Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

Have you anything selected in the video settings on the V6 other than 2160? I find the difference very noticable.

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

Yep - a feature (I would say fault) of the V6 is that to get 2160 from BT Sports 4K - you have to only select 2160 in the output options. Ignore the passthru settings as they are not for regular tv channels.

If you select any others (1080, 720) than the V6 downscales to that setting - even if 2160 is also selected.

I checked the settings mate and it was already at the first 2160 setting.

Why is there no option to get rid of the L news bar on BT Sports 3 on Virgin?

I have to say that the 2160 setting doesn't make much different on my Panasonic 4k tv either. It looks the same as the 1080i did. 4k movies and iplayer 4k content looks incredible though.

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

I find the pictures really good - could be tv setting perhaps?

BT Sport 4K is the best picture quality channel I've seen - better than Sky Sports UHD.

Could it be that modern smart TV's up scale to the pannels native 4K resolution and that is why people are not noticing a big difference?

No idea. But there is a big difference between an upscaled 1080p. mkv file and upscaled BBC News 24.
