My question is about Sony XBR-49X900E, and how its visual output interacts with PlayStation4 and the game Destiny 2. I am not a technical expert, and I’m asking for help, so i’ll try to give as much detail as I can.
After the most recent TV software update (8.0.0), the visuals in Destiny 2 on PS4 have been out of whack. I believe there’s latency/lag in the visual output, which is essentially de-synchronizes the visuals from the PS4 controller’s input. The end result is my video game character’s movements are “bouncy” and disorienting, and the horizontal first-person camera rotation is way different than what I’m accustomed to. My aim is erratic (moreso than usual). This sucks!
I was advised to ensure the TV is in “Game mode”. It is.
I was advised to ensure that “Motionflow” is off. It is.
I tried reseting and readjusting the brightness and contrast settings.
The problem didn’t really improve.
Eventually, I completely dusabled HDR in both the PS4 settings, and the in-game settings menu.
Additionally, I turned off the “Deep Color Output” in the PS4 settings, and that change did improve things... somewhat, but the visual experience still isn’t “right”. Playing without HDR doesn’t bother me. But playing with visual latency (or any other similar anomaly) is unacceptable when split-second reactions and precise camera aiming are requirements to play the game.
Are there any other “post-production” effects or toggles that I should investigate or disable in the TV settings?
Was there anything introduced or set-as-default in software 8.0.0 that would explain this problem?
Any other advice on what one should try in this situation?
