    full HD playback on TV compared with PC playback

    hi guys

    I'm getting a bit annoyed now with this.

    when I'm playing the same file from TV the image is so clear, vivid, colors are so bright.

    and when I'm playing from my Pc, that's a bit of a dull experience.

    what am I doing wrong here?
    I have the latest codec k-lite codec pack with my windows 10 64b

    my videocard is an ati Radeon HD 4600 with hdmi connection to my tv

    You haven't told us anything about the colour gamut of the video file or the TV so it's a little hard to guess.

    The first thing to do is to try the different pixel format options in catalyst control center. Particularly limited and full RGB.

    If that doesn't solve it then it may be a colour space issue, particularly if your TV isn't sRGB. What colour space was the video designed for and is the result via your TV's player or your PC more accurate (not better looking, more accurate)?

    Check the TV's picture mode. When connecting to the PC is it automatically going into "Gaming Mode"? This cuts out some image processing on the telly to bring down the lag input rating which is what possibly is giving you the difference.

    hi


    TV is a Samsung one
    samsung.com/de/…XZG




    I will check all this

    any other suggestions?

    Looks like that TV is sRGB/Rec. 709 which is the standard colour space for PC output. They could still be treating a video file tagged for a different colour space differently but that is the most common colour space so it's less likely, especially if you've tried a range of video files from different sources and they all behave the same way.

    Have you renamed the HDMI input you're using to connect your computer to 'PC'? Samsung TVs can often need that to stop inappropriate behaviour like overscan.
