Poor quality on sports channels on 4K TV

I've bought a new 4k TV, the sports channels in HD are really poor quality. I've tried the settings and they are set correctly. I also bought a new high speed 4k HDMI cable and having the same issues.

Other HD channels like BBC and ITV have perfect quality so its strange its just the sports ones.

Can someone please help.

Re: Poor quality on sports channels on 4K TV

When you say the video outputs are "set correctly", can you be more specific? Virgin 4K help is worth a read, many people have reported the best results from having 2160, 2160p passthru and 1080p selected.

You've mentioned about HD sports channels being poor - again, which ones?

I'm a Very Insightful Person, I'm here to share knowledge, I don't work for Virgin Media. Learn more

Re: Poor quality on sports channels on 4K TV

Hi DenisK1,

Have you tried experimenting with the different V6 formats?

I had mine set to 2160p, 2160p passthrough and 1080p which I thought gave a good picture, however I now have it set to just 2160p and leave my TV upscale the other formats and I believe I now have a better picture. 

You could also check your TV settings, most have different modes such as a Sports mode, Dynamic, Natural, Cinema and Game.

I have my TV set to Sports mode but do change it depending upon the programs I'm watching.
