Have a new TCL 4K TV that doesn't want to play ball with my Sony 4K Receiver (keeps connecting at 1080p). Tried all the cables I have (all rated HDMI 1.x)


Is there a cheap cable that people can recommend that can definitely do 4K60 fps?

1: How long does the cable need to be?


2: Does it need to be pulled through a wall?


3: What source do you have?


4: What model of Sony AVR do you have?

1. 1-5m


2. No


3. No 4K source, only the receiver connecting to TV (it could well be that the interface is not in 4K so it connects at 1080p when no source? but it upscales sources to 4K)







Sony STRDN1080
