Decode it, sure, but what about the actual video output?
Not sure exactly what you mean. Someone at FreakTab modified a build of XBMC to play 4K video files. When I play the file it shows 4K video and 5.1 DTS in the XBMC player. Picture looks crystal clear on a 1080 TV . Would be nice to have a 4K Tv to see if there is a huge difference. Most people say outside of 10 feet you will not see much difference.
It doesn't output in 4k. The max video output on the unit is 1080. So all it does is allow you to playback 4k content with the hardware decoder. There will be no quality difference even on a 4k TV because it will be 4k downscaled to 1080 and then scaled back up to 4k.
