When I switch between standard and movie mode, in standard mode the blacks/shadows get slightly darker and more natural as opposed to movie mode in which it tends too look slightly washed out?
I'm starting to think that 1180 did something to movie and standard mode. A few of us users have found that , at least in Game Mode or just while gaming, that in HDR games, there will be sharp gradients in the color change while in Game Mode. But if we set the input to PC, with it using Standard as it's picture mode, the gradients are gone, and it's just a smooth transition between colors in HDR. This was not so before 1180.
It also seems that Standard may have had a few things dialed back on it. Because , before 1180, when I tried the PC input for gaming, reds and pinks were a little overblown with the settings I used. But now, with the same settings, reds and pinks are normal looking, as if it was still on Movie Mode.
Though this doesn't seem to happen when watching HDR movies in Movie mode, on my xb1s. The picture is basically perfect.
It may lie on the PS4's end, as that's all I game on with the TV, and use the xb1s for movies. But even in Movie mode, on the PS4, I could see the gradients in the sky, where as in PC mode, it's perfect.
Would be awesome if we had someone with some tools to test this lol
