I guess no HDR, but anyone know the refresh rate? 60hz I assume. Are all HDMIs going to give 4k input (earlier comment worried me) as I will probably have 2 devices that will want to output to 4k.

Depends how far you sit from the TV.
Human eyesight can't tell the difference between 1080p and 4K unless you are sitting very close to the TV.

If you're sitting further than 6' away 43" 4K is irrelevant and at 8' a 49" 4K is irrelevant.

Higher end 4K QLED/OLED TVs generally have better contrast and colours, hence why they look great when you're replacing an old 1080p. However the distance rule still applies as you can't beat biology/physics of the human eye/optics.

Any more than 10' away and even a 55" 4K is irrelevant compared to an identical 1080p.

Don't get sucked in to the 4K farce unless you are sitting close enough and have plenty of 4K content to watch.

The majority of 1080 content will then need to be upscaled anyway which will look worse than on a native 1080p screen.

As for SD/DVDs, they generally look worse on 4K screens compared to 1080p due to the horrendous amount of upscaling, which the cheapest TVs will handle poorly.

Only 3 hdmi. Cold


How stupid to vote a so cheap large screen tv coz it has 3 hdmi ports when a £10 dongle solves the problem by adding 3 more hdmi ports. Some people can never be happy
All this talk of 40"+ TVs for kids rooms. My 7yo has this:

Hmmm, quite tempting as a spare room / kids room tv
yeah just bought the 49" 4k digihome for the kids room for £219 delivered.

these are the prices you will pay for second hand units on gumtree (or there about's).

they have just reduced several of their laptops too, some with £100 off. not quite the 50% off but some good prices.

Tempted by the Toshiba.
Must resist.... nope can't. How bad can these digihome TVs be for the money. The panel will be made by one of the big boys anyway.

Bought the Toshiba.
Heat!!
These can accept 4k transmissions, which means they can legally put it on the box but make no mistake this is about as 4k as a standard 1080 HD tv

Been waiting for this for 2 weeks since the tv died...been using the new one I bought for the dining room and gave up 2 days ago and used the eBay code to get a cheap one from Currys on eBay.. . Hoping they'll be nice when I reject the Currys delivery on Monday

It isn’t common knowledge but whatever you get make sure they use the HDMI 1 port on the tv as that is usually the only port that does 4K.
I've got the Toshiba 43U6663DB and it's a great TV. Thought I'd stole it at £239 a few months ago. Fantastic deal.... Help yourself at this price.
I've ordered a 49" digihome too for my daughters room. Thanks
How big are your kids bedrooms to need 49" TV?!

Not sure what the other guy means, it has HDMI 2.0 so can accept 4k from any HDMI. It also has a 4k, 8bit+FRC panel. Can see the details here:

What are the chances of being able to put your own apps on either of these two tellys. Eg Vader Streams etc
Would you be able to put your own apps on these?

What's the history with the digihome TV? Are these going to break within first year? If so, how do we claim warranty?
