So my old Samsung 61" DLP 1080P (HLS6167) has been slowly dying over the years, not just the lamp; but I think the color wheel bearing is going out (high pitch noise for about 30min after turning on), and random yellow blotches on screen then shuts off.
So BF I snagged what I thought will be my next new TV for 8-10yrs, and decided to spend a little extra for this 4K thing I keep seeing everywhere. I bought a Samsung KU6300. Got it for $559 w/free ship direct from samsung.
So Now I've had it a week, it's super bright, been tweaking the settings a bit, think I found a good spot. I have a Dish Hopper 3 as my provider, and OTA antenna with tons of locals. No blu-ray, Amazon, netflix etc. My DSL 'high' speed is a whopping 12M (paid for, actual is closer to 8M, Netflix/fast.com is consistent 8.x). So apparently I won't be streaming 4K anytime soon. I can't even get my Hopper to download a 4K superstore show to see what it would look like.
So a few questions:
What can I feed this thing to see what 4K would look like? Can I download on my PC something and watch on the set somehow?
What can I put in the USB ports? thumb drives, TB hard drive with own power? What formats can the TV watch?
Is there an OTA guide (like tivo/dish?) or is it just the info as you change channels?
From the Dish board looks like it's going to be a live with it; but watching some shows, there's some jitter/jutter. Most noticeable is on ABC, say Designated Survivor for example. Particularly when people are walking, it's like watching youtube (remember I have slow speeds); yet audio is not affected. I have the Dish set to output 4k/1080i/p. I've used the settings found in here on the 'official 6300' thread /rtings site, and a new HDMI cable, and it's helped some; but still there. Any other suggestions?
I do have a large DVD collection, but rarely watch anything anymore; I was thinking of getting a BR player; but sure I'd use it much; don't want to re-purchase my collection. But IF I were to, is there such a beast that would double as an external BR Burner for my PC's, and also have an HDMI output to play on the TV?
