  1. OLED Technology and Flat Panels General
    In this thread I'd like us to compare the upscaling performance of the various OLED upscaling engines to that of the NVIDIA Shield. This is an important topic as the Shield offers lossless passthrough of various audio formats that, to my understanding, no TV on the market today does. It...

    This thread is for posting objective evaluation data and analysis results with respect to the various Video Processors both in their own right and as compared with eachother. This includes the likes of the Lumagen Radiance PRO, the madVR Envy, madVR HTPCs, and any other video processing...
  3. Display Calibration
    We have always been told to reduce sharpness as much as we can, but don't upscaling upconverting algorithms just add sharpness to DVD picture. I use a Sony BDP-S 6700 which has received great reviews for its upscaling capabilities to play DVDs in a HDTV, but sometimes it seems like it just adds...

    Hi all, I'm trying to figure out how components in a home theater system relate to each other (i.e. I'm not yet at the stage where I'm picking individual components), and in particular what this means for upscaling. Let's assume that I have the following (by "recent", I mean from 2017 or...
  5. OLED Technology and Flat Panels General
    Hello all, I am trying to make a final decision between the LG OLED and the Sony x900e, and would really appreciate any advice I can get!! This tv will be used almost exclusively for watching 'regular' TV and watching movies (streaming from Netflix, etc) - no gaming, no sports. The TV will be...

    8K is coming. 2018 is the year 8K UHD TVs arrived in production-ready form at the annual CES in Las Vegas. These are typically very large TVs, measuring 85" and up, which is fine since there's hardly any point in making a small 8K TV screen. Granted, Dell already sells a 32" 8K monitor ( the...

    So i am in the market for a 4k TV (possibly). Currently I have a Sony Bravia from probably 6-7 years ago. It is 1080 - 40 inch. Now my concern is that most content today is 1080 and so I would want to get a 4k TV with the best up-scaling processor out there. What would you guys recommend? So...

    I have upgraded to UHD 4K and purchased a new audio system, and because of this I selling my previous units ... an Integra DHC 40.2 pre-processor and an Outlaw 7100 power amp (both on the forum classifieds). My previous system was the Integra driving the Outlaw 7100 into Martin Logan fronts...

    Q: I am looking to upgrade my entertainment equipment, but I have a dilemma regarding my DVDs. I don't want to replace my entire DVD collection, so can you tell me which 75" 4K HDR TV and AV receivers have the best upscaling? I know that some TVs, like the Vizio P series, are considered to have...

    [mod note] If you start a new thread asking for advice on buying a new UHD BD player and the thread is merged into this thread, go to the end of thread and your original post should be there, maybe back a few posts. And you may already have some input. [/mod note] my tv is non hdr. s what is...
  12. Home Theater Computers
    I'm trying to figure out how best to configure my rig to display the best possible video quality. I have an Intel 5930k running at 3.75 Ghz and an Asus Strix GTX 980 Ti. My curiosity lies with resolutions and the associated settings in madVR and Smooth Video Project. I have never used Smooth...
  13. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    I have Comcast HD TV and just recently bought both a Sony X850C and a Samsung JS8500 on Black Friday. I just want to make sure I am not losing my mind here. The quality of the Comcast HD channels looks a lot worse then it does on a non 4K HDTV. Is this really true? Is it a waste to even buy...
  14. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    I will be buying a 4K 70"/80"+ size TV (current TV is shot) and am worried about the quality of non HD material, some home videos (VHS to DVD). DVDs and non HD cable channels. I am also worried about what a DVD will look like when stretched to a 80" screen. Which TVs do the best job of...
  15. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    Hello Everyone, I bought a Sony 55X850C recently and it is connected to my pc via HDMI 2.0 (GTX970) @ 2160p 60hz. My question is, which of the following forms of upscaling would generally yield a better picture quality? 1. Outputting 2160p from pc, playing 1080p content and full screening the...
  16. HDTV Technical
    A DVD player can upscale to 1080p. A TV can upscale content. Which does a better job? Or put another way: if I have a 1080p capable set, am I better off buying an up-scaling DVD player, or not? I don't need smart features or streaming players, as I feel a Roku does a better job of those...
  17. Video Processors
    So I have a question for the A/V technical gurus out there. I am looking at getting a 4k TV (most likely a 70" Vizio P-seriers). I've read about strange juddering, image tearing, and artifacts when TV's do the upscaling. I'd imagine this is similar to what anti-aliasing does on a video card...
  18. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Hello all, I'm having a irritating issue when passing video (any source) through Component -- HDMI out. It seems to blast highlights to the point where I have no information left to work with to correct the image. The upscaling from 720p to 1080p looks great except for those damn...
  19. Video Processors
    I am a newbie here. So please bear with me. Here is what I understand about upscaling (i.e 1080p to 4k) => 1. There are 2 parts: source content/device and TV/monitor that can do 4K (native resolution) 2. For TV/Monitor part, currently modern 4k capable TVs have upscaling algorithms implemented...
