Question: Can 4K AppleTV downscale 4K to 1080p?
Hi! The question seems silly, but it's not. Please read.
iTunes H.264 1080p content has noticeable image compression artifacts. I have a 1080p projector and the difference between Blu-ray (less compression) and iTunes 1080p using an AppleTV 3 is noticeable.
I assume, or hope, that 4K iTunes movies, if downscaled to 1080p, can look sharper and cleaner than the current H.264 1080p movies. Is this possible? In other words, even if I set the box to output 1080p, can it stream/download the 4K version, and then downscale it to 1080p?
I'm in no rush to replace my 1080p projector, BTW...
