Thanks.
If there's a setting for this, it'll be at Setup > Video >Video mode > Processing >Resolution menu

Mine shows '4K' as an option, which is surprising because V673 is supposed to not support 4K. I haven't tested it, but if you do, I'd be interested in what you find.

..just the beginning..

I think it has 4K passthrough, but the HDMI ports may not support the latest standards? Or is it just 4K up convert?
I could never get the 4K pass through from my TIVO BOLT to work.

Ah yes! That jogged my memory. What V673 doesn't support is HDCP 2.2 (copy protection for 4K content) and so the V673's HDMI never successfully does the handshake. So, really, the receiver having a 4K option is a bit pointless as most (all?) 4K sources will require HDCP 2.2.
i2k and ChromeJob like this.

This is what prompted my upgrade path to the A2060.

Oh darn it. I thought I was future-proofing myself when I bought the receiver with 4K passthrough. Should have known.

What's interesting is the picture through the RX-V673 is really really good as if it is in 4K. I just keep getting an annoying popup telling my 4K isn't supported. So either the Directv box is sending out 4K (even though the error says it's sending 1080P) and it's getting passed through the RX-V67, or the upscaling of 1080P is incredible. But I can't put up with the constant error popups, so I'll have to change my connections anyway. Disappointing.

Thanks for the feedback.
