Equipment: LG C6P, Marantz SR7010, Xbox One X, Xbox One S, Oppo UDP-203, Mad Max Fury Road 4K BD.

Noticeably higher black levels while playing Mad Max on the X and S. Particularly the FBI anti-piracy warnings prior to the movie along with the title card and widescreen bars top and bottom. Perfect black levels while playing Mad Max via the Oppo.

Credit to Microsoft for releasing the patch so quickly but I think it needs a revision.

Have you had any sound sync issues with the X? honestly now.

I have the fat xbox one and that thing is terrible for playing blurays.
For some reason 1 out of 4 playings will experience sound going out of sync sometime during the middle of the movie.
It's terrible and I just stopped using my xbox for media altogether.

That was about a year after launch so I don't know if they ever fixed it or if Microsoft just isn't good at fixing it but regardless I'm curious about the X.

Me? Yes thats how all my consoles are hooked up.
I liked snap for browsing/youtube but I never bothered doing the TV thing with it.

No I never bothered to try it on different inputs, I have other devices that can run media just fine so I never saw the point of trying that hard just to get the xbox to perform properly.

I just tried that and no difference. Xbox = high black levels. Oppo = perfect dark black levels.

I can't use the blu ray anyway because the lip sync is always out.
