Hope you're well.
Hoping someone can confirm/clarify something for me.
I signed up for BT TV over the weekend and the kit has arrived which will be activated tomorrow.
They've sent the 4k/Ultra HD YouView+ box, however I have a relatively bog standard older TV which I doubt is compatible for 4K/UHD (as far as I am aware).
I assume the 4k/UHD box that BT have sent will still work OK, I will be able to pick up HD Channels (Including BT Sport), but I just won't be able to pick up 4k/Ultra HD channels?
Thanks in advance,
I assume your old TV has HDMI connection as the new box T4000 will not have Scart output ?
You will need to set the HDMI Display on the T4000 to a suitable display setting that matches your Tv capabilities
eg 720p or 1080i or 1080p
The T4000 could still receive 4k but you would be telling it to downscale to a lower display setting.
(Note that the preset initial display setting for the T4000 may be higher than your TV capabiliies - that can cause display issues (eg blank screen) until a compatible setting is set. )
Thanks a lot for your response that pretty much answers my questions.
Should have mentioned, my TV does have HDMI ports as I currently use a HD Freesat Box, so as long as I ensure the display settings are suitably changed it will work fine, which is good to know.
Thanks a lot for your help,
