That’s interesting. You can quickly check the bitrate while streaming in Netflix by clicking the options button on the remote. Likely it is a lower bitrate since it is not a PS4 Pro.Tried all combinations of black levels and nothing seems to make a difference. Also I’m on the base PS4 so not sure if anything else you mentioned applies.
It really is bizarre because I’ve triple checked and every picture setting is exactly the same across the board for SDR content.
