4K for life......for now.

Recommended Posts

I’d be using it mainly with an AppleTV (would get the 4K one) and eventually some 4K UHD player. And likely a PS4 pro at some point. 

 

Is the the lag ok for gaming?

Practically none to speak of for lag. I think it is in the mid to high 20’s. No problem with PS4 Pro but I think it only does HDR at 1080p or something weird like that. 

 

And looking around it seems seems that the Apple 4K should be good too. You will have to make sure it is set for either 24 or 30 hz though. The 5040 will not accept hdr over refresh rates higher than that due to the HDMI board on the unit. And apparently this makes the ui on the Apple “jittery.”  🤷‍♂️

 

I haven't had any problem with the two UHD players I have, a cheap Philips and a decent Sony.   No compatibility problems with either but don’t buy them. That LG seems to be getting some good reviews around here.

Thanks for the input. I’ve decided to hold off. I read up on the HDR issues and it just seems like the kind of thing that should be smoothed out in the next version.

Despite them no longer manufacturing players Oppo’s dedication to their customers goes from strength strength with HDR10+ support coming soon:

 

 

Really do love my 203. My only remaining want is dolby vision support via the HDMI input if hooking up an AppleTV...etc

Currently thinking I should just wait and see what works and what doesn't, but the whole situation with HDMI cables has confused the hell out of me. As far as I can tell, there are fundamentally just four types of cable; with/without Ethernet and regular/"high" speed. So my current cables that were called "high speed" a few years back might well work just fine.

 

Is there any easy way to tell what all these things I have lying around are, without just trying them? As far as I can see I'm only asking the Xbox One S and any Apple TV I buy of pushing a full 4k HDR signal, and the cable that came with the Xbox is supposedly fine for it.

Got my Vizio P-Series 65-F1 on Monday, and I adore it.  Got a great panel with little to no DSE, except in the corners where it's barely noticeable.

 

Now I have spend a good amount of time with the settings and get the picture set up for TV/Movie and Gaming, but it looks spectacular with very little fiddling already.

 

My wife even admitted it was money well spent (she was dubious, until I fired up the demo program on the set when I got it put together.)  :D

If you have amazon prime turn on Marvelous Mrs Maizel. It is one of the best looking 4k shows.
