    Does magnification degrades picture/video play back quality?


    I've recently bought a 4k TV, have it connected to PC via HDMI and it kind of acts as a 2nd monitor. I had to increase the zoom under display setting since I wasnt able to read any of the text on 4k resolution.
    My question is, having done increase the zoom on the TV would it degrade the video quality since it is zoomed?

    What happens when you take a Xerox copy of something and keep blowing it up? Using Zoom to read text, just means more noise and harder to read.

    Being magnified it's going to degrade.

    What part? The asking you what happens when you keep trying to blow up something on a Xerox Machine, which makes it harder to see. Or when you are trytto take what is on your screen and trying to zoom in on it, which causes the pixels around the object to become very noisy.

    Using a Flatscreen in its "Native" mode is not alwayd best when try and use it as a monitor. You need to keep the flatscreen in "Normal" mode "Full", depending on the manufacturer. Turn off Overscan in the software for your card. Disable any settings on the flatscreen that are about "Noise", Film mide, etc. Then Calibrare the flatscreen with THX Tuneup, which allows you to make basic adjustments. If you want the advanced Calibration, you will need to hire someone. What this will do is make your flatscreen a lot better when not only using it for the computer, also when you use it for watching movies and tv.

    There are color profiles out there. You have to know who made the screen part of your tv.

    How much do I have to explain to you that you cannot use a Flatscreen to replace a monitor, without any kind of adjustments.

    Again, what happens if you take say a page out of a book and keep blowing it up on a Xerox machine? When you are using your Flatscreen, it will go into what is called "Native" mode. That is also due to what GPU chipset you may have on your motherboard or on your computer. If you do not have a UHD/4K capable GPU, you will only get 1080p. You will see the text smaller, because the flatscreen is larger and it has to take all of that text and graphics, then convert it to what becomes a noisy mess if you get up really close.

    Change you settings for that flatscreen on your computer to a resolution that is a lot easier to read. See my post that I put up about calibrating your Flatscreen to help get rid of the noise that happens when the tv engine has to fill in some blanks to make whatever you put up there to see. Again, too small, lots of noisy pixels. Too large, a whole lot of noisy pixels and you cannot tell what is exactly the font that you are looking at, because there is way too much noise when the Flat Screen is being used in place of a real monitor and it has to use 10 times the real estate to fill the screen with nothing but noisy pixels.

    Im just kidding mate, I'm surprised you took the time to write each time but I appreciate it. Im using the tv as its native resolution right now, and then just use the zoom option. Although I cant visually tell if it down grades a video file when I play with naked eyes. But oh well. Worst come I just disable the zoom when I want to watch something. How does that sound?
