Re: Virgin TV Ultra HD Channel

As the 2 UHD channels are both broadcast at 50fps, you must have just 2160P set, nothing less.

The only other setting you can have is 2160P passthru to allow apps to passthru 24, 25 and 30fps.

Re: Virgin TV Ultra HD Channel

Yes it is a fault with the V6. You have to tick 2160 only to get UHD. I'm not sure if they'll ever fix this as it's been like this for ages.

Re: Virgin TV Ultra HD Channel

I used the Auto detect function in the V6 "Help & Settings > Settings > Video Output" menu - every channel I view shows 3840x2160 50Hz in the info box at the top of my Panasonic 58" TV.

Re: Virgin TV Ultra HD Channel

I also have a Panasonic. Mine is the EZ952.

Yes your TV will show 3840x2160 on all channels. This however is only telling you the panel capacity - NOT what the resolution you are seeing actually is. Comedy Gold in 4K..? :-)) No - on the V6 guide that's the place of channels 999 and 555 only - for now. Other ways of course are Youtube and Netflix, where 4K is available.

As mentioned previously, for 4k you need to have a suitable 4k hdmi cable connected from the V6 box up to a 2.2 compliant hdmi port on the TV. With our Pannys, these are usually ports 1 and 2. You have a 58" inch panel, so guessing this is the EX* series - which will be the same re ports - use HDMI 1 or 2, though refer to manual to be certain the port is 2.2

Secondly..as mentioned also previously..go into settings, and select 2160 ONLY..leave 1080 and other settings unchecked. 2160 pass through auto appears/ticks once done and re-checked. These settings will ensure true 4k, whilst retaining the best PQ on other channels as would still otherwise be the case.

* ..or DX possibly..same advice

Re: Virgin TV Ultra HD Channel

I disagree with the first statement. The information on the screen will show the actual format shown.

If it always shows 4K, that’s because either V6 or the TV is upscaling to that format.

Re: Virgin TV Ultra HD Channel

You can disagree all you like. The Panasonic DX and onwards 4k sets, always show 3840x2160 on all channels - whether using the V6 or not. But standard def, is still standard def, and albeit the capacity to upscale exists..doesn't mean it actually happens.

Re: Virgin TV Ultra HD Channel

Then, if that is the case, Panasonic are idiots.

My Panasonic does not function like that. I suspect user error or misunderstanding.

Re: Virgin TV Ultra HD Channel

lol Ernie. Always have to be right ;-)

In fact I just realised that the manuals to my own previous EX and present EZ..were actually very complicated, and I don't really understand a thing about the sets. Why does the adapter plug have three pins..?? Smiley LOL

Re: Virgin TV Ultra HD Channel

My LG does the same... if the V6 is set to 2160/2160 pass through only, then the input signal on the TV for ALL channels/apps on the V6 shows as 2160/4K. The issue isn't the telly... it's the V6. I am guessing that all tvs will be the same.
