How to adjust the display settings on your Xbox One console

Post  KENT HAMMER on Tue Dec 03, 2013 12:11 pm

Did you even know you could improve the colour depth on your console??

Well now you do!

Adjust the display settings

Your Xbox One console supports a variety of display settings. It’s easy to select the settings that are best for your television. Here's how:

Press the Xbox button to return to Home.
Press the Menu button, and then select Settings.
In the Console settings column, select Display & sound.
Choose the display and picture settings appropriate for your TV.
Note Resolution settings are selected automatically. Typically, you shouldn’t have to adjust these settings.

You can also select Calibrate HDTV in the Display column for a walk-through on how to configure the optimal settings for your TV.

Note You may also want to calibrate your TV to get the best visual experience for games, films and TV programmes. For information on how to calibrate your TV, refer to the TV manufacturer’s documentation.

Explanation of display settings

TV resolution

Your Xbox One console supports the following resolutions. These resolutions are standard for HDTVs:

720p
1080p
Your Xbox One should automatically select the setting that best matches your TV.

TV connection

There are three settings for handling the detection of available resolutions. You can specify one of the following TV connection settings:

HDMI (Auto-detect). We recommend that you leave the TV connection on this setting, which lets your Xbox One console select the TV resolution based on information provided by the TV.
DVI. We recommend that you select this setting only if you are using an HDMI-to-DVI converter.
Note If you select DVI, HDMI audio will be disabled. You won’t have audio unless you’re using Optical Audio.
HDMI. Select this setting if you know there’s a resolution that’s supported by both your Xbox One console and TV, but that resolution is not listed. This setting lets you select the resolution supported by both your console and TV.
Note If you select a resolution that’s not supported by your TV, wait 15 seconds until the confirmation dialogue disappears.

Colour depth

Colour depth is the number of bits of colour data that are used to display each pixel. True colours use 24 bits of colour data to represent the three RGB colours. If you know that your TV supports Deep Colour, you can select a higher colour depth.

Colour space

We highly recommend that you leave the colour space setting set to TV (RGB Limited). RGB Limited is the broadcast standard for video content and is intended for use with televisions.

Helpful post bud, now they just need to do something about the euro 50hz signal outputting at 60hz and becoming juddery, allowing the optical port to output 5.1 and doing something with one guide and the media centric xbox one might actually be useful for media! Very Happy

Just searched for this having been away for quiet a while.

Got a new TV (Sony 50KDLW289) recently and have really been digging into the depths of the settings.

Was having trouble getting a good setting for my xbox despite trying the calibration tool and the Know How Blu-ray.

Have since found a deeper display setting which allows you to set the dynamic range settings for inputs. Setting this to limited really seems to help stop getting washed out blacks. A few more weeks of tinkering are in store now doubt but if anyone has a Sony TV this really helps. Another setting I found pretty quickly was the eco setting which uses a light señor to adjust brightness based on ambient light. If you haven't already found it then I recommend you do and turn that bugger off. Very Happy
