Just joined the 4K club...  cloud9:
A cautious  :thumbsup:  What you going to use as 4k signal?

Please don't do what my brother did.  Bought an HD TV and for years fed it with a SCART lead  ::).  Then bought a 4K TV but still drives it through an HD only box  ::).

Are you suggesting that BM isn't technically savvy enough to avoid making mistakes like that?  whistle:
Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

Don't have an Iphone so Apple TV isn't that big a thing for me but looking on the Three website earlier I've found that they have what seems to be a free media app as long as I have a data service. I'm upgrading at the end of the month so if it works out then free Netflix here I come.  cloud9:

Well, it will upscale SD and HD signals... both work well... in fact, the upscaling from a SD DVD is excellent.

Plus I have an 4K Android box so I can stream stuff...

And I have downloaded a couple of UHD movies...

And the tellybox has YouTube and Netflix and stuff built in....

...and no SCART sockets...  ;)
