A 4K splitter sounds like a good idea for making it future proof.

However, I'm not aware of any DVR that outputs in 4K because nothing is broadcast in that yet. You can get 4K on some streaming services like Netflix, but I believe you have to use a streaming box for that such as a Roku or your 4K TV.

Please correct me if I'm wrong about that.

I believe 4K broadcast TV is coming, but I'm only aware of it being available over-the-air (OTA). The bandwidth required for 4K is substantial, so it'll be years before it's available on cable or satellite.
