    Problem: Can not watch 4k material from IPTV (E2 iptvplayer)

    I have tried changing all the setting on the ultimo.....No Result
    I have tried changing all the setting on The Samsung Tv.....No Result.
    I have changed all the players using Blue button ( to select internal/external the whole set.)...No result

    The 4k content are in

    Solo4K, Uno4K, Uno4K SE, Ultimo4K do not support 4K in H.264 (mpeg4) only H.265 (HEVC).

    Duo4K and Zero4K both do support 4K in H.264 and H.265.

    However Duo4K and Zero4K do not support Mpeg1, whereas Solo4K, Uno4K, Uno4K SE, and Ultimo4K do.

    So there is a trade off.

    And before you ask, no nothing can be done about it, as it is a limitation of the chipset from broadcom.

    Hi Ev0

    I am looking at manual of vu+ultimo4k and it states:
    video decoding: H.264/MPEG-4 AVC MVC
    H.265/HEVC MP

    Could you please tell am I misunderstanding the terminalogy, because I thought it does both 264/265 format

    Thank you in advance

    It does H.264 MPEG-4 upto 1080p
    It does H.265 HEVC at 2160p

    It can not do H.264 MPEG-4 at 2160p

    No, as I said above.

    Duo4K (and Zero4K) will work with H.265 (HEVC) and H.264 (MPEG4) at 2160p

    However Duo4K and Zero4K will not work with Mpeg1
