The main crux of that quote I wanted to highlight is "480p content looks like ass on a 4K set." Evolvist is not the first person I've seen (on online forums) who says that - not by a country mile! So I'm wondering if it is actually worth doing something stupid like getting a a second set, one only capable of playing 1080p HDTV? I'm not yet 4K capable, to be honest, but I am very interested and I do have my first disc ("Jaws", came with a standard BluRay, so, yay!) but.... We have a very large collection of TV shows on DVD, a combination of pretty much equal parts region 1 (NTSC, or 480i/p), region 2 and region 4 (PAL, or 576i/p). Yes, we do have some shows on BluRay, but the collection is at least 95% DVD. I can already tell you from experience that some NTSC stuff (primarily films with the pulldown) looks like crap on our current 1080p HDTV (50" LG, unsure of model, purchased 2011) and, in a few rare cases, I have even had a PAL version of the same show to compare it to. In closing, at the moment, I/we are not considering buying a new TV (probably a 4K one) until our current one dies. However, if DVD's do look awful on a 4K screen no matter if NTSC (film or video) or PAL (sped up or not) then I may well look into having a seperate TV for 4K and one for old stuff - and, if so, look at buying a 4K TV sometime before the end of next year. How do standard BluRays look on a 4K TV? By "standard" I mean regular "not remastered for Dolby Atmos" type BluRays? Mainly because I'm certain none of the ones we have, have it.
