Could someone give me the step by step instructions-like I'm a six year old-to cast 4K or UHD. Manual no help. Also, search of this thread was a nightmare. TIA!!!
Here's the short version. I also attached the book version.
INFO: The Android version of the Netflix app ( comes with the tablet ) is a bit more descriptive when determining what particular version of a program you've cued up. It will say if it's UHD or Dolby Vision, etc. under the program summary page.
The iPhone Netflix app is not as descriptive, but if you follow these instructions in the following order, you will be casting 4K and HDR in no time.
1) Launch the Netflix app. ( iPhone or tablet )
2) Tap on the "Cast" icon/button near the top right of the display. You will be prompted to choose a device to cast to. Obviously choose your TV.
3) When successfully connected, the TV screen will display the Netflix logo and the words "Ready to Cast".
4) Tap on the search icon/button. ( Upper right of screen on app. Looks like a magnifying glass. )
5) Type either "UHD" for 4K, or "HDR" for Dolby Vision in the search box. You will see a list of program thumbnails.
6) Tap on a program thumbnail of your choice, and then tap the "play" button. If you selected a Dolby Vision program, you will see the DV logo pop up under the % load on the TV screen.
NOTES: The list of HDR content is much shorter than UHD. House of Cards is in 4K. If you use the SmartCast app to get the Display Info, it will take 10-15 seconds to show 4K resolution. Netflix ramps up the streaming speed gradually.
