Video Output Settings

Please could someone tell me if the Video Output Settings have been corrected in the V6. i.e. Do they now work like they are described in the info screen or are they like the TiVo but with extra 2160 settings?

Re: Video Output Settings

Hi anap, 

 

Thanks for your post regarding the Video Output Settings. 

 

Checking any known issues with the V6 box, there doesn't appear to be any fault open. 

 

What issue are you referring to as I can then double check this more specifically. 

 

Thanks,

Re: Video Output Settings

The original TiVo (pre VM) boxes had the video output settings as described in the info screen. These options have since been disabled by Virgin Media. I was wondering if they have been reinstated in the new boxes. If you select all outputs then the box should output the resolution of the broadcast but it doesn't. It defaults to 720p.

Re: Video Output Settings

There is a catch with the output settings on Tivo.

Don't choose 1080p. I made that mistake and it fell back to 720,, as reported by the TV.  The 1080i setting is fine.

My V6 set itself there automatically and everything is fine

Re: Video Output Settings

It's not fine really though. What you're saying is that you can't leave SD content as is (as the info screen suggests you can!) and that the TiVo/V6 boxes all upscale SD.

Re: Video Output Settings

All TVs upscale to their native resolution anyway. Just set the V6 box to 1080i and have 1080p passthrough and 2160 passthrough ticked and the TV should scale the image. That should work best for most people.

Re: Video Output Settings

I want the TV to do the scaling as the TiVo was originally provisioned for.

Re: Video Output Settings

Then do as I said. Tick 1080i 1080p passthrough and 2160 passthrough if you have a 4k TV and then the TV should do the scaling.

if SD is left unscaled it will be a tiny little rectangle surrounded by oceans of space on a 4k screen!

Re: Video Output Settings

I think you're missing my point. I want the TV to do the scaling! I never said anything about a 4k TV.
