Using an 8 year old Full HD 1080p Television with a Super HD 2K (2019 release) IP Camera at 2688 x 1520 resolution - Delayed streaming on live view


Novice Member

I have an old Samsung Full HD 1080p TV and I purchased it about 8 years ago.

I recently purchased an IP Network Camera and it is connected to a Network Video Recorder, which is then connected to my TV. The IP camera is streaming on my TV through the recorder at a resolution of 2688 x 1520.

The problem I have is that there is a delay on my live view compared to what is happening outside my house that becomes progressively worse and lasts 3 to 4 seconds if the recorder is kept idle for at least 30 minutes. The delay then becomes even worse and lasts 7 to 8 seconds if the recorder is left idle for more than an hour. The most odd and strange part is that if I click into the menu and then go back to the live view at any time, the delay goes back to lasting for half a second, but then once the recorder is left idle again for 30 minutes, the longer delay re-appears.

Through trial and error I have identified that the cause of this is potentially the TV because the TV is out of date and can't cope with the higher resolution. I did lower the resolution of the camera and the delay did decrease, but I still need to test it for a bit longer.

Can anyone please confirm that the reason I am having this delay is because the TV is struggling to process the high resolution of the IP camera, before I go out and buy a new TV?

Many thanks for your help,

The cause of it is the recorder as the behaviour changes when you go through the menus?

You haven't detailed any evidence pointing to a bug in the TV's scaling.

Is the TV getting that resolution? You're vague about what is streaming to what but if you're not using a streaming software built into the TV then it's pretty likely that whatever is acting as the streaming client is outputting a different resolution to the TV.
