Confused With HDR Playback
Using my regular PS4 as I haven't yet gone Pro due to HDD issues and after 2 years I finally decided to start playing The Last Of Us again as I never got very far and got sidetracked. Well after installing the update file it automatically detected that my tv was HDR capable and I was able to play with HDR. I did confirm this as when I hit info on the tv I saw the HDR icon just like when watching a 4K BD & the game clearly looked like HDR was enabled, so it's working and looks great but I'm not sure how? Because for two reasons I read that the PS4 must be hooked directly to the tv and not through any AVR or switch for HDR to work and I'm running mine through my AVR, also I'm not using a premium certified cable on my PS4 like I am with my two 4K BD players, I figured why bother till I get the pro. I'm currently using a cheap rocket fish high speed 1.4 cable(at least I think it's 1.4)so how am I playing in HDR? Tomorrow I'm going to try Uncharted 4 & Infamous: Second Son and see if they also work with HDR.
