Set output to 1080p so my TV upscales HD to 4k ?


My TV upscales 1080p to 4k .
But if the v6 outputs at 2160p then surely this means the TV won't upscale the image ?

So if I change the output to 1080p then normal 1080p TV would be upscaled by my TV and look better ? ( Only for normal HD TV, not any 4k Netflix or YouTube content)


I've been trying it now watching a nature doc and switching it back and forth between 1080p and 2160p output and I swear it looks better in 1080p mode. Crisper and more detailed.

Am I just imagining this or anyone else noticed ?

There are no 2160P broadcasts so if you want your TV to do the upscaling, do not tick 2160P in your V6 settings.

Leaving 2160P passthru in the settings will allow any 4K YouTube or Netflix to pass straight through to your TV.

PS There are no 1080P broadcasts either.

Thanks.
I'm not just imagining the improvement to my TV when setting output to 1080p then Smiley Happy

Might 4k upscaling be a good future software update for the v6 in this case ?

V6 does upscale, when the 2160P setting is ticked, but, in your experience, it does an inferior job to your TV. This doesn't surprise me.

BTW V6 does a great upscaling job for my lowly 1080P, non-4K TV.

After a bit of experimentation, I now have the output ticked for both 1080p and 2160p .
This way it changes output resolution based on content.

So normal TV gets 1080p but 4k content (YouTube) switches it to 2160p output.
