I bought the PS4 Pro a few months back, and have it hooked up to a Panasonic TX-50CX802B. Previously, I had a normal PS4, and that played Blu Ray discs lovely, had no problems. The PS4 Pro, though, seems to throw in skipped frames all over the place. Usually when a scene changes, but not exclusively, and usually every 15-30 seconds or so (that I notice). It also seems to have even more motion flicker*, but I'm very sensitive to that, so it might be my imagination.

As the PS4 didn't do this, I suspect the PS4 Pro is the culprit. I've tried changing all the settings on the TV, inc. switching all the image processing off entirely, but nothing helps, and the PS4 Pro seems to have very little in the way of tinkering to do.

The only possible explanations I can think of are:

1. The PS4 Pro is a bit of a lame blu ray player - I don't think this is the case, as the previous PS4 was fine
2. The HDMI cable can't cope - I used the one that came with my last PS4, not with the Pro, as I thought they'd be the same
3. The TV can't cope in some way with the input coming from the PS4 Pro - maybe there's some setting in the TV that can't keep up with a 4K input?
4. Something is faulty
5. Something else I haven't thought of!

Do I need a new TV, HDMI cable, PS4 Pro, or is there some setting I've missed that might help?

Any help hugely appreciated, it's driving me potty!


* Not judder, just a flickering in high contrast edges during motion, always noticed it on this TV. I usually have it on 'min' 24 frame smoothing; medium and above looks too soapy for me.

Way late, but may be of some help to someone...use the cable that came with the Pro, be sure the HDMI port on the TV you're using is set to enhanced, or whatever name Panasonic gives it.

How does the Sony Playstation 4 compare to current crop of Blu-ray players?

Have a Playstation 4 and was wondering how it compares to the latest Blu-ray players regarding image and audio. I have burned more Blu-ray disks than I have watched Blu-ray movies.

Just got a Harry Potter Blu-ray disk at the thrift store and plugged it in. Looked good and sounded pretty good on the Sony.

I've just recently set up a HT in 7.1.

The Sony is certainly slow to load.
