    I recently bout a 55” TCL S- series tv (4K HDR). God of war (ps4) is capable of HDR, but I can’t seem to find the right settings to calibrate. Do I need a ps4 pro?

    Sony issued a firmware upgrade to make the PS4 HDR capable did your machine get it?

    Thx. I figured it out. Apparently hdmi needs to be set to 2.0. Whatever that is.

    Don’t be scammed! Tvs that, on the box, reads: “HDR compatible”, is not always true. Many TVs (lower end) can accept the HDR signal, but can’t display it properly. Nice marketing bs.

    You need a PS4 Pro to run true 4K on a 4K compatible HDTV.
