Trying to get the One X to recognize HDR. My PS4 pro detects it and works fine. Some quick facts about the TV

panasonic 58dx800c
2 HDMI ports (HDCP 2.2)
2 HDMI very 1.4 ports

Under 4k TV details here is what's yellow

Your TV setup does not support 4k 10bit @ 50Hz apps can an use 4k 8 bit


Your TV setup does not support 4k 10bit @ 60Hz apps can an use 4k 8 bit

What is red.
Under playing games
Your TV does not support HDR10 games will not play in HDR.



Green

Your TV supports 4k UHD (60hz)



Trying to figure this out.. probably just a setting that needs different eyes.

lol that's what I was just about to say, you have to activate it on the x1, which seemed a little weird

It does, but I went through and had the Xbox set up correctly but it still was not seeing it... Then it went through a time where it would only see 108Op... Had to reset it back to out of the box once. Put in all the settings again still nothing. Went through the TV and it had either mode one or Two and I changed that and bam. On the PS4 it's just plug and play... Oh well it works now and I am going to try some Xbox enhanced games toight Like Recore and Gears 4.
Also download Halo 5, not a fan of Halo but I want to see 4k stuff lol

It is, before I left for work I started Gears 4.. looks pretty nice.

I am thinking about trying Forza Horizon 3... I may take @dustin11 advice and just try it again.

Just to let you know too, the Hotwheels and Forzen Mountain DLCs are both each only $5 this week. They're both fantastic.

FH3 also just got an enhanced pack as of 2 weeks ago. It clocks in at only around 650mb as well, native 4k textures, Native 4k resolution, HDR, and better shadows that are now dynamic.

I had a similar problem with the Sony TV I just bought. I have a PS4 Pro and an Nvidia Shield TV - both support HDR. My TV and receiver both support ARC.

The issue is, my Sony TV only has TWO FREAKING HDMI INPUTS that support HDR. That sounds fine, since I have two devices.

Well, genius Sony made the second HDR input the ARC HDMI port (which runs to my receiver).

BRILLIANT!!!

My TV only has HDMI inputs making it much more tricky to play my retro consoles. Time to invest in some better connections now I guess.

Gears 1, 3 and 4 and Recore. The rest I borrowed. I was looking for something else on GP I just don't see anything else. How often do they add stuff?

I don't have the app, but am I able to get something via the app and have it download to the Xbox while I am at work? Like on PS4? Or do I have to be there to do it?

I've not played with the app much, so I'm not really sure what you can and can't do with it. I think you can add games to your que, but I don't think the game will actually download while you're gone, you'll need to turn your console on before the DL will begin.

Game Pass adds 5 new games minimum the 1st of every month. I've not looked to see whats been added this month.

Recore really only added HDR from what I hear. It was an indy game so the visuals aren't top tier. Really fun platformer though, I had a blast with it.

Not sure if this helps, but I was surprised to find out that my Denon HDMI A/V Receiver takes component inputs (like the HD Wii cables for example), upconverts it, then send it out through HDMI yes It also has composite (R/W/Y) and S-video for other systems. I haven't tried those inputs, but I would imagine it upconverts those signals too (since they are all analog, just like component).

Maybe all you need is an upconverting receiver? You can probably find one used on Craigslist.

I actually scored mine (which was $900 when new!) from a yard sale for $2. The guy thought the rear channels didn't work, but they work just fine. I think he didn't know how to work the surround sound settings. raspberry

last time I bought something with the app it worked and it downloaded, but you have to set to instant on, like the ps4 in rest mode. it said something along the lines of it will try to install but you may have to go into your library from the console and do it.

For games there should be a section called "enhanced games" which will filter a list of games which have been updated for the X. For movies you just need to look for the little magnifying glass icon (top right of the screen when browsing the store, I think) and then just search for "UHD" and then filter the search to only show movies.

Found my issue.. by accident really. I have a VPN on and was looking at the store via my phone so I was looking at the American one... Well you have way more options. Fudge.

Anyway, stumbled on a few articles that were critical of MS and there store issue. Apparently if so.eone bought the HD version they can't upgrade it or even go back and rebuy it, that seems like a pretty bad flaw also the lack of proper filters (UHD or 4k for example) and or a specific category.

It's not just MS that does not seem to know what to do with UHD, .y optic provider gives my limited movie options and even fewer version for rent... Same with MS, so.e I can buy in UHD but not rent. Then Sony simply has no option.

They are really forcing you to use Kodi to get content you want but nobody provides it.
