    Series S bad HDR on a 4K TV


    I’ve tried multiple 4K TVs in my house and while some games look ok in HDR others look like complete trash. I have a TCL R635 and a Sony x900h and with both of these hdr on the series S doesn’t look good. Lots of games look blurry including “state of decay 2” “destiny 2” and forza 4. Of the three I tested state of decay 2 looks worse than ps2 graphics with hdr enabled. The other 2 games don’t look quite as bad but all experienced the blur.

    On both TVs I’ve tried multiple resolutions and the outcome is always the same, the series S is set up as 4K @ 60hz with hdr and auto hdr enabled currently. If I disable hdr then the image looks pretty clean. Don’t know what else to really do.

    I’ve already factory reset, and cleared the cashe so please no comments saying to do that, thank you!

    :)

    Not entirely sure...HDR is something I don't have great knowledge about. It's possible it's related to the 4k upscaling and that that game in particular highlights it more. Best way to test would be to change the Xbox output to 1440p and see how it looks.

    It's because hdr taxes the cpu because you are sharpening the images

    Plus the fact you are trying to push 60fps at 4k

    If you look at the white papers and multiple articles running it at 4k you should expect performance issues and graphical because of the upscaling

    It's like the ps4 pro upcaling

    As soon as you have fast moving pictures it shows

    Yakuza runs at 900p 60hz

    Running games at higher resolutions will only affect game performance this is why devs lock the resolutions for series s

    Ok also what would cause Hdr stutter problems? I notice this in destiny 2. Getting occasional micro stutters but only with HDR enabled. Seems to be the only game I noticed it in this far.

    My guess would be it's because the Series S doesn't have 4k Natively...it's just an upscaled version of 1440p and, as HDR sharpens colours etc, it would highlight the fact it's just an upscaled picture.

    If you are comparing it to, say, a One X, then it would be different as that console had Native 4k

    Hi KnightMawk!

    Error (91d70000) is in regards to, "4K is supported by your TV, but not at 60Hz. You won't be able to upscale to 4K, but, depending on your TV, you may still be able to play some 4K and HDR content. To see what your TV supports, choose 4K TV details."
