If you have an AVR to pass HDMI through the Shield can send Muti-Channel PCM from Live Channels. That is the way I am working. I have Surround Sound enabled in the Shield.

I was previously using a 2011 92" DLP Mits 1080P Rear Projector set. I replaced it with a 2015 78" 4K Samsung mid 2016. Each of these sets cost me ~$4500. I have to get 4 years out of a primary TV,...

Currently Live Channels has no Dolby Decoder and your Penny Plasma doesn't either. You will need to use Homerun app or get some other audio device with Dolby Decoding.

The 55KS8000 is a tremendous TV for the money. If you get one with problematic edge light bleed make them replace it. I bought a 49KS8000 for some $40 less and I am really happy with it. Mine has no...

49KS8000 if you can find one. I put one on my desk. Couldn't be more pleased. Several hundred less than the 900xe. Sam's had some 49K8500 cheap. Probably gone now.

Keep in mind if you are not using something like MadVR the TV or projector will probably do better upscaling than the PC.

HDR 10+ could easily be processed outboard. It is essentially just a frame by frame rendering system. The frame is still 4k WCG. You just need to have a tone map of the display. It is an open system....

Playing 720P at 1080i by definition drops frames.. no display can prevent. The frames are gone before the TV gets it.

Sure it can, if you can play the content on the PC in the first place. What are you trying to Do? Your 4K display will upscale any standard definition contact.

Samsung 55KU6290 $498

My local Walmart had Samsung 55KU6290s for $498. I got the nearby BestBuy to price match it. I must say they didn't want to. My mother in law has a Mother's Day surprise coming.

When you view these images on SDR one is struck by how much better the HDR looks in SDR.

It means the TV upscales 1080 to 4k better than the Shield which makes perfect sense. My Samsung is better as well. When I use Live Channels I have the Shield set to 1080.

A TV without a tuner..that is casting based may not makes sense for a couple in their seventies. A 55 inch Samsung KS800 or 8000 can be had for a grand. Just make sure you turn of Automotion.

If you don't need DRM for cable, the Shield and Homerun Prime works very well. I use a mix of PCs and Shield. The Shield picture quality is not comparable to MadVr.
