Second Post! Was suggested I post this here instead of Display Calibration - hoping you guys can lend a hand in seeing if this is something that can be resolved!

 

I picked up a PS4 today and hooked it up to my KDL-40EX500, the first thing I noticed is that the TV locked out all display options but two gaming modes, nothing else was available. 

 

The big problem I'm having is the text rendering, it's TERRIBLE, all the on-screen text is aliased to hell and small text in a lot of cases is for the most part illegible. Bigger text is legible but looks terrible. I've never had this problem before.

 

I'm not sure where I should even start to attempt to fix this, but any help or tips would be appreciated!

 

Thanks!

Turns out all that was needed was a Firmware update, never even occurred to me.

Thanks for your post. I have the exact TV and I also needed to update the TV. I will probably not open my ps4 until Christmas. Did this update solve all your issues?
