So I finally gave in and sold my Samsung 60F8500 plasma and went OLED. I got an awesome deal for the 55B7A at Best Buy and they even accepted a 10% OFF coupon they emailed me. I got the smaller one for my bedroom to try it out and see if I like it. It will be primarily used for gaming on my Xbox One X and some Cable and Netflix every now and then. Played some Planet Earth II on Netflix (upgraded to the 4K plan) and the set looks awesome! I'm thinking about purchasing a 65C7P for my living room now lol.
I do have some questions though regarding the Xbox One X settings. It recognized the TV was 4K and switched over just fine but the Xbox shows that HDR is not supported by my TV in the Xbox Settings. I made sure the HDR was set to on through the TV settings and I used rtings.com calibration settings. I also tried some GAME mode settings as well but neither has the HDR enabled through the Xbox settings. I have the TV hooked up to my Denon X1400H receiver and all my HDMI cables are from Monoprice (4K @ 60Hz, HDR, 18Gbps, 28AWG, YUV 4:4:4). The reason I bought the Denon receiver was because their website states it supports HDR (HLG / Dolby Vision) on all their inputs. What am I doing wrong?
Also, for any gamers on here I have one thing that really bothers me and I don't know if it's a setting I can change or just something inherent in HDR or OLED's in general... I play Destiny 2 and I fired it up to just test everything out. Looks great, no lag, etc. However, I noticed something strange when running around The Tower (social space/area). Anything that was lit by the sky looked awesome and really bright, however anything in the shadows looked really really dark with no detail. When I would walk between the shadow area to the lit area it looks like the TV dynamically adjusts to the light/darkness. So the really really dark areas suddenly look more visible with more detail, it's hard to explain. Basically, when in a lit area looking into the dark area it's super dark and no detail... walking INTO the dark area I can notice the TV dynamically change and suddenly the there's detail and not as dark while standing in the dark areas. So I played some Crucible (what they call PvP) and luckily got a dark map to test it out... it was really unplayable because it kept changing brightness depending how dark the area of the map I was playing in was. I died a few times due to not being able to properly see when it would suddenly get really dark. Can anyone help me understand why this TV does this and if I can do anything to prevent it from happening?
