I'm a Verizon FiOS subscriber and the vast majority of what I watch will be pre-recorded DVR TV shows with a few movies thrown in from time to time. I'm not a cord-cutter and I have no idea what "casting" is all about. I also have my movie collection ripped to .mkv files on a Kodi HTPC, and I will probably be buying a Roku 4 at some point for Amzaon Prime and Netflix 4K content. Mabye a 4k BR-D when they come down in price and there's a lot of content available. That's it. No games, only sports viewing is a few NFL and NHL games.
As a result, upscaling is my biggest concern since TV shows will be my main viewing pattern, and rtings ratings for the 2015 model seemed to indicate it that model was particularly bad. Does anybody have a conclusive answer to the upscaling situation on the P65-C1 (2016 model)? If it's not great, is there a box that does impressive upscaling that I should be going with? I will also be replacing my AVR with a view to getting something under $500.
Thanks in advance.
If you have Kodi not sure why you still paying for cable! ^_^
People having issue with the Upscaling with FIOS tv services say it dont do great job. But question is how good you want the tv or any upscaler to fix the garbage compress signal of cable
Is up to you for the $$ of the TV what it could do. Upscale is anther fancy way of saying stretch out. Is so much you could do to fix/stretch a crap signal.
The P does a great job on native 1080P to 4K. So TV\display is not a problem.

Just chat with Vizio, they dont provide or have such bug fix information at their end or website. I open a case so engineering could provide us with some type of information about what issues the firmware/patch addresses.

Question - I see people using different blu ray players.. I have a Playstation 4, will that do the TV justice or do I need to buy a dedicated player? I dont want the UHD player yet as theres not enough content and its too expensive.. Thoughts?
Ps4 should be sufficient for BR movies. There is no UHD Blu-ray player support without HDMI 2.0a, Vizio will be releasing firmware around June to open up capability for UHD players.
I think i will wait until Sony release the new PS4.5 or ps4 4K in November. This should be compatible with all new tech like HDR10, UHD, or even DV. To early to conclude. Can't wait.
