I’m about to install a Samsung QLED 4K TV in my family room, where a TiVo Premiere XL is currently paired to an older (not 4K) HDTV. In other rooms I have a Roamio PLUS and a Bolt (TCD849500). This will be my first 4K set and I am wondering if the Premiere XL is able to pass through a 4K image or if I should be thinking of swapping rooms with one of my newer TiVo boxes. The new set is a smart tv full of apps that I can send direct to screen without going through the TiVo box so maybe this doesn’t matter?

I’d appreciate the thoughts of more techno savvy TiVo users. Thanks!
Mike

The Bolt is 4k capable, (as well as Edge?) Premiere and Roamio is Pre-4k and not capable. About the only 4k content is in streaming, there is hardly any 4k on cable yet (maybe a few channels.)

I have two 65" 4k LG OLED TV's, one with a Bolt and one with a Premiere, obviously the TV connected to the Bolt has a better picture with 4K content. But, I will say that the TV's upscaling ability is very good and TV connected to the Premiere, which is limited to 1080i for most content, looks really nice.
