Hey folks, just got PS4 pro and plugged it up to my 4k HDR TCL 6 series, and everything seemed severely dark. Note that the TV is around $700+ so a professional calibration for $200 doesn't make much sense, and it may not even have the deep settings to calibrate it. I've played around with the settings quite a bit and found some settings that help, but daytime in game looks like dusk and nighttime offers little detail. The colors are great when it's something with a bright effect, as well as the overall graphics, but something as simple as making out mild detail of a character from a short distance requires me to get up close and personal to make out the details. Wondering if anyone else has had this experience with this model of TV, and what settings or calibrations you have made to make it better. Is it possible to play in 4K and simply switch off the HDR? Or is it possible to get the deep darks using HDR while still allowing enough light to look like actual daytime and bring out where the brights should be dominant? If your only advice is to get a PC then please take those comments to a PC section of the forum, I'd like to see this thread help others with this fairly popular model of TV. Cnet and plenty of tech review sites quote it as the best TV under $1000 so I imagine I'm not the only lowly PS4/Xbox guy who has purchased it.
