Ditto squared.What I'm seeing transcends being 'picky', it really does. Magenta flesh tones, as I and others have seen, we're not something we searched for, they hit us in the face (pun intended)
If nobody reports issues, how do problems get solved?
Thought I would pass along my unsuccessful experience with the R4 for any others with similar gear. I have all of my source gear feeding into a Denon AVR-4520 which then outputs to my JVC X500 (RS4910) projector. Using Wireworld HDMIs for all the sources and an Audioquest HDMI to the proj. I first ordered the Amazon FireTV 4K unit but never even opened it due to the feedback. Went and got the R4 from BestBuy expecting great things. Unfortunately, not much success to get there.
First off...the R4 wouldn't even auto recognize my JVC to output a 1080p signal....it kept wanting to send 720p. After numerous tries, I did finally get a 1080p signal to work, but only if I completely bypassed the receiver and went straight to the projector. Trying to get a 4K output was a complete non-starter. The R4 put a message on screen that my display device did not accept HDCP 2.2. So I guess that tells you that even if your display device accepts 4K (like my JVC does) unless its 2.2 compliant, you're SOL. Too bad as I was really hoping for this to finally be a solution to get 4K content to my projector. What I find quite strange was the inability to get 1080p to my projector through the Denon. My Oppo BR and Toshiba HD-DVD pass through it without any issue.
So true.And some people are way to picky, critical and seem to search to find something wrong. We can find things wrong with all the players, apple no 4K , Nvidia limited content , Fire TV sluggish remote and slow load times and if we send them all back what are you going to use? We dont live in a perfect world especially with new electronic hardware. Most of these will be fixed with updates until then sit back and enjoy the near perfect ride with home electronics and give these companies some credit with coming up with inovative things for us to enjoy.
Tried unplugging. Plugged straight into my old tv. No way. It's stuck on a 4K signal. Not sure why it doesn't automatically down convert the signal.Have you tried unplugging the ROKU for a while , is it conecting thru a reciever or straight into the TV ? what happened to your 4K TV and what brand is it?Dumb question but I had my roku set to 4K and that was great. However my tv went bad and had to revert to my old 1080 set. Now I have no way to change resolution. It doesn't revert to a lower resolution. So how do I fix this?
Again I can't view anything on the screen so I can change resolutions. Is there a hard reset or something?
Will check tonight. Thx
Ditto squaredSo true.
Could you have imagined dropping $129 on a box the plays 4k and 5.1 audio back in 1995 when your svhs hifi stereo bus was state of the art and 10x the price.
We live in the future.
Do you guys who own Sony 850A or 900A see any any color shift with skin tones? Wondering if it is a unit specific or display specific problem.
