    Windows is not detecting my 10-bit HDR tv but is instead showing 8-Bit.

    But windows doesn't seem to detect it as an HDR TV.


    OS: Windows 10

    Graphics : INTEL UHD 620

    Appreciate your support.

    Windows 10 1803 HDR problem


    I'm having the same issue as you except my TV is the Sony X900E. Windows 10 only shows 8bit RGB with dithering with the 1803 update whereas before (under what would've been Windows 10 version 1709) it was showing as 10bit YCbCr 422. The Nvidia Control panel won't let me select anything beyond 8bit either whereas in 1709 I could choose 10bit.

    Playing HDR content such as on the Netflix Windows 10 app doesn't change the bit depth in advanced display settings either. So now I'm wondering whether I'm just getting faux-HDR (8bit FRC) instead of the full 10-bit HDR output that my panel is actually capable of whenever I playback HDR content on my PC?

    Speaking to people on forums they show me screenshots of their advanced display settings in Windows and it says 10bit YCbCr 422 for them so not sure what I'm doing wrong.

    Did you find a solution?

  3. Poor quality text when using HDR

    Hi Don,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    I can understand that it must be difficult for you when things are not working as it should.

    1. What is the make and model of the TV and the computer?
    2. Are you facing the same issue even on computer or is it only with the TV monitor?
    I would suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below to turn off ClearType for the HDMI output connected to TV keeping your regular computer display. To do so,

    1. Click on Start, type in ClearType and click on
      Adjust ClearType text option.
    2. The ClearType Text Tuner app will be opened on the screen.
    3. Uncheck > Turn on ClearType and click on
      Next.
    4. You’ll be able to see the options such as Yes, I want to tune all monitors now and
      No, only tune the monitors that I select.
    5. Select No, only tune the monitors that I select and click on the preferred monitor (TV) and follow the onscreen prompts.
    6. On the next page, select a text sample that looks most readable to you and click on the Next button.
    7. Repeat the same step on subsequent pages. You will see 5 screens with text samples in a row.
    8. Click on the Finish button to accept the changes you made.

    Meanwhile, regarding the issue with the distorted colors and text quality I would suggest you to follow the steps below and check if it works for you.

    Steps to change the display settings to match the resolution of the display:

    1. Press Windows + I key on your keyboard, click on
      System.
    2. Click on Display.
    3. You will see an option to Select and rearrange displays, click on the display associated with the TV.
    4. Scroll down to select the ‘Recommended’ option under
      Scale and layout to Change the size of text, apps, and other items, and
      Resolution.

    For more information I would also suggest you to refer the article:
    HDR and WCG color settings in Windows 10.

    Hope it helps.

    Wndows does not detect HDR tv (10Bit)

    Windows wont display 4k and HDR simultaneously.

    I recently got a 4k HDR tv (Samsung UE43NU7100). I connect my PC with a normal HD monitor and the 4k HDR tv. When turning on HDR on my tv the resolution of the 4k tv (3840x2160) gets set back to normal HD (1920x1080) in windows settings. Windows is completely
    updated, my AMD Radeon R9 390 8gb graphics card is up to date and supports and displays in 4k when HDR is off. My Xbox one X displays both 4k and HDR perfectly simultaneously. I use a high speed HDMI 2.0 cable. I have no idea why my pc does this and cant find
    anything about windows not being able to do 4k and HDR at the same time. It also doesn't work if I only connect the tv instead of the monitor and tv. Any suggestion?
