So i just recently got a new 4k TV and i have a virging V6 box, however the picture quality on the 4k tv is kinda rubbish and not really HDMI. I was just wondering whether theres an adjustment period, or whether theres a specific setting on virgin box I need to adjust since i switched tvs? Or is just the case of the right HDMI cable?
The other thing ill add as well, is that the tv was HDMI, no problem on last tv
its all of virgin, i did have a go with the video output settings on virgin but not really sure whether i tested through them properly. I think its an old HDMI cable, and can't really see what type of HDMI cable my tv requires,but saying that, my playstation is clear as day and thats run through HDMI as well. Not sure
You will need a high speed HDMI cable for 4k, the type of cable you have will be written on it. On the V6 go to the display settings and select only.......
2160p 24/25/30fps (pass-through)
1080p 24/25/30fps (pass‐through)
With these resolutions selected your TV will perform the upscaling. If you select "auto detect" then the V6 will select the highest resolution for your TV and will do the upscaling which may not be as good.
If the V6's highest resolution is set to, say, 1080i, then 4K content will be downscaled by the box to 1080i only for the TV to upscale to 2160p. So, it won't look good. As for SD: it will always look horrible on 4K TVs as 576i has to be upscaled to 2160p.
On some TVs not all of the HDMI ports are 4K, might be worth checking out, also you might need to change settings on the HDMI ports to get the best picture. Sometimes changing it to enhanced or HDMI deep colour.
