I thought 1080i60 with proper pulldown effectively 1080p? :D

Assuming they downscale properly (no reason to think otherwise), the increased recording resolution will only serve to improve overall...

It's not NVIDIA's fault, it's Netflix not supporting desktop GPUs. The NVIDIA Shield (using Maxwell GPU, no Kaby Lake CPU) can do 4K Netflix. This is an artificial/marketing/legal/political...
