    I’ve been away from my system for the winter and am just starting to use it again. My processor displays various information about the signal it passes, including the resolution and frame rate. It seems in the past I remember that being reported as 2160p/24, as shown below from a TNF game last fall (on channel 105). I haven’t seen any 105 content since I got back, but looking at 4K on 104 my processor is reporting 2160p/60. I honestly don’t remember what 104 used to show.

    My question is, does DTV actually have the bandwidth to do 2160p/60 w/HLG (HDR)? Are all 104 programs in 2160p/60? (that’s all I’ve seen) Are all 105 (sports) in 2160p/24?

    Anyone know any of these details?

    1) 2019 Thursday Night Football on DTS 105 (with OSD of details)
    2) 2020 Volcano Program on DTS 104 (processor display)

    Content is broadcast in whatever is sent. There was a bug in the fall on the box causing live 2160/60 content to be in 24fps

    that was fixed at some point. All content on 104 is 60fps. All sports should be 60fps and the movie channels are sometimes 24fps

    but yes they have plentyyyyyyyy of bandwidth

    Thanks, good to know they can put so much signal down the pipe, and good to hear that the 24 FPS was a bug, sports is one place that really can use the higher frame rate.

    I just found a reference I made from last summer on another forum, it appears 104 was doing 24 FPS at the time as well.
