Question for everyone that’s helped and I appreciate it. I can return my Xbox to BB. It appears they do not have the 399 one anymore and I’m not paying 100 more for a bundle. The only game I play is madden should I just go back to my oringal Xbox and the return the one x for an actually 4K player?

It’s still under the return period since I’m elite plus and at this point I was just going to exchange for a new one but they don’t offer that 399 one just the packaged ones.

Using an Xbox One S for gaming only and ran across something strange. Have had my video settings at 4K since I bought the player. Not a problem as I have a 4K tv and everything's supported. Turned the Xbox on the other day to a blank screen. Could hear sound from the Xbox but no video. Had to reset the console to lowest resolution and from there have only been able to go up to 1080p. If I try to go to 4K it goes blank and reverts to 1080p. No new firmware for the tv or anything in between. Went to troubleshooting page but gave up after "Are you sure you have a 4K television?"
Anyone have a clue what could be up with this?

Maybe an HDMI handshake issue? Try using a different cable, or perhaps just unplug and re-plug in the cable. Sometimes cables can be finicky at 4K.

I have the One X, but it's always streamed in 4K better than the Blu-ray player.

Quick question.

I have a Sony 950g with enhanced format checked, all of the 4k/Dolby visions/hdr options checked on the Xbox One X and no exclamation points on the 4K details in the settings...so when a 4k Disc is playing, is there anyway to confirm hdr/Dolby vision is activated and working?

The above scenario with my Sony 800 player (instead of the Xbox) when I hit the display button on the Sony 4k player, “hdr” will be shown on the screen.

Appreciate any help or confirmation.

Got it.

So is there any onscreen confirmation that it is reading hdr on a 4k Disc? Or is it just something that is assumed if you don’t have any exclamation points in your Xbox 4k settings?

I guess I’m just used to “hdr” showing when I hit display on my x800 that I just want to confirm.

Thanks again.

I use an Xbox One X for disc playback, there's a banner which pops up on the right side of the screen when HDR/DV content is first being output from the console. I'm pretty sure the HDR one says "HDR10", but it might just be "HDR". It's definitely there though, I use that banner to then confirm the HDR picture settings on my LG C8.

EDIT:

Watched Halloween (1978) in 4K last night, the banner/pop-up appears in the upper-right corner and reads "HDR".

I have a Sony 930E and yours should be the same

Go into action menu on your Sony remote and click on picture adjustments it should tell you the HDR info

I just purchase an early black friday deal for a One S, and it should end up costing around $180 for me as a 4k player only (I have no interest in playing XBox games).

But I'm not too familiar with 4k specs and above-average audio/video set ups. So, for a layman like me, will this player be good enough to watch 4k discs on, that will give me a better picture than regular blurays? Or is the $180 price not even worth what this console can produce visually? (I don't own a sound set up, so I'm not concerned with what the audio side of this player can do)

Thanks!

It does produce a better image than a 1080p blu-ray. You just might not get a high end image that a high end dedicated 4k player would give. But you should definitely see a bump in detail and overall image/colors.

Could be where your hiding the white xbox away from everything else, on the floor next to that massive what looks like a SVS PB-16 Ultra. You got another not to far away so maybe those beasts beat that poor xbox senseless and now it has amnesia?

Seriously though my obvious first troubleshooting step would be to try a new HDMI cable. Then I would unplug or if need be reset everything in the chain. Maybe a new handshaking issue that popped up on you.

You will be just fine!!! The XBOX One S is more than capable nowadays as they've done quite a few updates to the player. It's a great bang for the buck.

Is the Xbox One X a decent player for 4K HDR?

I just ordered a new Samsung Q90R 65" TV and matching sound bar on a black Friday special and have a few Ultra HD blurays on order to try it out on. Hoping the Xbox will be acceptable as a bluray player.

Sorry couldn't create a new thread, I am new here

It's acceptable, but there are snappier players out there for not a lot of cash.
