Re: Lg tv 49uk6400plf upscaling

The TVs 4K upscaler will only run if the source is outputting to the TV at below 4K, I have no experience with the V6 box but basically if the V6 is outputting a 4K signal to the TV even if it's showing a non-4K channel then it won't be upscaled since as far as the TV is concerned it's seeing a 4K picture.

With LG TVs you'll be able to check this by going to a non-4K channel with the V6 box then clicking the select/centre button on the LG remote to open the channel information, it should list the signal resolution at the top left.

It should show as either 4K, 3840x2160, or 2160p.

That'll be correct, it just means the V6 is outputting the configured HDMI resolution regardless of if the channel is lower, so the TV won't be running upscaling.

It's worth checking if the box has an option to match the content resolution, things like the Apple TV do but I'm not sure if the V6 would.

Re: Lg tv 49uk6400plf upscaling

In addition to 2160p I suggest that you experiment by adding 1080p 24/25/30fps (pass-through) and 2160p 24/25/30fps (pass-through) to pass videos which match those resolutions and framerates to your TV to upscale. So, a film at 1080p24 will be passed through for your TV to upscale to 2160p50.
