Hey guys looking for a bit of advice here regarding using an Xbox One X with this TV. I have a PS4 Pro on HDMI 2, and the Xbox on HDMI 3, so both on the "Enhanced" inputs, and both have Enhanced mode on.
On the PS4 Pro, as I mentioned many pages back, as long as I have Auto Picture Mode automatically selecting Game Mode for me, the picture is good with no banding.
The problem is, for some reason, Auto Picture Mode doesn't recognise the Xbox One X and won't select Game Mode automatically so I have to do it myself. This results in even worse colour banding than I saw with the PS4 Pro if I were to manually select Game Mode with that.
Now, if I manually select "10-bit" instead of "8-bit" colour depth in the Xbox One X settings, the banding is resolved. However, from what I understand, 10-bit really is only meant for HDR enabled games, and the Xbox One X dashboard/home screen where I initially see the banding is SDR, as would any non-HDR games be.
My question is, this seems to be an issue, I'm guessing, with this TVs ability to convert/upscale 8-bit content correctly in Game Mode to "fit" with the 10-bit panel of the TV. Is there any real downside with forcing the Xbox One X into "10-bit" even for SDR content? It totally resolves the banding, and I don't see any other negative picture issues by doing so... but technically it's making the Xbox "upscale" 8-bit to 10-bit right? Is that a bad thing if the TV is failing to do so adequately?
