Questions on output resolution 4K vs. Auto
I have a couple observations/questions on the output resolution setting on the BDP-103D.
1. I have a 4K TV that is 3D capable. If I set the BDP-103D output to forced 4K/2K, 3D (from a 3D disk) doesn't seem to work, but setting it back to auto allows 3D to work. (I would assume that's because 3D is already using 2x1080p, but that's not clear in the manual or FAQ).
2. If I set the output to auto and put in a DVD, even though both the AVR and TV are 4K-capable, the output from the 103D is 1080p at most. (I only get 576p from a PAL DVD, though I suspect that's because the TV doesn't negotiate being PAL-capable, even though it can play PAL material.) Any reason auto doesn't just upscale to 4K (at least for NTSC) since the TV supports it?
3. Finally, using forced 4K/2K output, PAL DVDs get converted to 4K/60 instead of 4K/50, even though the output is set to multi-system instead of NTSC. Any reason for this, or is this just expected behavior? My Denon X4200W converts 576p to 4K/50 if I do the conversion there.
I can have the Denon do most of these tasks, but I don't know if the conversion/scaling is considered better in the X4200W than in the Oppo. Certainly my old DV-983H and BDP-83 were very good at this, but maybe their processing has been surpassed. Is the 103D considered as good as the 83 for PAL playback?
