I've added tentative patches to support 4K resolution and the HEVC codec to my fork. Not tested, since I don't have a Bolt... any guinea pigs? This also entails a new option block, "_tivo_4K", to go along with "_tivo_HD" and "_tivo_SD" (though, in general, I recommend you ignore these, and use the defaults). I've had to guess at acceptable bitrate and buffer size values. The features are independent, i.e. you should be able to use 4K resolution even with the MPEG2 codec, or HEVC at SD or HD resolutions. HEVC should be deliverable in MP4 format via push, or transport stream format via pull (still requires ts=on... gotta fix that).

I look forward to trying this. Its doubtful I would start storing content on my server in HEVC any time soon as no other device I own supports it yet. 4K content is few and far between in availability.
