My Panasonic TV has began to experience picture problems, i've been getting lines on the screen the best way i can describe it is that it's like the banding you sometimes got on old inkjet printers when printing a picture, anyway i've got a new TV and i was puzzled that my Xbox one didn't seem to output in either 4K or HDR, after going to the Microsoft website it was still unclear as from reading the blurb it says it should. Anyway after about another 45 minutes digging it turns out that the original Xbox one although powerful enough to output in 4K can't because the HDMI output is HDMI 1.4 and not 2.0 something that Microsoft seem to not want to explain to us, i guess because before the launch of the original Xbox one, Microsoft used the fact that it could output in 4K to help sell the new model, so as it turnes out if you want 4K or HDR content from your Xbox one you'll have to make sure it's the one S or one X.
