I have some Shield setup questions... feel free to point me to a better thread or I can create a new one if appropriate, but I know there are some quirks with the Shield and that some people here own one. I'm not sure how much is C7-specific either. I have a brand new Shield Pro. Its main purpose for now is feeding the TV bluray rips via Plex, so HDR is not an issue. I'm interested in some gaming via emulation or streaming from my PC too, but I'll be happy just to understand this part first.
1) Do I want the Shield set to output 1080p or 4K? I read some comments by D-Nice earlier that there are color space issues playing back Rec.709 1080p files when set to 4K output.
2) Given the choice of resolution, what color space should I be using? My ISF modes are calibrated to Rec.709, so do I want the Shield outputting that way? At 4K resolution, my choices are YCbCr 4:2:0 10-bit 2020 (recommended), 4:2:2 12-bit 2020, 4:2:2 12-bit 709, and a bunch of lower value 709 options. At 1080p, my choices are YCbCr 4:2:2 12-bit 2020 (recommended), 4:2:2 12-bit 709, 4:4:4 8-bit 709, and RGB 8-bit 709.
3) Is there a way to get the C7 to report its refresh rate? I'm using Plex's refresh rate switching option and I'd like to check that the set is receiving 24fps video correctly. My eyes have never been great at detecting frame-rate issues without a true side-by-side comparison.
Thanks for any advice you can provide.
