Not yet and it has not been promised.

Sorry.

If the 2060's video processing is turned off, the quality will be identical via the 2060. The Yamaha simply repeats the digital stream from the PS4.

Just leave it off.

It's not like your Kuro has poor video processing so let it de-interlace and scale where required. And it looks like your Sat box is probably your only...
