I had to check on the manual for that also. The explanation is under the video settings. The difference is the limited use of 4:2:0 (I think) in 4K for auto 2; auto 2 allows 4K to do 4:4:4, etc. There is a bit more in the manual about it regarding the upscaling.
I decided to set mine to auto 1 as that seem to accommodate every color space ratio & my Yamaha 2050 will pass thru 4K; haven't seen any input to the suhd tv that said 4K tho.
EDIT: Whoops! The above was for the 2050.
The s6700 stuff is under "4K Output" in the manual.
Auto 1 is doesn't do video upscale for video, just photos; video is sent as 1920x1080.
Auto 2 is for upscaling video to 4K.
