Okay, so I'm having a video quality issue when trying to play 4k content on my fire tv stick 4k. This may not have anything to do with the T758 at all, but it is plugged directly into the back of the unit, so I just thought I'd check here to see if anyone else uses a firestick 4k as well.
I've posted in the streaming section of the forum, and the fire stick thread, but haven't had any responses, so maybe I can get somewhere here. It's hard to give a perfectly clear example of the issue when trying to take a picture of the TV, but if you focus on the sky in the background of the image I attached, hopefully you can see what I mean. There's like a wavy outline, and then another line above that following the same curve, and another above that, and so on. Instead of having a smooth clear picture of the sky, it's basically in pixelated sections instead. Is this compression / "blocking"?
The reason I'm thinking it has to be an issue with either the fire stick or the AVR, rather than what most people would point to first (connection speed), is because the same visual issues DON'T happen if I play 4k content straight through my internal TV apps. Everything is setup on the same wi-fi and my internet speed is 600mbps.
Any ideas on where to start troubleshooting? Anyone else that also uses a fire stick plugged directly into their NAD that can see if they have any issues?
