Hello,

I borrowed an Onkyo HTRC460 AVR and I just hooked everything up today. I also have a 4K Samsung TV. The problem I am having is not fully understanding what 4k upscaling means, because I assumed that when I plugged my PC into the AV that it would retain my 4k settings within my graphics card; however, I am dropping down to 1080. When connected directly to the TV, Nvidia settings are at 4K; however, when I go through the AVR, I no longer have the 4k option, and I am limited to 1080 and lower. In the Nvidia settings my monitor is no longer listed as the 4k Samsung, but rather the Onkyo receiver, so I loose the higher resolution settings. Yet, the receiver has both 4k pass-through and upscaling, so why am l loosing the options for 4k resolution in my Nvidia settings?

I don't want to use the AVR for video now but if I disconnect the HDMI and use optical cables for sound only, I also loose better audio functionality that comes with the HDMI like DTS. Is this AVR just not 4k ready and the pass-through/upscaling doesn't actually affect resolution options in the graphics card settings?

Thanks

says in specs it only supports HDMI 1.4a, so the best you'd get would be 4k@30FPS anyways which is choppy and laggy and not worth using. Not sure why you don't see that and could be figured out, but not worth it in the end anyways.
