There are a lot of settings I usually have to play with to get vids to play at 2K with a R7360 but it can be done. I find it easiest to use another player, my choice is usually MPC-BE but I only used that as VLC didn't have HW support when I started using it. Some vids still will not play altogether but most play. Certain codec I think? I just installed a new hard drive and reinstalled and haven't played with vid settings yet or I could give some suggestions.Yeah though your fix is probably easiest. I kind of like pushing that envelope though. In reality the TV is only 1080 but with VSR on I have a 2160 option. They do look good too!!
