Hello all, I just got my 55" yesterday and I'm running on very little sleep having played with it much of the night. I had a couple of questions:
1. what's the best way to peel the EPA sticker?
2. I have a marantz NR1710 receiver and a Apple TV 4K. When the TV was plugged directly into the Apple TV 4K, I was prompted to enable Dolby Vision and the TV briefly showed the Dolby Vision Logo. When I ran the ATV 4K through my marantz, I was again prompted to enable Dolby Vision. This time, however, the screen went blank and said 'no input signal'. I cannot get the ATV to work with Dolby Vision when going through my receiver. I currently have it set to this:
Some people have said that these issues have to do with the HDMI cable itself. Will this cable solve my problems? Is there a cheaper alternative lol
3. How do I playback my 4k HDR remux mkvs?
I tried last night putting a movie on my flash drive and plugged it directly into the TV's USB port. The native player recognized it right away and started playing it back. But I only have a 64gb flash drive. I'd like to use Plex...
My Plex server runs on a Synology NAS so it cant transcode anything, or would I want it to. I tried the Plex client on both my Apple TV 4K and the android TV version built into the TV; neither will stream 4K without upgrading to their PlexPass experimental player.
I have a Surface Pro (5th Gen) Model 1796. It has 1 video out port, which looks like a mini-DP. I have a mini-DP to HDMI cable. I'm wondering if I can just plug this into my TV into HDMI1, and boot up the Plex Media Player client on my surface and if that will output my movies to the TV in 4K HDR. Or do I have to do something special or mess with the video settings or is what I'm asking not even possible. I'm at work so I currently don't have a way to test this, just hoping for some insight on my new toy.
