I picked up a new Samsung UN58MU6100FXZA TV today to finally enter the 4k era. I have a few 4k films to test with which report being 3840x2160. This TV is my first and currently only 4K screen. I was able to play some Netflix shows through my FireTV and when I hit Info on the TV remote it shows the resolution as 4k so I'm assuming my HDMI cable is good. However, when I try to playback the 4k films I have on the server through Emby the TV Info only shows as 1920x1080p. Emby is not currently available through the Samsung App Store so I can't try it directly on the TV. So I'm wondering if I have something misconfigured somewhere or if there is just something not reporting properly.

What does the media info in the web app look like for that item?

 

It is direct streaming in VLC and VLC reports the resolution at 1920x800.

There are two video streams for that item?

 

What about the audio?

Just an update, I've replaced the cable 3 times just in case it was responsible. Netflix and Amazon Video both show as playing in 4k. I uninstalled VLC and tried using the Emby player and it still reports as playing in 1080p.
