Re: Sony XBR55X850C hdr washed out colors

That is correct, and if you read the earlier posts in this thread another user with the same TV is experiencing the exact same problem

Not just that I've noticed from my experience with people experiencing the same problem

The problem seems to be with 4K tvs that received hdr compatibility through firmware updates such as these late 2015 models

This is pure speculation but perhaps this is a firmware issue. I've contacted Sony several times about it and they're still not sure I've tried all settings from removing motion flow off

Adjusting hdr video on but every time I enter actual HDR content the tv will flicker on showing that it is in fact in hdr mode, and shows it on picture mode, but the colors look dimmer and darker and washed out

Also I have the picture mode set to standard or vivid depending on what I'm watching . Hdr content currently looks more washed out then even standard my friend

Re: Sony XBR55X850C hdr washed out colors

I feel your pain man, you're not alone. I'm just currently disappointed
With this 850c tv ATM. I bought Sony brand because I've always
Trusted them to be on top of the technological advances

I was on the phone with a Sony rep and they're saying this issue is going to be resolved with another firmware updated, I hope the guy was telling the truth

Re: Sony XBR55X850C hdr washed out colors

I have the same problems with KD-43XD8305B , if i put Sony_4K_HDR_Camp on usb stick , and run it from tv , everything looks good , hdr is auto on. if i play it from pc (gtx 980) , i need to adjust settings of hdr manually from tv for it to work (it does not autodetect) , also shadow warrior 2 (game) , has a setting for hdr display , when i turn it on (and i turn hdr on from tv) everything looks washed out ! if it's not gonna be resolved soon , i will return it (its just one week since i bought it ) or send it in service !

You cannot play HDR video on Windows right now. This is why you have to manually set it to HDR because it is not an HDR signal going through.

This mean your computer is sending an SDR signal.

Microsoft will publish an update in the year to come to add native support to HDR

Finally do not confuse HDR image setting and HDR output. HDR in game setting exist since half-life 2. This is not however the same kind of HDR we're talking about.

THERE IS CURRENTLY NOT A SINGLE HDR GAME ON WINDOWS RIGHT NOW.

Check this problem:

 

We fed several HDR-mastered demo videos on a USB stick to the Bravia X85C, and upon playback of each clip, the 4K TV correctly read the metadata, automatically kicking into its [HDR Video] mode. Certain footage (for example those from LG designed to show off OLED’s HDR potential) looked excellent, although owing to the lack of local dimming, blacks inevitably turned grey when both bright and dark elements had to co-exist on screen.

The widely available Life of Pi and Exodus HDR demos, on the other hand, appeared washed out with elevated black level (in fact, the SDR version looked more contrasty!), suggesting that the wrong PQ (perceptual quantizer) EOTF was being applied. It’s very possible that these clips were optimised for Samsung SUHD televisions only… the true acid test will come once HDR content on Ultra HD Blu-ray arrives early next year.

I was answering the other guy, not you. I don't even think he has the same TV

He was completely confused about HDR.

He said however he like it when playing HDR file on the TV
