when you go to 'settings' > 'video output' have you tried selecting only 2160 (pass through only)?
Since I made that change, my 4K Panasonic displays video output as 3840 x 2160 and there is a considerable improvement in picture quality e.g. the TV is doing the up-scaling... (although alas it didn't fix the lip sync issue...)
If your TV is indicating that it's receiving an input signal at 3840 x 2160, which I assume is what you mean, then clearly the TV is NOT doing any scaling.
Your 4K TV will always display video "output" at 3840 x 2160, otherwise the picture wouldn't fill the screen. 😉
VM has failed to fix the problem for years, so don't be optimistic.
You cannot get your TV to do all the scaling because the box, be it TiVo or V6, will always scale 576i to 1080i unless your video setting is only 576i - which would be ridiculous for most people. If you set to 1080i, the box will will scale 576i to 1080i and pass through 1080i. The best solutions for your TV to do most of the scaling are:
If your TV is 1080p set to 1080i and 1080p 24/25/30fps (pass-through).
If your TV is 2160p set to 1080i and 1080p 24/25/30fps (pass-through) and 2160p 24/25/30fps (pass-through).
It depends on which does better scaling, the TV or V6. As set top boxes are never particularly good at scaling, try the TV first with the video setting in my last post. Then set the V6's video output to 1080p only so that it does all the scaling and compare the difference.
Hi, its true! The box does all the scaling (badly) to your lowest setting if all the resolution boxes are ticked. If you only tick the 1080 then all pictures are scaled to this resolution by your box, not your tv. If you tick all the resolutions then the box will downscale all to the lower resolution.
...exactly - so basically, there's no way for the TV to do the scaling because of the existing bug!
'Native' mode (by selecting all formats supported by the TV) should mean that content will be passed straight through to the TV without the V6 scaling so the tv will do the scaling, but it currently does not do this.
@@Rose_B - This is what we need confirmation on - is this bug actually being worked on?

....but thats the whole point - the TV CANNOT do any scaling because of the bug.
