Re: Virgin TV 360 users (Horizon)

Is it not BT Sport Ultimate now? Im guessing they dropped the UHD moniker as they are broadcasting around 2.5K rather than 4K. I believe they make more reference to the channels HDR capabilities these days which is more to do with colour and contrast rather than resoloution. BT Sport has UHD capabilities but only through specific apps.

If BT are still using the UHD moniker then its akin to them also using "fibre" to describe VDSL broadband

Re: Virgin TV 360 users (Horizon)

BT Ultimate HDR requires a streaming app too. But I can see they're broadcasting both HD HDR and 4K HDR content now.

Neither version of HDR are via their own STB or the V6 or 360. It's 4K SDR or HD SDR via the broadcast channel.

Thank you very much that was the solution !

Only downside is the 360 iPlayer UHD demo is highlights of the 2019 FA Cup final which is too painful a memory to watch again even in UHD !!!

Dracula, Dynasties and His Dark Materials should show up in UHD automatically as well :-)

Re: Virgin TV 360 users (Horizon)

I think you will eventually be offered it (can't say when) but doubt there will be additional cost.

You can ask for it now if you want:

https://www.virginmedia.com/shop/cus...ultimate-oomph

They've included a comparison table and a note that it's a new service that's different to the current offering at the foot of the linked page.

Re: Virgin TV 360 users (Horizon)

I've had it confirmed to me tonight with a call from the 360 Tech department that the roll-out to "update" V6 boxes to 360 is a disaster and was rushed out and that the new 360 software is definitely NOT compatible with Arris V6 boxes and should not be happening.
He is replacing my 2 "updated" Arris V6 boxes with new Humax 360 boxes tomorrow! He also confirmed that roll back to V6 with Tivo is not available.
