Hero 5 Black 2.7K Videos playback on Full HD Panasonic TV

Hello Everyone.

 

I am having an issue with my new Hero 5 Black. In short,  I want to watch my 2.7K videos on my Full HD Viera Panasonic TV.  I have my  Micro SD card in a USB card reader that is connected to the USB port on the TV. When I try play the files I receive the error "format not supported".  If I film in 1080 it seems to work ok.

 

My question to everyone.

 

Is there a piece of hardware I can buy to convert and help me out here?

 

If I go the long route & convert these files on my PC beforehand, what freeware would you recommend?

 

Unfortunatley Panasonic's support said that it is not supported to connect a Gopro to their TVs. Somehow the software wont recignise it.

 

Thanks everyone in advance :)

You can get the HDMI cable and play back the files directly from the camera I guess.

Cheers @agilestoke40735 - works a treat with an Ultra HDMI cable.
