Why not just calibrate your tv under the Game setting? But yes, switching to Live Football Mode is a completely different setting. I have the Sony 900E and play on Game mode with HDR on and the pic looks photo realistic. I would suggest rtings.com for TV calibration settings if you aren't liking your picture.

Tried rtings.com, wasn't impressed, I like the brightness better with HDR off, it looks good either way.

When in HDR mode, do you have X-tended Dynamic Range and Auto Local Dimming set to high as well as Brightness Maxed out? But ya, with it off the colors pop but don't look realistic to me.

I have the Sony X800d 43 inch as well and agree HDR looks fantastic although I am not using rtings recommended settings.

As with all HDR sets you just need to fool around with your TV's picture settings until you get it perfect. It took me awhile but I am really happy with the results. To my eyes MLB The Show 19 colors really pop and are vivid while still looking very natural and realistic.

And as TheBleedingRed21 said the Sony X800d is no where near an elite TV so with higher end TV's you should be able to see even better HDR results.

I thought Dynamic Contrast was known to crush blacks and was recommended to be set to off for that reason.

I have a Samsung NU8000 and picture looks so much better without HDR on. Picture is a lot darker with HDR

Iím on a Sony 930e


Iíve had this issue before. Sometimes you have to make sure everything is turned on in your ps4 video output settings. Make sure those are correct first.
