As far as I can ascertain pre 2020   8K TV processors  are  incapable of decoding YouTube 8K streaming videos, only demo content can  be displayed.

 

Whilst this article is 10 months old suggests  hardware limitations https://www.flatpanelshd.com/news/8k

"Hello , do we know something new from samsung regarding this topic.  I have been buying Samsung Tvs all my life but if this continues it seems to me that LG will be my next TV. This is a shame buying a month ago  a Tv that could not play streaming video in 8k. Shame".

I can confirm you're correct: the 2018 and 2019 range 8K TVs can't support the AV1 codec due to hardware restrictions.

So we basically own a 4K tv, that's delusional!! Can we just swap the One Connect Box to solve this issue? I'm asking because they made the One Connect box for this kind of purpose, am i wrong?
