RX-A1020 "4K Support", how will this work with todays 4K TV's?
Quick details about my setup:
- Samsung 55 8005 (2011)
- Yamaha RX-A1020 (2012?) 5.1 surround
Samsung TV is 1080p, Receiver has all my devices connected directly to it, and is feeding the TV with HDMI output - everything works perfectly.
- Xbox One X
- PS4 Pro
- HTPC w/Kodi
I'd like to upgrade my TV, and I'm looking at the Samsung 75" Q*FN series (I want the Q9FN, but budget might put me at Q7FN...)
- How will this affect how I connect my devices? My RX-A1020 "supports" 4K. But after some reading I understand that this is HDMI 1.4 and 30FPS max.
- My current HTPC won't be able to run 4K video - so that's not an issue yet. But how about PS4 Pro and Xbox One X; Is any 4K games running at more than 30FPS?
- HDMI 2.0 is required for 60FPS correct? This is also required for HDCP 2.2, required for Netflix etc (which I usually use my Chromecast for)
- Will I be required to plug my Xbox and PS4 directly into the TV to get the best possible result? As I said, I don't think they ever run 4K at more than 30FPS, but I could be wrong?
- Samsung 2018 and DTS...; If I have to plug everything directly into my TV, I have to use ARC right? How will this affect my setup? IIRC the ARC connection isn't good enough for HD-audio, and of course won't support DTS because of Samsung's new limitation.
My blurays could be re-encoded for my HTPC, but I'd rather not...
Sorry for my babling here, I'd appreciate any help I can get to know where I'll be with a new TV. I don't want to invest in a new receiver - it's working perfectly, and I'm very happy with today's solution.
As I probably won't stretch my budget to the Q9FN or Q8DN (EU version of Q8FN, also full array backlight), my option is Q7FN or Q6FN, which I'm not sure have that much of a difference other than aesthetics, at a very similar price (10% difference).
Are there other TV's than the Samsung Q-series I should consider? Low latency is a must, and as high light level as possible, but with a decent enough contrast...
Sorry for all my questions, I appreciate any thoughts on the matter!
