Anyone know whether this supports 4k resolution as a PC monitor @ 60Hz via the HDMI port?.. Meaning, does anyone here know this sports HDMI 2.0?..

Thanks...

It does nothing
#6
What?.. zero by zero resolution as a PC monitor / display, REALLY?.. Most TVs these days does some kind of resolution at some kind of refresh rate!..

Any one else caste to answer this question properly!?.

The Philips 40PUS6809/12 has a resolution of up to 1920 x 1080 @ 60 Hz when connected to a PC.
It currently uses HDMI 1.4.

There is absolutely no point in restricting input to 1920x1080 while the display supports UHD resolutions. If you do see information regarding restricting input via HDMI to 1920 x 1080 from non official sources, you can completely disregard such information. I can assure you that 4K input is supported. Whether this will be at 30Hz from HDMI 1.4 or 60Hz from HDMI 2.0 (or HDMI UHD), I am unsure because the Argos product description does not specify which HDMI version. However, your PC can still be configured to synchronise with the display at 30Hz, in the event that this TV is not equipped with HDMI 2.0 (or HDMI UHD as manufacturers like to use).

You may want to search for the user manual in order to verify whether HDMI 2.0 is available as an input. If you are also expecting to connect USB devices, you may want to check that an HEVC decoder is built in since all the 4K content we work on is encoded in HEVC. If you intend to solely use the PC for playback, then of course, your PC will carry out HEVC decoding.

Mmmm, that information is incorrect even from Philips themselves. See page 12 of the user guide here http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/4/40pus6809_12/40pus6809_12_dfu_eng.pdf

HDMI UHD is supported but page 76 specifies 2160P (at 30Hz, rather than 60Hz) video resolution. Note computer formats is specified as 1920x1080P at 60Hz amongst others. You can safely assume that "amongst others" is a subset of the full 4K resolution, as specified by the bullet points of video formats above the computer formats.

So I have to assume that it's only HDMI 1.4 revision meaning only 30Hz @3840x2160 via the HDMI port connected to a PC!?. Bummer, well that sucks!..

The user guide is full of incongruencies. Note that a standardised HDMI version is not mentioned, although a non-standard HDMI UHD is specified and this is usually a term used by the manufacturer to indicate HDMI 2 support but judiciously avoid specifying version 2, in order to cover themselves from misrepresentation. I suspect that the HDMI UHD input will be firmware updateable to version 2. However, despite HDMI 2 allowing video input at 60Hz, the decoder may also require an update.

Yes, if 60Hz is critical, it is a risk to buy this TV in the hope of future support for your requirements.

Specs page says it supports 1080p with PC but I got one and it works [email protected] Picture is great but it has horrible HDMI lag, I couldn't get it under 0.3s with PC/Game mode and every possible postprocessing option off.
#14
I bought one yesterday. Is there a fix far this lag or should I return it? My PS4 is unplayable.

I have same problem-lag when is connected on pc via hdmi.

Pls help us
#16
I have same lag problem. I tried disabling all image processing and using picture style computer or game but the lag did not improve. I also have a problem with video looking upscaled from 1080p when connected to the PC on 2160p resolution. I have to disconnect the HDMI cable from the tv and reconnect it for the image to be clear. These problems are raised in the Phillips support forum as well, and I understand that they are working on a firmware update. Hopefully they will be done soon.

No it does only support 30hz and won't suitable as a pc monitor

Hey guys it's because 4k is very hard to run at the moment as you need a lot of expensive hardware like 3 gtx 970s or something like that and even then it still might be a problem, I don't think its the TV but 4k itself at the moment seeing as no one seems to be playing in 4k stable without lag, try 1440p I think that would work assuming you have 2 £150-200 GPUs :)

I disagree!.. Not all games needs high end specs to run 4K albeit not on high settings or AA on though... I'm running Borderlands The Pre-Sequel on 3840x2160 with some medium-high settings and no AA and it seems to run okay!..

Back to the subject in hand!.. People are talking about this TV only supporting 30hz at 4K and upscaled 1080p is an abysmal with no way to increase the refresh rate, and running this as a monitor is even worse!.. I stayed well away from this TV and got me self a Samsung 28" 4K monitor and still loving it until someone brings out a bigger size TV / monitor with a quick IPS panel at an incredible affordable price!..

My 2pence worth ^_^

Actually yeah that's true but most games can't handle it for some reason but yeah I think this TV is best for watching only :)
