Re: Sony XBR55X850C hdr washed out colors

Hi, can you please tell me how I can test this on my X850C? I want to know if I have this issue as well.

If I want to play the Sony HDR file directly from a USB stick, it should kick into HDR mode automatically without changing any settings right? Since there is no external input involved.

Thanks

If you have an Xbox one S you can test it using Forza 3 , gears of war 4 or Xbox one S Netflix app


You can also test it on your tvs native Netflix app on shows like Hibana spark or Marco Polo. Make sure you have the 4K enabled subscription to Netflix in order to properly check

No XBOX One S, just a PS4, I also don't have a Netflix subscription...

 

So only option for me right now is the Sony HDR demo I guess?

No, your tv should have a native Netflix app. Do you have a 4K subscription with Netflix ? It's the 11.99 a month service. Netflix has 4K content on there.

There's 2 shows Hibana spark and Marco Polo are currently streamed in HDR. Those 2 shows are a way for you to test it out

Oh I'm sorry I didn't see you said you didn't have the subscription. Well you can also test it on the PS4 game dues ex machine which is hdr enabled and yes just Sony demos ATM as well until more hdr content gets released

Ok thanks, will try that. 

 

When I play the demo the TV should flicker into HDR mode and show an "HDR" feedback on the screen or something?

Amazon Prime Video also has HDR content.

Re: Sony XBR55X850C hdr washed out colors

I just played the Sony Camp HDR demo through a USB stick, the TV went directly into HDR (Video) mode, I checked the color space and it changed to BT.2020, well actually it stayed on Auto but when I moved it to BT.2020 it was identical.

 

Absolutely a stunning image, no washed out colors whatsoever, I used "Medium" for Live Color, everything looks great.

 

As I can't test another HDR source atm I can't say if there's an issue, but from what I've seen 4K HDR looks amazing on my X850C

From Samsung,

Ok, it's a little bit to much vibrant, but you'll get to know if your TV is WOW compatible
