I have a question about the i/p scaler. If I have it turned on, and set on "Auto" for output to my 4K TV on HDMI, should it be taking the HDMI signal and upscaling that to 4K out to my TV? When I am watching the DirecTV 4K channel, if I check my system info on my television it says "2160p" and "HLG" for HDR. However, when I watch any other channel, like ESPN which is 720p, then my TV says it's in 720p, even though I have the scaler on. Shouldn't it still be outputting in 4K or am I thinking of this incorrectly.
I did just get a firmware update on the 6011 tonight which is why I turned the scaler back on at all. I had it off because we had upgrade our DirecTV equipment and with the new DTV equipment, any channel that was NOT 4K would be pink. When I turned off the i/p scaler that went away. Now the channels all look fine, but I don't think the scaler is actually scaling anything up.
