360 Resolution scaling issues

Hello

Please please please tell me that upgrading from V6 to 360 hasn't left me with even less options for passing through video content in native format than the TiVo V6 before it.

With "6 only Netflix was left needing fixing

But here on the 360 we seem to have gone back to square one again with no passthrough options at all.

 

Thanks everyone

Re: 360 Resolution scaling issues

Hi again Chris,

I just have my 360 set on Automatic and leave the 360 box take care of the scaling.

You can set it to 1080i or 1080p and leave your TV do all the upscaling instead, but remember to switch the 360 to either Automatic or 4K if you are wanting to watch say BT Sport Ultimate or the Virgin Ultra HD channel as for some reason my TV doesn't seem to upscale those to 4K

Re: 360 Resolution scaling issues

Hello

Thanks and the recommendation is fair. But goes back about 10 years compared even to the old V6 boxes

But reading some more thought it seems like this might never get looked at though if I read all the other features missing that Virgin need to add... 

It really does seem that their developers perhaps use low definition TVs and perhaps set a default that works for them but to hell with anyone with a high end TV.

Cheers though,

Chris

 

P.s. I've updated to remove those original issues from my signature but seems I need to add this one instead :Facepalm:.  Repeating one last time.
