New TCL 4K TV severely restricts what I want to watch.

Recommended Posts

Now after watching several 4K videos on Youtube I'm spoiled for anything less, except maybe HD. Previously I had downloaded a few seasons of The Office, but now find they are unwatchable because the clarity is so poor. Waiting for the day (hopefully will live long enough) when 4K is the standard.

Try to connect a VHS video recorder. And remember we were all exited about those things...

Try sitting back from the screen a bit more.

3 1/2 metres from a 55 inch TV?

Some TV's do a better job of upscaling than others.

 

Upscale to 4K?

I think that you are confused about HD. There is at least one step in between and that is Full HD.

 

The Office is from 2001(unless you refer to the American travesty), so it's going to be on DVD with a correspondingly poor resolution.

Is this 55 inch TV a 4k model?

If so: get much closer!

Like 1.5m!

55 inch is much too small for a "living room" experience on 4k.

No chance for human eye to distinguish between 1080p and 4k with 55inch at 3.5m!

(device errors/faults prohibited)

 

1080p = FullHD.

(they call 4k "Ultra HD)

 

I have a 25inch PC monitor at about 70cm (0.7m).

I could enjoy 4k if it was. It's only FullHD (1080p) :biggrin:

And I need pretty good glasses for that.

it's in the bedroom. The previous TV was a 42", not big enough. Believe me I can pick the difference easily between 1080 and 4K, and my eyes are 77 years old.

Aside from that: there are plenty of HD, 2k, 4k amateur video on youtube.

Technically they have the resolution but can still be bad due to the equipment used and encoding process.

Wish we could do the test onsite.

And you still didn't not answer what the TV set is specified for?

I was watching a lot of stuff like movie previews, roller coaster rides, travelogues etc. Brilliant in 4K.
