picture qaulity, Roku 6 series 4K TV 2018 vs Roku streaming stick 4K

so both my Tv and my Roku stick are 4K, what I don’t get is how the picture qualities are different. The Roku stick seems to get a better picture ?

Roku doesn’t make TV’s. They sell the software to various companies such as Hisense, TCL or ONN. So you own a Roku TV (some manufacturer) and you own a Roku Stick plugged into a separate TV correct? Is the Roku Stick plugged into a higher quality TV then your Roku TV? Seems to me like your comparing apples to oranges. There is a lot more info you need to provide. So you own something like a TCL Roku TV series 6? What type of TV is the Stick plugged into? Are both devices on the 2.4GHz or 5.0GHz? Are both side by side getting the same bandwidth results? What are you watching to benchmark your picture quality?

Many TVs have different settings for the native display and each HDMI port. They can usually be toggled to use the same settings across all inputs. But it's possible the settings for your Roku Stick in the HDMI port are different from the primary display settings. Since you said 6 Series, I think that's the TCL brand. I've never used one of those, so don't know specifically what settings it might have. Even though it's using the Roku OS, each manufacturer can tweak the menus.

Which Roku Stick model do you have? Which Roku TV model do you have? Your using the same TV for both. So it’s just a matter of settings. I use a TCL Roku TV and love the picture quality.
