Just a quick question, bought 4k tv.. interested in 4k box.. does the 4k nextbox come with hdmi 2.0 cable, or does it even support hdmi 2.0.. does the regular programming look "improved" with the 4k nextbox (when it works from what I read lol).. is it even worth the hassle at this current point in time to even bother getting the 4k nextbox, or let the bugs get worked out first.. comments and advice please!
It does support HDMI 2.0. The Rogers HDMI the give u i suppose are HDMI 2.0 but i use the Monster ones so I don't know. Actually when they hooked both 4k boxes they used their HDMI and didn't see a difference
I think ROGERS should pull the plug on 4K and come back when they are ready to offer a product that is working.
again tonight it is not working properly. I wonder if BELL 4K is working better.
We are still in the VERY early days of 4K content being delivered via cable (or fiber-optic). Do you remember the early days of getting HD content via cable?...painful!
Give it some time - it will get better.
I'm starting to get a little annoyed now. I have 5 PVRs that I have purchased and have on my account. I have 2 4K TV and I'm being forced to rent this box at $12.99 a month each. I want to know when I can purchase my 4K PVR because I'm not happy paying $26 a month to rent 2 4K boxes. Bell has 4K PVR already and before I pay $26/month for 2 4K boxes I might as switch and buy the PVRs with Bell. Also the reason I don't have a 3rd 4K TV right now is because I don't want to rent another Rogers 4K non PVR box. If I'm going to spend all this money I might as well spend it on the stuff I want and not be forced to rent a box I don't want. I want a 4K PVR to PURCHASE not rent.
So I got the rogers 4k next box today, and so far so good.. just a few questions for you guys.. it doesn't seem to matter what channel I watch, my tv (when I press info on my LG remote) says my tv is in 4k mode.. (2160p). I watch channel 999 998 997 and go back and forth to channel 22 (1080 is 22 and 900 are my 4k channels) I notice zero difference in picture quality asidea from my 4k box having a blue light on it saying "4k". Is it maybe my hdmi csbke, is the video card in the 4k boxes upscaling everything, or is the tv doing it or am I just not getting true 4k coming into my home. I have the LG 65 INCH UF6540 (model number)
