How to watch Freesat 4K with your 1080p satellite box ...
« on: January 28, 2018, 05:35:06 PM »

If you have a an older satellite receiver that was designed to display 1080p HD max there may be a way to watch full resolution 4K Freesat - I have a VU+ Solo 2 (running OpenViX), you can log into the box and stream any channel. While my Solo will only relay the sound of the Astra/Freesat 4K channel, with no picture, to my 4K TV - if I stream the 4K channel to my MPC-HC media player on my Windows desktop I get full video and audio.

So if your satellite box enables streaming try streaming 4K to the MPC-HC player(MPC uses hardware acceleration, VLC tends to jam) and see what happens. :)
