  1. Fonts messed up


    So I recently moved to a student house. Couldn't reasonably take a TV with me, thus decided to connect my XONEX to a monitor. Given that this is a very basic FHD monitor with only one HDMI input, I connected my PC (an Intel NUC running WIN10) to XBOX, then
    connected XBOX to the monitor and switched it to OneGuide to use the PC. One advantage that I gain from it is that I use a stereo amp hooked to my XBOX by a Toslink cable, and XBOX extracts audio the PC sends via HDMI.

    Now the problem is: fonts. Black letters on a white background appear blueish, yellowish, or reddish. This happens not in all windows and not with every text; however, it is really annoying and makes my eyes bleed. Direct PC-to-monitor connection with either
    of the two cables I use renders fonts adequately.

    I tried disabling font smoothing, cleartype, etc. Calibrated the monitor with the guidance from both the PC and the console. Fonts are still
    [Mod removed- inappropriate] up. Didn't find any setting on XBOX to fix this. Please help.

    :)

    Better pass-through yes. However the receiver may not detect none standard HD resolutions like 1440P. To get around this, you could make a custom resolution in your graphics card settings. But 1080P and 4K would be fine, depending
    on what type of receiver you have, obviously.

    There will be some latency still, but probably negligible compared to the Xbox Pass-through. The Xbox pass-through was never really designed for gaming.

    Hi,

    Do you have anything else you can test via the HDMI in on your console to test the image quality, a DVD or Blu-ray player or other console?

    Do you have any overriding colour calibration settings on your PC itself? This can be found in your PC graphics settings. Is your PC set to 1080P native (1920x1080)? This is the maximum resolution of the HDMI pass-through. Also, make sure you turn off
    HDR on your PC if this is supported by your hardware.

    May I add that while you may gain an increase in the quality of sound using this method, you'll suffer quite a sharp decrease in video quality from the PC. This is due to the video signal from the PC having to be rendered twice. Due to this you'll experience
    a fair amount of screen latency with your PC, especially if you attempt to play PC games will using the Xbox pass-through. A 60 FPS PC game won't feel as responsive as it would if the PC was connected to the monitor directly.

    If your monitor only has one HDMI, buy an simple HDMI switch box. Then you can just flip between them with a button press.

    I am thinking of an HDMI switch. Pity I have to buy one, I hate dongles.

    The very same PC used to be connected to an AV receiver (I used it as a media player, occasionally as a workstation) in my living room back at home, never ran into same issues. Gaming experience was quite smooth, too. Do AV receivers have better HDMI pass-thru
    than XBOX?

    I tried copying it, looks like the coding for the coloured font is messing with the tags.

    Messing around with text colors and fonts is "not my cup of tea". I'm old school, Y0!
