I purchased a UP875 yesterday and I'm very impressed with this player. Here are my initial observations:
- UHD HDR10 Blu-ray discs look awesome; did not have to recalibrate my LG TV, colors appeared accurate.
- Excellent 4K upscaling; Superbit DVD and standard Blu-ray discs look great!
- Excellent 24p video processing; flawless inverse telecine with no resolution loss. Verified with the Silicon Optix HQV benchmark Blu-ray.
I really like the fact that it can also play MPEG-2 transport streams! I had an episode of Lost from 2007 that I had originally recorded on a D-VHS HDTV recorder and burnt to a dual-layer DVD+R disc. The UP875 played it flawlessly!
I have other transport streams stored on BD-R discs that I haven't been able to play. I'll need to investigate further. I'm not sure at this point if its a BD-R issue or in one case, the use of the .m2ts file extension as opposed to the .ts file extension which played fine from a DVD+R.

I've had this player for awhile, and the inability for it to save your picture setting choice is frustrating. Mine will even sometimes revert my user settings to default values.
Also, the default picture mode seems to oversaturate some reds when viewing rec709 material--has anyone else noticed this?
I haven't noticed it with DVD or standard Blu-ray discs. However, when I played a MKV Blu-ray rip from an USB hard drive, I definitely noticed a red push that's not evident when playing the same file from my NVIDIA SHIELD which outputs Rec. 2020.

That's not normal. Mine doesn't do that. Perhaps it's a firmware release issue?
Under Settings -> Others -> Software -> Information I see:
MAIN VER: BD.37226.70710.C
SERVO VER: UP17SON0016
Anyone know what the latest firmware version is?
