Maybe the Xbox One S just sucks displaying 4K. I have transformers playing on both TVs synced up almost perfectly. The old TV is 1080 55". I even tried to use the XBOX calibration using their screens and then adjust the TV to the colors match up.
Am I expecting too much from 4K/HDR? I thought there would be considerable improvement. But I literally have to convince myself the $1500 TV is better. Which IMO shouldn't happen when comparing 4K to 5 year old 1080.
For cable they have HD and Non HD channels. To me the new 4K TV on cable(1080p) looks just like I'm viewing a non-hd channel on the old tv.
Also the viewing angle on this TV is horrible. Anything more than 25 degrees off and the "quality" really drops.
