I’m also having difficulty with the proper settings for 4k movies.
I have my Vero 4k+ directly connected to my Vizio UHD 4k TV using a Certified Premium High Speed HDMI Cable, 4K@60Hz, HDR, 18Gbps, 36AWG, YUV 4:4:4 cable. Resolution is set to 3840x2160p, Refresh rate is set to 29.97. All other settings are default.
I watched “Transformers The Last Knight” 4k Amazon Prime movie and the colors popped and the dark scenes had a lot of contrast to make out little details. I hooked up my external drive to the Vero and played the same movie, here are the specs.
I know it could be from improper ripping of the movies (which I know nothing about).
The colors did not pop and it crushed a lot of the blacks where you lose detail and contrast. I’ve read a lot of other posts about the Vero not being able to handle 10bit and not passing all the HDR/UHD metadata for the file.
What should my settings be so I can get the best 4k picture now, until the Vero can handle proper 4k metadata?
