All my HDR content color appears flat and lifeless. My standard PS4 looks amazing in LDR, but as soon as I enable HDR in Monster Hunter, Destiny 2 or any of my other games that support HDR, all the colors wash right out.
Herer is what I have tried to remedy the issue: • Cycle the power on both the TV and PS4 • Check for updates to the firmware on both the TV and PS4 • Calibrated the TV via some recommendations I found on rtings.com. (I have since reset those values to get back to factory settings.) • I have set my RGB output on my PS4 to RGB Limited
The HDR output remains decidedly bland; a bowl of plain oatmeal for the eyes. Whether via the PS4, or via built-in streaming channels, the HDR is not working as expected.
In searching through various forums I have read this may be due a tone-mapping issue, perhaps related to Roku’s implementation of HDR10. I’m not sure, since I am still pretty new to HDR. Is this something that can be fixed in a firmware update, or am I stuck without HDR for the life of the TV?
