    Sportsnet has been producing NHL games in true 4k since 2016. To my knowledge NHL and NBA are essentially the only sports captured in 4K. NFL “4K” is upscaled.

    Usually it’s just the leafs but I think most rinks have the 4K cameras now, Wednesday flames games usually get the 4K channel.

    I could see how 1080 feeds would look pretty similar if you are watching on a projector.
    All the World Juniors games were in 4K, really not that big of an improvement in image quality for it to be noticeable during play but it was really noticeable in between plays. The biggest benefit was 60fps, and that is available on NHL app already (1080p60).

    Sportsnet may have games on their 4k channel but I don't think they have broadcast a single non-leafs game in 4k. Sportsnet has nothing in 4K for the next 2 weeks on their 4K channels.

    TSN4K channel is nice as it lets you know when the next true 4K broadcast is (Raptors games on 1/16 and 1/22 iirc).

    Best part of the Telus 4K PVR is not 4K itself, but that the whole system feels so much quicker. I assume it is because it has a beefier processor to handle 4K.

    I was watching via NHL app on Apple TV 4K and also noticed the feed for the Tampa Bay game on opening night looked like shit, almost somewhere in between 480 and 720P.
    Ya it was weird because that game looked good on my side. The flames game was brutal, dropping down to 320p at times haha. I think it was a source issue because the knights game was perfect side by side.

    Looking again tonight it doesn't seem as bad as the flames game from last night. I'm noticing there's only one sportsnet channel that shows 4k on it, so it probably wasn't even on the 4k feed. If an app like gamecenter provides a consistently better quality it might be something worth looking into.

    There’s no 4K feed from the flames. The nhl package won’t work for flames games unless you’re on a vpn due to blackouts. It does work great behind a vpn, the ability to watch multiple games is awesome.

    Yeah up until a few weeks ago, I was using the regular HD PVR and finally upgraded to the 4K PVR not for 4K but just cause it's so much quicker. The old one was frustratingly slow and there was a noticeable lag from when you pressed any buttons until there was a response from the device.

    Maybe I haven't seen the new telus box, but Bluecurve is the best experience I've had. I barely even use the guide anymore, just tell it what to do.

    Tonight’s Flames game is on the 4K schedule, unless you are saying they don’t use 4K Cameras in Calgary which I can find evidence of... anywhere.

    Anyone have a Hisense Q series on here?

    I need a budget TV for the kids area in my basement - Gonna be used for Netflix/Disney+ & Xbox S/Switch - Nothing terribly fancy. Have my eye on the 65Q7G - It's big brother the 8G gets the nod for best budget TV on Rtings and the only thing missing from the 7G is Wide Colour Gamut.

    Thoughts?

    I have the H8F and the only real complaint with it is that it's not great at motion handling. Mostly fixed after tinkering with the settings but I think I read that the G series tv's have that more or less fixed now.

    That sounds pretty good. Yeah I couldn't find much for faults honestly. Costco has the 7G on sale right now for $800 (ending today though), so gonna keep my eye on it for a clearance/Superb Owl sale next month.

    Setting up a workout space in the Basement.
    I will be using the Peloton App for the Spin Bike (Not a Peloton Bike). I am thinking of putting a TV on the wall with a Apple TV and using the two of the Mini Home Pods for the Audio.
    I am thinking of getting Samsung QN55Q70T. Is this a over kill? Should I go with the UN55TU8000 ?
    Also the other question I have is Whether Mini Home pod is the way to go Or should I go with Sonos Beam. I like the idea of Home Pod because it can be easily Hidden.
    Any feed back will be much appreciated.

    Sonos beam is way louder than 2 minis. It’s comparable to 2 homepods but that route is stupid expensive. I tried all 3 setups over the holidays and ended up with the beam. You can also expand rear speakers with the beam. The HomePod has atmos support but it’s terrible. Also, one of the major drawbacks of using homepods is that it only works if you use Apple TV. If you decide to have say an Xbox there later, you only get sound from tv speakers.

    I’m assuming volume is a must for you if you’re riding a peleton.

    As for tv choice for peleton use, just get one bright enough for the environment. Everything else is overkill. Assuming you won’t be using the tv for anything else.

    This setup won't be used for anything other than Peleton Use.
    I am sure the Spin bike ( Sunny Spin bike) will make some amount of noise. Also we will be adding a Peloton Thread once it becomes available. So Volume will be a Priority.
    Thanks for your input.

    I ended up with a 75Q8G and its been great. We don't use it as much as we'd like but for the price ($1200) its definitely a fantastic budget TV.
    For you're needs you'll be happy.
