Hero 6 HDMI out max resolution

Hi,

 

Can anyone tell me the max resolution I can acheive for playback via HDMI out on the camera to my 4k TV please?

 

I have some recorded videos (4k60) and unable to watch them on my Macbook pro as it is choppy and now trying to watch them directly on my TV from the camera. Playback from camera works, but I'm just wondering if it is playing back in full 4k60.

 

Thanks in advance!

Re: Hero 6 HDMI out max resolution

The max resolution seems to be 1080.  The HDMI is more so you can check the recordings rather than as a main playback method.

 

You could try using something like Handbreak to reencode at a lower bit rate to allow it to be played on the Macbook.  THis will also convert it from h265 (which is resource intensive) to h264 (not as intensive)
