    Philips or LG upscaling

    Tough decision. Mostly wanna watch movies and series in HD, occasionally full HD or even SD movies via USB from mkv and avi files. Probably prefer IPS rather then VA, unless there is one with good viewing angles. These models are what I found in ok price: Philips 58pus6504 Philips 55pus6754...

    Best all-in-one solution for streaming downloaded 4k HDR files and 1080p upscaling?

    We have a new Vizio MQ8. A good chunk of our content is downloaded. Some 4k HDR stuff, also plenty of regular 1080p rips. Yesterday picked up an x700 which plays back the 4k HDR content from a flash drive beautifully. The upscaling for 1080p looks excellent too. Obviously the catch here is...

    If you stream through a fire stick does the fire stick do the upscaling or is it the fire stick followed by the TV processor? Thinking about getting the Philips OLED 745 but don’t want to use their OS and watch Netflix etc on the fire stick.

    Mostly watch 1080p streamed movies from Netflix, which does a better job converting to 4K? Only about £100 difference in price now.

    Question Upscaling by Smart 4K TVs

    I have read that films on regular Blu-ray discs are upscaled to some extent by 4K TVs; but what about DVDs? Does the TV upscale their output as well? I have a huge collection of DVDs and as these are older films mostly, am not going to upgrade them to blu-rays. To get the best PQ out of them...

    DVD upscaling to 4K

    How is your DVD upscaling to 4K? I just got a Sanyo FW65R70F, and I'm viewing disks from an old Sony BDP-S360. Upscaling from blu-ray looks great, but upscaling from DVD, though in places impressive for 24x upscaling, is sometimes swimming in artifacts. I tried setting the blu-ray player to...

    Hello! We have had an ACER H6517ST projector for two years now, and it has native resolution 1080p. While we have been using it without much problems with fairly lower resolution inputs such as DVDs and old laptops, I have recently tried to use it with an ancient home computer which has very...

    Hello, I need a little help. I have connected a satelite receiver(1080p). The picture is not in very good quality it seems like its not upscaled, lot of pixeleting and blurry.

    Is this feature started automatically or do you have to instigate it manually in one of the menus. Some programs just don't look quite sharp. Of course, this could be a failing of the system's ability to render some old non HD channels sufficiently accurately.

    Question Sony STR- DN1080 upscaling 2 channel content

    Hi all, I have a question regarding the upscaling on my STR-DN1080 when listening to 2 channel content. Should ALL 2 channel content upscale when it's set to Dolby Surround or Neural X? I previously had a Sony STR-DB940 (which sadly died on me, although the sound from the 1080 is far superior)...

    Question 65” Sony X930E vs LG B7A - Especially Upscaling

    Hi guys, I’m on the fence about these two particular tv’s, right around the same price. I get the OLED has a better overall picture, but one thing I don’t see a lot of input on is upscaling quality. All of my content is watched through my Apple TV, but I’d say 60% of it is subscription TV...
