDR performance vs. the UB820 as the UB9000 has two projector HDR Optimizer selections, 350Nit and 500Nit tone mapping.  The UB820 only has the 500Nit mode for projectors.

Other advantages of the UB9000 is the overall premium design and build quality as well as the better 2-channel analog DACs.

Here’s the list of UB9000 advantages over the UB820:

    Better 2-channel audio DACs and the balanced XLR audio ports and of course the premium build quality.
    The UB9000 has one extra projector HDR Optimizer mode, so you get “Projector Basic Luminance” that tone maps to 350Nits and the “Projector High Luminance” that maps HDR to 500Nits.  The UB820 only have the 500Nit Projector High Luminance mode.

    The UB9000 has a nice full sized backlit remote control with direct access buttons to select the HDR mode and other useful hard buttons.

    The UB9000 has a second very detailed information status screen that displays all of the technical information on how the disc was mastered.  The UB820 just has one basic information screen.

    The separated, shielded and dedicated circuits and power supplies for the audio and video circuits help to isolate signal noise from cross polluting the adjacent circuits.

    JVC put out a press release announcing the collaboration between JVC and Panasonic with two new firmware updates that add Custom 5 and 6 modes when JVC's 2019 NX5, NX7 or NX9 projectors are connected to the UB9000.  The new custom modes will extract all of the color gamut detail at every luminance level, all of the HDR tonal details while perfectly following the PQ EOTF curve.

Owners of UB820 be careful of the hiccups that HTF member faced on the latest 4K UHD release of Black Hawk Down!

Panasonic no bring in... no local stock supply.
