  1. Screen dims when playing or viewing HDR content.


    I reported a similar issue not long ago but specified it was only HDR games that had the issue of the screen dimming. I only just discovered today that it seems to affect both games and apps.

    I have a 4K, UHD, HDR Hisense television with an Xbox One X connected. Whenever I attempt to play or watch HDR content the screen dims significantly. It doesn't affect the entirety of HDR games and apps. What I mean is that a game or app may have HDR content and the screen will only dim when it is displaying HDR content. When it's not displaying HDR content the screen will not be dimmed.

    I have the latest firmware update on my TV and have even attempted to reset it along with the Xbox yet the issue still persists. The only way to resolve this issue is by disabling HDR10 in Xbox settings. I'm honestly not sure if it's a problem with my TV, my Xbox or a combination of both.

    Xbox One X HDR dimming problem!

    Hello,

    My xbox one x has an issue with loading games in HDR. When a game or netflix starts up. My screen dims dark. Like it fade away. All colours are dark and not bright.

    I have a 4K/HDR tv with a 10 bit panel. And it doenst work.

    I tried everything. Switching settings from my tv and xbox, hard reset, different HDMI 2.0 port and cabel. Only HDR in 8 bit mode doenst go dark. But I know my TV has an working 10 bit panel that works with other content beside my xbox one x.
    Same here. It looks as if you have screen dim on as a power saving feature. The problem with this bug is that dims the screen as soon as you start and play an hdr game or app.

    Xbox One S HDR Bug

    I am having a similar issue on my Xbox One S connected directly to my Samsung JS8500 tv. When I open the netflix app the screen becomes very dim and the screen doesn't return to normal until the app is quit. HDR content looks great using the Netflix app
    on my TV by the way, not dim at all.

    Hdr washed out colors and dimmer during hdr content

    Why are there so many posts on this all over the interwebs with no solution anywhere?

    I also have the ks8000 and all hdr content is dim. Colors are ok but far to dim. Driving at dusk in Forza Horizon 3 in the jungle is unplayable without adding dynamic contrast or changing the in game brightness/ hdr brightness to unreasonable levels...
    which washes out the screen.

    Playing in game mode, backlight 20, dynamic contrast off, smart led high, eco settings all off. Specifically using rting settings.

    Ps4 Pro players saying they dont have the issues
    I've been having the same issue I just go to something colorful and the color comes back the dimness only happens when games start

    Screen dims slightly after 5 minutes.

    … it does say this one that link you gave - When using the NU8000 for HDR PC Gaming, there is currently an issue with the 'Standard' picture mode where the screen became very dim and we were unable to change it. So maybe
    there are issues with this TV and dimness.
