Hi, my newish HDR 1100s won't play Youtube video at 1080p?
I've tried adjusting quality on the playing video but it's max is 720.
Looked in settings in the app, nowt there.
The app also seems a little sluggish whilst navigating.
Reset the app also.
Unit is connected via a short Cat 5E cable to Virgin 50Mb service.

YouTube can't serve video at a different resolution than is provided on the site for that particular item. Are you sure it is available at 1080?

Hi, thanks for the reply.

TV is 1080 compliant, the 1100s plays recorded/live 1080 stuff fine.

My 50mbps is good to, speedtest.net always reports just over 50mbps and 3mbps up.

My simple cheap media box plays 1080 stuff fine on my TV.

The Youtube content I test it on is 1080 as checked on my laptop/phone and media box all play at 1080 on them.

It's a wierd one!

But if your box doesn't request 1080, or if there is a restriction placed on serving HiDef to "smart" boxes, that won't help.

I do have an android based media player attached too my av set up but the in built YouTube app in the humax was one of the reasons I upgraded from my old Foxsat HDR.

720 is fine but I see no reason it shouldn't be capable of showing 1080.

Do you mean that you can play a specific YouTube video in 1080 on the Firestick, but the same video only at 720 on the 1100?
