I have an 8K tv and I will be getting an R5 soon and I was wondering if you can play 8K video direct from the R5 to the tv?
Obviously I will need an appropriate cable etc.
Has anyone tried it?
No, the HDMI port on the R5 doesn't support 8k output and the R5 also can't pretend to be a regular USB drive. I think the only option is that your TV speaks PTP. Another option would be to use a usb card to read the SD/CFe from your TV.

I'd start with you TV. What type of 8K input does it accept, what format? I'd plan at a minimum on converting the file type to a supported one. A video virtually always benefits from editing.
