Directv 4K

Wasn't sure where to put this thread but who all here has 4K with DTV? They hooked me up yesterday I have a 65in directv ready 4K up front in the main room
(RVU hookup - no box) and a 45 in another room. Now I don't get this but the smaller tv needs the normal genie HR-54 and the smaller 4K genie so both tv's get the 4K signal. Seems a little odd and clusters up space. Now I just learned I can only play 4K on one tv at a time
Not a huge deal just wasn't aware initially. I know their are only 3 channels (104- nature, 105- ppv and 106- sports (when live).

I was an early adopter to HD when there was only HD 1, HD2 and INHD. I'll be renting a ppv to check it out this weekend. I'm curious when they will adopt more channels and when.


Anyone one else have it and use it much?

I'm on FIOS, so no. But I'm curious to hear reports. May be picking up a 4K set later this year.

I have access to the Xfinity 4k sampler on my Samsung TV. I'm not all that impressed (limited content, stereo only).

Hopefully they'll release their HDR tuner in my area soon.
