XG1v4 Capabilities

Finally getting 4K box to hook up to my 4K TV. I know there is essentially no 4K programming on xfinity beyond apps, but do folks installing these boxes see any noticeable improvement in their regular (non App) pictures? Curious if it's worth the trouble.

there is no difference on non-4k videos.

Re: XG1v4 Capabilities

Now that I have a XG1v4 on my main 4K TV I will say that the picture is better, in my opinion. Not 20% or 25% better, but maybe 10% and that's good. It wasn't bad at all before, but now I know I really can't do better with Xfinity. The Xi6 on my bedroom 4K also made a marginal improvement there too, and again - just my opinion. I think much depends on your TV and perhaps adjusting those settings at the same time. I'm also glad that my recordings were saved. I do wish there were more options on the rear of the box for sound. It took a new add on to get my sound back.
