From what I read, and correct me if I’m wrong, but the high bandwidth would only be an issue for 4K 60hz on the PS4.
I too have ordered the 85 900F and I am looking for similar information. I ve just recently returned to the forum and I admit to being a bit lost. I’ve got a week yet before installation.
Should I buy new HDMI cables and if so what am I looking for? I’ll invest high end if it matters.
My plan is to hook up 4K Apple TV, a direct tv Receiver/DVR, a non 4K Blu-ray player, and possibly a cheaper sound bar. Which ones should go in HDMI 2-3 if they are higher bandwidth? I assume I can use optical cable or hdmi to connect the sound bar? Should I put another TV connected HDMI in the wall for a PS4? We usually use it another room, not a pro.
opinion on mounting an 85? How high off ground should the low edge be? be watching from 12-13 on the couch. Just a fixed mount or would other options be worth it ?
can anyone recommend a budget type sound bar/system? I know nothing about them but Looking for something to improve my new set up. Watch a ton of sports, network tv at night, rare movies.
Is there a location in this forum that summarizes manipulating settings for best picture? Realizing people have different preferences on color/ brightness etc but have read some good info that is still a bit confusing for now.
Thank you much. Appreciate the help here.
