From what I've gathered, I need a TB that supports HDMI 2.0 in combination with HDCP 2.2.
I'm looking for about a 55 inch ( size can vary ) but I don't want any black screens or trouble shooting, price range around 500 would be preferable ( i spent 700 on my monitor, I'm not being cheap, just broke. )
This TV was perfect http://www.bestbuy.com/site/vizio-55-class-54-64-d
Until I read an article stating vizio D models had problems with PS4 Pro. Model number D55U-D1 for those who don't like links from scary strangers.
Then I asked bestbuy chat, they pretended to have a clue but really didn't understand the compatibility issues I was concerned about and they recommended a Sony TV: BRAVIA XBR X700D Series Model Number XBR-55X700D Link : http://www.bestbuy.com/site/sony-55-class-54-6-dia
It's a few hundred out of my price range.
I'm doing research behind the scenes as well and will update here if I figure anything out, but I really want to spent as little money as possible but am willing to spend extra to avoid any HDR or black screen issues with the PS4 Pro. Thank you in advance, once this is done I'm on my way to the store.
( My local stores include target, Best Buy, Samclub, Walmart, etc ) so i should hopefully be able to find any recommendations here in person.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Via Forbes article listed 11/26/2016 @ 8:45AM* talking about the PS4 Pro's issues with some* 4K TVs.
" Second, it suggests that only some 2016 Vizio ranges are affected by the problem. The SmartCast Home Theater Displays that should work fine are the P Series, the M series (except, possibly, the M60-C3), and the E Series. The Internet Apps Plus models that may well have a problem are the ‘Reference’ RS series (oops), and the D Series.
For owners of potentially affected Vizio TVs, the situation as described by Vizio’s statement is far from ideal. "
Full article link goes into more depth about different brands.
If this article is to be trusted, I found a good E series that is within my price range, but will need more opinions here before I consider purchasing anything.
E Series E55-E2 Full link seen here: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/vizio-55-class-54-5-di
If some cannot recommend any specific exact TV, I would appreciate any guidelines to follow or to look out for to assure the TV I purchase will have absolutely no problems with the PS4 Pro. Thanks again.
Lists that it does have HDCP 2.2, but doesn't specify HDMI 2.0.
This article below lists a Reddit user supposedly confirming it does have HDMI 2.0, but obviously even the poster said take that with a grain of salt.
This could be the one guys. That's all my investigative capabilities for tonight, now I retire.
At that price range I would look into a better 1080p set. 4K does not add a lot, and HDR at that price will not give you a true HDR experience. Depening on the TV you have now it may be better to just save your money until, 1. You have enough for a better TV, or 2. TV tech that can give you a good PS4 Pro experience comes down in price.
If you want a great PS4 Pro experience you need to be looking at Fully Array LED, or OLED 4K HDR screens. These are currently quite pricey, but they really show what 4K & HDR can offer. A cheap 4K screen can actually be worse than a 1080p set due to refresh rates, and underpowered processors causeing artifacting, judder, lag, and other display noise.
Proud to live in the future with the best electronics on the planet.
Have you checked out my above LG link for 600? It looked promising.
I am willing to budge on price, i think I could find a decent 4K for what I need 500 - 650. My concerns are more on making sure i don't get the black screen with the PS4. I'll be a good 5 - 10 feet away from the tv, and will use it as a second monitor occasionally.
The only mention of the " A " model I could find was the reddit post here https://www.reddit.com/r/hometheater/comments/4e74
Although the A model looks good on paper http://www.lg.com/us/tvs/lg-55UH615A-4k-uhd-tv
Non A model: http://www.lg.com/us/tvs/lg-55UH6150-4k-uhd-tv which was the one I found on Rting
