It just means set the egeat to 1080p...so that tv will display the content to 4k via its chip!! That is better than any media playerI am in the process of setting my A5 up and been looking at your review.which I am relived it gets a good report but there is one bit I do not understand when you say let the TV do the scaling rather than the player This is what you said ( And there is almost no doubt that if you own a 4K TV from a major manufacturer, it's scaling of sub UHD-content will be superior to that of the A10, so we would advise setting output accordingly. It's a bit of a chore but pays dividends in terms of picture) so which picture out put do I set it on the player please.Thanks
Thank you mate I am so looking forward to setting this up as you can see I am very new to this I might need help but at the moment I have just fished packing as I am of to KL in Malaysia until November Work,Work I meant to be RETIRED! Catching my flight @23.30 7 hour flight to Dubai then a other 7hr flight to Kl it will be 0.730 then You guys have a great week end.It just means set the egeat to 1080p...so that tv will display the content to 4k via its chip!!

@UdoG 4k is....4k no upscaling is DONE...PQ is the same, hence it was said in the review !
@DracUK yes there is a bug in lastest FW that prevents some users to autosearch....dunno why; but the nice thing about egreatis that when a problem occurs there is always a workaround like in your case add manually; of if problem on video player...there is VIDON !
@DELUCAS from my numerous lectures...this Hisilicon soc is the best in PQ...by a small margin vs RTD1295...
the big advantage is imprex engine...that will also be usable in Android 7 for 4k...! it was not possible until now...
Yes it is now fundamentally broke, manually adding addresses is a poor solution. They need to get on top of it quickly. Everything seemed OK under the older firmware yesterday.Ive had the A5 for a week now and think its much better than my Zidoo x9s and Himedia Q5pro only problem Im having and didnt have with the others is I cannot get the SEARCH NETWORK SHARE option working (just get spinning circle logo),can only connect to my nas shares by manually adding the server info.This is with a Gen8 and an Asustor Nas.Ive tried everything and Ive put it down to a software bug on the Egreat.
Spent hours on it

Yes I'm having the same problem. Don't know which firmware I was on out of the box but it worked fine. You selected the library by clicking on a share after auto searching. Upgraded to 126.96.36.199 and now the auto search won't work. It finds the shares but won't add the path. You just get a spinning circle then fail message. I'm going to try and add the paths manually by IP address later but that is not really a long term solution. They need to fix the auto function quickly.Are you having same problem? I tried reverting to previous firmware 188.8.131.52 but still the same.
What firmware was shipped with your box and was it working ok?
It seems the top four are :
1 E Great
2 zidoo X 10 etc
4 Hi Media
Some sharing the same chipset it seems .
