Sony KD55XD8005 + Virgin V6 - how to setup up?

Hi guys,

Using the Sony 4K HDR with the Virgin V6 box, but unlike all the reviews I see online, the upscale quality of the HD channels is not "jaw dropping", by the contrary looks worse than on my 50" 1080p TV.

The HDMI cable is 2.0, connected to HDMI port 2 on the TV. Resolution is set to 2160p in Video Output on the V6 box...

What am I doing wrong?

I don't have a 4K TV or even a large TV but I'll hazard a guess.

If you set the V6 Video Output to 2160p, you are allowing V6 to do the upscaling.

If you want your TV to do the upscaling, I would de-select 2160p.

Leave the other 2160p 24/25/30fps selected as this will allow Netflix, YouTube to passthru 4K material to your TV.

No guarantee. Try this at your own risk.

You can always go back to how you are configured just now.

Hi, 

Thanks for the suggestion, no difference. If I leave the video output formats on 576p, 720p, 1080p and 2160p, the HD channels default on 720p. Shouldn't it be 1080p?

Just spoke to Support, there is a dedicated department for V6 boxes, they're sending an engineer out next Saturday.

I'll update the thread once I have more information.
