    Epson 5040UB : Your TV setup doesn't support HDR10 for gaming. Games won't be shown in HDR


    Hi,

    I received my new Xbox One X today but found out that the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5040UB is not being recognized by XBOX as a compatible device that can run HDR10 gaming.

    But, this projector definitely supports HDR10 ( BT.2020 ).

    Also, YouTube's videos cleary shows Epson 5040UB running 4k HDR games on PS4 PRO.

    So why Xbox One X games can't be shown in HDR while PS4 PRO can ?

    Is this something that will be fixed soon with firmware update ?

    I think the solution would be to allow HDR10 with 1080p displays, since this projector uses 4k enhancement technology., that's why PS4 did, and hope XBOX can do it as well.

    Thank you.

    :)

    Xbox one x not detecting hdr10 sony x800e

    I'm having the same issue with my 900E. I just tried your fix, and that setting did need to be enabled, but the X still isn't recognizing HDR10.

    Under "Watching Movies & TV" it says "Your TV supports 4K 10-bit at 24hrz" and "Your TV supports HDR video"

    Under "Playing Games" it says "Your TV setup does not support HDR10 for gaming. Games will not be shown in HDR."

    I have also manually enable HDR10 in the TV settings. Not sure what else to do.

    No HDR10 For Games

    I'm having the same issue with my Sony 900E. I just tried your suggestions, but the X still isn't recognizing HDR10. I have the Xbox One X plugged directly into my TV, using the hdmi cable supplied. I have also manually enabled HDR10 in the TV settings.

    Under "Watching Movies & TV" it says "Your TV supports 4K 10-bit at 24hrz" and "Your TV supports HDR video".

    Under "Playing Games" it says "Your TV setup does not support HDR10 for gaming. Games will not be shown in HDR."

    Not sure what else to do.

    Yep. I think there will be a lot of dissapointed people when they find out their 4K HDR TV won't play Xbox One 4K games because they don't have a full 18Gig HDMI pipe.

    The requirement from the X to have 4K @60 and 30 Bits just to play a 4K game seems off. I can see where the bandwidth requirement would be there for 4K @60 with HDR, but I'd like to play the game in either 4K without HDR or 1080P with HDR but the current
    setup on the X (and S) will not let you do this.

    Odd thing is that I played Horizons:Zero Dawn on my PS4 Pro and the first thing it did was tell me I could have either 4K or HDR but not both. I chose HDR and the game looks fantastic. I can't believe the XBOX One X won't do this.

    So, if you have a display that does 4K@ 24 with HDR then the XBOX One X is just a nice game machine that will play videos in HDR for you but none of the UHD features are available to you for gaming.

    Microsoft, surely you can change this and allow HDR in 1080P?

    I expected this to be a difficult answer to find, but your post told me all I need to know right away. I knew I shouldn't have fallen for the hype of this new standard. Caveat emptor.

    Though, the supersampling is amazing. I was first frustrated to not get HDR, but the details are just amazing with the supersampling. You can check it out.

    Also, maybe we'll get a fix soon for 1080P HDR !

    Epson 5040UB : Your TV setup doesn't support HDR10 for gaming. Games won't be shown in HDR

    Here I am a year later with the same issue, different projector. Using the Optoma UHD51A and I can watch 4k HDR movies from a 4k blu-ray disc, but the X-Box says my system is not capable of 4k HDR gaming. So, still no fix eh?
