If I drop the backlight and the contrast down closer to 68 things begin to clear up but its not bright enough to light up the whole cave. Like you can see the whole cave but it just looks crushed. Places like Bleakfalls Barrow I know are old graphics but this is just awful even to those 2011 standards.
What in the world could possibly be wrong? Could it be my xbox? Is it going out maybe? It is an original xbone after all. I need to find the calibration settings someone has found on this tv but I cant find ANYWHERE that has them.
Hmmm... While of course I can't see what you're seeing, whatever you're experiencing does *not* sound like calibration settings. It sounds like a mismatch between the console and the TV. That said, I would think the Calibration menu of the XBOX would be significantly off as well if that were the case, so I'm pretty confused by what's going on. If the Calibration screens look right, games should look right.
Here are the things I'd try (in the order I'd try them):
- Make sure TV firmware is up to date.
- I'm assuming you already looked for HDMI Deep Color or Enhanced and either turned it on or didn't find it?
- This really shouldn't be it, but try turning Black Level from Low to High and see if it helps. (If not, put it back where it was.)
- Try turning off any Dynamic features (Dynamic Contrast, etc.). If they're already off, you could try turning them on to see if they help, but generally you should still be able to get a good pictures without these. (The exception might be Dynamic Tone Mapping, though some gamers do like Dynamic Contrast.)
- Try the other HDMI port, just to rule that out.
- Try a different HDMI cable, if you're able.
- If you can try outputting the XBOX to a different display, that would be worth seeing to to make sure it's not the XBOX, though if it never looked right on this TV, and it did on your previous TV, I doubt that's the source of the problem.
Regarding calibration settings, for whatever reason, I can't find anything for this particular model either. Sorry. =/
