HDR mode


New Member
I got a new 55" 4K UHD TV by Philips and I have my PS4 Connected and I am trying to turn on HRD mode but my PS4 says the tv Doesn't support it but it does, MY TV HAS HDR! how do I turn it on? do I have to use a certain HDMI port on the TV or can I use any HDMI Port?

I don't know what the model number of your TV is, but in general, this is what you do:

1. Press the Menu button on the remote.
2. Choose Setup.
3. Navigate to TV Settings.
4. Choose Installation.
5. Select Preferences.
6. Select HDMI mode.
7. Choose the HDMI port your Xbox One X is connected to.
8. Switch to Normal from Legacy.

And note:
Most recent 4K displays from Philips also offer HDR10 support, however, must be enabled on a per-port basis. By default, Philips TVs are configured to run in a "Legacy" mode, to maintain compatibility, while "Normal" mode must be used for HDR colors to be displayed.
To Upscale this HDR:

To enable HDR upscaling, press the “Settings” button on the TV remote control and select:
[All Settings] > [Picture] > [Advanced] > [Contrast] > [HDR-upscaling] > [ON]

It is all a simple google search. :)
Hmmm - our TV blew up on Christmas night - so we got a new one in the boxing day sales. It has HDR mode .. thanks for this info ,... going to try it now :cool:
