DMPUB900 vs UP970

Looking to upgrade the TV to a 4K that supports HDR & Dolby Vision.

The next issue is Blu Ray Player. If Im spending the money for a magnificent TV, I want something that truly brings the 4K films to life.

I see the Panasonic is pretty near the top of everyone's list for its quality. However it does not support Dolby Vision and I assume that is something Panasonic cannot rectify with a firmware update?

LG introduced a 4K player which gets good reviews but not as spectacular as Panasonic but it does support both formats. The TV I am leaning towards is also an LG.

The Pana is around $700. The LG, around $300.

What should I do?

I use the Panasonic UB900 and it's the best player I've ever had. It's truly great. I've never used the LG player so I can't comment on it. I believe Panasonic & Samsung don't plan on supporting Dolby Vision. Maybe the Sony X800 player might support it in the future seeing as all the top Sony TV's will support Dolby Vision.

Bought the LF TV (E7) and went with the OPPO 203 4K Blu Ray Player. Absolutely beautiful machine.
