Low res on normal programs

So my hd programs are fine but all ads on HD channels and any program that is not HD is very poor quality, like annoying to watch its so poor. I was wondering if there is something not set up right?

Re: Low res on normal programs

How big is your screen? Anything over 32" will reveal the shortcomings of SD resolution - the more pixels you have, the more that have to be calculated/estimated by the rendering program.

Re: Low res on normal programs

What is your V6 Video Output set to? If you haven't done so, try experimenting with different settings to see what works best - if you set it to 2160 only, the V6 will upscale everything and send it your screen as 4K. If you have a brand new good quality TV (Sony, Pana, LG, Samsung etc), the scaler in the set may do a better job than the V6. My V6 is set to 2160 and 1080 and seems to work OK with upscaling SD channels - of course they look a bit rough, but acceptable. Hope this helps! Nick
