Nah! I've had my 42" Samsung TV for nearly 4 years now and it's not even FULL HD (1080i), but it still looks awesome and runs super smooth.

Out of the box it would not work with my 2010 full HD Toshiba Regza 42" HDTV. After connecting it to a Sony monitor and doing the latest update it worked on the Toshiba tv.

@dobleuve I could not get my Regza to work on version 1.5 of the software. When I updated to 1.51 using my Sony TV the PS4 then worked on my Regza. I presume you updated the PS4 on another TV so connect it to the other TV and enable the HDMI Device Link on the PS4, this is found in Settings - System - Enable HDMI Device Link, make sure this box is ticked before connecting to your Regza. Then connect your PS4 back to your Toshiba and go into the settings on the TV and enable Regza Link (if your TV has this setting). Give that a try it might work. Hopefully it does.
